    Since 8.1 update, screen flips out and crashes as it starts up. USELESS.

    The app is okay, takes long to update messages and the live tile isn't always accurate. Also no transparent tile. Needs an urgent update!

    I am slowly learning more and more about Skype on WP8.1. My opinion has warmed as I have discovered more and more what it can do, although that journey of discovery has not always been easy - it's not always the most intuitive program to finely tune. However, all things considered, this is a valuable app and is well integrated into the phone's OS.

    A horrible, phone-crashing, battery sapping mess that just doesn't work, even on a high end phone (Lumia 925). Are you trying to lose users? I'd suggest integrating with People and so on, but please concentrate on getting it working first.

    Skype won't even open or let me delete it! It never showed me messages, only ones months old. My kindle fire works perfectly well even with updates and very little interent. Sorry but it hasn't worked very well at all! :(
