Editors' Notes

From the new baby to the latest sales figures, Skype makes sharing our big news better. Anyone can start calling, texting and video-conferencing—or even dialing landlines—thanks to the intuitive design. With zillions of Skype users to connect to, it’s one of the most useful apps on our iPhone and Apple Watch.

Good app but acting up

This is a great app. It’s really easy to get in touch with all of my friends and video chat for free. I was loving this app until a couple of months ago it started to not work properly. Every time I would try to text it wouldn’t send but would just load forever. I’ve tried logging out of my account and signing back it but it still wasn’t working. I came to the conclusion that I would have to delete the app and then re-download which I am doing right now. Apart from that issue it’s a great app. I would definitely recommend.

Not intuitive

Everything is all over the place.
To get to settings I had to by trail and error figure out that I had to go to chats (why chats I dont know ? but doesn’t appear anywhere else so I have to go back there to find it if I’m in another screen) then I had to click on my profile picture to find settings at the bottom of the page.

Calls has the word calls in the middle at the top. Contacts has the word contacts at the top but chats has my profile icon at the top. Shouldn’t it make more sense to have it on all screens?
1 drop down or pop up menu available from every page is infinitely more logical and the standard on almost every app and website

Why is calls and contacts 2 seperate pages duplicated as they essentially do the same thing.
With only a few tweaks you could simplify the app to 2 pages - chats, and calls/contacts with a drop down menu of all options available on both pages.

There is probably a reason why I’ve not used Skype in a decade. But then again I’ve never understood Microsoft products. 20 steps when 1 will do seems to be their motto

Take a look at Line app. The menu at the bottom is consistent across all pages so I can easily jump to where I want

Also I can’t find easily any way to check what a call will look like before I make it. Would be good if there was a simple 1 touch preview button to make sure the image is acceptable before I place a call
