    Mostly functional, though it never resumes properly. You'll have to restart the app if you want to use it.

    When you can sign in, and be available to take and make calls, its great. Except that is unbelievably rare, so this version of Skype is ****. Update it

    Garbage. Cannot login

    It's no wonder there's a huge market for messenger apps with quality like this. Especially disappointing considering Skype is a MS subsidiary. This app should be the star that brings people to WP, but instead it is slow, power hungry, glitchy, and an irritatingly impotent way to use Skype.
