Its accessing Precise-GPS location !! Device's internet IP-adrs auto-discloses IP-network location to external servers & suffice to provide services to phone software, so NO need to access GPS-Loc or Net-Loc services directly from phone itself. its accessing ALL LOGs+History, All WebSite/URL visited List, Running app List, etc !!! are massive Violation of Privacy-Rights. Even Law-Enforcement needs Court-Order for such History/Log/Private Data ! App's Dev should release separate Skype-Precise-Location Plugin app, then users who need to share their location can load+use that. When app dev/ops/grp wil Respect Privacy-Rights & apply it, then we wil update this review. Thanks.
Does Skype not run in the background anymore? I dont see the icon in the notification bar, the app running in the background when minimised, or getting notifications when Skype in minimised or not active on the screen. What is the point having an IM software that behaves this way? It's not "instant" anymore.
Notifications stopped when it updated. I can't get it to notify me on new messages. Also, it always shows me as "invisible", no matter how many times I set it to "available". Sometimes it'll work, sometimes it won't. Missing messages still a problem--there are serious problems on message synchronization.
Me and my boyfriend try to call eachother and it won't even show up on our screens. It just shows up as a missed call. I uninstalled it as reinstalled it but it's still doing the same thing.
This seems to be happening to everyone else, and it's happened to me as well...not a real problem for me but it needs to be fixed, for everyone else's sake. The screen keeps going black for a split second every once in a while and comes back on. This happens everytume I'm in a call...fix this please and I'll be a very happy caller c:
The skype app is absolute trash. My camera wont work when other people call me, it will be on and i can see myself but they cant see me. And i cant get past the "Connecting" screen i try to call others.
What's new in this version?
