    So how is it possible that you can zoom out the video in the android version of skype and can't do that on your own OS? please update, it shouldn't even be a hard fix. nothing more annoying than having to tell someone "hey I can only see half yout face move your phone to this position". Edit: still two stars, fix hasn't been implemented for the auto-zoomed video and there is no clear tile yet for wp8.1 either. Also still can't move my own face cam out of the way. This has been out for A LONG time. Why is it so bad and limited on WP I have no clue.

    Wanted to like it but doesnt update messages punctually. Sometimes several hours later I still hadnt received messages people sent me. Other times will hang up on a message I am trying to send. Also, the interface needs an overhaul, its too "cartoony" looking. Almost like its designed to market to tweens...

    Absolutely disgusting. Infernal lag, usability issues, lag, lag, lag. Unwanted updates and the real problems are left untoutched. The ownership of Skype just makes the situation even more bizarre. If I were in control of the dev team, I would fire every single one of them and begin again with a better team.
