As a single father this is a wonderful app!! This gives my son the opportunity to talk to his mother face-to-face over a phone because sometimes we just can't get there to see her all the time due to life happens. So it allows my son ti see his mommy via Skype! So for that.....they get 5 stars!! Only complaint is the apps alert sound is very quiet and there are times you can't even hear it and you won't see that the other person texted 2 hours ago. Only complaint. So make the alert sound a lot louder and this would be a perfect app!!
The new version is a bulshit. I use Skype every day I also spent around $40/month to call international mobile number. This version can't brows number from mobile. I have to copy or memories the number than dial. Which is Totally crazy. Old version was amazing. I had no issue with old application. Can I get my old one back. Otherwise I will use different applications to call international mobile number. Skype is great, But not this stuff up version of application Cheers,
The new update is extremely bad!!!! I cannot use other apps while still seeing and talking to the other person on Skype which is the biggest drawback.. please fix it.. other things like the hand up button being on the right side does not help either since everyone is used to the buttons being in the middle.. also the name and connecting and ringing sign going to the left was not really necessary.. please solve the problem soon..
Microsoft must have done some work on the app its gotten a lot better in terms of videocalling and conference calling. I dont really use it for day to day communication ie instant messaging and stuff but I have just had a group call and I honestly did not expect such a good quality call. Thanks a lot and keep it up!
I am all for progress. But the new Skype UI is rubbish. It is confusing and has too much "fluff". It is a step backwards. I long for the cleaner UI version we once had where user experience was matter of factly and to the point. This is a typical example of an elephant sized corporation putting unchecked morons on the loose on the Skype project. Guys at Microsoft, your approach to Skype will become a case study on corporate product development failure in future MBA classes. Sad!
There was no reason to bloat the app this badly. It takes upwards of a whole minute to recall a chat when you are talking to more than 1 person. To make matters worse the color options are all way too painful on the eyes and even though you are supposed to be able to make video calls the app never connects properly and your friends end up with a side show instead. This whole update is a failure and should never have been issued.
