Skype Communications S.a.r.l
Skype for iPad
Skype for iPad review
Skype is probably the most famous platform for online text, calls, and video letting you and your friends, family, and loved ones share in a rich, connective experience from anywhere in the world. With the mobile version of the app, you can bring the experience even closer and maximize convenience. Skype is great for free calls to other users and provides inexpensive cross-border calls to landlines and mobile.
Skype offers you comprehensive features and allows you to:
- Engage in video calls either one-on-one or with a group of people (up to 25)
- Call other Skype users free of charge.
- Call mobiles and landlines at lower rates.
- Share photos, videos, emojis, and your location in chats.
- Sync all your communications across multiple devices and platforms.
- iMessage instantly and group chats with up to 300 people.
The latest version will sync all your notifications with your Apple Watch.
The new Skype has a jumbled up UI. Getting to some of the options such as minimizing a call screen proved difficult on the first few attempts. The chat system has been terrible since the last upgrade, and the dialer interface is causing considerable problems for users who need to make calls. Latency has always been a problem with audio on Skype. The lag on this app is terrible, and the UI is borderline unusable. The video quality has always been commendable, even on the mobile version.
This app version is only optimized for iOS 8.0 or later on iPad.
This app has become increasingly unreliable, and even basic notifications don’t seem to work anymore. The UI for Skype has always been unique in my view, but recent updates have completely changed this for the worse. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend it.
