garym42's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/6/18 12:42 PM
Skype had a perfectly usable UI. Why did they find it necessary to change everything around? Update: The more I use the new interface, the more I hate it. When I search, it can't find people in my contacts list, yet it suggests total strangers who live literally on the other side of the world. It's completely insane.
AnkitBalak's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/5/18 8:23 PM
Make sure your VPN is off otherwise the calls drop. Overall is a good way to communicate specially if you are overseas.

Great quality communication. Crystal clear. No interference. Secure and reliable. I have been using it for over 10 years. Also great for conference (group) calls. Keep up the good work.
SFO21's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/30/18 3:45 PM
THIS WAS ALWYS A GREAT APP UNTIL THIS VERSION. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. you will regret it!! this version is terrible. UI is confusing to the point of uselessness. BRING BACK CLASSIC SKYPE! this is now just another crappy kiddie sticker social media app. BE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE DOWNLOADING SO YOU CAN RESTORE FROM BACKUP TO GET THE OLD VERSION BACK.

First of all, I love Skype. I use it for communication and entertainment, but recently my bots stopped working, specifically the bing music preview. Anyway, great app, would totally recommend.
RJ Turing's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/3/18 6:27 PM
Glad to see that Microsoft removed highlights. I use many communication services besides Skype, such as WhatsApp, iMessage, and FaceTime. These services all have more simple, professional user-interfaces since they are designed to enrich core experiences like messaging and calls. It’s also easier to create an account and add contacts on these services than on Skype. Some suggestions: 1. Remove unnecessary features, such as the add-ins and bots. 2. End-to-end encryption should be in all conversations, not just Private conversations. 3. Be able to add users by phone number. 4. Have the user searches be more private. When I search for users, many others appear. There should be more privacy so users don’t contact you or are able to find you. I for one think it would be good if Microsoft renames Skype.

Somehow not liking the new version of app. Not able reposition the video. Please fix it and keep like before.
Todd5846's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/29/18 8:01 PM
I hate this issue the most. When two people talk at exactly the same time, it mutes the person so you can’t hear them. FaceTime doesn’t have this issue. You’ll probably have to subtract their waveform from your mic input to make sure it doesn’t come out their speakers to avoid feedback issues. Fix this and you’ll prob have 5 stars.
GreatgrandmaO's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/29/18 5:49 PM
Most days I absolutely love Skype. To be able to see and talk to my son in Bremerton is so great. To have my friends check on me and I them every few hours makes me feel safer in my home, especially at my age. To on top of these abilities, it's free. So great for a senior. Some days the connection is bad or we get a failed call and can't understand why but most of the time Skype is wonderful. Thank you so much!

Nice one Msft, Skype use to be great, now it is virtually unusable. The only thing worse is Skype Business which is a sad joke.
_m_a_x_'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/29/18 1:24 PM
(Update: also, stop begging for reviews. Kthxbye) The app has become increasingly slower with time. Call notifications sometimes don’t show up at all or start ringing with a 30 sec delay compared to a PC client. connected calls never actually transition to the call UI. Skype was fast, reliable, and not attempting to be a “social network” but now it’s trash and I can’t get my parents to move to anything else so I have to keep using it.

aspt2's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/26/18 2:54 AM
I downloaded the latest version to use on ipad but it allows no removing call histories or signing out. It won't even show me my profile without drilling down once I find the correct menu. All support questions lead me to boards about how to use Skype on a Windows platform only. HELLO!!! This is the version on the Apple store! Windows help is irrelevant. Clearly Microsoft has decided this product is not to be used by ipad users.
Bwengye's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/26/18 10:54 AM

The app in general is good but when it comes to using the app it’s a little difficult. When you start the app for the first time it’s extremely confusing on how to work everything and what to do on it. I suggest there should be directions when you first start the app do we all know how to use it.

Update? How’s a step way backwards an improvement? User interface is TERRIBLE. Cannot easily change settings. Software very buggy. Video does not work. Ring tone suddenly stops working and I must dig through mounds of community support pages to find an answer. In this day and age you should not be a software engineer to figure out a MS application. Bad job Microsoft.
A hedgehog simulator?'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/21/18 3:14 PM
So I just now saw that a update had happened 2 days ago saying that the video call thing was fixed. It’s still happening for mobile users. I get called, answer, then I’m stuck in video call without being able to turn it off. Even in a regular call I get forced into a video call and it takes me having to restart the call 1 or several times to get into call without face cam. If this is fixed I’ll give 5 stars.

When I try to click the video button it does absolutely nothing. But I can see and hear him and he can hear me but he can not see me. I would like to know what I need to do to fix it! I also have Skype on my iPhone and I have no problems with it. But I’d rather use my iPad but it will not work. It worked fine for a few weeks and lately it started acting up and it’s the most annoying thing ever.

P C Jose's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/15/18 12:47 AM
Audio call quality is best. :) But that is not the only thing for user convenience, right? #1 Contact management within app has gone from good to bad.. And now, with the recent releases of the app, it had gone from bad to worse? Bad team giving the ui feature requirements.. :( Absolutely no end user surveyed requirements.. :( #2 Who in the world designed that initial Dial Out Answer Wait music? :( whenever i dial a phone number, I get two hammer banging on my head (music???) and then a feeble remote ring tone until the remote phone user picks up.. The volume of the initial tone must be normalized with the remote ring tone. Please dont select such bad frequencies .. If you had to choose such frequency, please lower the volume, relatively.. or make it user configurable volume levels for initial wait music.. for remote ring tone, voice, etc separately. I am using ipad4 with bose headset qc35-II.. please test it out. Just this tone spoils my day :(

Egsellix's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/14/18 1:31 AM
As others have said, truly the worst update of any app I have ever seen. It took an acceptable app and made it almost impossible to modify data even if wrong. Has a help button that is very hard to find, must less a smart help. How do you add a second number to a contact? The entire man-machine interface is a farce, with no intuitiveness, or useful menus. I hate to say it, but as someone who used to design hardware and software, I would fire the entire group of people who are responsible for the man-machine interface on this latest version, and start over.

