Calls drop!!

I know calls have to drop sometime, because obviously you wont let us be on calls for 3-4 days without stop, although that would be great, but now calls drop constantly, and well I'm not going to lie about it, but I sleep with my girlfriend on Skype at nights! And when the call falls in the middle of the night it pisses me off because I don't get to see her much! In the past versions, we used to be able to stay on the call all night and even 2-3 days without stopping, and that was great!!!!!!!!! I loved how calls wouldn't fall so much! I'm asking if you could please fix the calls crashing problem, and well if possible, let us be on a call lets say as an example 4 days or more without stop!! Give us better connections (because the wifi connections are great so it's a skype problem) or just help us out fixing the crashing problem when the wifi is great! I need it sometimes for work too and it doesn't help at all, and I support skype because I've been using it ever since it came out, but now it's beginning to get worse even tho some issues and others were fixed and added.

New update killed the fun

Skype was fun and easy to use . I used it for video chatting and sending pics to friends an family in different states. To keep in touch sharing memories and have fun. That fun is now gonna as well as the simplicity of Skype. I got a notification to update Skype it stated the bugs it would fix . It didn't mention the change in sending receiving files . Now when I send a photo or receive a photo from loved ones I get a message saying "this version of Skype doesn't support receiving photos." I look up in the Skype support and it mentions this there but no mention if it before updating . It states some info about the cloud and pic being there for viewing. Hence the issue I'm not sure what the cloud is it doesn't sound like its simple to use . I've heard Of it again clueless to it and I'm a youngster 23 . My mother and I have been greatly affected by this. We can no longer easily share and send pics . And even if I figure the cloud and how to get the pics I'm sent, my poor mother will still be lost :( Skype please fix this give us back the simplicity and please give me back my special time moments with my mom. All I want is to see the pics and stuff she sends.
disappointed and gravely saddened

You're getting there, but not quite.

Ok, you've brought back profiles. That's good. You get another star back. Now the rest of the problems.

-Sending pictures. Still a big problem and not useful if you can't save it to those on the phone to a phone so no point of sending files. Unless you're on the computer which you have to log into your Skype account which takes a lot longer, and you have to save it yourself with your mouse. No one likes this which makes the feature itself useless for the app.

-Unnecessary bold letters when you use "*" and can't put "_" if you put it on both sides of the sentence. It's honestly frustrating. I don't know about you, but "*" is commonly used for RPing (Role Playing) and it's honestly annoying that it bolds it.

-People have to hold for 3 or 5 seconds to notice you can edit/delete/copy/paste because some people haven't noticed it yet. You might want to fix that and put an automatic pop up like it used to before the 5.0 so people don't think you removed it.

Everything else is fine. Those are the main details the Skype group needs to fix now and then the app will be loved again. I love Skype, but I wish I never updated to 5.0 (I had it on auto update but not anymore.) to see the huge drawback the Skype group has done. Everyone wants the features that made Skype special than a fancy detailed format. I hope you continue to listen to your costumers and take in this feedback.
