Practically flawless, but two fatal flaws have to be fixed quickly....

I love Skype, it's nearly flawless, but there's two flaws that need to be fixed ASAP.... One, when you go to check your messages and the message sent to you doesn't load or show for 20 minutes if not more, and when you send a message and the screen freezes, and it won't let you send messages..... Please, fix these.... They're extremely annoying and really hinder the quality of the App....

Want to read your messages? Well you can't.

Love Skype but sometimes it won't load the messages I get or it'll take forever to load. Then it will delete messages and if I didn't read them, then I won't get to-which is very inconvenient! Still recommend it, but they need to fix this problem. Also I'll see the messages in my notifications but they won't show up on Skype which means I won't be able to read the full message.

Skype Update a Failure,

I opened my iPad Air this morning to be greeted with a very dark Skype icon. I tried clicking it and below the icon the word changed to "waiting...". It stayed that way all day. It occurred to me to check the App Store to see if it showed anything relevant. It was still showing the need for an update although the update itself showed "open" although there is an obvious problem! People, you need to do something about this ASAP! Supposedly it is compatible with iPads, but it surely is not compatible with the iPad Air; judging all that I have read from other contributors here, I would say you have real problems and a lot of upset people!
