    I know it's an OS thing, but I want what they have on Android and iOS. I want to be able to see the other person's video even if I switch apps. You have to make it work Microsoft! You own Skype, and you own Windows Phone.. Make it work, I don't care how!!

    Pathetic experience. You shouldn't have bought Skype if you can't manage it on your own platform.

    This has been getting worse.i cannot install this on my Lumia 620, neither can I launch the version already installed! It downloads 18MB and then fails installing. Skype is just getting worse by the release :(

    This is garbage. My friend can call me but my phone doesn't ring. When I call her her phone won't ring. She has an Android phone and there are more settings available on her app than my windows phone app and yet Microsoft owns Skype and windows phone. Ridiculous!

    I can't believe people don't use Skype, it's great!

    The app is good. But please more features needed. Let it be on par with the android and iOS app.

    Terrible, Microsoft can't even make an app that works fine of a company that they own?! It crashes all the time... I could program it better on my own. Poor support...