Imnotwritingagain!'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/1/18 9:11 PM
I have found the sound quality to be excellent, however I have a lot of difficulty navigating the app. Hard to find out where to add credit. Only seems to take 4.99 at a time...why? Can’t find how to repeat dialing numbers I’ve already dialed. Instead when I press the number it says invite this person to skype. I don’t want to invite them, I want to call them! Maybe I’m just too stupid to figure it out but I don’t see instructions on the app either. So to me it is not user friendly.
sbkmmi's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/1/18 6:29 PM

LiteSplasher108's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 9/1/18 4:56 AM
I have been a SKYPE user since its inception, so I have experienced a lot of very necessary changes. Now, the clarity, volume, and voice quality are GREAT ! I use the text minimally, and then it has been dependable. Being in SEAsia, calling Europe or the US, the rates certainly beat the regular ph rates! I gladly continue using SKYPE !
Ann Omous's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/9/18 4:17 AM
This iteration of a previously good program is not worth the time it takes to download. It's clunky and I can't make calls anymore. It doesn't acknowledge my Bluetooth headphones and my contacts can't hear me. The changes they made don't make easier the contacting of friends and family. It puts Skype right in the middle so you have to fight with it like a Monty python black knight to progress. Thanks Microsoft...you keep taking things I use and making them an unmitigated, non optional, gang rape of an experience.
charliec63's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/9/18 3:37 PM
I’m on a Mac (iOS and MacOS). Sometimes FaceTime works better, but all in all, Skype seems to work better in various environments. The hardware seems to make a big difference in performance.

I love Skype, and it was already a downloaded feature when I got my iPad in 2012. Skype has been like a friend to me, and the features are easy to understand. I can't complain about this APP, so, Skype got a 5 star rating from me.
Intrepid old lady's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/8/18 6:43 PM
I do wish the powers that be would stop playing around with Skype. We older users find it difficult enough without having to learn a whole new set of instructions. When talking the screen is wonderful but to get it on correctly is a real pain in the neck. If there are any further updates that cause such confusion, a different method of keeping up with my friends in UK will have to be found. Please leave it alone!!
TheBlondBookWorm's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/8/18 3:00 AM
I have been used Skype for quite a few years now. It has improved a lot over the course of years. I enjoy Skype a lot because you can call/text friend or family with an Apple or Android device. I would chose Skype over FaceTime just because FaceTime can be very glitchy at some points. Skype seems easier to work with and doesn’t mess up chats as much as other apps similar to this one. The one thing I think Skype can work on is explaining things better and improving audio issues. For instance, Skype’s latest update seemed to confuse and irritate a lot of people. My friends and I however figured things out, but we did have a hard time finding out how to change the split screen option ( during video chat ) back to full screen. We tried asking their robot assistant but that didn’t help us. I tried to see if I could talk to a real person but I never found out how to do that. That’s the only issue I’ve had with this new update. The other thing they could work on is audio during calls or video chats. Every few calls I could hear my echo for a while and it was loud enough that I couldn’t hear one of my friends talking on the other end. Over all I think Skype is a great app. It is family friendly, free and they do fix their mistakes. I would rate this app 9/10. ( 1 being the worst and 10 being beyond amazing.)

Anti-rate!'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/8/18 11:52 AM
I am happy with the Skype update. I didn’t think I needed it, but it turns out it works a lot better on my iPad than the previous version. I had frequent issues dialing numbers before— Frequently the tones weren’t recognized. When that occurred the call wouldn’t go through. Whatever the update did seems to have helped that issue. I turned in many, many notices that the dial pad wouldn’t work. Something fixed it. I assume it was the update. I don’t care that much about the “looks” of it since it functions better for me.

And text u r friends and it saves who u called and it’s NOT like monkey and if u don’t know what monkey is u push this button and it makes u call reandom people and it’s also NOT like Omegle it’s like monkey just u text random people well calling and u call people how long u what without stoping unless they hang up but Skype is different because unlike tho games Skype makes u need to know there number thing I forgot what it’s called but it’s all numbers. So that my rating for Skype I sooooo recomend this game it is awesome and I hope u think the same thing bye hope u liked the game as well as I did.:3🦄🐒🍭🍪🧜♀️🐶

rockyjcat's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/4/18 3:02 PM
Still inferior to app as it was before MS took over. It is beyond me why the UI designers don't try actually using this app. e.g. one wants to phone a number in another app. You select copy paste. On iPad it copies the complete number like 18005551212. Try pasting that in skype dialer. You get 118005551212. Ok so you should be able to put the cursor at the one and backspace, right? Try it MS ... makes you sick to know how poorly a simple input box was designed as to be uneditable. Trash. And the major software company too. Embarrassing guys no? But it does play pretty sounds when you press on the numbers.

My major beef with this is you now can’t drag the image of me to the same side as the camera, so my eyes look to the side all the time. Split screen is useless because it turns a landscape view into a portrait one! Snapshot mode is of marginal usefulness. Otherwise, it just feels like fluff.

The prior version was more useful, because in the earlier version, I could easily confirm I had the right number. If there's a way to do this on the new release, it should be easier to find. Also, PLEASE no Cortana intrusion! Sound is fine, though.

I am very happy with my Skype number! I spend much time in the mountains of central Mexico and always have had good connection with my calls to the US! Skype has been my best phone connection now for many years! I also appreciate their excellent customer service! Thank you Skype!!! 👏👏👏 Hi skype family! It is August 2018 and I had a diifficult time just calling a number in the states now. This update is very complicated. Please advise the best way to make a call to another phone. Before this you made everything so easy! please help me with your new system! Thanks! I really need your service! Please help!

The latest updates are completely unnecessary, heavy and with problems! Disgusting app, I can't even chat because is so slow. FIX IT, BRING IT BACK TO HOW IT WAS BEFORE! Simple and easy, delete the stupid stickers and that colorful s***. Thanks.
Rkhme's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/3/18 5:35 AM
Can’t believe that any app can be so slow nowadays. Takes seconds for any action to happen after pressing the button. Calling to or receiving calls is so buggy it is make me crazy during first 10 seconds. I wish I won’t need to use Skype anymore.
Unhappy___2's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/3/18 5:11 PM
I have had so many problems with the new design which most of the time tells me there is a weak or bad connection and that I as a concequence cannot be connected. And, when I once in a rare while do get connected the there are typically problems with sound, time delay etc. So, I have often wanted to give skype a minus star. Today, though, the connection was clear as a bell and I hope it means there will be light at the end of the tunnel 🤗. Today I will give you 3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ and reserve the fireworks for later

The updates are awful. I can't video Skype unless I do the calling. I Skype with someone in a foreign country and discovered I couldn't even get into my Skype after the last update. Had to spend hours trying to get Skype to work, sign in to Microsoft? 🤔 My Skype info no longer works. Finally got on but the video wouldn't work. Then found that if I make the call it will work. Found that Skype updates won't work on some of the older Apple iPads- so they think I'm gonna buy a new iPad if I want to use Skype. NOT gonna happen!!!

