    When it works it's okay but in my experience it's poorly implemented: - they usually need to call me more than once before my phone actually rings - sometimes my video freezes and I can't get it to work again without turning the phone off. When this happens the camera works fine in its app so it looks a bug in Skype - sometimes it fails to do something and the call screen doesn't update correctly if you rotate the device - sometimes it thinks a conversation is active even if it's not and if you try to close the app you still get a bar in the top of the screen - if during a conversation you switch to another app and then go back you have to restart your video manually

    Not working appropriately

    Don t even think abt getting this app, unless you re using a microsoft account. No option to login w/ Skype name, or at least instructions abt link accounts. Major set-back.

    Appallingly written software that has actually scr*wed many existing skype windows phone users. I can no longer video call; my old contacts have disappeared. Most annoyingly, the login screen gets caught in an error loop and I have to get physical to terminate the app.

    Excellent service!

    Good but could be so much better. Text size on IM is small & difficult to read & you cannot make it larger.
