Okay when you find Skype hotspot My question is how am I supposed to know when I am near a Hotspot? Notifications are sparse. There needs to be a map of known partner locations too. So far, the fact that in my experience abroad I have not been able to use it in a huge city like Paris has been hugely disappointing. The one time I got notified of a Hotspot being nearby, I was already connect to a free Hotspot.
This is not Skype to chat, this is a way to connect to paid WiFi connections Its confusing, but this app is to connect to paid WiFi (i.e. airports) by using Skype WiFi instead of paying the WiFi provider. Your first 30 minutes are free, and you can use it to chat on Skype or surf the internet. Its supposed to be more convenient because you already have a Skype account and (maybe) Skype credit. You can use your Skype credit to buy more airtime instead of having to break out your credit card and pay on the network. Its supposed to be a convenience app.
Useless and overpriced Couldn't get it to connect anywhere in Bangkok so no wifi for me. Back in the UK in my local coffee shop with rubbish free wifi I decided to piggyback on the BT openzone and pay for Skype wifi. . To my horror 11pence a minute at that price is rather watch the world go by.
Rubbish.. No matter of my location around Europe, the quality of calls (not to mention video calls) is VERY low. I will try anything else but this one. On my laptop has the same poor quality. Skype used to be better in the past. To avoid anger & upset, look for something else people.
Won't Start This app won't activate at all. Opens for a second then auto closes itself. Its not even worth 1star. i wish i could give it negative stars, this is literally worthless, Good job Devs, good job
USELESS!!! USELESS!!! USELESS!!! USELESS!!! USELESS!!! Couldn't find a hotspot here in Saigon, Vietnam on the busiest, wifi filled tourist street in town....Bui Vien St. D1 Also, it says you have to connect to a wifi router BEFORE the software can find you any more. What a joke! If I can connect to a hotspot I wouldn't need the app. USELESS!!! USELESS!!! USELESS!!! USELESS!!!
