  • Decent app

    Works perfectly for me. I’m doing all my calls overseas with a subscription and I’m very happy. Also works okay with LTE cell network. Overall I very pleased with Skype
  • Continual crashes when trying to send photos.

    By Yelderik
    Used to be a great app but now unless you are on the latest and greatest phone it is sluggish and crashes continuously when trying to send a photo. Even after factory reset on iPhone 6+. As of October 15 it still does this even with no other apps running and with clean iOS install. No other photo or video app does this.
  • Most Excellent!

    By RosieKitty1969
    I really love the mobile version of this app. I’ve used it a lot on my laptop, but I never thought that it would be as good on my iPhone, but it is. The best part is that it’s accessible for those of us who use VoiceOver.
  • Useless design

    By Funky sexy
    Its design has become super confusing. My mother can’t use at all. And now, doesn’t even work properly on iPhone X. It crushes within the first three second I open it (the most updated version I’ve downloaded as of today) Also, if you haven’t used your credits for a while (180 days) they inactivate it. So your money goes away. The email I just received says I can reactivate my credit again via my account, but not sure if it’s a really easy way to keep me safe. They can just remind that I have credits, instead. But the design, again. It almost feels somebody purposefully made it as hard as possible to use. It’s a very wrong strategy. People don’t use Skype like Snapchat buddy. Skype is supposed to be easy so anyone can use it across the world. We also pay for it. Ridiculous.
  • Difficult to use

    Skype was fabulous until microsoft purchased the app. Now if i haven’t used the app recently, i have to get a code by email to identify myself. I’m not trying to cheat microsoft for 2 cents per minutes !!!!

  • Horrible

    By Bugglsy
    I haven’t had 1 good video chat using skype since I downloaded. Horrible quality you can barely see the person your Skyping, and then they always freeze or the camera is picking up things late. This is not a good app, do not download. Unless u have no other options cause it’s a headache.
  • Apple step up your game.

    By BefuddledYoungMale
    Skype has better features than FaceTime with a seamless messaging, audio-video chat system. Apple isn’t setting the curve in many genres anymore non social media communications being one of them. Up your game Apple across all platforms. -Former Fanboy
  • New version has too many bells and whistles

    By realtor in virginia not ohio
    A lot elderly use this tool to communicate with family. Too many unnecessary features were added to this version. This confuses them. For example there is a heart. Why? This is not Facebook. The little rectangle that shows the user used to be draggable before. That was great because sometimes an image is covered by that. It should easily open and show contacts. It should be as simple to use as an old fashioned phone. It shouldn’t ask a lot of questions. The elderly panic and don’t use it. Especially the non English versions have incomprehensible message boxes. Please refrain from too many enhancements. Previous Skype was fine. The focus of enhancements should be for steady connections, sound and image. Please roll back if possible.