Our grandchildren called and asked to Skype...a wonderful thing when they live thousands of miles away. I tried to open our Skype and couldn’t. Our son have to tap us from their computer. What don’t we like? Just about everything. I don’t want my whole address book/contact list on the Skype page. I don’t like the split screen and push ins from the right happening haphazardly. I could go on and on, but others have covered it all. THIS INCARNATION OF SKYP PE IS TRYPE...JUNK. If I could give it a negative star I would.
Pensive Listener's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/26/18 4:10 PM
Skype will inevitably log you out, they will make you reset your password, and when you log back in all your contacts and conversations will be gone. After a lot of digging you will find that somewhere else in the Microsoft ecosystem they have created another account for you, so you will have to go through a process to merge these accounts. If you don’t mind a ton of esoteric troubleshooting, this is the app for you. Otherwise use another. Also they will periodically remove all the money from your account, somehow under the guise of protecting the money they take from your account (but it’s gone - I’m sure there is another process that takes a long time to get it back eventually).
Triple disgusted's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/26/18 3:40 PM
I use Skype for face-to-face communications. As far as I’m concerned all these new gee-gays are fake jewelry on a pig. They don’t add anything to the pig and just get in the way. Besides, you’re doing what so many other program developers are doing these days: you’re adding crap that is hidden from the user and you only stumble upon by chance or not at all, if you press the wrong button or touch the wrong corner of the screen. There doesn’t seem to be any place where the new stuff is presented or explained.

LADY G 1's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/24/18 1:03 AM
I used to enjoy Skype. I purchased a number so my friends and family could contact when I’m out of the country, which is often. I’ve had this number for over 4 years and it has always provided just what I needed. Since the update no one can get through as Skype shuts off and I have to sign in every time I’m idle for a short time. What’s the sense in having a phone number that folks can’t access? And I get tired of having to renter my password every time I want to use Skype. I’m thinking about canceling my subscription and using WhatsApp instead... it’s sad. I used to enjoy using Skype. NOT ANY MORE!!!

GAMESHARQ's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/22/18 1:23 AM
Edit: I don’t know what happened with this app but it’s completely useless ever since the latest update. I tried a 4 way video chat tonight and nobody could see anybody else. Sometimes we could see each other inside a small circle, sometimes we could see some people but not others, and sometimes we could see facing outward instead of inward. This all happened completely at random too. This app is unusable now. Please fix it! This is great for video and text chats, but it could really use some more options. For starters, why is there only one ring tone? We should be able to choose from a list of different ring tones for when someone is calling you. Also, it would be cool if there were some options to make video calls more interactive, such as mini games that participants can play together over the screen. Considering how popular Skype is, I’d think they’d have the resources to make their app MUCH better.

BA in Minnesota USA's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/2/18 5:48 PM
Prior to the 8.0 update, we used Skype to keep in contact with family and friends abroad. It worked very well and was easy to use. Those days are gone according to MS. The new update is here to stay. As of Sept. 1, 2018 no support for previous version will be available. This new update adds a lot of fluff at the cost of Skype’s functionality. The core of Skype is its ability to video chat across different devices. The new Skype is so power hungry videos are now nothing more than still photographs with audio. Giving up functionality for mere cosmetics? MS says they will not be going back to the previous version. That said, I am going shopping for a new video chat app. I walked out of Wal-Mart vowing not to return. I am on my way to the door out of the MS store.
BloomyBlondeHearts's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/2/18 4:10 PM
Before the update, I had no problems with the Skype App. I use it on my ipad and type my message via an external keyboard. Most of my message are long paragraphs and as any good writer would do, I put spaces between the paragraphs. Well, thanks to this new update, the Shift+Enter function to put those spaces now lags. Before the update, the response would be instant, but now it takes I good 5 to 10 seconds before I can put in a second or third line space! I don’t know if this new update did something to mess with keyboard response time or what, but this update turned something simple into something so much more tedious. -_-

If they keep telling you that Microsoft changed. That they are no longer evil and that they are good. DON’T BELIEVE THEM. They have destroyed Skype. Last weeks upgrade now makes my calls no longer work. I have been doing a regular team call every morning at 7AM with Skype for iPad, and it has worked flawlessly until this latest release. Now I get network errors in Skype on every call. Nothing else has changed except the Skype app. To fix it, I could take the call on my computer at work. But that means changing my entire schedule, from being able to wake up at 6:50 AM for the call, to now having to wake up at 5:30 AM so I can get ready and drive into the office, in order to get there on time. Oh I almost forget the best part. Try contacting support for a Skype. You can’t or at least I couldn’t, even after logging in, they ask for private details I refuse to give and that the only support option was chat that I couldn’t get into. Or go to their community forum, which again you can’t get into unless you give them private information. Just make chat that you type in your name and that’s it. Screw you Microsoft.

erika eggplant's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/12/18 4:17 PM
Skype is great at calling and screen sharing. For those two feature I pay monthly fees and enjoy the service. The interface design has been declining and this latest release the worst yet. For the past year, each update of the iPad app has brought more silliness. The release notes describe the changes as “clean UI”. in reality, the IU is more cluttered than before. By trying to turn the app in a replacement to messages, they have made the experience unusable. I wish there was a way to return to the UI of a year ago, before whomever decided that people want to converse with reactions rather than words.

Skype keeps bothering me to write an review, so here hoes. Sorry to say it but Skype just isn’t that great, at least for video calls. It works pretty well for voice, but for video it is grainy, skips, poor audio and pretty much unusable. I try to video call my grandkids and pretty much can’t get good enough calls to make it worth doing. No near as good as Facetime on Apple, which it pains me to say.

So, Skype is a cool app. I use it on my Ipad! And I have been waiting for the day the app could be rated. And the Update is actually quite nice. I could change the Color to Black. But the problem is pretty small. Its that when the Call give us a few more options. Usually I don’t give it 5 Stars because the Call was too short. If you did, Skype would be perfect. Also can you make a few more acount colors than White and Black. (Spesifically Dark green or Purple) Thanks!

