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,
I would rate it higher but honestly it was better before Microsoft bought it. I had even used it as my phone (with a number) for a time. Just little things here and there have changed and it's not as fun to use anymore. Still, I cannot imagine not using Skype at all. It is a very convenient program and I love the video calling, I just wish that was better quality. Seems when you use the video feature suddenly nothing works as well so I end up using it mostly for text and voice calls.
After last updates I've started to hear my opponents very bad. Like metal voice throw speakerphone. With any other applications that can able to make video calls I do not have such problem. Of course I should notify that new UI is awful.
Updated 1/18/18 - performance of the app is still TERRIBLE, it's incredibly slow making messaging painful. What's worse now, is you can't use Skype android over Bluetooth, making it completely useless for most calls as well. Skype is only good on pc. If you rely on Skype like I do, you're going to be frustrated by this version, it's practically unusable. If you're new to Skype, stick with the PC version.
This app is retarded I used it last night for the first time in over 5 years well I went to sighn in today it wouldn't work. Wanted me to go to a Microsoft page I did that. And they said my account has been suspended. And don't have a clue why I haven't sent or done anything out of the ordinary.. this app deserves 0 stars
