Online contacts list great for communication

Having a contacts list filtered by who is online is a great way to manage communication with a group of people spread over the world. I don't need to worry about timezones - I can simply see who is online and hence available.
Only complaints I have is that people marking themselves as 'away' are still considered 'online', and that the 'online' filter isn't the default option.
I hope the developers don't remove the online contacts like they have from the iPhone app.

Nice app

Skype is a good messaging app. It's the only way I can keep in touch with people I know. However, the reason I'm not giving this five stars is of some annoying features.
First of all, when you video call, it's laggy and the the video quality is HORRIBLE.
Secondly, sometimes I'm chatting to my friends when they are away, and it says they're online when they aren't.
Finally, I can't change my Skype name anymore, but that may be my own problem.
Overall, it's a good app and I recommend it.

Overall good but..

The app overall is great but I really want to be able to edit the “About me” section because the one that I wrote was ages ago and I want to change it, so please enable it again. The name part when you go to the “My info” part could you please also enable the name part again like it was before so I can change my nickname/name?. Last thing is please let people be able to download files. Once again this app is great but please fix those minor problems, thank you.