Ekgpress's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 8/1/18 8:53 PM
In the past, I was never impressed by Skype because of a number of problems — so I did not use it much. But over the past half year, I now use it all the time. The app for i-Pad continues to improve dramatically! I now multiple times each week have long conversations with foreign friends (for the purpose of learning languages) — and find in general this Skype app on I-Pad to be superb. We often text as we speak — and most of the time the app is flawless. THANK YOU for the great improvements that you continue to make. (April 2, 2018 — I am adding to the above Review that I wrote a year ago. I use Skype at least 5 times each week. Most of the time Skype works well — and for example today, it was flawless. But there are still days when I’m pretty sure the reason for my suboptimal international conversations have to do with problems from Skype — so this app remains a work in progress). ( NOTE — I keep getting requests to “rate” Skype — so today = August 1, 2018 = Version 8.25 — I am doing so again. In general — I like Skype. I’m not crazy about the update ... It took me a LONG time to find lots of features that used to be at my fingertips. Alas, I’ve gotten used to this new version — it works ok — I preferred the previous version. One of the MOST important features to me is to be able to EASILY make groups of users, as well as “favorites” on any device (phone or computer) — and I am still having trouble doing this on my ipad = VERY annoying. Hopefully you can resolve this — :)

I use it whenever I travel. For business, for personal calls, or just to catch up with my office. It’s certainly a lot less expensive than my cell phone or Hotel phone.

Forced into the new Skype on iPad. User interface is terrible. No access to Skype settings an no control over preferences. Will uninstall and find something else.
JenJenJingJing's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/31/18 12:09 PM
I have not rated anything in years but feel very strongly about this update.....I want my old skype back. While there are new features, they are unwanted. I don’t want my text bolded so all around me can read. I don’t want the squirming snake moving as others type to me, no doubt using more battery. I don’t want the text blocks jumping up and down as I type to people. I haven’t even gotten STARTED!!!!!!!
Dwezzel2's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/30/18 3:32 AM
Before no problems calling, now I get a pop up saying account blocked! I’m assuming they’re referring to the person I’m calling! Never had this happen when I was using the app before it was updated! Why change something that was perfectly fine before?? You made it unusable now! Thanks! Hope lots of other 1 Star ratings say the same!
Mitchell 76's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/30/18 1:37 AM
I have used Skype for about a decade and it has been reliable and helpful around the world. This recent update is GARBAGE! Poor audio and video seems to just get worse as time goes on since the release. The video becomes progressively pixilated, and the audio is not clear and I can’t quite understand what is being said. I can no longer reposition the smaller video window during video conferencing. This was not ready for release. I’m not sure who made the choice to release it but it’s a bad decision. I tried to put the old version back but couldn’t do it. So my advice is to wait as long as possible to upgrade or find another platform. It’s so bad I sometimes wonder if they are intentionally trying to kill Skype. Because that’s what this “upgrade” is doing.

It is just a mess. Simple thing such as the mobility of the me screen are gone And it is buggy, with screen size changing from letterbox to wide randomly All that to get an emoji button? If the long list of “improvements” are not removed, I’ll have to change to a different app. This one has lost it.
Arivaraci's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/30/18 12:45 PM
I use Skype for video interviews and meetings, and since the update I have not had one meeting that did not get dropped multiple times. A few of the meetings had to go to different platforms to continue. I’m not sure if it is even salvageable moving forward.

This version is terrible! Ok. Not the version. Signing in with Microsoft. Where did my old Skype info go? I can’t find a way to sign in using my old Skype info and the Microsoft account is as flakey as they come. I use an iPad so I’m guessing that your programmers are all Microsoft people.
magtaleon's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/3/18 9:37 PM
My phone always have call notification no matter if the phone is unlocked or not. However, on my iPad even with the app opened, 50% of the time it shows no incoming calls and thus there is no way to answer the call, but later it displayed the missed call. Please fix it! This problem has existed for way too long, get your act up, Microsoft!!!

The app works fine for voice calls to phones, even overseas. But anything else is hard to navigate. Adding money to the account from the app is difficult and the help chat was no use, wanted me to do things on the app, but switching away ended the session.

Vickotr's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/28/18 9:19 PM
As a programmer I can see a lot of accomplishments the team of Skype developers have managed to make in this release. It looks modern, no doubt about that. But the main rule of every social networking app is maintaining convenient and intuitive user interface. And for that this app deserves no more than 3stars. Comparing to the pre-upgrade UI the current one is a step backwards. If I’d be on AD team then I would make sure there is some way to get back to the previous layout. At least I would make it easy to find and display the menu with all customization and tuning options available. Does MS care of Skype customers?
Sockpuppeteer's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/28/18 2:58 AM
Unfortunately, they have chosen a new ringtone that I cannot hear well, and don't offer a way to change it to something I can hear, so I keep missing calls. As a longtime paying customer who relies on Skype, this really leaves my butt in the wind.
The_Demiurge's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/28/18 2:35 AM
The new version of Skype has the video broken and unusable. There are no controls, and video goes on and off, fro half to full screen, in different places. Pretty much unusable, and sad giv n the previous pre-Microsoft versions worked just fine.

The appearance it previously had was much better looking and functioned much more efficiently. When the keyboard is up I can’t tap the screen to make it go away, I have to press keyboard down. This update is less practical and makes Skype less visually appealing.

Hop!€'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/27/18 4:01 AM
This new update is terrible. I used to Skype on my phone until they updated the iPhone version to this confusing layout. Now I have no choice but to use another group calling app. First off, I’d like to say I’m giving this 2 stars solely because I never had major problems before the update. As soon as I opened the new updated Skype app on my iPad, all of my contacts were gone other than the favorited ones so I clicked “sync contacts” and it put all of my contacts from my iPad on my Skype. Also, all of my recent messages were gone. The last one was from March (yes I have used Skype plenty of times since). I don’t know how to work this new app layout, I don’t know how to access the chat (it’s not as easy as it was where you could swipe once and it’d be there), and I don’t know how to get my messages back. The least you could do is explain why you did this to us, how to use it, and give an option to go back to the old version!

~PaigeAlexandra~'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/25/18 4:43 PM
I did the latest update. Now when I click to video call it says I need to update my privacy settings to allow camera use. Nothing to update in my privacy settings. Go to do voice call and it says I need to update my privacy settings to allow microphone use. Again nothing to update in my privacy settings. Very frustrating. If I can't get this to work the app is obsolete.
KaoHi's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/25/18 2:53 AM
After update I can no longer play music in the background of my Skype call (from my iPad). This used to work wonderfully as I could play my music but the people I called could not hear it. Having this all work at the same time was the reason I loved using this app. If the feature is not coming back I’ll just move on to another as most of my contacts do not like Skype.

The new skype is so frustrating! I thought it was because I am 69 and just don’t think like younger people. But now I see I am not alone. They at least should have sent out a tutorial and given a choice as to when to try using the new version. In my mind, Microsoft has shown their total disrespect for their users. I know there are many alternatives to skype. I will be checking them out!

_m_a_x_'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/24/18 12:06 PM
The app has become increasingly slower with time. Call notifications sometimes don’t show up at all or start ringing with a 30 sec delay compared to a PC client. connected calls never actually transition to the call UI. Skype was fast, reliable, and not attempting to be a “social network” but now it’s trash and I can’t get my parents to move to anything else so I have to keep using it.

