Native Elements!!! Finally!!!

This update is the biggest in years! Earlier, it seemed like the UI would load from a remote page and was remarkably slow! What’s worse, elements of the UI would have a delay in responding to input , which led to many “Did that go through or do I need to hit that button again” moments.

Now, the cold start time seems SO much faster, the clock through to historic calls are what you’d expect from a leading app developer and the response time between initiating a call and the call actually going through. . .fast!

Whoever is responsible for those speed improvements deserves a raise, a promotion, a month off with pay, another promotion and a nice ‘Thank You’ for working on improvements that have such a perceptible change in the usability of the app!

My status changes from invisible to online whenever I login

I am super annoyed with the skype status that keeps on changing itself. I choose to remain invisible and before logging out I keep the invisible mode on but the next time I log in to skype it automatically changes the status to online. Just because I have logged in to skype doesn’t mean I wanna be seen. This was never an issue when skype had only online/offline/dnd statuses. Also, if I have ignored somebody’s calls on purpose, say I received a call and was offline and the next time around when I am online (visible/invisible) and don’t wanna call that person, it sends them a notification that I am available if they might wanna call? Why??? Why are you speaking for us? Who gave you the right? These stupid features need to go away! Fix it pls!
