Ratings and Reviews
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.
Skype Contacts online?
4 stars it’s really good it has many features and I love the mojis as well. It’s amazing during quarantine where I can just talk with my friends and my family. Also it’s nice as you can add people while your calling (unlike FaceTime) and I think MOST of the time you won’t have a problem......
The reason I gave this app 4 stars is because it’s sometimes a little bit hard to hear what the other person/people are/is saying. Also it’s a little bit slow, mainly when you turn the camera.
Now to my main, usually Skype have colours when your friends are online, been online recently, or off. (Like WhatsApp has last seen and online and messages do not) but it said green so I text my friend, and then I called her, it’s still showing green, and then she texts me “can’t call I’m painting and I’m right in the middle of doing it” I ask her if she’s been online while she’s been doing it and she says no. Then again it’s only happens about 3 4 times but I’ve only had it for a 2 months. Please fix this thanks!!!
I think Skype is a really good app but when I want to chat with my friends I can sometimes glitch out of calls and sometimes the emojis are limited also sometimes it gets confusing when it says this person was seen 21 minutes ago but they messaged me 2 minutes ago I’m not sure why this is happening but it can get very confusing. Also sometimes when I try to send pictures they turn out white and don’t send. Also once you have sent a message to someone it shows the profile picture but when I am on calls with my friends they say that they never saw the message. I would also like to say that sometimes it tags out what I want to say and the predictive text is so annoying I try to send a simple message to my friend but then it says something completely different. Over all I think that Skype is a very good app and the safety rules for kids are amazing all I think is that there need to be a couple of changes. Thank you for reading my review.
