IM Doesn't Work 1/5
The app shows me missed IM notifications, but I cannot see the message, nor can I send IMs. That's pretty much all I use Skype for Business for on mobile, therefore rendered ineffective. Lync 2010 it is.
Doesn't save password 1/5
Even though option to save password is checked on login screen. Have to input password every time app is used.
By Jassp k b
Whenever we join a skype meeting from phone we lost the audio if we receive any call on phone after that we have to rejoin the call .. Not good :(
Can't join meetings directly from calendar entries 4/5
Since upgrading to iOS 10, I cannot connect to meetings in the app without using the workaround site. Every time there is an update to the app I am hopeful it has been resolved, but each time I am disappointed. Please resolve this issue.
Poor Syncing 1/5
This app is good for sending but that's about it. Takes years for conversations to sync, you'll get notified you got a message & wont show up in log for 15 minutes, and responding to messages even slower!
CallKit doesn't work 1/5
Since the implementation of CallKit and integrating Skype for Business calls into the recent call log as well as lock screen functionality the app no longer operates as expected. Calls into my Skype for Business phone # get sent straight to voice mail without and notification on my phone. There is no notification of an incoming call. It essentially turns the app into a voice mail service with the ability to dial out.
Terrible business application 2/5
This past year my company switched from using Skype to Skype for Business. It is insane that S4B can't manage to have the same reliability as the free app. Yes, joining a meeting or conference call on the mobile app is a nice ability, but the messaging is just terrible. Messages don't show up or show on locked screen but then aren't in app. Whenever I am added to a group conversation I only see what the creator said, the other messages don't come through. Conversation history isn't there. In Skype, I could message someone who was away or even not on and they'd get the message when they came back. Not here! The dictation is often not working. Also unless you have the app open on your main screen, you'll appear away after a couple minutes. My company always relied heavily on the messaging aspect of Skype and Skype for Business is nowhere near as good!
Rename app to "Send error report" 1/5
I have never started this app without "Send Error Report" pop up.
It never works correctly.
It is so bad I want to go back to Notes Sametime on Blackberry. Microsoft should pay you to use it for testing purposes. Horrible!
Missed Conversations Partially Shown 3/5
By MSU Coke Boi
You cant see the full missed message under the contacts name. When you tap it, it just starts a new conversation.
Does not work on Wi-Fi 2/5
This app works okay for me to be able to attend Skype for Business meetings on my phone but it only connects to the server when I am on a cellular network--it's never able to connect when I am on Wi-Fi. Please fix this!
Can help in a pinch 2/5
By But might be expensive
Skype for business is a neat app and does have it's uses. However, there are a lot of things that need to be addressed. IM don't always appear, more often than not I'll see the preview of the IM from my lock screen but when I open the app it is like it never existed, until I get the missed conversation email. I could be actively typing a msg to a co-worker if they send me a msg it doesn't appear in conversation but rather in my email again. The one thing I do like about this app is it lets look up coworker contact info away from my desk.
Flawed update 1/5
The latest update will not show any of my meetings, it keeps telling me my credentials are incorrect.
Bad version 1/5
Before the update I was able to click on a notification and the conversation would load. Now it just loads a blank window with no content. I have to wait until it syncs with outlook to read what the person wrote. Bummer.
Lost messages 2/5
New updates have fixed many bugs. Really like. Wing able to join and see the meeting content. But you will lose messages. The app doesn't seem to keep conversations very reliably. Works great if you are in the app but if you leave the app it loses and fragments conversations. Many times i have to refer to the notification to see what the message said because it's missing from the skype conversation. Needs work
Searching for contacts in the company directory doesn't actually work. The wait icon just sits there and spins and spins and spins...
Hot garbage 1/5
Constantly misses messages, or won't load the message after clicking a new notification. Conversations and conversation history don't sync.
Unreliable and poorly designed 1/5
Microsoft should have used the regular Skype app instead... The user experience/interface of the biz app is poorly developed and clunky to use. The app itself is inconvenient and unreliable. Often I am not alerted to incoming messages and the lack of a unified message history and syncing to the desktop client is inconvenient.
App is not saving password 2/5
After the last update, the password is not being saved when the toggle to save it is active. It erases when you log out and restart the application cleanly. The username is retained however. Frustrating!!
Not good enough! 1/5
This being owned by Skype should work flawlessly but it doesn't. Meetings do not show with the last few updates. If this feature never worked I wouldn't complain too much. But how can you screw up something that worked for a long time. Not reliable and a waste of my time. Thanks for nothing.
Loving it 5/5
By AngryBird lover007
The app is very reliable and very consistent!!! Love it!!!
Doesn't save password anymore 3/5
When I close the session after being logged in, my password is not saved and I have to retype it if I want to log back in, despite having the save password switch engaged.
