Review from Laszlo Vertes
Latzy On Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 (OS Andr. 4.04): screen doesn't rotate (with previous version did), can't put on speakers (earlier could), anyhow - became clumsy. On HTC One X (same OS) works perfectly
Security Risk! Needs to read your contacts, sms... Crashes if it can't do it. Can't send feedback because of crash. Crashes every time going foreground. Crashes when going back from chat to contact list. Crashes on screen rotation. Crashing brings up another app, and this app has closing animation. Still valid after a long time. Would like to finally change it...
TOO MANY DANGEROUS PERMISSIONS REQUIRED, AND AFTER ANY UPDATE IT ALWAYS RECLAIMS ITS AUTOSTART PERMISSION!! Also, font size way too small, app too heavy for older phones and DiamondCard.us is cheaper for intl calls, so I just use Zoiper caller and recharge my diamondcard. take care, M$.
Overtaken by the competition Skype had the potential to be the Messenger, WhatsApp and Tribe of today. Now it is totally reliant upon the first mover advantage it had. But I'm slowly getting more calls on the competitors apps than Skype and eventually it'll be gone. Skype has a huge mess of a UX and legacy technical solution. It's "always on feature" is outdated and it's inability to be a proper chat/messenger app and VOIP solution is its biggest issue. I'll miss Skype once it's gone, but of you don't innovate, you die.
Love the app but... The app works great when it does work. I just got the new Galaxy S7 Edge so we will see if the issues I was experiencing on the Motorola Droid Turbo. So hopefully the call dropped comma and the no sound issue will stop.
Can't get past login STILL Total and utter failure. Have reinstalled 3 (now 12?) times. Correct password entry returns to same exact screen. Would be nice to be able to call my family again. (US expat) Skype owes me an explanation. The forums are useless not to mention childish.
Don't know if it even works Used to be fine, but changed phones and now it won't let me log in with my existing account. It logs me in with another account, but none of my contacts or conversations are there. Not much use as I do not want or need 2 accounts
What's new in this version?
• Ongoing improvements in call establishment rates, when the app is on the receiving end
