Client Review

Alex Kuepper

Overall very well thought out interface and easy to use but a few serious fallbacks with the software. Occasionally video/audio toggle buttons do not work and I can't see myself during video calls. The app also causes my phone to get extremely hot.


In next update, please add ability to see whether a person read the txt or now. I only know their last login, but don't know which txt was read. Please also add ability to change font size, my aging mother can't read my texts. Loading messages is taking longer. This needs a fix! Lowering my rating.

Works on HTC Desire/froyo. Some small issue, but usable. Good luck Galaxy S owners! - update: after several years this app does not make anything more than other apps. Since MS bought Skype the usability went down and zero innovation. The p2p communication was killed as well. Uninstalled. Bye-bye

The best calling experience for me. But the application is bulky and runs slow. Developers put in a lot of functions i am not sure many people use, but thigs like transfer the call to another devise, split screen support and many others are missing. I would prefer an application with much less colos and chat functions, but the same call quality and stable connection, whih will start fast and run without consuming this much resources.