Very nice and stable app 5/5
It is always easy to use and so stable.
Love the App 4/5
Wish you could share your phone screen.
Sorry not there yet!!! 1/5
By Colorado guy2
Too clunky. Not dependable. Not worth it
Good stuff. Usually.
Skype unleashing lots of exciting features at impressive speed!! 4/5
I'm impressed by the slew of recent features (in particular incoming calls integration with native phone log).
Lacks basic features 1/5
Here's my list of problems they are all so basic:
- starts multiple chats with the same person every time I start a new conversation
- sometimes not all the messages load when talking to someone
- often times I don't get a notification that I received a message
Basic reliability overall, it's a chat app guys
Makes life so much easier 5/5
Omniware uses Skype to be able to schedule our tri-weekly stand-ups and also be able to quickly contact each other throughout the day as needed. It's very convenient and rarely has any issues. We love it!
One good application 5/5
Works very well on LTE and Wifi. Attending calls on the go even with screen sharing is very easy. The number of updates this gets makes my Mac app feel so jealous.
Poor App Support 1/5
Doesn't support iOS 10.x and doesn't support login ; i am able to login using same credentials for desktop app (Skype for Business)
Microsoft needs to fix it quickly and release an update.
Simply doesn't work. 1/5
This app refuses to keep me logged in, doesn't receive any of the messages I get when people ping me, AND can't keep my conversations. Serious bugs that need to be squashed ASAP
Reliable and Efficient 5/5
I really enjoy the Skype App. It allows me to quickly reach out to coworkers while I'm on the go. It also makes me available for contact at any time which does wonders for my customer service. I can't recall a time where the app has failed me. Highly recommended.
You will lose messages 1/5
It seems to have no way of saving messages short term or long term. For example, if you get a message and the app isn't open... you will get an alert with a partial message "hey important ques...." but then we you click the alert to follow into the app, the conversation is blank. Even worst when you have this open and the desktop apps. Because of the missing messages it is not worth it
Solves purpose. Easy to use.
Very nice app... 5/5
Never had any issues with it till now. Thanks.
Works great with O365 and SfB. 5/5
Like working mobile with O365 and Sfb.
No multitasking or snapping. 1/5
This app doesn't do snapping or multitasking on the iPad. Huge bummer that I can't have this open with outlook beside it. Kinda defeats the point of using it on a iPad Pro. 😑
Works great 5/5
Very stable app compared to other OS
Way better than Lync Ever Could Be 5/5
Though the title says it all. Skype app for business is much better than either of the Microsoft Lync apps were. Keep up the good work Microsoft and I am glad to see you in the App Store!
It was never good, but now just terrible 2/5
The only thing I still like is ability to join Skype meetings without needing to dial. Otherwise it is pretty unstable, locks up occasionally, and conversations with the same individual on two devices don't show up as a single thread. Slack is much more polished. So is regular Skype.
The best 5/5
Very very good love it
Nice app 4/5
Works much better after the latest update.
Gets better and worse at the same time... 3/5
Each release they seem to fix some issues, ignore others, and almost always cause a few new ones.
In this release it seems that when someone is presenting content I can no longer rotate the screen to allow the content to better fill the screen. :(
Love it 5/5
With this app now I don't miss any messages from my team members when I am away from my desk!
Starting to hate it!!!! 2/5
By Parsi G.
When I'm logged it's fine and it's the best thing ever. But if I log off it just won't let me log back in. What pisses me off is that it know my credentials because when I purposely put in the wrong pw it tells me it's wrong, so I put it back correctly and it just doesn't log me in!!! I literally wait weeks to log back in. I would just leave it and be done with it, but I need it for work! Can you please do something about this!!!!!
Better every month but a ways to go still 3/5
By Chris Sos.
SFB releases new functionality every release and it keeps getting better every time. Yet lots of key functions still seem to be missing. Two big examples: would love to start a conversation on my computer and pick it up on my phone (with history) and go back to the computer. I can message from both but I lose the history of the conversation. Second is that the app has no way to clear unread messages (that I answer on the computer). You gotta click on them one at a time. Argh. Keep on the keeping on Microsoft.
I love this
Advanced options buggy 3/5
By SfB mobile user
If you toggle auto-detect server switch under advanced option, app crashes!! The there no way to override auto detect
Please get multitasking support 1/5
The app works well enough, however for being a business app I am disappointed that I am unable to multitask with it. Would love to see split-view, slide over, and even picture in picture for video calls.
Also the ability to whiteboard over content sharing (and taking advantage of the Apple Pencil) would be huge.
Terrible Update 1/5
Broken now. Cannot connect to server, crashes when Auto Connect is selected.
