Getting better, there is hope Few bugs I've noticed: Taking video messages crashes the app two times out of three and I don't always get a notification when receiving a message.
Laggy. Battery draining. New update and I'm still having issued. Considering my only contact with certain friends is through skype, it'd be nice if this is fixed soon. :') Lags my keyboard and the autocorrect is so much worse than usual. Also drains my battery quickly.
Necessary evil? Worst piece of software that I'm forced to use. Other crappy software you can choose to stop using it. Not much choice when Skype is the only video chat app installed on my parents' iPad. Well, thanks to Skype I had to buy an iPad as well so we can FaceTime instead. Who knew Skype will increase sales of iPads because it sucks so much.
Never gets status update right. App starts using battery and data as soon as you installed it. Even when you haven't logged in yet. No status updates, so I'm always online (away) even when I'm offline. More updates than improvements (they think emoticons are updates). I just have no good words for this app and is developers (Microsoft)
I signed in Skype on the first time ,as we know nothing gets better without passing on bad experiences and poor results. But I am giving 5 Stars because with Skype all the time working for improvements. Still always work to have be done for best so big encouragement and good luck as Skype user.thanks
Login Bug Unable to successfully login into my Skype account, the app constantly reverts me back to the login screen even when I have input the correct username and password. This bug has been present on all the previous and current version which renders me unable to use this app to communicate with my friends, family and co-workers overseas. This login bug needs to be patched as soon as possible.