I will not be using this app on my iPad. There is no option to disable Cortana. From the info in the Cortana profile, it is clear that Cortana eavesdrops on every chat, every call, every video, etc. The short chat I had this morning bore that out.
olemissgrl's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/22/18 7:59 PM
I wish Skype would bring back the old version. With the old app I could set my status to away or even offline if I didn’t want to log out, but now I can only choose between active, do not disturb, and invisible. Plus, I don’t know what the status of my contacts are it just shows that they are active or how many hours or days ago they were last seen.

Sound reader's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/22/18 4:15 PM
It is hard to find any of the controls that are needed, can’t even see the ID of the people in your contact list. Microphone is spotty, and have lost it on some contacts. Have not been able to use it long enough to see if any of the buffering problems have been fixed. Since I can’t down rev this to the previous version, Microsoft maybe you can get an update out sooner than later. Anybody seeing those before they update, do yourself a favor and wait.
GAMESHARQ's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/22/18 2:56 PM
This is great for video and text chats, but it could really use some more options. For starters, why is there only one ring tone? We should be able to choose from a list of different ring tones for when someone is calling you. Also, it would be cool if there were some options to make video calls more interactive, such as mini games that participants can play together over the screen. Considering how popular Skype is, I’d think they’d have the resources to make their app MUCH better.

The original volcarna's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/21/18 8:14 PM
Yes, the update makes skype more like the one for phone. I do like the fact that I can change to dark theme. EVERYTHING ELSE I ABSOLUTELY HATE! Because of all the new changes, I think skype is now ugly. I don’t like that you have to wait to send a reply because if you don’t you’ll accidentally hit ‘send location’ after you have typed something. It’s soooooo laggy and buggy. Sometimes I’ll write something very long and meaningful to send to another person- and normally it’s important, and then skype will reload. It’s so annoying and I despise it with the power of a thousand suns. Not to mention the fact that it’s harder to delete contacts that I deleted a long time ago- but because of the update suddenly have again, my hidden conversations have come back up too! I’m just really annoyed. I wish they would make a new update that doesn’t have skype go backwards instead of forward. I really enjoy Skype but the new update has really upset me. But I’m only one person- disregard all of this if you like.

Seems microsoft wants to remove capabilities that people used skype in the first place. Want to add a contact as a phone number? Can’t anymore. Want to add a phone number to an existing contact? Nope. Since microsoft is insistent that they make skype more useless to people who use it to call phone numbers, it’s time to find another app. For what they are trying to make it into (more social), there are already better apps plus you don’t have to suffer through the sucky decision of the month that microsoft is pushing down.

I don’t know what I would do without Skype when I travel abroad. I was in China and found a mistake on my flight. I used Skype to connect me to the states and correct the problem.

Also some of my friends have no responded to the request probably thinking it could be a scam.

nutella_98's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/16/18 1:14 AM
Update Today I have missed another important call and there was absolutely no any kind of notification that I have received a call. No app badge, no alert, no history, even though they are all enabled. That’s it. I am rating this app and its incompetent Microsoft team an absolute zero. Unfortunately, there is no “absolute zero”. Assume you got one from me. —- I have all notification types enabled (app badge icon, alerts, show on lick screen, show in history, etc), and per title, I am not getting any notifications for missed calls. Eg, I turn wi-fi off for a few hours. Someone calls me (not via Skype phone just via regular Skype call). When I turn my wi-fi back on and wait, not getting any notification neither via app badge icon, lock screen, or in history, that someone has called me.

Ice boo's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/15/18 12:41 PM
For everyone who doesn’t like the iPhone version, don’t download this. The older version looked a lot nicer on the iPad. Don’t know why all the groups I had deleted showed up after installing this. Please let us install the older version. I do not like how this new update look. If I wanted this look, I would be using skype on my iPhone. Very disappointed in this new update. I guess my friends and I will be using discord instead.
plzfixui's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/15/18 11:43 AM
I was holding out, but I think it's finally time to move on to a different IM app now that you guys have destroyed Skype beyond all recognition -- first the desktop app, then the Android app, and now the iPad app. Unbelievable. You people must have the worst UX team on the planet. Enter key now inserts a new line instead of sending. Emojis don't animate or animate sporadically. Emojis look flat and horrible. The Recents tab is gone now, so now I have to see ALL my contacts. I can no longer "hide" contacts. Cortana garbage was somehow added to my contacts, and there seems to be no way to remove it directly from the app. Most media links don't get expanded with a preview anymore. I could go on, but what's the point... total disaster. This is literally the *FIRST* time I have ever bothered to leave a negative review for an app. That's how horrible this is. This is no ordinary regression. This feels like a totally different app that's been taken 1000 steps back to pre-alpha stage. What a shame.
Tlessard3's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/14/18 5:46 AM
Before this last update, you could go offline. Now, you're ALWAYS online. Also, this new version FORCES 'bots into your contact list with no option to remove them. I also got an UNSOLICITED message from a "tips and tricks" 'bot, which I assumed was spam, so I reported it. This update is pretty, but EXTREMELY impractical, for the power user. I may have to move on.
LV Brit's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/14/18 3:42 PM
Microsoft could not have done any worse with this upgrade. Terrible to use - status of users not known (I want to know if they are online and not just ‘active’). They have added unknown bot, chat history has blocked invitations and lots of useless information. Trying to sign out is difficult. Time to find different software.
Lives near Disney World's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/14/18 12:58 AM
The new update is a joke. Made by children who do not understand app coding at all. Please Skype go relearn Apple coding and redo this bad version. The sound comes and goes. Harder to run a room now. My group ended up canceling a business meeting due to a bad update of Skype.
dwkinney@'s Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/13/18 9:18 AM
Older version much better. The “lmproved” version is decidedly less informational. Preferences decidedly lacking. I don’t want my whole address book accessible to SKYPE. I want total control of my SKYPE contact list and to see easily contacts online as before. Looking for an alternative to SKYPE. Gets worse and less user friendly as improved.

unusednick's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 7/10/18 3:35 PM
Works well for the most part. Chatting and calls are great. Once I’m inside a call or chat I have no problems, it’s the stuff supports those core functions that can do with some work. Here are a few examples: Slow connecting: A bit slow to connect Skype to Skype calls. History: Some older chats and calls are vanish occasionally. Thankfully I have multiple installations, so I can retrieve stuff from other devices. Clumsy feel: The app is also quite laggy. Seen when first loading and when moving between screens. It also refreshes the chats slowly.

