Customer Reviews

Skype won't display the latest message in a conversation

There's a pretty big bug with Skype right now (at least on iPad Pro 12.9") where if you switch away from the app and then switch back, the conversation thread is scrolled up to older messages (thus not showing the latest messages). So every time you open the app, you have to scroll down to see the newest message (even if there wasn't a new message sent since the last time you had the app open). Very big bug. I hope they fix it, and then I'll update the review.

Staying Online

Just got a new update that says you can now answer calls from the standby/locked screen. Big deal because when you go to another app or if you are in the locked screen Skype automatically sets your Status to Away. Who is going to call you when your Status is Away? I have told Skype about this before. I don't use this program any more because of this. Poor very poor setup on Skype's part.

There is other programs that work out there

Update Issues

I love Skype, but now that i've updated to the most recent version on my iPad, it no longer works. It says it has gone through the update but is no longer deletable, nor can I even open the app. I do not recommend this update until it is fixed.
