Customer Reviews


It's alright, but still needs to be improved. The messages arrive incredibly slowly. A contact sends me a message and I receive it thirty minutes later. I send a message, and it says "pending" for thirty minutes. It's quite frustrating when the message is urgent enough for the person to repeat the message several times.
Also, it glitches often and I have to restart Skype whenever it does.
I know this is the app, but I just wanted to comment on how Skype on the desktop does not seem to be updating the messages. I am SURE that there should be new messages, but Skype only shows the messages from months ago. My contacts say they have sent me several new messages yet Skype says that I have NO new messages AT ALL.
That should be fixed as well. I've tried several things to try and fix it on my own, but none appear to work.


The only way I can talk to my friends is on Skype for iPod, because my computer broke. Sure it's not the best, but its better than nothing. I have friends who live in different states, and this makes communicating with them really easy. I like screen sharing because I can see them playing video games (It's a thing we do) and they can see me doing the same.


I love this app it works greatly but i hate how when i open my skype on my computer the messages i have already read still apear as unread please fix this.
I also noticed someone sY the iphone/ipad keeps buzzing with every new messGe since the sync update well there should be a setting for that in settings >.>
