    I can't figure out how to see my friends looking at the screen. Isn't there a button to press for a front camera using Skype plus see my friends. Mrs Neff

    Why can't I just send pics normally without all the hassle? I can't even receive any pics, this is 2014! Picture sharing is one of the most simple things and something like Skype for WP doesn't support this feature. Just ridiculous

    Using Nokia 920 - here are my comments in order of importance: 1) can't delete history 2) takes too long to resume about 5 to 6 secs 3) can't remove someone from RECENT unless I first remove them from FAVORITES - quite annoying 4) unappealing and outdated UI
