    Don't bother downloading it. Won't work, keeps crashing, newest problem, my phone is connected to the internet just fine, said can't sign me in, please check your internet connection. Honestly, your just better off carrying your laptop around with you every where because this app just does not work. As much as I need it too,I reinstalled 3 times, no luck.

    Skype for Android is much better. App hangs during video calls, causes phone to restart, can't move self video window during call. None of these issues occur on Android. Microsoft, don't neglect users of your own platform.

    Crashes alot when answering incoming calls. Application laggy or non responsive. The iPhone Skype app works better than the windows phone one...oddly enough

    Before all another Skype was there before all but I can't understand why still at so many options behind another: 1- still can't send voice message directly without dialing and waiting answer machine. 2-video messages take long after recording and send to reach another side completely. 3-still this for years voice messages not supported at mobile,u kidding us guy!!!! 4-files transfer not supported at mobile hell slowly at desktop. 5-why improvements like turtle when another storming. Can you hear us please.salaries is not everything Microsoft programmers and managers,u r behind another keep doing and more loyal like us will leave.

    Excellent on my Nokia 830 for voice and video calls. Better quality than a cell call by far.

    Pros: - Works well for IMs. - Notifications work as they should. - Looks pretty nice. ****: - You can't quote people. - Profile pictures are very, very low quality if you change them from the app. - No transparent tile.
