It’s great, except for this one thing.
Skype for IPad is still great, connection is easy, audio is clear etc. it’s fine, but there’s just a simple thing I would like added — I would like if there was just a simple function to like, remove some abilities from people, that only ‘admins’ (set by the creator of the chat group) and the creator can remove. Like making so that one person is unable to go around changing the name and pfp. Or to stop them from being able to remove everyone, especially the owner. It’s super annoying, and whilst creating a new chat is easy I would just like to not go thru the extra hassle.
Other than that, don’t improve anything, PLEASE, just add this and I’ll give 5 stars. I would Love It if I could stop ppl from removing me from my own chat.
Unless this is already a thing? I don’t think it is, right? Haven’t been able to find a function for it, anyways.
I have been using skype for the past 20 yrs. I first started when our grandsons were young and we could see each other so they talked normally and enjoyed showing us what they were doing. At that time, the app was only updated about once a year but now, it seems to be almost weekly. I am of the older generation and get confused when you keep changing the site. Please leave it alone unless it needs to be changed for security reasons. I use both systems, iPad and my PC and find them so different which adds to my confusion.
It's great - don't 'improve' it please!
Just reviewed the new Skype for iphone with one star, gladly the ipad version is still the old Skype that I know and love.
I am urging the developers, please PLEASE don't 'improve' this version into oblivion also!
Five stars - but only under the above condition :-)
Edit 14 July:
Unfortunately you have decided to improve the iPad version for the worse also, same as you did to the iPhone version. There is no proper contact list anymore and no on-offline status switch. People constantly try to call me via the PC telling me I appear online, but in fact I am not. Except on my Mac, I cannot switch properly to ‘offline’ any more, for my friends to see.
Shame on you for disregarding user feedback and making the once professional looking and powerful video conferencing software into a supposedly ‘modern’ Snapchat clone trying to appeal to 12 year olds.
Why do I need to ‘synchronise’ my contacts? I had a Skype list in the old Skype version that showed me perfectly who is online and who not. Not it is all a jumbled up mess that doesn’t show who really is available. Not everyone on my phone is on Skype and there is a reason for it, could you please appreciate that, thanks.
Migrating all my friends off Skype to alternatives now, urging people to contact me by other means. This has really been on a downward slope.
Sad. Very sad.
