Tag Contacts 4/5
A nice addition to this application would be to tag, and alert, when a contact goes online. On the computer version, we can tag contacts when their status changes. I would like that ability for the application, but also receive notifications.
Will this be in an upcoming update?
Who needs an office? 5/5
IM, conferencing, phone calls using my office number, even sharing slides from my iPhone. Everything works very well. Reviews from people who don't have Skype for Business or thier companies have a poorly built infrastructure must be the reasons this app doesn't have more positive reviews.
Super unreliable!! 1/5
It doesn't matter if you four bars or no bars. It can work equal well but providing you NO SERVICE! I can get this piece of crap to work about half the time. Don't rely on it to get any real business done!
Saves me Daily 5/5
Great app, able to log in and communicate as if I were in the office... Great for running late or working off site
Cannot tell if a call is coming from a queue 3/5
By KPH - Sling
I am a member of several Skype queues and really need to be able to see what queue a call is coming from. I wish there was a way to suggest features inside the app itself.
IMs disappear completely in chat... 3/5
Even though part of the IMs displays in the notifications on lock screen, etc., when I swipe right and open chat, it is always blank as if the notification was false. But I know it wasn't because my colleagues are then expecting me to know what they said. It's embarrassing. I have to ask them to repeat. I might as well delete the app and use it on Desktop only if I'm going to be making excuses on Skype/Microsoft's behalf. The concept is good, but application needs work.
GREAT APP 5/5
SAVES TIME - INSTANT CONTACT - GREAT RESULTS
Meh. Missing lots of featured 2/5
Why doesn't this app have basic features like share an image? Audio chat. Video chat. Screen share. On the positive the design and user experience is quite nice!
Opens to black screen 1/5
Cannot use latest version; when I open the app, it starts to load and then displays a black screen. Have rebooted phone and restarted app but problem still remains. This same issue was reported with v6.0, but was supposedly fixed in v6.0.1447; appears to be back again.
Phone Call Integration Disappeared 1/5
It was a great day when this app was updated recently to integrate phone call support with the iPhone. This latest update has removed that integration, so now Skype calls are put on hold when an incoming cellular call is received. I'm dumbfounded as to why this feature was removed.
Awesome app! 5/5
Nothing like having work connectivity in your pocket!
Works as expected 4/5
I have had no issues with this app. Does exactly what I need it to do.
Version 6.15 Kills Battery Life 1/5
The app had been a useful tool for mobile connections and presentations. However, the latest version (6.15) must have been poorly thought out because it consumes battery life much more greedily than its predecessor versions. A 45 minute conf call cost me half of the battery power in my iPhone 6S.
This app and it's accompanying backend are beyond terrible.
Good to show status, but needs to be quicker. 4/5
It works considerably well when working remotely, but needs to load faster. It takes a little long to show updated status of other users.
Awesome Business Tool 5/5
Great for communicating with my team that are located al over the world
Love it 5/5
Love being able to use messenger on my phone while traveling
Nice app, does the job well enough. 3/5
I'm able to attend conference calls and view presentations while waiting at air ports or traveling by plane. I have not jumped into all the features but it works great for what I need the app to do.
Update: Like most other reviewers, I don't like the fact that IM that are received on the phone app don't show up after you have clicked on it to respond. That's why I have reduced my rating.
Please bring Apple Watch support 5/5
Great tool for businesses but... c'mon we need Apple Watch support so we can look like Inspector Gadget in meetings. 🤓
Doesn't sync with desktop Skype for Business 2/5
My complaint is the same complaint I have with Skype for business running in 2 instances on any platform, in that they won't sync.
Example: Skype for Business is signed in on 2 Windows machines and a message is sent to the user. Only 1 PC receives the message. So why even let you be signed into 2 locations at once ?
It should work like Messages does across iOS and macOS
Receive everywhere, reply from anywhere
Can't see messages in threads 1/5
I can only see notifications when they show up in iPhone notifications but if I click on them or in the conversation thread within the app, I can't see anything. It makes it pretty useless and I'm disappointed it hasn't been caught and fixed already
Love the app 5/5
Really helps in my busy days
It's good when it works 4/5
By k nathan
Unfortunately like every other Microsoft product there are lot of quirks, sometime I can't get the dial screen, had to force quit and reopen. I will put on mute and can't un-mute with out force quitting.
Having access to meetings In phone is great with ability to view screen and chat.
