What can I do with Skype?

• Communicate easily with the people in your life through free Skype-to-Skype video/audio calls, personalised messaging and low-rate calling to mobiles and landlines around the world.

I am a pensioner and love the Skype app. I am looking after my daughters children while she is overseas and it is the most important thing I can use to keep in contact. Most times it is really good there are odd days it cuts out but a wonderful help to me
I sent this review some time ago but I feel exactly the same way. My daughter works in Afghanistan and it is just wonderful to be in constant contact with her while I am looking after her two sons. I am 84 so as you can imagine it really helps me. I can remember when she worked in Japan in the nineties and we had to work out when to make a phone call and had to keep it short because it cost a lot of money then. Thank you Skype

Some problems, some times . . . . . . .

Most times a brilliant connection and accasionally a break in the link but most times all good.
What l cant fathom is why my contacts are most times shown off line when they say they are not. One of my friends tells me that my connection says l am away while l am online video talking to them. I have to guess and call blindly and hope they are there.
Beyond all that it is brilliant to see and talk to folk using Skype.
Would not be without it now, so many thanks to all at Skype.