I have all notification types enabled (app badge icon, alerts, show on lick screen, show in history, etc), and per title, I am not getting any notifications for missed calls. Eg, I turn wi-fi off for a few hours. Someone calls me (not via Skype phone just via regular Skype call). When I turn my wi-fi back on and wait, not getting any notification neither via app badge icon, lock screen, or in history, that someone has called me.

1WackieJackie's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 6/27/18 3:41 PM
I have used Skype for years and they have improved a lot over the years. I remember when I could only use video call with Skype. My son studied abroad in Chili for 6 months and that is where I got the most out of it. We were able to talk and he was able to talk to all his family members on a very inexpensive cost. I don’t have a landline when I work out of State. I don’t always want to use my mobile phone. It is very easy to use Skype for phone calls, I haven’t ever had any issues, dialing out is easy...you don’t need to put that number in your contacts unless you want to save it. Like I said, I really do enjoy Skype, over the years I have thought about canceling, but when my mobile phone needs to be charge and we all know how it takes a while to get your Apple iphone to recharge if it’s all the way dead. Skype has been there for me. I really liked it when my fiancée didn’t have long distance on his phone and he was able to call my land line from his phone with my Skype account. Skype is great, thank you. Jackie

EMarieNYC's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 5/29/18 1:07 AM
Unfortunately, I need Skype for a new class. There is a reason I use Apple over Microsoft products, and poor design such as this is one of the reason I opted out of Microsoft for personal use. Microsoft’s answers on this are remarkably smug. They think it’s just a-okay to have random creepy people contacting you. According to them, it’s simply your job to block the calls once they happen. Not that they will ever stop. So if you are stuck with this anachronistic app, turn off your notifications and pretend it doesn’t exist, until you are called upon to use it. Then just try to convince your contacts to switch over to something superior. Like almost anything.

Voice quality is excellent and normally have no issues. I just called the US from S. Korea and had a repeated issue of not hearing the other person. Not sure of the call was dropped or not, but calling back was easy and clear...it just didn’t last. I would definitely recommend this App for traveling outside of the USA. I love the easy calling to US and other countries with the assigned phone numbers. Truly many pluses to this app. I tried a few others, but SKype works best for me.
shingwedzi's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 5/12/18 8:54 AM
I needed to modify a reservation while in France and I had free WiFi. So using Skype to call saved me a lot of money by not using my AT&T international calling plan. It was super simple!
ecoaffirmative's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 5/12/18 1:09 AM
I have used this app for years, particularly when I talk with friends in Japan and Australia, or when I am in those two countries and talk to friends in America. The app is dependable, and the sound reproduction is generally quite good and definitely better than that on my cell phone. And the cost of international calls is negligible.

Sir Goat of a Goat clan's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 5/1/18 2:43 PM
Retired, Skype saves me money. A subscriber for years, I used my Skype over wifi for when I am home for phone, and a pay as you go plan for cell service. I simply forward call through Skype when I am home, when away forward to cell. 99% of my phone usage is from home. Overall it makes good connections over my iPad on wifi connected to wide area wi-fi. It works well on the IPad. Not wild about contact list operation, but call list works well. I have never used it for overseas calling. Skype has been in operation longer than others, and its experience shows.
howie dub's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 5/1/18 2:14 AM
Always having issues with other party seeing and hearing me. Video is constantly frozen and there’s usually a lag in audio. Rarely do we have a good connection. Have an Android phone and tried it with an old Android tablet and Skype works fine on those, so I know it’s not my WiFi or internet connection.

boneytd's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 4/26/18 12:52 PM
I have used Skype for over 7 years and almost always have a great video. This app allows me to watch my granddaughter grow, talk ,walk and anything else. I have even made friends with others that have asked to message me. Just wish it was easier to learn how to work all of the features. I think it definitely could be simplified. I can’t seem to get my privacy settings correct.

Patyk1098's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 4/21/18 10:48 PM
Previous versions actually worked. I don’t know what they’re doing over at Microsoft, but they’ve effectively destroyed Skype. I can’t connect with anyone because it disconnects them as soon as they try to answer my calls -but then doesn’t show anything on my end: It just keeps ringing. When someone calls me, it answers on my phone and not my ipad. I had to log out of my phone -and even then it won’t ring on my ipad. I’ve logged out and in, uninstalled and re-installed; nothing. I’m also not the only one experiencing these issues. Beyond the broken nature of the app, the UI was changed and now it’s less intuitive. I feel like an idiot trying to figure out where everything is. Bad UX assumptions were made and this has all contributed to an increasingly horrible user experience. I’m beyond frustrated with this app, but my relatives still use it. I’m searching for a replacement and will force people to migrate if they want to get in touch with me. This bridge is burned.
hannulsky's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 4/20/18 6:22 AM
I have been using Skype for years now, and I finally downloaded the app on my iPad. I entered my email and it asked me if I wanted to use my Skype name or Microsoft account. I pressed Microsoft account and it took me to another screen. I entered my email and password but it keeps saying that there is a problem signing in. It says there is a network problem and that I should try again later. Please fix this problem!!!

Ekgpress's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 4/2/18 8:17 PM
In the past, I was never impressed by Skype because of a number of problems — so I did not use it much. But over the past half year, I now use it all the time. The app for i-Pad continues to improve dramatically! I now multiple times each week have long conversations with foreign friends (for the purpose of learning languages) — and find in general this Skype app on I-Pad to be superb. We often text as we speak — and most of the time the app is flawless. THANK YOU for the great improvements that you continue to make. (April 2, 2018 — I am adding to the above Review that I wrote a year ago. I use Skype at least 5 times each week. Most of the time Skype works well — and for example today, it was flawless. But there are still days when I’m pretty sure the reason for my suboptimal international conversations have to do with problems from Skype — so this app remains a work in progress — :)

Selecby's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 3/6/18 12:56 PM
Why hasn’t the app been updated with the new design you have for iPhone, it’s been months now. Secondly Apple offers Picture In Picture, so why doesn’t Skype use it so I can see who’s talking without having the app open. Why does the camera cut off (“camera not available in split view) when I’m in split view, doesn’t Apple sandbox so other open apps don’t have access just because it’s open. So why disable it.