Awesome and handy work tool 5/5
It's very useful when you are in travel or remove and take work meeting or presentation.
problem logging in 3/5
I have worked with one of my employees with getting them logged into their Skype for Business on their iPHone, but regardless if on a Mac OS X or Windows 7, he wasn't able to get into the mobile app. I hope that the developers would reply back to me as I do have the logs that I had him email me so that they can checked out by the developers
IT Service Desk - WGU
Slow! Needs more features. 2/5
By Randall King
First problem: I rely on the "Conversation History" folder in Outlook to find *all* of my SfB chats, not just the ones I happened to have on my Windows VM. It stinks that this app can't sync those and add them to my mailbox folder somehow. Microsoft controls O365, Exchange Server, Exchange Online, Skype for Business Server, Skype for Business Online, the Outlook client in Windows, and this SfB mobile app; no reason they can't make it work.
Second problem: The app is *slow*. People's presence information takes 15 seconds, 30 seconds, or sometimes several minutes to update. That should not happen. It's instantaneous in the Windows app. Same sort of delays happen with changing my presence (status), changing forwarding settings, etc. Makes the app unusable. It's faster to use Remote Desktop and access the client through my Windows VM!
Third problem: When I'm placing a new call, why disable the speakerphone button?! This app requires that the call be connected first, and then I can enable speaker. But, that requires that the other party wait on me before the conversation can begin. Microsoft misses details like this. Stupid. One example of many quality problems with their software.
Works like magic 5/5
Best IM/Videoconf system
Easy to use 5/5
Very easy to use and user friendly. Clear sound and have no issues.
Works great! 5/5
Connection and sound quality is great. Comes in handy when I'm away from my computer and have to attend meetings.
Good, not great...but not horrible 4/5
As a standalone app it works quite well. Not as fully functional as desktop version, but still has many features. And it's disappointing that it doesn't synchronize well with the desktop.
I only use it because I'm force fed by IT. Very clunky, non-intuitive, and inconsistent. Done by a committee of outsourcers. Then there's the bad news. Skype is fragile, doesn't recover well, makes every conversation - every one - start with how crappy Skype is as callers call in and are dropped, or are late because it wasn't working. I'm among them, so I know. I used to badmouth WebX, now I long for those good old days - at least it worked, and didn't consistently drop callers and whole conversational phrases. BTW, I ran both on my existing Mac platform, over same network.
Missed conversations are blank 1/5
Receive a notification of a missed conversation yet when you open it, there's absolutely nothing in it. You have no idea what the other party said. Pretty worthless.
Been Working Great 4/5
I haven't noticed any problems. It works just as I wanted it to.
Very bad sync issues 1/5
This app is pretty bad when it comes to syncing messages across devices. The messages sent or received in different devices does not work seamlessly.
The app is fine 4/5
Skype is not yet comparable to WebEx features, but the mobile app is great and provides expected functionality.
Current Version Not Showing Callers' Shared Screen 3/5
Current Version Not Showing Callers' Shared Screen
Good Stuff 5/5
I use the phone app for all my calls and chats!
Missing conversation 2/5
When I receive a new IM and open the conversation, the conversation disappears. This has been a problem on previous versions as well. It is very annoying and needs to be fixed. It takes it from a useful app to a remove it off of my phone as quickly as possible app. Otherwise it would work for me.
Won't open at all 1/5
By Gaurav ninja 1111
The new version is not stable.
If I try to open it closes itself immediately
Can't see more than conversation preview 1/5
I get alerts with the first few words of a conversation someone is sending me, but then when I click on the conversation to read the full message, it's blank! Useless!!
Great with occasional glitch 4/5
Good and reliable. If there is 4.5 star I d give.
A very good business tool 5/5
As an IT firm communications is a must and this App is a fantastic product to use.
Don't ask me about reviews 1/5
By FL consultant
A happy user. 5/5
Great app for my work.
Once upon a time 1/5
By Biff Joergensen
I used to be able to use S4B (lync?) to be productive on my mobile device.
First, features disappeared, now I can't even start the app. All it does is crash.
Nice app 5/5
By Srinivas Antham
It is very nice app
It is never disappointed me
My laptop version always had a problem (may be due to office network) but mobile version never had any issues
Excellent app for an excellent business tool! 5/5
I always like Microsoft products for their integration. This app is not an exception. It works really well with the desktop version. Particularly the calls can be transferred easily from desktop to mobile and vice-a-versa. Makes it very useful for people on the go. In last 4 years of my use, it had rarely failed. And I have used it for multiple customerswith no issues.
Great app! 5/5
Easy to use!
Not sure how this got all the good reviews.. 1/5
This app Ames high, but falls wholly and woefully short. The calendar feature, instead of just giving you a calendar, insists on giving you a list format. Also, I consistently receive "We could not deliver your message" whether or not my message actually goes through. Also, background functionality randomly cuts out, so unless you have this app fullscreen all the time, you're likely missing messages. AOL perfected this basic messaging functionality decades ago. Catch up.
