    Keeps crashing and won't open half the time.

    After the recent update the app starts a bit slower than before, and significantly slower when switching to it, but what's worse - I almost stopped receiving any push notifications. Resetting relevant settings does not help. Also - even when you get the notification, it does not mean you got the message. If I get notification, turn off any connectivity, then click on notification to open Skype - the message will not be there. Which means messages are downloaded twice - once as notification, second time from the app. Really, it was already almost good. It works better on my Android tablet.