jroncoble's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 3/31/18 5:48 PM
I got the 8.52/3 mos plan for unlimited outgoing calls to be able to use the iPad to make calls when the iPhone is low on charge. With a $10 pair of Bluetooth earbuds purchased on EBay, this is better than using the iPhone. Where the Verizon signal is weak, with WiFi, Skype allows a clear phone call where calls may not even be possible on the iPhone.
ScrabbleHound2's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 3/3/18 4:58 PM
I'm getting Blank message notifications, (persons name: BLANK) both when I am on lock screen, or using the iPad, yet no message within the Skype list exists! So far 6 messages in a current conversation I've been having have not shown up... and it's been 24 hours. I have screenshots to prove it… And I am really ticked off! The Skype icon may or may not show that I have a message when I get a notification on the lock screen... but it cannot be trusted. Theres a little number on the icon... it showed me I had 4 messages, but only two existed. It showed me one message this...That did not exist... after showing me notifications of two messages on the lock screen. This used to have a nice, unobtrusive, beep that allowed it to be used in the workplace. Now the beep is extremely audible, and a very annoying sound... and everybody around me can hear it. Please go back to the original quiet simple beep, or allow us to add our own tones. Since I now have to keep the sound turned off on Skype, due to this horrible loud noise, I have noticed an issue that is very important to address: if I receive a message on my lock screen, and something reboots my iPad, or clears my lock screen, like an alarm... I never know if somebody has Skyped me or not, because the little red message indicator no longer shows up when I open it to the iPads home screen I also do not get a little red indicator if a message shows up in the little notification drop-down, and I'm not looking at my iPad at the time of the drop down. I like to answer my Skype in a timely manner, but I'm unable to do so if I don't know that messages have come in. Please fix this notification bug... And that horrible tone!

I am bummed that everyone is telling me this is free! I’ve tried using it and it wants me to pay up something first! Can’t even delete my account now to start over so my phone number is tied to it! Can’t even add an email as everyone tells me thats how to do it for free. No where on my app is a place to enter an email. No one can even find me. Not sure what other app to use when someone wants to do a face to face meeting.

russvers's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 3/2/18 8:58 PM
I have used this service for years, with genuine enthusiasm. Since Microsoft bought Skype, however, the experience has gone downhill. Microsoft has taken everything that was good about Skype and turned it into mush, by trying to monetize every aspect of the service. How they can be so short-sighted is beyond understanding. I'll continue to use the service, as I am overseas frequently, but am now aware of its new limitations. Too bad.

Hdhddhjsjs's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 3/17/18 3:59 PM
Despite most people thinking that Skype is outdated and subpar, I have never had any problems with it. Calls always go through perfectly, call quality is always as good as you could hope for, and I have never had a call dropped on me. I honestly don’t understand why so many people seem to have problems with it. Many people are saying that there are much better alternatives, an example being Discord. I tried Discord for a brief period and I found that it didn’t have a lot of the functionality that Skype had. Discord servers were irrelevant. Who needs to talk to 50 or more people at once? I’m just trying to talk to 2 or 3. The ranking system was strange. Why would you feel the need to have ranks and privileges? I just want to talk not to be in the army. I feel that without a doubt Skype captures the essence of what someone needs in a chatting service. (Although personally I don’t agree with the most recent appearance change. Everything just looks a little off now.)

Kimtopia's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 3/16/18 11:23 AM
I like Skype, it allows me to keep in contact with friends and family who are not local. I am giving it 4 stars because of the UNDO button. The Undo button is located right next to the space bar, so if you are not paying attention - your entire comment is gone. Could you find another place to put it where you have to actually have to consciously look for it when you decide you want to undo a conversation. OR put in a “are you sure you want to undo this” warning before everything disappears.

Anon grumps's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 2/9/18 2:49 PM
When it works it’s ok but it’s become increasingly buggy. It’s unable to connect on iOS entirely recently, which renders the app useless. Microsoft should invest some time in divesting themselves of Skype so it can maybe go back to being well written, designed, secure and not based on the business model of selling your information, oh and maybe it can actually work at all again. I give it two stars for at least somewhat working on other platforms than iOS.

Dkac's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 2/7/18 10:29 AM
The sound quality is great, any problems i have I believe is internet connection. The problem is I don't get notifications when they are turned on using ipad. I should get notification and it should even stay on my screen until i remove it or another notification replace it, at the very least I should have a notification on the app saying I have x amount of unread messages. Also when trying to add someone new to contact list it's not very intuitive, the menu you think should work only will search your contacts; plus users can have the same name so when adding a new contract there could be a list of 30+ people. You have to scroll the list and look for something you recognize, since the data is optional you may or may not find the person you want so you have to message several people. Just use email address instead of user name or find another solution

Divr82's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 2/5/18 9:34 PM
I've been an occasional user for years and feel lucky to have Skype. I would like to see the interface improved, but the quality of my phone calls has been superior to my Verizon cell phone calls between the latest iPhones and U.S. landlines. Back in 1983, I was victimized with a $3,000 surcharge by Marriott Hamburg for a 30 minute business call back to my U.S. office. Skype is an incredible bargain when compared with those times.
Johnnyenglish2's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 2/5/18 5:49 PM
We have used Skype for years to communicate between our offices across the world. It was simple, there were no bots, no Cortana and the contacts were easy to find, if you missed a call there was a clear notification. Now the team at Microsoft are adding so many features and quite honestly cr-p that the essence of the app has been lost, we are going to change to something simpler and more useful.
jasondunn's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 2/4/18 3:23 PM
I don’t know what Skype is doing, but yesterday I did two video chats with different people in other countries and the video quality was absolutely awful. Heavily pixelated and frequent freezing. When that happens I tend to blame the WiFi or bandwidth, but in both cases we all had plenty of upstream and downstream bandwidth (20+ mbps) and full WiFi strength. And in both cases, when Skype's video was freezing up, we switched to FaceTime and the video quality was perfect! So I’ve come to the sad conclusion that Skype has degraded to the point where I can no longer use it. It’s the end of an era. 😟

BabsKetchum's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 2/24/18 5:18 AM
The Skype for iPad app hasn’t been updated in ages and lacks all the new features in the iPhone version. Also, the iPad version is buggy as can be with notifications. It randomly shows notifications that can’t be acted upon. The iPhone version doesn’t show me these useless notifications ever, and neither does the Windows version. I wish the iPhone version worked well on the iPad. It works, but doesn’t display full screen. Seems dumb that Skype can’t make a single app work for both. But this is Skype, they are terrible with making interfaces. Just look at all their failures to make a working Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 app. It’s sad. Since switching from Windows to iOS, I have seen how much better quality FaceTime and iMessages are compared to Skype. Lastly, why is Skype a social networking app? What marketing idiot thought that was the right category?

