  • You can’t spell horrible without Microsoft

    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

    I'm glad that something like Skype exists, but I wish it were a little better designed.
  • Too many dropped calls

    While skype may be better than other similar apps, it does still suffer from many of the same issues, most notably being dropped calls, even when both parties on the call have a more than sufficient connection. Too often skype will still pop up with “reconnecting, there’s a poor network connection” and even when our internet is just fine. It does this every night, often multiple times, and then it takes on average anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes before we can call back and stop getting the “connecting” message when we try to restart the call... and it’s beyond frustrating. We also often get the “poor connection” along with pixilating and skipping, again even when the internet of both parties is just fine. Definitely better than other apps, but still needs quite a bit of improvement when it comes to call connectivity and such. Would also be nice if the call rating thing didn’t just pop up after calls are voluntarily ended. It never asks me to rate a call when the call is dropped, which makes it rather difficult to actually let them know when there’s an issue with a call without going through the process of having to contact them and argue with them about internet connections that have already been checked and confirmed as being fine.

  • Touch ID and Face ID

    It would be helpful if Skype allowed Touch ID and Face ID for added security.
