Skype for iPhone Reviews


Remarkably stable and clear. Very grateful  dsdsdsdffrr  5 star

Remarkably stable and clear. Very grateful


Perfect backup for communicating  seamo_11  5 star

I’ve used this app for years around the world being in the military and it has always taken care of me. The ability to get a U.S. number has provided endless flexibility for two-way communication. In addition, being able to call landlines, cellphones, and having text capabilities from anywhere in the world has been invaluable. Although, there are many other apps on the market with similar capabilities, Skype has always been one that I have kept installed for piece of mind.


Perfect and always getting better  rparksatty  5 star

There is a reason they are number one


Same lousy program  Pdx_biker9  2 star

Ever since Microsoft bought Skype all intelligent development to it stopped. I used it again after a couple years off and again the interface made no sense whatsoever -extremely hard to just simply dial a phone number without entering it in your contacts. It wouldn’t put in the right country code easily and it wouldn’t show my credit - it gave me misleading information that I needed to buy more credit but i found it remembered part of the Skype credit I have left before.


My Review  Mblu202  5 star

Great for calling and texting friends!


Use it all the time  Leia64  5 star

I used this app all the time while my boyfriend was deployed. It worked very well for the long distance calls. We both had WiFi and very rarely did I have a call drop or freeze, it also works well on data. Overall very good for video, audio, and messaging, and has a beautiful layout.


FIX.  laya.  2 star

OMG. this is so frustrating at this point. skype was such a comfortable app that I have been using on desktop and phone. Desktop is fine, but suddenly on mobile (maybe 2 months ago), every time I switch apps after having turned my camera on during call, the camera will come on temporarily when I come back to the app and shut off after about 8seconds. The only solution is ending the call and starting again. This is so inconvenient and if the other party is sleeping or away from the phone they can’t even pick up the call. I wish this problem would be fixed. I wish all of these apps would realize when they’re ahead and just stop changing everything. Skype is plenty comfortable the way it is, and with every update it’s becoming less and less convenient. Please fix this problem.

Bugs you with notification ads when you buy Skype Credit  Borpsaws  1 star

After getting Skype Credit as part of an Office 365 subscription, I started getting multiple intrusive push notification ads bugging me to use my Skype Credit. This is a violation of my trust - I allowed Skype to have notification access because I wanted to stay in touch with family and friends, not because I wanted to have my time disrespected by unwanted ads. Unfortunately, I ended up disabling all notifications for Skype as a result, completing my migration away from it for all my instant messaging needs. I hope someone from the product team at Microsoft reads this review and takes it seriously, and removes this unwanted intrusion before future customers are also driven away by it.


NO NOTIFICATIONS  SkypeUser678  2 star

Always used Skype to message people, but the one main issue is I never get any notifications when they send me messages. Please fix.


Skype is good but bad  LittleRainbows  2 star

Ok let’s start with the bad stuff so we can just rip it off like a Bandaid, Things You NEED to fix 1. Lagging when talking to people 2. Glitches 3. Connection errors are SUPER annoying 4. Pausing in the video chats 5. It’s boring just sitting and looking at a screen with someone either frozen or no camera at all! Things that are good ?????? Things to improve Skype 1. Games to play with friends will chatting 2. Try to be better than House Party(copy something’s on House Party because it’s better than Skype now) 3. Add more effects or things 4. Change the app picture to something cool 5. Put adds up and pay out House Party and things like that Kind Regards Unknown


Skype went soft  Dimitri2011  2 star

Used to love this app and the service it provided. Now it feels like an add on, clunky to use and not a natural fit with iPhone. Need to change password every time I log in which then disrupts password on windows. 🤯🤯


Doesn't respect Do Not Disturb  GroomedMonkey  1 star

Still doesn't respect Do Not Disturb settings so I am constantly woken up at horrible times when traveling to different timezones by this hot mess of an app.


Skype Review  fishmuncher0101  5 star

Been using this for a while now, only doesn’t work on my part when I’m at a place with no connection or hardly any. Other than that Skype works just as well as any other Viber, Whatsapp, etc. maybe even better.

Fix the bug(s)  DS Wick  1 star

I loved Skype and been using it for as long as remember. But recently the app doesn’t allow us to end calls. The screen becomes unresponsive, and only way to end calls is by removing the Skype task from iOS. Please fix this issue, it’s become unusable now.


Pressing numbers during calls doesn’t work  pharmlover  1 star

Using the dialpad to press numbers during the call (i.e. to select menus during a phone call) doesn’t currently work!


