Poor Performance

This app used to be so awesome until the last several updates, which seem to be more of downgrades. Before, I could send AND receive pictures on my phone no matter what version of skype people on my contact list were using, but not anymore...the app keeps crushing in the middle of a conversation, the messages disappear randomly, not to mention the awful lag.
Group chatting: this is a whole separate topic. It used to allow making voice calls no matter how many people were in the room which was awesome but now there's a limit of 8...everytime I use a different app without logging off skype and come back to skype I have to either wait for at least 5 minutes for the conversation to load or log off and back on..sometimes I see only my messages even though there has been a long conversation involving other people too...
I have a feeling that the people who work on the updates in fact think how else they can mess it up..Instead of adding features like typing in Italics/Bold I think the Skype Team should focus more on performance issues. Seriously, this is very frustrating!!! I hope this gets fixed ASAP.

This app is extremely frustrating!

What is up with this?! Skype doesn't seem to really care for updating. It seems that ALL of my friends are offline at once and this is unusual and goes on for weeks at a time. I'm using an iPhone and my software is completely updated. Skype does not notify me when I have a message, either. The only time I know when someone has messaged or called me is when I unlock my phone and see the number of messages at the corner of the app icon. Skype does not make any kind of noise to notify me or show up on my front screen when my phone is locked. Often, I end up missing people. Skype just has horrible quality right now. It used to be so much better than this. The people in my contacts' photos are not showing up, either. It'll take days to load up, even if they're offline. Something seriously needs to be fixed, and soon! 👎

Learn how to do your freaking job

I don't know what in god's name you people have done but since you last updated skype it's useless it crashes all the freaking time it's slow I can't send pics or video anymore is slower then ever sometimes when I try to send a message my keyboard doesn't show up or the call icons. Plus this is a new thing that is really making me mad almost every single time I use the app it says unable to sign in then it asks me to restart my phone I have restarted it 7 freaking time in a row. When I close the app and open it again with out restarting my phone it lets me use it fix this issue and the notifications right now this app isn't worth a quarter of one cent. Whoever is responsible for this mess better step up there game and fix everything. And if not fire the person responsible for this and get someone who will do there job correctly.
