Editors' Notes

From the new baby to the latest sales figures, Skype makes sharing our big news better. Anyone can start calling, texting and video-conferencing—or even dialing landlines—thanks to the intuitive design. With zillions of Skype users to connect to, it’s one of the most useful apps on our iPhone and Apple Watch.

It’s okay I suppose

I’ve used Skype for years but this suggestion is not only for mobile and iPad etc but for desktop too. I loved when it had the auto answer feature because if for instance a person had their hands full they could still answer a call and it was the user’s choice whether to enable so privacy isn’t an issue. I find that now the quality is poorer and it doesn’t adjust for low lighting situations as best it could. There are also long distance issues to be honest I am in a long distance relationship and calls don’t always have to be crap quality, Facebook video call works amazing for it but I do prefer Skype for the longer overnight calls, would just prefer better quality video to be honest and it tends to disconnect a lot on long distance calls which is frustrating on so many levels. Please fix the quality first and foremost and then maybe one day you’ll reintroduce the auto answer and please don’t forget to look into the disconnecting issue. Thank you so much.

The first review I ever wrote was on Skype and would have scored it -0 if the option had been available. Since then, I have barely touched Skype having switched to WhatsApp like so many other ex-Skype users.
I started using Skype when it first came out on 2002(?) and it was the best VOIP system around by far and the easiest to use.
Since the current crop of developers got to work they have turned a much loved and much used tool into an unmitigated disaster that barely functions and is nightmare to use.
The developers won’t listen as is evidenced by all the negative comments the new Skype is getting and won’t make any effort to either rollback the awful upgrades or return to the original Skype’s simplicity or functionality. Which is what the vast majority of (ex) users appear to want.
As a consequence Skype will continue to haemorrhage users, will fail to attract sufficient new users and will eventually be consigned to the scrap heap. Such a shame which could be avoided if the egos involved in Skype’s development left well alone and listened to those who have most used the program in the past.
