    This app is lame on WP8 on Nokia Lumia. Only good thing is that it's free.

    (Video) calls are pretty unstable. Repeatedly experienced dropped video-calls after ~10/15 mins, and calls are dropping when multitasking while talking. Since my hardware is up-to-date (Lumia 930), it must be caused by flawed coding. I am using Skype mainly for calling for the are better messaging applications out there. Therefore, pretty unsatisfying overall...

    Missing features like file sharing, slow launch and resume times, major battery hog, just not really good.. Issues logging in daily.

    I installed wp8.1 and found I wasn't getting IMs in the unified message center. I installed Skype and what a huge step backwards. I don't get how you can screw up so much basic functionality. My two biggest issues are: 1. No text to speech ( unable to hear and respond to messages in my car) 2. Messages are just lost or really hard to find. I get notified I have a message and tap on the notification only I cant find the conversation thread in Skype.

    Not free anymore!!!!! All they want is money! We are a military family. This used to be how we opened Christmas presents "together", how our parents could see their grandchildren blow out birthday candles, and how we were able to see and meet new additions to our family (births, new spouses), since we only get to see our families maybe once a year (depending on what state/country we are stationed in). It is a shame that Skype has given, and then cruelly taken these special moments away from us just for a few extra bucks. Shame on you Skype.
