    Doesn't works on Windows phone 8.1

    It was great on WP8 but guys, WP8.1 released about a half year ago, at least do some Beta version of this app on that OS.

    Doesn't work with WiFi only. Doesn't work with less than 3 bars of service. Can't rename chat threads. Chat threads scroll to the bottom every time some enters new text so you can't read what you've missed. Call quality is terrible even with a great data connection. Generally buggy. I could go on. Overall a really poorly designed app, but if you have to use Skype you have no choice but to deal with the multitude of shortcomings.

    Please put it a Skype username login.

    Slow and takes alot of time to resume. And this is a Microsoft app, running on a Microsoft platform...

    I always see my calls later! Many bugs!!!
  • by Ygor 7/30/2014
    The app is very slow, sometimes it's impossible to call someone.

    CRASHED AGAIN!!! Why is it that an Iphone can run Skype better than a Windows Phone. Microsoft, you own Skype. Get it together. Uninstalled Again!!! Lumia 925.

    One star is just too much... Piece of ****.

    Very difficult if not impossible to use on a Nokia 1520. I cannot see the other person even though they can see and hear me fine. I can hear them fine as well. Their camera is on as they can see me and themselves perfectly. I just cannot find a way for me to see other party.
