iOS 11.0.3 1/5
Since my iPhone updated with iOS11.0.3, I can’t make the call. It just showing connecting and hung up itself.
New design is horrible! 1/5
The designer needs to be fired!
Not working 1/5
By Syed Sana Hassan
When I try to open the app, says I need to update the app but when I go to iTunes Store I only see the option to "open" the app and there is no option to "update".
You have ruined a good app single handedly
I need my credit back 1/5
On my old version I had credit 10$ , now it shows $0 balance. Tried to update the balance but nothing happens. Someone please create a new app for Skype users. I done with Skype, will use different apps, I use to love Skype though and I used it for 10years
Cant send SMS 1/5
Skype! Fix yourself please. This latest update is crazy, clattered and has lost the taste of skype in it.
Update: amongst other non-skype things that these new updates have and I echo all the frustrations, I can’t send sms to phones from skype. Time to say goodbye to this nonsense.
Terrific app 5/5
Excellent and inexpensive way to call across the Atlantic to the USA from Europe!
its always the best 5/5
skype is always the best, been using it for long time, it will always my choice app connecting with my families.
The most redicilous app in app store 1/5
User interface — — — — 0
Interaction with app — —0
You get lost while using this app.
It is not safe at all... what i mean with this.... you open app and you dont know where you going!!! It is like walking blindly!!!
Very disappointed. I dont use it anymore in my phone....
Horrible interface, keeps me signing out every time, shows my presence even though I turned it off like million times. Skype is trash.
Horrible. Just horrible. 1/5
Skype is a really great concept, but is THE MOST UNRELIABLE app I have ever used. Sometimes it works, usually it doesn’t. Good luck getting it to connect an iPhone to any computer. There are constantly messages stating to update, which never works. I’m really disappointed.
After some updates I'm adjusting my review. I appreciate the developers trying to improve this relatively quickly. As said before, it looks fancy, but some things are still not around. It's still impossible to have phone (non skype) contacts appear under 'contacts' as before; they are now in some secret realm of my account that I can't even reach... they just vanished, which is super annoying for us users of skype as a phone equivalent.
This, plus the recent removal without warning of all support to freetalk devices for Skype phone numbers, and personalized voice mail messages have left me considering cancelling my phone and subscriptions with skype.
Hope those services will actually be implemented soon again!!!
Signing in 1/5
Every time I want to use this application, it tells me my password it’s incorrect.
I follow the instructions and verify my account, create a new password and the next day, it’s the same problem.
I have to create a password everyday!
They do not own all of the gifs that I have. I refuse to download my gifs to them. They do not own them! Skype is a terrible app. but furthering predatory behaviors.
Great improvements by Skype. 5/5
By mighty ani
I have been using Skype over 10 years now and it has undergone some rapid and progressive improvements. It’s really awesome.
New update features feel insecure 3/5
I’ve been using Skype for years now and I really don’t like much of the updates. I have an iphone 6 and I get a lot of lag time between messages. Not only that but calls are dropped frequently and I don’t like the new camera interface. There’s also this new feature that pops up called Cortana and I don’t find it comforting that she is so persistent on knowing all of my info or location. I don’t want that feature and would rather have the option turn that off completely. I would also not like to see her “chat” just left there and want to be able to delete it. Skype people, help me out?
Worse than ever! 1/5
Ok, this is now the worst video calling app on the planet. I can't even give it one star. My son was supposed to have a Skype interview today and he couldn't login to his account, and he tried three different computers. This crappy app may have just cost him a job with a great cyber security firm. Thanks , MSFT, for yet another disaster!
Thanks for the response. Won't use it. Your service is horrible.
Strange theme 2/5
As a long time user, I have to say that this version is not working out well. The template is just very confusing and inconvenient. Takes a lot of time to get used to this version. I believe as a communication app, u should just be simple and easy to use. Please change it back ..:(
People who approved this new version clearly don't use Skype. Completely out of touch. Idiots.
How the f*ck do you get rid of the stupid "enable push notifications" message? Most aggravating thing on th planet.
What a rip-off! 2/5
I have been a Skype user for years, even had $10 in my paid credit. Now, my user ID is not recognized, can’t log in to my old user name and my $10 is a puff of rip-off smoke. Jeez, this is as bad as the recent iOS 11 dev banditry, where suddenly your 32-bit game you paid for is now not playable because the developer hasn’t updated the old app but now a new one just like it for even more bucks. Hmmm, how does a class take action against this?
