Keep it simple 2/5
By Halo Danesoft
I liked Skype better at the beginning. I use it to talk to family on other countries and see them with video if the internet connection is fast enough. Every time there is an update I get annoyed because you add more stuff, there is congestion congestion on my screen, confusion about features I never will use and don’t want to. It took me 10minutes to figure out how to sign out of my account!!! How about giving us a choice? For instance a basis simple version called “Just call your friends”— with no frills just a good contacts data base and a basic phone and video interface.
Unneeded improvement 2/5
I really don’t know why you guys would let the other caller know that I put myself on mute, it’s just annoying now and people complain

PS Fix It

You can’t yeet the Skype app
This is a great and dependable service. I have been using Skype for years to call family and friends between Egypt, US, and other countries at low cost and excellent connections.
Currently, it’s basically useless 1/5
I haven’t been able to receive messages on the app for 4 days now. My app has been stuck on “connecting” for this entire time despite reinstalling multiple times and updating my phone to the new iOS. I only use this phone for instant messaging and now it’s basically useless to me. It’s sad because I like Skype a lot and I’d easily give it a higher rating if it actually worked. It’s completely unacceptable that a major online communication program can be experiencing an issue like this for multiple days.
App is literally nonfunctional 1/5
If I could give 0 stars I would. The app literally does not work. Can't read messages, can send messages, pretends none of my conversations exist, can't make calls, can't do anything. How can Microsoft get away with such a piece of garbage? I missed two very important messages because skype both on iPhone and desktop are some of the worst programs I've ever seen.
From bad UI to worse UI with every update 1/5
By Al P.n.
I disabled every single notification except chat message related ones. How do I get rid of these ****ing "So-and-so is active again. Try calling now" notifications?
I love Skype but 1/5
I love Skype but recently every time me and my boyfriend video chat the camera freaks out and it’s so annoying it only goes out on my side idk just help
Skype conferencing 5/5
Just used Skype to call ASIA. My colleagues could not access the number so I called them and conferenced them in using Skype. It worked easily and clearly the whole time. All conference line features were available as well. Excellent service.
He estado usando skipe desde el primer día que apareció como red social
Es lo mejor para comunicarme en el planeta
Bad to good back to bad 2/5
When Skype first did their update it was terrible. Then they corrected all the glitches and the interface and it was good again. But now this new update I haven’t received any of my messages since!
I disappointed 1/5
By iNoori ask
I disappointed about new improvements.
What shall I do? I have an old device and I can’t buy new one, so it’s stopped update of iOS on the version 9 and the new policy of Skype don’t allowed to open the application on it. So you have to solve this problem because we can’t live without Skype
Simply the best! 5/5
Good but needs fixing 3/5
By jane..patrick jane
The app over all is not bad, thu its very laggy, and very not friendly to use, its lacking alot of features and improvements, i came from whatsapp and i started using skype on my iphone 7, i saw a very big difference,it needs at least 3G and a full bar to connect, and if you send messages while connecting it gets all messed up, when you send a message and its not sending, it should show the actual time i sent it, not the time it went thru, please fix the connection problem, it takes alot of time to connect. But over all, good enough for now.
Love this app 5/5
Getting better and better
Audio issues 3/5
Current version of Skype is stopping all audio on my phone when I open the app, which it has not done previously
won’t let me sign up 2/5
it won’t let me sign up!
professional 3 5/5
By Professional 3
It’s easy and simple to set up and a great way to video chat with others 👍🏼
Love Skype!!! 5/5
I have been using Skype for several years now when I travel out of the country. It is fabulous. As long as I have good Internet connection I’m able to talk to people crystal clear where ever I called them. If they have Skype it’s free if I’m calling a cell phone it’s a very nominal charge that you do pay upfront but well worth every penny. I’m a realtor and yet I managed to travel the world and even stay one month every year in Costa Rica and still conduct business this probably would not be possible if I did not have Skype.
Excelente servicio,gracias. 5/5
I love Skype! 5/5
Skype is the best I just don’t like how I cant choose like a picture of the ocean for my profile it has to be in my camera roll or I have to take a picture
It’s not goood or bad 4/5
So I was FaceTimeing my bff and her bff and I couldn’t hear her she was not on mute so that is why it’s bad ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Old versions are still better 1/5
By JW new customer
Older versions of the Skype app were simpler and easier to use. Ultimately, when using an app., especially for communication, ease of use and simplicity is paramount, leaving one to focus on the conversation not on trying to figure out how to use the damned app. If you want to know how to make it better, press rewind and try programming from the earlier versions.
