Customer Reviews

This app has gone to hell

Skype has lost all hope and practicality. It eats messages sent between a friend (on an iPad) and I (also on an iPad) and says I am offline almost all the time, and especially when I am using another app at the same time. The app crashes habitually and I am never notified of incoming messages. The one thing I genuinely expect this app to do, it does not accomplish. It has loss all use to me, and the only reason I have not deleted it yet is because it has so much important data in chat logs that it would harm my productivity to do so.
Please endeavor to mend the problems with this app so two people on iPads may message each other. Please make the app stop crashing. Please make the app function as it should.
A way to refresh the log to receive messages that have been waiting for me to come "online" would honestly solve a third of these problems.
Until then, Skype can proudly take note that it has lost an IOS customer.

Just as good -sometimes better- than pc

I love skype on my iPad and my mini iPad... My iPhone i only have 1 complaint & that's i can't get push notifications but on both iPads it works ace. Never crashes, I can multi task, good quality, can send/receive files or video mail... I love it, don't know why ppl giving it less that 4-5 stars? Great app.

Facebook login

I originally made an account and had a password, but then if ound that I could login through Facebook so I didn't use my password anymore, and thought I could always use my Facebook, I was wrong. I forgot my password and couldn't reset it (to the skype account) they just gave me the prompt to reset my Facebook password which I still know up to this date, I even contacted customer support but they gave me the same answer. Please add a login from Facebook, Thank you.
