I fail to see why it had to disconnect all the time when not actively used. Other apps seem to make that work but this one times out constantly. Also missed message notifications don't show you the contents of the message. Seems an easy one to solve. And last but not least the Lync 2013 app (yes, it's been 2 years by now) still doesn't contain the possibility to see screen sharing from the presenter... GoToMeeting and WebEx seem to have this covered. The IOS app of Lync too, so what's up with that?!

I'm getting thrown out of meetings very often, I can understand that it's a problem if the network is bad, but why can't the App reconnect automatically? Also my phone displays 2 (or 3 in call) notification icons, for running, logged in, and in call. I'd like to switch off the two former. My phone allows distinguishing between important and unimportant notifications, but this doesn't seem to be supported by SfB.! Why is split screen not supported?! Would be very useful!

An utter disaster. Lacks features (e.g. muting, screen sharing etc). Extremely unreliable, there seem to be more lines of code in this thing for error messages than actual functionality. // Edit: it's been going worse and worse, now it won't even work at all. How a company with the power of Microsoft can do such a disastrous job at mobile apps is beyond amazing.
