20/05/2013Dunno about everyone else but on lumia 900 to sign out you just get the menu up at the bottom (with the 3 dots ...) and press sign out. Everything else with this app works perfectly fine although push notifications are something that are desperately needed or to be fixed so that you dont have to keep checking Skype to see if you actually have a message.
19/05/2013How do you sign out??? There is no option :o Lumia 520
19/05/2013Pointless on the HTC Windows 8S phone as only has one camera and its on the back so video calling is out the question.
19/05/2013doesn't have any option to set the status. And cant sync with other skype platforms
19/05/2013Great, just missing a few features like file sharing and video messaging. For all those people saying they cant log on, they need to check that their network provider doesn't block VOIP on their tariff.
18/05/2013Its really smooth in functionality, could use an option to separate contacts not wished to be shared between phone and messenger.
18/05/2013Absolutely flawless app. Great job!