It’s good but.. 4/5
By ehh person
I love Skype! BUT MY FRIENDS HAVE BAD INTERNET. Only calling my parents work😭
New text tones 4/5
By Djdjdjsjsjsjshzn nc
We need more Text Tones
Trash app that says my account is already being used when I literally made the email 3 months ago 1/5
I wanted a Skype account but sadly it thinks that my private gmail account which is like 4 months old and that only my friends even know about is already being used (which is not even physically possible)
It crashes on launch after update 1/5
I can’t use the app since its last update, it crashes every time
Skype Problem 1/5
App does not work for iPhone X. It opens then immediately exits.
Keeps getting worse...no call, no support 1/5
Update Skype and now can not call out from iPhone. Delete and reinstall (all your usual suspects) and same problem.
Worst part, there is no support. No way to chat or call. All roads lead to a community support forum. There, even though I am fully signed i to my account, it is forcing me to give email address for aliases. I tried two different email accounts (one yahoo, one gmail) and it tells me they are already in use try another (?!!)....so that forced be to create a bogus hotmail account out of desperation.
Finally get into the community yet the links were not what I needed and in the search the back arrow brought me to Skype, community now all gone.
I have been a paying member for years and think this might be my last subscription.
(As the iOS UI keeps getting worse with every update, it keeps making calling harder and harder.)
Keeps getting worse...no call, no support
Ok but it logs it out
Were is my old Skype 1/5
Were is my old Skype gone? I been using Skype for more than 20 years and always reported a five star communication, Skype is great! But .... recently my laptop Skype was cut off and Skype forced me to restart it .... oh no!!!! I got a new account without my contacts without my money account , well a new Skype. Fortunately I still have my old Skype account in my IPhone but I can never use my laptop again. Before when I used one or the other every text was a duplicate and that suited me fine. I tried to cancel the new laptop Skype an go to the old one without success..... please help I am destroying my eyes with using my iPhone by force .... I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TWO ACCOUNTS .... no no no no Skype please tell me what to do!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the great app
Skype is awesome 5/5
By cambrien j b
I love this app because I don’t have a phone but I wanted to connect with my friends and with Skype I can. I love Skype
Speaker not working 👎🏼 1/5
When I try to turn speaker on, the screen gets all blurry then when it comes back I try to tap it and nothing happens. So can’t use speaker on a call.
Why can’t you go back to one tap to switch between phone/speaker icon? All apps are like that, why do you have to be more complicated? Plus the thing doesn’t work! Your app is getting WORSE and WORSE every day. 😒 👎🏼
Just great 5/5
Just got off skype voice with my daughter who is in the Philippines and this skype app was awesome. First call on skype and it worked perfect. Voice clairity was perfect and no transmission delay. Half way around the world and no delay, how can that be. I really recommend skype for iPhone.
Skype periodically signs me out 2/5
What the hell? I want to decide how long I stay signed in, not you! What’s the purpose of having your app installed and expect calls and messages when you sign me out arbitrarily???
Two stars for that
Worse app I have ever seen in my life 1/5
Worse app I have ever seen in my life
SKYPE is the worst. Step up your game Bill Gates.
Unreliable, bad for the environment, mean to users. 1/5
i suggest you avoid being their customer.
Skype only supports NEW iPad’s as of March 15 2019. Have been a Skype user since the beginning, but no longer a fan. Today, without warning, the app proffered a white “blocked screen” ultimatum leading to a dead end: “Update Skype, Get it here”, which is a dead end for iPads running iOS 9.3.5.
No lead time, or warning.
Just a blank screen, with no options.
Now that is bad UX, impolite, and brutal.
Microsoft can’t have my brand loyalty or product suite recommendations at work (40 000 users), if they don’t want my business at home on my “classic”, beautiful little iPad.
Excelente aplicación para llamadas a celulares, Filis y CANTV 5/5
La promoción de 300 minutos gratis durante 1 mes para Venezuela funciona perfectamente. Puedes llamar a cualquier celular o línea fija. Excelente para los que aún no les han restablecido el acceso a Internet.
What notifications? 3/5
Push notifications are on. I don’t get them sometimes and my friend whom I use Skype to talk to, usually doesn’t get the notification when I send text. Imagine two introverts who suffer from social anxieties communicating on a regular basis then suddenly neither get notifications. Also, can there be more than one sound for things. Other than that, it’s fairly easy to use and my second choice for video chat. Only because my people use messenger.
If you have family overseas....... 5/5
This is ideal. Keeps me in contact with my family and friends who have left me all alone here in the US. Just kidding.
Bad usernames 2/5
Client wanted to use Skype - Microsoft auto created a terrible and unchangeable “live” username - back to zoom
Pretty Cool App 5/5
Pretty Cool App
less is better 5/5
wish this app had more entertainments but good tool to communicate with family or business use with less distractions
Miss my voice mail greeting. 3/5
Overall I am happy with Skype but really miss having a voice mail greeting. I use it for business and no one really knows who they are leaving a message for now.
