    I could not live without Skype. It works very well 99% of the time.
  • Arm twisting to invite contacts to skype

    By maximo69 6.9
    Quality of calls is generally good, although sometimes signal drops off . One thing that annoys me is that MS makes it difficult to add a new number as a contact. The app requires that you « invite « your new contact to Skype prior to being able to add them. I hate that!
  • Performance Issue

    By NAG16
    A great app, typically works perfectly, but one particular issue has occurred over the past year I’ve been using this app. I’ve noticed that if I switch apps or check my notifications or control screen (on Apple phone), switching screens causes my camera to shut down and not allow it to come back on, even after returning to the app, making for a very annoying and literally one sided experience. Please fix this. Also not that even after pressing the button to turn my camera back on, the app somehow turns off my camera again within the next 40 seconds.
  • Not connecting now

    After latest update I can not connect to skype, on LTE when I try to sign it it says there is no network connection and that’s it...worked ok before
  • A reliable, proficient, and enjoyable app

    By Ciggy732
    Skype is an excellent app for work and keeping connected with friends. I’ve found it helpful for five years. The updates are great. The call quality is also very good. I have tried other apps but this one has always been the best for my needs. Thank you Skype!
  • Be vigilant about overcharging!!!

    By lz2006
    From time to time Skype deactivating one’s credit for inaction. (Why? I paid for it!) When it happened to me and I started using it again, it gave a ambiguous message that my credit had reactivated but actually it charged me a new amount (that is probably why). The default action should be reactivating existing credit instead of charging more! Will stop using this after my current credit run out.
  • Why I like Skype

    By Why I like Skype
    I like Skype because you can have the people you are talking to see what you are doing and what you are playing. Sincerely, William
  • glitchy

    By hffgjjuttevnklwwwc
    won’t ever notify me when someone texts me. other than that it’s ok... calls are weird and quiet sometimes. but the most annoying part is the not getting notifications, have tried to reinstall and all that but it does nothing.
  • You can’t spell horrible without Microsoft

    By JetSki5000
    this app frequently ignores the iOS volume level and blasts you with full volume and won’t let you control the volume. Also it crashes and glitches randomly. It’s what I’ve come to expect from Microsoft: buy great companies and ruin them for the users everywhere.
  • Best calling app
