5/20/2013One of the best Skype I've ever used till date in smart phones.. Thank you guys
5/20/2013Slow to start or resume. Features available elsewhere(platform) are missing. Can't see if there's any integration to the phone/OS. Microsoft have so much chance to make Skype a great APP and compete with other IM APPs out there, but it is no where near to where it should be. Considered this is on WP8 means the issues should have solved by yesterday.Microsoft have lots of catch-up to do. Review by: idotcucu on HTC 8S

5/19/2013Need notifying sound of incoming messages and be able to work in the background! Just need and it's perfect! NEEDS AN UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!
5/19/2013Tired this app for the first time yesterday. Works ok. At first I tried to connect with my fiancé on her I phone, I could see her fine but she couldn't see me, only hear me. After numerous attempts, she finally used her laptop at which point it worked fine. Not sure if its a windows phone/iPhone compatibility issue or what but it needs to be fixed.