3 words. Best. App. Ever. It’s amazing,I used this for nearly 2 years! Whoever gives the app 1 star is a meanie! Make more Skype apps,like Skype games,Skype art,it’s countless how many apps I want you to make your own version of. I can text my dad all morning if I can,(and yes, I actually did that once) sending him funny texts with emojis and emoticons! I wake up to call my dad in fact. Seriously, it’s the bomb! But my only complaint is that whenever there’s problems, I can’t call my dad,and that makes me sad and mad!😠😫But that doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE the app! I am obsessed with this app, I don’t know how to describe how good it is!

3 hours to get a dam number, purchased manny times I order to have enough credit to get a number, after which, would only process my number after I input my credit card and pay again. On top of all, the freaking S*** doesn’t accept SMS which is the whole reason I needed a number in the first place. This app is a time wasting machine. It doesn’t crash but user interface is HORRIBLE, confusing, running in circles etc... there gotta be something better out there...

rabbit1029's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 12/9/17 12:41 PM
TLDR: current version usable but lags badly on new devices and horrible on anything over a year old. Since 2009, I use Skype as my home phone, paying (US) $65 per year. I used Skype 4.1x across several device types because subsequent versions lost critical features (example: 4.2-4.3 crashed a lot, 5.0-5.3 dropped skype-in phone number support, which i pay for). Subsequent versions regained features while losing others, so I stuck with the last version that worked. In 2017, they shut off and started blocking older versions from connecting, so my DECT phones became obsolete and I was finally forced to upgrade my ios devices. This version (finally) has all the features, but has lag when attempting to start a phone call and when dialing options on an automated menu. The lag on my 2017-released ipad pro is pretty bad, is horrible on my 2016 ipad pro and ipod touch, and anything older is nearly unusable. It's usable if you're patient. For the price, I still use skype, but hope they can do better.

The Celestial Dragon's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 12/8/18 12:30 PM
Edit: This is my current appraisal of Skype as of December 5th, 2018. Two weeks in a row, Skype has been not virtually un-usable — it’s been COMPLETELY unusable as a way to have a study group or even a 1 on 1 conversation. I’m wondering what I’m going to have to do here. I pay for this service and it’s turned to dog poo. This is unacceptable. I am a VERY unhappy customer. The part of my review down below was written back when Skype was useful. Now — not so much. How can I rely on this service? _______________________ I’ve been using Skype for years and I wasn’t even an early adopter of Skype. But for the entirety of my using Skype it’s always worked for me and always been very reliable. The call quality is great for me. The quality of the app is also great. There are still features that are on the Windows desktop that are far cooler but this does everything I need and it works well. Keep up the good work, Skype!

This app is not secure at all. find something else to communicate with. Microsoft is only good for ruining things, never improving them. paid subscription was cancelled, never giving this co. money again. ever! The company does not listen to customers, just does whatever it wants. THERE IS NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT - just links to go to a "community" page where other frustrated users congregate to guess at possible workarounds.

charliec63's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 12/31/18 12:55 PM
I’m on a Mac (iOS and MacOS). Sometimes FaceTime works better, but all in all, Skype seems to work better in various environments. The hardware seems to make a big difference in performance. Older stuff does work as well as newer stuff. All in all I’m very happy with the apps performance and features. Updated 12/18: the app works well. It all seems to depend upon the bandwidth of the connection, which is probably reflected in the compression algorithms and the power of the computers on either end as well. I generally have no complaints. I’m also sure Microsoft is busily attempting to monetize the operation. It’s still a pretty cool service.

nutella_98's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 12/29/18 12:49 PM
The problem with Skype is many, which reflects the sad state of what hiring has became today. I am curious how many real developers working on Skype as opposed to out of college/university punks with a few years of experience who can pass answering interview questions? It is truly disappointing how Microsuck has completely RUINED that once was a quite decent experience. This, sadly, reflects where society is headed today - but that’s an entirely different topic and discussion. There was a time and place where I was able to show video to someone I was talking to. I made a call via wifi (not phone call) and while in the call, I was able to activate and utilize the camera on the back of the device to show the environment around me. While it is true that I can still do this in a way, have you paid any attention of the hot topic of: User Experience? When I flip the camera on my iPad, holding it in portrait mode (that’s VERTICALLY for Skype developers with Ph.D. in computer science...), I see nothing but BLUE with a tiny tiny little rectangle in the top right corner, which shows the video the other party supposed to see. The problem is, this rectangle is so tiny that I cannot tell what the hell is on it. It is about 1/100th of the entire iPad display area. I’d say this is an excellent way of leveraging all the UX courses you have taken on Lynda.com. The worst part is, when I tap on this rectangle, it doesn’t expand to full screen. Nope. It actually flips around to show video from the front facing camera. GENIUS!!! (...sarc...) The other technological invention is that regardless of the fact that I have every single notification enabled, both within the app and in the system as well, I even have notifications enabled during ‘do not disturb’ hours, I do not receive ANY notifications (eg when someone writes me a chat message). I have already made a negative review because of this quite a few versions ago. But then again, who cares. This is not about the customer having a decent experience, but instead the glorification of an incompetent team at Microsuck - who, chances are, holds “qualifying” H1-B visas, while their spouses work in various recruitment (aka headhunter) agencies. I received a message on Saturday. Today is Wednesday. That’s 4 days ago - for the weak minded. Regardless of my notification setting enabled everywhere (as I pointed out above) not a beep, nothing in the notification center, not even an app icon. Piece of advice. Don’t let that university computer science degree go to waste. There are many open positions at Uber where you could possibly utilize your training at “user experience” ways you have not even dreamed of. Thanks for an utterly useless experience, Microsuck! And while you are at it, why don’t you give users an extra color option for the user interface in the name of “pushing UX to its limits”...! iPad 6 / iOS 12.1
G Uehling's Review of Skype For IpadReviewed on 12/29/18 12:49 PM
When Microsoft bought Skype things changed. I all of a sudden had a separate account which would ring sometimes but it was not my normal account. I can only guess that it was a method for them to integrate with Outlook or another MS product. It really made things difficult when working with an iPad, Android phone and Windows 10 laptop. Of course the Windows laptop worked the best which is why I think they were doing something in the background to make it work with other MS apps. Things are better now so I rate the app a 3 out of 5.

I am so happy that I live in this era of technology. I realize that there are faults and even biases, but I love using Skype, Messenger, and FB Messenger. I can easily keep in touch with my son who lives on the other side of the world. I also study the language of his country over Skype. He told me about italki.com which is a platform for finding people who want to exchange languages. There I found a wonderful native, and we learn each other’s language by immersion in weekly conversations. Skype reception is so clear, and that is important for language learning. The ability to quickly type in correct spellings and phonetic pronunciation is wonderful.