It's good! 5/5
👌 it is good
By Zee French Baguette
This app is terrible! I signed in with both my email and my phone number and it asks for age verification every time! It thinks I’m under 13 and not an adult so I need “parents permission”! When I press that button it takes me back to the same page. I have deleted and re downloaded multiple times and it still does the same thing. It has been like this for months. I am very angry about this issue😠. Please fix this immediately as I would like to have a working Skype account. Thank you.
Notification badge icon stuck 1/5
The notification badge icon stuck at '1'. It is indicating that I have some sort of message, even though I don't. This is only an issue with the new, messed up Skype that Microsoft has so graciously transformed into a nightmare. On my iPad 3 I'm still running the old Skype (before the whole UI transformation nightmare began), version 22.214.171.124, which works flawlessly and doesn't display the notification badge. On my iTouch, for some reason, it stuck. Very annoying.
iPod Touch 5G / iOS 9.3.5
Dropped call 2/5
I never had a problem until I downloaded the new version. Plus the call was not as clear.
Can I go back to the old Skype?
The sound’s perfect
The new interface is absolutely beautiful. The gestures are a bit annoying. Reminds me too much of Snapchat.
Very bad 1/5
طريقة الرد على المكالمة الواردة والشاشة مقفلة سيئة و يجمد الجهاز
والرد على المكالمة أثناء فتح تطبيق آخر كذلك سيئة و مربكة
جودة الاتصال تزداد سوءاً
Great app ever
Garbage, messages hang 1/5
Doesn't send or receive messages for minutes at a time. No in app feedback mechanism. Embarrassing piece of software.
Why should I use a messenger that can't even deliver messages in a consistent manner?
Typical MS crap 1/5
App fails constantly. If I'm not actively looking at the app, I can't read missed messages. I can see the persons message is there. But, it won't let me read it. Login fails and disconnects for no reason. I hate this app. But, my work forces me to use it.
The emojis 1/5
The emojis move, and I don't know why. But it's creepy as hell. And I'll simply write : ) forgetting about the creepy emojis and then when I hit send! Bam creepy emojis seriously they are freaky as hell! Why are they even on this app. As a thing. Who decided this?! Terrible terrible!
Two stars as calls still work decently but... 2/5
This new UI is ridiculously full of junk. Not at all a fan. I want to uninstall but unfortunately quite a few of my contacts still prefer to use Skype.
Fire the team, bring back the old 1/5
It doesn't look like Skype cares about user feedback their “developer response” just points to fixes from what they broke a couple months back when they forced their terrible updates. (note: continuing to lipstick the pig isn't making it any better)... for those looking for something else, try these other options: WhatsApp, Viber (works well), FaceTime (only Apple), Google (pretty decent and works on all platforms). Guessing those 5-star reviews are coming from within Microsoft - we're not fooled.
STILL many things broken, app crashes, doesn't meet basic use cases, and targeted for the wrong audience, can't tell who's online and just not active at this moment. The UI is just plain bad emphasizing features like "highlights" and "capture" - dumb social networking garbage that other apps have already a captive audience. After 4+ terrible updates, you're losing your most loyal user's trust and pushing people to find other products.
When will Microsoft fire this team?
Between the UI, Product, Development, and QA teams, they've dropped the ball!
Bad , horrible Skype . You had one job 1/5
Can someone tell me why cant I initiate calls ? Skype you had one job . We download Skype to call other human beings that are away . Why can't I call in Skype ? You developers had really one job and you managed to ruin ur medium. Fix it !!!
App feels insecure; Feel like I’m being hacked. 3/5
By Wawa~Kun :3
Hi there Skype devs. I have to say, I like Skype and all, but Skype itself doesn’t feel secure. I get spam from my friends, as in their accounts send me links, etc, but they are not sending the links. They show the links they sent on my screen, but it says they haven’t sent anything on their screens. I called one of my friends, and he “answered”, even though I later learned he was on another story of the house, cooking. I got very creepy, satanic noises as an answer. I heard screams, cries, pleads, all creepy. The call ended after a minuet. My friend called me back 10–15 minuets later, and swore to god he was as confused and freaked out as I was. We both feel insecure using Skype now, like we are getting hacked, or watched, etc. Please, look into this matter for our safety, privacy, and just to ensure us overall.
