Amazing alternative to computer

This is amazing you can video chat to androids to iPads amazing great alternative to FaceTime and your friends have iPads I recommend this over a computer because the ipad doesn't need any headphones or microphone. I have 1 small problem can you make notifications for messages another problem is that it picks up a lot of background noise but that's okay. When ever me and my friends are talking (yes I have friend) we always have these problems: echo weird static noise and not being able to hear my friends. Skype if you see this review please fix these problems and it will make it a five star app.


I like it, but maybe consider this...

I really enjoy using Skype because it lets me keep in touch with my friends, but it's really annoying to have to scroll up constantly to see previous conversations. For example, sometimes I send my friends pictures that I may need later on, but then when I need them I can't find them. Maybe you could add a feature to see all pictures you have sent to a person, or all pictures you received, or maybe add the feature on the computer version that allows you to skip to a certain date? I think that would be useful. Thank you!

Best sound for international calls

I've been using Skype for years, to make phone calls as well as regular Skyping, and it delivers great quality (at a reasonable price, for phone calls). This review is for Skype for iPad, which is how I usually use it if possible for phone calls, since the microphone seems to work well for those on the other end of the line. The iPhone app is essentially just as good. When I'm traveling, Skype is the way I make local calls to restaurants and other local destinations.
