Review from A Google User
Problems Dont really see the advantage in the new UI. 2 things I'd like you to change: 1. Orientation, cant go portrait mode on my asus eee pad. 2. Live sync issues, i only get notified about new messages when i go into the app, not by the notification bar, which is annoying
Skype.... Can't wait to delete you. RUBBISH since the "teenage cool" update. ANY OTHER platform is better and now business is migrating anyway. I now use WhatsApp because the call quality works instead of looking at squiggly colours and a distorted and dropping call.
I am so disappointed. Because this new version is super slow..... please get back the old version
New update is not good ...to much trouble
Over the last few updates lots of issues have been resolved and Skype is now running super smooth. The user interface took some time to get used too but it's pretty flash and easy and provides a good user experience. Uploading photos still has a minor flaw, it takes a long time to see the thumbnail of your pictures before you can pick the one you want to upload. But overall very happy with the latest Skype.
They keep going backwards with this app. Performance sucks on the S7, they are increasing bloat like the damn Cortana assistant you can't remove or block, it automatically fills messages with call me later in stead of letting you begin calling right away. I wish there were a viable video alternative... Alas there isn't. Otherwise, telegram or Whatsapp works much better for audio alone.
Love Skype just wish it would stop logging me out and deleting my entire contact list 2 times a week. Every time I log in I never know which old set of convo histories will come back. It's like I have 3 accounts all under the same sign in name
