Keeps happening... Can't leave my Skype call going on in the background or have my phone screen off without it crashing. Been doing this since forever...
VPN connectivity is still broken. On Android it no longer connects if VPN connection is used to access the Internet. This has been going for a second year and was reported numerous times. I had to stop using Skype for Android and switch to Tango.
Two things kill this for me First, Skype now autoruns when I restart my phone and sets my status to available. This forced me to log out completely, which means it's now too much of a hassle to bother with - I just use Hangouts instead. Second, since you guys don't provide release notes with updates, I'll never know if you've fixed this. Oh, well...
Improved Skype for Android used to be very problematic. It has improved a lot lately, although it remains buggy, slow and less user friendly than the PC version.
Great App App itself is pretty great, can send messages to friends or group chats with ease, and can make calls to my friends and join grouo calls, only downsides is you cant call large groups yourself but I dont think theres much you can do to that and the I cant be in a call and have that in the background while I use another app on my phone as it will crash the call aftwe a while.
Getting better but not there yet... Skype now displays online status in the "recent" tab (finally!) but the app is still launching super slowly and the scrolling is definitely not smooth. Also, there is no easy way to find a contact. Takes me ages to find and call a particular contact. 4 stars, not 5.
Thanks for using Skype!