Been using Skype for decades...  products  5 star

Been using Skype for decades, it’s the mainstay of the net. I use Skype credit to call friends who only have mobiles in the UK from Australia (if only these folk left Skype running on their phones it’d be free calls and I always forget to say turn Skype on and I’ll call you back, oh well!) I recon it’s cheaper using Skype credit from Australia to a UK mobile than it is calling mobile to mobile across networks within the UK its self! Verify your own mobile number into your Skype profile with your international prefix +61 or +44 etc then dropping the 0 from the start of your home or mobile number, after verification remember to tick send my caller ID then you mates will know it’s you calling or contact you back on your regular phone. I still haven’t got over Microsoft buying up Skype but they seem to have now slowed down on anymore dumb changes, let’s keep it that way... And while I’m in the mood for a rant ‘No more’ interfering Microsoft pop up suggestions within Skype would be nice, I open Skype to use Skype and nothing else, so stop being annoying Microsoft, we were here before you...

Skype phone  Psalm 37:29  5 star

I used Skype as a payed phone service, but it made me pay for both outgoing calls and incoming calls. So I don’t use it. Skype works well as a free internet phone service. I use it above any other internet phone service. At times other services work better. Depending on internet traffic, weather, mobile signal strength etc.


Why can’t I customize?  Surferles  4 star

Can’t customize theme. Can’t turn off the crappy emoticons. What the hell? Oh, I see. It’s a Microsoft company. That explains all


Beyond impossible to cancel  tabatl  1 star

Any app that makes it difficult to cancel and does not offer support should not be allowed on the apple store. I will never use Skype again.


Login method is not good.  justme15  1 star

Microsoft and Skype have an issue with login credentials. The app says ‘you do not have an account’. Next screen says ‘you have an account using this same email, thus cannot log in with this email’. I’ve gone in circles over and over again. Id rather not use it if it’s going to be this difficult.


Excellent  ajseymour  5 star

Excellent app, works very well now


FYI, It cost $ to download the app  RightTriangleZ  5 star

FYI, It cost $ to download the app. “An online, phone or mail order charge of $1.38 has been authorized at APL* ITUNES.COM/BILL on...” Enjoy.


iPhone Version Good Again  bparker86  5 star

Skype on the iPhone was great, became terrible, but now useful again. Very pleased again. Most of my calls are to cell phones and landline phones to different countries, few of them with Skype accounts. The current version of Skype makes it easy (again) to make those calls, using my own phone address book (as opposed to Skype account contacts). Thank you!

You see I’m one of those people who live to face time but my friends and family don’t all have the IPhone so we all use this and it’s helpful

Good internet connection it’s all you need, then seat back relax and enjoy Skype


Skype is the best  Alexjhynes17  5 star

I love Skype. It is the real OG calling service it’s so easy and the calling is amazing but if you forget your password it’s super annoying to go through Microsoft sh** like you have to have 8 characters and one number/other thing


Eats battery life  ScobyObrien007  1 star

This is by far the worst app I have for eating into my batter life. Would get 4 stars otherwise.

I love Skype!  Dr Yvonne (chiro!)  5 star

Have used Skype for many years and it continues to serve me very well from different continents around the world. I give DIVINECLEARING healing sessions and Skype never lets me down. Big thankyou


Skype Call  honoriomedina  5 star

Sin duda es lo mejor en llamadas a través de IP. Totalmente recomendable, no hay retraso en la conversación, súper rápida la conexión, estabilidad inmejorable, etc 100 % recomendada


I can’t love or live without Skype  spotonjj  4 star

My life would be boring without Skype. Without Skype I would have no long video chats with friends and family. And all the new add ons and improvements greatly add to it ‘s usefulness!


No longer supports iOS 9  Fly_ua  2 star

Prompts to update to latest version, but this is not possible on iOS 9.x or earlier.


Skype update  Anthonykelly2014  1 star

What is up with your update on Skype 8.38 I have updated it So many times and once you refresh the app it in App Store update for apps on my iPhone it is always saying update it’s definitely not a problem with my iPhone is your app I have uninstalled reinstalled and it’s the same problem no matter what you do do you actually read the feedback like you say you’s do because if you’s did you’s would have fixed this issue all ready


Update fails  irelandpoet  5 star

Skype update to 8.38 not working on iPhone X... appears to have updated successfully but update shows again on refresh... please fix or explain what is wrong.


Lock out  DubMcD  1 star

I use (or used rather) Skype for work conference calls. Then it blocked the conference number for some reason. Took days (and two complaints) to get back. Cost about €80 in phone bills. In the meantime I opened another account on my iPhone to use. I can’t get into that now - ‘Something went wrong’ Very frustrating.


Skype for iPhone Is seamlessly integrated  Paul_Richardson  5 star

I’ve been using Skype for over a decade and it’s current implementation is seamlessly integrated with iOS. Call logs and use of Bluetooth devices are two examples where you don’t have to worry about it being a third party app.
