Customer Reviews

Great Update!!

I really appreciate this latest update for Skype on iPad. It's been needed for some time now, I had actually resorted using Skype for iPhone on my iPad because the experience was not good at all on the previous version. There's just one thing with this update that has created some pretty apparent issues for me. I receive many contact requests every day (10-20) and all of these contacts are just built up at the top of my recent messages, with no way for me to quickly hide, or remove them. I think this is a big issue for many people that receive contacts in bulk. Other than this, I have no complaints!

Nice work

Finally! 😍

The update is here! I love the new layout, never crashes and is easy to call my friends! I have not had any problems so I'm excited to use Skype again. Thank you and I request getting this app.😀

New look is worse

I preferred how it was before this update by far. It made it easy to concentrate on one conversation at a time, and I could pull up the sidebar when I wanted it. Now it's in the way no matter what, and there's nothing I can do. Please at least add a feature where I can skip the sidebar away!
