great but there’s a problem 5/5
Almost every time I call someone it never says ringing it’s really frustrating
I had Skype for many years. I notice that when my battery get low on my phone quickly while on Skype that switching to my iPad helps to extend the time. I also get better connection and do a group visual chat that you can’ t do on Facebook.
Never fails 5/5
Best app ever made!
Fine but if your underage.... 4/5
I got it but if your not an adult you have to have and adults permission and all this stuff about making sure your an adult and takes a THREE DAY PROCESS.
Crashes on my brand-new iPad and does not load.
Thank You Skype! 5/5
Now I can call any of my family members and my friends! I love this app! This deserves a 5 star from me!
Great for long distance communications 4/5
I use Skype to talk to my students overseas. It is usually very reliable, only occasionally glitchy. I do wish I could do a split screen to facilitate reading or explaining things, though. I have not been able to get assistance on how to improve a teaching experience.
It keeps crashing and logging me out whenever I tap on the app
My experience is positive w/ Skype 5/5
Sound quality is very good, I enjoy to my vendors in other countries this way.

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.
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!
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.
Better than FaceTime 5/5
By Diving capers
Really important to us 5/5
When something happens to someone you love, having Skype available is really great, knowing that you can count on it working.
Keeps disconnecting 3/5
Keeps doing that over and over again fix now
Why we don’t have update for Skype in iPad anymore!?! 2/5
Why there’s is no longer update for Skype in iPad while we keep get update in iPhone !? I’m using latest version of iOS
Been a User From the Beginning 5/5
Use both free and paid services and rarely have issues. If we do it’s usually a result of the connection and not the app. ++Recommended++
Connect !!! 5/5
I have used this app to talk and see my mother every day.
She is in Brazil and I am in the US.
I have become so close to her thanks to skype.
It is a lifesaver, phenomenal really.
It works when you figure it out... each time! 2/5
It works but I could never talk a friend through using it as it changes every time I open it. I don’t think its figured out if it’s an IM, chat, calling or collaboration app yet.
Trouble with Car Mode 4/5
When you call to a car from Skype, you could barely hear the person and the person talking to you can’t hear you
By wasting my time :(
Skype for iPad is way to glitchy if I’m not as active it either logs me out and I have to log in or if I’m not active uninstalls it bye it’s self it’s constantly being annoying and honestly Skype says there constantly trying to fix the glitches here and there but there not Skype for me is still the same design since 2015! Can you please try to fix this and not make a weird excuse or say you are constantly working on it cause we all know that your acting like it’s a project from 1 grade and you still haven’t turned it in !
I can’t waste my precious time and battery just on you guys being LAZY I’m very very very (ten more verys to go ) DISAPOINTED AND ANNOYED 😡🤦🏾♀️
We all know that the App Store ratings is falsified. 2/5
Most people are very unhappy with the terrible user interface of this app, yet the ratings falsely show a over whelming majority loving it.
Tested to see if calls get through to me or if I can make calls.
The last 4 attempts failed. Neither calls going out or coming in worked.
Texting rates is a outrageous joke. And considering Microsoft isn’t even providing the internet for the texting its outrageously unreasonable.
Nice and easy program 4/5
Skype is real easy to use and track all your msgs, I recommend it to all ages.
Everything worked but audio. 2/5
I could not receive audio from them, they however could hear me. Tried disconnecting and reconnecting several times resulted in using phone for conversation and Skype for video. Unacceptable!
What happened Skype? 3/5
By Oni Bait
I used to have an amazing time with Skype, but that changed. I can not Skype me friend, because when we called each other, it didn’t say that on the other side. So, I want to have my experience go back to how it used to be please
If I could give it zero stars, I would. 1/5
By shirtless tallguy
Used Skype for years. I hate it now. Getting deleted from my phone, iPad, and PC. Nice job Microsoft.
Been using Skype for a long time. Use it to call foreign countries for inexpensively calling when I need to use there landlines. Also computer to computer for free. Great service.
It’s a great think.
Great app! 5/5
Never had any major problems! Voice quality is great! Video quality is great. The only glitches I ever had were with my device. The best part is that we can have group calls!!!
Good voice quality 5/5
Has been very reliable calling between US and U.K.
Best App for us non techies 5/5
For me this has been the best app for calling people all over the world, and I do my best to get all my family and friends to use it and so far our contact list has grown, So thanks for all your hard work to keep this app working for all of us
Great improvement 5/5
By clare, mammana
I have traveled to the Mediterranean to teach traditional midwifery and reconnect to my roots. Skype calling has greatly improved over the many many years i have been coming here. Calls are clear even in windy storms..voices are clear and keeping connection with my home half way across the world makes traveling easier. I have been coming here for 25 years and can’t remember when Skype started but used it when it did. Appreciate it.
Works for me 5/5
By Sir Goat of a Goat clan
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.
Skype is great 5/5
Just get it. It's awesome!
No good on Air 2 1/5
By howie dub
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.
we need updates for ipad msft！ 1/5
NO updates for 11mo，are you kidding us？
windows got semi annual release，but skype do nothing for almost one year，very disappointing！
Best video communication - bar none 5/5
Except for some countries barring Skype until you buy a VPN, Skype is awesome. Great video. Great audio. Simple to use.
Very good one. 5/5
Have been used Skype for many years to make international calls.The quality is very good.
This app needs to be updated and refreshed 1/5
It’s been 11 months since this app was updated for the iPad while the iPhone app receives its share of updates the iPad version does not please fix this now.
Ten year user 2/5
It just seems to be getting worse and worse to me. My complaint is the most common one which is the user interface. Lately I've learned a few new things like entering a new contact which to me should be our most intuitive.
Thank You!😀 5/5
Love this app...use this when in Mexico and in California. Hubby hates phones so he relies on this for calls when he can't use messenger. Thank you Skype!
Love this app 5/5
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.
By Maria Taraboulos
Great app I always recommend to everybody, I travel a lot and that is how I communicate with everyone.
Make sure you up your credit before you travel because I was far away from home once and the credit card I had on file recognized I was not at my home country and blocked my purchase at the Skype app.
Great service great and clear calls
Good service 5/5
Been using Skype for years. If the WiFi connection is good the service is good.
Good app but needs more... 3/5
Skype does a good job at what is was made for, calling people (either voice or video), but, I really want/need to change my username because it’s childish (it was made a long time ago). PLEASE let people change their usernames!!!
Skype makes it possible... 3/5
By Gramma Kricket
When you’ve got a Smart phone, the best app to get is Skype! It keeps kids visually-connected to their friends, parents, AND (more importantly!} their grandparents! Closest thing to being there! ❤️❤️❤️
Call to Budapest. 5/5
Called Budapest and was disconnected twice and ended paying $10.00. This nev r happened to me before.
Complete crap 1/5
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.
Workable phone alternative 5/5
We have good service with Skype from Mexico worldwide as long as the internet connection is fast enough. A slow connection lags and may not work. Convenient and cheap we use it often.
