What's New in Version 6.35.1
Welcome to Skype for iPhone.
We're constantly working to make Skype better for you.
In this release, we've included a number of general improvements and feature updates to make Skype better for you.
Please continue to send us feedback, we're listening!
There are no negatives here. (updated)
Just use it. You will love it. Does not cost you anything. I pay for every additional service offered and use them. All other alternatives are a bomb. Been using Skype from day one before they had any in app purchases. Microsoft has improved the service. Use Skype WiFi at the airport too. Get my calls no matter what hand phone or what country. Trust me. I used to get ripped off all the time with international calling cards. Oh yeah, Virginia, nothing in life is perfect but Skype is better than all the best.
26Feb2017 Same only better. Great for international callers that like to talk for ever. Conventional providers just can not give a service like it at any price. I have been playing these international calling games for 20 years.
18Jun2017 I do not work for Microsoft. On this product give credit where due. No fake review here. I am well connected if you want to discuss it further. My calls to the other side of the world are loud and clear.
Wants me to update, no update available/ no issue with app crashing
Some people have been talking about the fake 5 star reviews, I am reading their comments and everyone is having problems with the app crashing or dropped calls. I don't use the call feature, my friend and I are in different time zones and find it easier to send the 3-minute clips to watch on our own time. I came looking for the reviews because I got a message in-app saying I needed to update my version of Skype on my iPhone. I came here and there is no update available? Is it the update that is messing with everyone's phone and I just don't have it? It tells me there is no update available, so I would think I am already up-to-date.
Frankly, the high reviews are not all paid, I love this app! I also have not been having any of the issues listed. My only issue is it wants me to update and I have no way to update my app.
I received a message saying
"From July 1, you may no longer be able to sign into the version of Skype on your iPhone. Update now for better call quality and messaging."
I click on the "update now" and all it does is take me to the Apple Store as if I want to download the app. Why is this? Is it up to date? It doesn't do an update so am I already up to date? I also deleted the app and re-download it thinking if I did it this way it would do the update. I really hope I don't lose Skype for my phone. It's so much easier than having to use it on my laptop or tablet. I like the app and although I don't use the cam/call features it's great for messaging. Has anyone else got this message and if so does your Skype update or does it do the same as mine. Please help and fix the issues.
