Not sure what the other reviews are going on about...
I have used this on my iPhone 4 (not 4s) for over 3 years now. My only problem has been it'll randomly drop from time to time. Whether that'll be from the connection getting bad and the Skype can't handle it I'm not sure. However stopping using so much bandwidth does help. But every now and then it'll drop for no reason and does get infuriating. Other then that I can still send pictures, videos, I recieve notifications when I get messages, I get pop ups when I have a call coming through. (Not sure about conference calling as I don't have the need) but overall pretty good.
This is one brilliant app, always works except from the occasional time the phone needs restarting, over all it's a great app, but I would appreciate something being added to it, on the computer version of Skype you can turn down the volume of the app, which you can't on the phone app, and I think it would be great if you could change the volume of the app so you can do other things if needed while still skyping people.
Hello Skype, thanks for for fixing the notification issues. Now I am getting notifications from a blocked sender. The messages do not appear in the main app. Also, still getting an issue where I get a message from someone's linked account and the app takes me from the notification to the contact's other account instead. Otherwise this is the best version of the app since Microsoft took over.
