Customer Reviews

Lots of problems 🤦🏼‍♀️

Well, skype is a good way to text, but the calls can be really sketchy sometimes. Even the texting has some issues. When you text, a lot of times after the update (A few weeks after an update, maybe a few months) notifications don't work even if they're on🤔. And the messaging can be slow, so messages come late and it gets suuuuuper confusing ☹️. Now, calls really need some work. The graphics get pixelated, and the sound gets spotty a lot. And, when you're in another app and you receive a call, you should be able to decline without telling the other person that you declined just in case you don't want to speak to that person. So much needs to be improved, but it has super great potential.

Skype - Continues to Improve!

In the past, I was never impressed by Skype because of a number of problems — so I did not use it much. But over the past half year, I now use it all the time. The app for i-Pad continues to improve dramatically! I now multiple times each week have long conversations with foreign friends (for the purpose of learning languages) — and find in general this Skype app on I-Pad to be superb. We often text as we speak — and most of the time the app is flawless. THANK YOU for the great improvements that you continue to make.

Sneaky way to get good reviews

Sneaky Skype. After each call, they ask how the quality was. If you say anything other than perfect, they ask what was wrong. If you say perfect, they send you to the review page. The sound usually is pretty good. The problem is that the interface is still so clunky, even after all these years and updates. Why do we need a history file AND a recent file? How come some recent calls don't show up in recent but do show up in history? Why can't the iPad version read phone numbers from my contact file yet? Great app for making phone calls but clunky interface.
