6/20/2013Works fine but big minus for lack of sign out option...
6/20/2013Completely sucks... The quality suck... Skype has sooo many problems and the sad part is that its the only thing that Microsoft had to offer.. I regret getting the Windows phone
6/19/2013No notification from the lock screen, and no sending files features.
6/19/2013The problem with skype is file transfers don't exist as of yet. Skype for iphone and android rock, but for windows8 you can do video and calling. I have a skype out number and when someone calls me on my win8 phone lumia 920 it goes to voicemail. it is always stuck in resuming mode. Micro$oft needs to have these apps work in the background smoothly. I think if they have the top 5-7 apps that a user can define to run in the background would be better. i.e email / whatsapp/ viber / tango / line /wechat, all of the messaging apps need to run in the background along with skype. my 2cents worth. I use my lumia 920 without a sim card, i let it talk to my myfi unit so where ever i am it works really good it's a bitter better on battery life too for all day talking from skype.
6/19/2013Works very well when app is launched-- making and receiving calls. Had big problems with Skype notifications until I uninstalled it (and Lync), rebooted the pho e, then reinstalled Skype (followed by Lync)-- now I can receive calls/messages without having to start Skype first. Wish it would resume faster.
6/19/2013Good app, but would be much more user friendly if it had the landscape view, it is much easier to type that way