Doesn't Even Open 1/5
Come on Microsoft! Opened the app. Signed in to my Microsoft account and hit next. Didn't even finish opening. Screen is still just blue a day later. The app doesn't even open. Microsoft, please fix this bug!
Not bad 4/5
I usually end up trying just about every conferencing application that comes along. Skype is The one I keep coming back to. Some of the recent Features I could do without And only having a few conversation colorThemes to choose from kind of stinks. It would be nice to have some type of RGB color picker. Also individual volume controls for participants in a conference would be sweet. Keep up the good work, our online gaming group and my business both fine Skype to be a reliable product.
Ужасное приложение. 1/5
Почему на телефоне нет чатов, которые есть га компьютере????
An GUI geared for children 1/5
By Nicks stuff
This looks like you had junior high school kids design the interface for Skype! The old interface was much more user-friendly and intuitive … Different doesn’t mean better! Also, since using a different app for voice and texting, I think Skype has mediocre voice and texting performance.
Horrific design and less usable than ever before 1/5
UPDATE: Now I cannot see when they were last online without tapping on their name in the conversation. You made it worse.
The design for this app is awful and lacks reason or strategy. Please hire a UX person because this app is full of pain points for user experience. 0 stars.
Is my contact online or offline? Who knows until I have to tap their name to open some poorly designed tabular interface.
This is the epitome of crappy Microsoft design. Please revert the UI back to what it was before (which barely worked anyway)
The new design is harder to use. Microsoft doesn't listen to its users (who does anymore anyway?) this app update is an embarrassment
use whatsapp or discord or literally anything instead bro 2/5
By Pickles Protection Program
this update was unnecessary and the chat is super laggy, and the whole update makes it seem tacky. i haven't used it at all since the update and will probably delete it if they don't fix it
update: ended up deleting it but still use the desktop version-- why not just make iphone skype like that, simpler and easy to use? it's not like a social media app, it would be nice just to have an easy, usable platform to message and videocall on.
Constantly cracking 1/5
It won’t let me even open the app.
Just stop trying to fix this. Revert back to the old version of skype, where the features were useful and not stupid things like "themes". It's way too complicated to add new contacts now and you've removed the option to send a contact. Moreover, you've just made it much more difficult to send pictures or videos, having us go through more taps and layers to get to the gallery or camera. It's all too flashy and "modern". What's the point of updates if it makes skype complicated and harder to use?
Is not what it was... 1/5
The past updates when the interface was changed, brought a poor and most importantly less user friendly experiences as you can possibly can imagine.
- Want to erase chat history? Forget it! you have to go chat by chat (erase/confirm erase/ok)
- Want to erase calls? Don’t even think about it!, you just can’t! (Yup)
- No sync with the desktop app! What on you undo/erase on desktop app (e.g erase history calls/chats) WON’T be erase on iPhone app (then u will be facing the previous two steps, well one because the 2nd is impossible)
Overall it has good stability on calls, video calls and less connection issues than previous versions.
Less important things like design... it will make you choose colors for your profile with very very limited options. Believe me it’s not for everyone’s taste.
Logging in invisible missing??? 4/5
I hate not being able to log invisible like it use to be. Am I missing something or is that gone?
Wish the desktop emojis were bigger they are so small.
Updates this bad arent by accident.
Either way, good luck Skype.
Where is the status feature? 1/5
Please bring back the status features for Away, do not disturb, offline. Why did this even get removed? My skype always says I am online to my colleagues even if I’m not actually in the app. This makes no sense.
Horrible New UI 1/5
By D. Coughlin
I do not understand how taking an easy to use, intuitive yet powerful interface and converting it into a hot mess of jumbled and disjointed screens, jettisoning key features and requiring many more steps to accomplish tasks is an improvement. The ONLY thing that keeps me from deleting this app and never using Skype again is that their competition cannot (yet) match Skype's overall video and audio quality. I'll be the first to switch to another service if the developers don't admit this social experiment a failure and go back to having tools help do work rather than creating more work.
Not working anymore!!! 1/5
I am unable to make calls now. I uninstalled and installed the app again to see if issue becomes resolved but not I cannot even log in. I pay Skype $70 every 3 months for a long distance flat rate subscription and it is totally unfair that they do this. I am very dissatisfied looking for other options similar to Skype but that actually work
It’s not working 1/5
By fix skype pls
I love Skype but it currently won’t let me connect. I restarted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled it and now it won’t even let me log in. My brother has android and it’s not working for him either so pls fix it.
