Customer Reviews

ring my phone and you get 5 stars

I use Skype to have a stable phone number when overseas, and it works pretty well. There is only one problem with this app: incoming calls don't make my phone ring or vibrate on any setting (i.e. silent or otherwise). I've checked recent support forum discussions and this seems to be a common issue with the app, not a quirk of my use. As a result I have to constantly stare at my screen and be ready with lightning-quick reflexes if I'm going to actually answer a call before it goes to voicemail. This is silly. The user interface when calls do come in is also silly and confusing (CANCEL or OPTIONS, no button for "answer" - and then in another mode, which is a little better, you're still left scratching your beard when presented with four options that include both ANSWER and OPEN. What is the logic here?). But you can get used to the weird options. You can't get used to answering phone calls when the phone does not tell you a call is happening in the first place.

I know, this reads like a two-star review, but Skype gets four stars because these are the only problems! Works well with lower bandwidth, has the best audio quality out there. Just fix the ringing and answering mechanic, please!

Notifications and function

Notifications are delayed up to hours late when friends send me messages. Sometimes I feel as if I don't receive notifications at all. This is an annoying issue, as I don't like to continually check the Skype app when I'm in conversation(s) with someone. Also, sometimes my friends send me long texts. Because the font is so big on Skype, I can't see all the text, so I scroll up to have it in my screen while I respond but for some reason, unlike any other messaging app I've had, Skype "privileges" you and scrolls all the way back down to the last message sent when you tap the respond box. I don't understand why it has to do this for me, sometimes manual is a good thing. Lastly, despite having good connections, I'm sure you're all familiar with Skype's infamous dropped calls / constant freezing. It hasn't changed. We've stuck to FaceTime in the end. If only all my friends weren't on Skype, I would have made the switch to ooVoo long ago.

Great app Great Features

You can almost do everything from this app. I have the skype credit feature where you can make calls to the USA free and it works amazing as I have been able to attend meetings and keep in touch with most of my friends. The clarity is good and the connection is great for a speed that I cannot do a whatsapp call for. I just wished they could give India calling free or calling credit for India numbers just like they have for the United States. Would have made my travel plans lot easier each time I visit my family. Overall a great app and a must have if you have a decent internet connectivity from your hand held device.
