Customer Reviews

Don't upgrade !!! ZERO Stars

Text message characters are Invisible from time to time, on the receiving end. NO ring sound when calling someone! Only Silence if it until someone answers!! Video calls may not have video from time to time.

ANOTHER TOTAL FAIL for Microsoft!! SKYPE App makes Microsoft look Bad!! SKYPE app: Microsoft does it again!! Destroyed a good piece if programming. User Interface puts Microsoft to shame. The new version is a TOTAL Disaster. Please give us the older version back!!!!
If a user is wise and plans for such future app upgrade Problems... You can Restore your Skype to a much older version, which you should have backed up in iTunes. Or just use Googletalk FaceTime, Line, Viber or Wickr.


fast connection, good voice call, decent video call, (best is still ios proprietary), improved edit pic before send.
-like whatsapp viber imessage enable short voice messages reasons: avoid typing ie while walking(which is becoming dangerous), enable quicker conversation, enable express higher volume of content in less time, will reduce data transfer against video messages.
-smaller/more compact messages so more can b seen in one page.
Thing to improve for excellence:
-access to other app's sand box enabling to send pdf zip gif avi, etc etc, best sand box to access would b "File Browser"'s one.
Also, found killing my 4S battery within 2 after update 8.3.

SMS feature

Everything else is fine just need SMS feature then all sorted as I've got skype credit
