    Impossible to close calls win8.1 phone, screen turns off on touch due to convenience function which thinks tap is face. Please fix and resubmit for more stars. App itself is nice

    Still no file sending, no paysage mode, takes a hell of time to load up (i have a Samsung TxT 800mhz single core on Android and it takes less time to load up than on m'y 520), notifications are random as much on Wi-Fi or 3G. Why Microsoft? Why YOUR app is better on other OS than tours? There's no logic at all, updates bring only new designs and lags.

    - Notifications work most of the time. - Small text can be hard to read. - Inconsistent text sizes. - Everything is squished to the sides, its "compact" design looks awkward. - No quoting.

    Sign in with your Microsoft account, sign-up if you don't have it that's all you need.

    With the last update notifications rarely work, leaving you missing a lot of messages!!!!! This is something that needs to be addressed! However the addition of some things such as being able to log in with a Skype account again and being able to delete a conversation are welcome.

    This app needs some love.

    Inconsistent, amateur interface breaks nearly every Windows Phone design convention. Does not support light & dark themes. Tile background does not use phone accent colour. I expected more of Microsoft.
