    Significant improvements over the last couple of updates. Now allows me to login to my other Skype accounts without crashing. The addition of being able to dial Freephone numbers from the UK and US, as well as touchtone sounds makes it a lot easier to use for most calls I want to make. Now, all you have to do is make the same changes to Windows 8 and we are rocking. Works fine on WiFi, bit dodgy on Cellular data but then that's the UK ****** coverage for you.

    Latest update loads instantly, result!

    At last, Skype &or MSFT login. Now has Notification centre connection as well. Draw feature is a novelty. Sadly still takes 6-7 secs to load so no quicker than previous version. Many vid calls are dropped but this is the same on PC version as well.

    Very good

    No system integrations!!??? E.g. Photo sharing integrations? Camera lens integration? Drawing photo edit integration? Cortana integration in the UK?

    After the latest update, resuming seems near-instant, plus now being able to send drawings and pictures, along with all the other features makes this one of the best messaging apps.
