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!!
I've been using this app for a while now and overall enjoyed my experience but with the new update 2 of my favorite and also convenient features seem to have been removed I no longer have the option to text while in video and it no longer brings up a pop up video block when I am not in the skype app it's self. Please fix this if it is an error and if not than please bring it back.
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 UI needs totally remodification. It looks bad. The way you show call history in a chat window is totally disgusting. Look to whatsapp for inspiration. How simple their UI is. Your app's settings takes years to load. How funny. No wonder you are not in top 10 free apps in play store. Even you are not inside 100. Very frustrating. U call this UI redesigned! I am uninstalling it at this moment. Going to whatsapp. Hate u Skype
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..
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.
