I have been a skype user since there were just 30,000 users on the system. A long time. I have enjoyed many good years and hundreds of hours with friends and relatives all over the world.
On the strength of this I created a Business account, added my credit card details, added work colleagues, never really benefitted from group screen sharing because it never worked and it turned out to be an expensive console to add or remove members.
I have tried to cancel the subscription on my credit card, but it has not been possible because it tells me I should transfer credits to a user before I can do this. There is no way to do this because the web page for months has given me a system error. Today I received another subscription payment notification with my credit card statement...just to add further insult to injury! It's not even possible to delete an account. What's that all about? Even Facebook deletes photos now!
Skype customer services hides behind pages of inter-linked information that goes around in circles of Q&A pages and when I have been able to find a mail address to write to I don't get an answer.
Very disappointing. Now I use Viber.
The service is great - super useful. However, the software needs a lot of work.
The settings are difficult to use and are not organised logically.
The default sounds Skype ships with are horrible.
Screen sharing now costs money? I understand that they need to make money - but I feel like I may need to look for a new alternative.
Thanks to Skype I can now see my grand daughters from across the country! This is great because getting most young kids on the phone for longer than a minute is hard. Give them video of themselves and me to star at and make funny faces helps keep their attention. Great product especially for free!
I am in love with Skype I can chat for hours on end with people around the globe. Its absolutely fabulous! Even though if you want to make a call you have to pay how cares its cheap and easy to do. Some people would prefer not paying so you can still chat if you have a webcam you can make a video call.
skype team is from one mother,,,, they are efficient and always ready to assist. i am always glad to use skype servives, they act immediately when technology does not measure up and always make sure you have a good experience on skype. bravo bravo skype
My grand children don't live close enough to me so Skype is my answer to having tea parties on screen with grand kids and there dolls/bears and who ever else is invited including bringing in other family on same chat, it is so brilliant as a family we have all sat chatting, watching the kids at play whilst drinking tea/coffee. I can think of nothing better apart from living next door to my family.
I have tried almost all applications to create albums for the Web. Compared with JAlbum some are easier to use but it is profitable to devote two or three sessions to learn JAlbum thoroughly, then he discovers powerful options and practical features not found in more expensive commercial programs. I am very satisfied with the purchase although I have not experienced the sale of pictures and videos through PayPal, one of the distinctive possibilities of JAlbum. Very good!
This is the best site that has proven extra-ordinary from it's counterparts. Glad to see that Facebook has the integration of Skype. So far, I never had any issues in using this product. Even downloading it from it's native site was no big deal. Am still a regular user of this product and I wholeheartedly recommend this product to all, because all the services including the customer service, is carried out so nicely by the corporate.
The phrase 'At least we're not paying for this' is often used in my Skype conversations, which is definitely true. If I had to pay for a shoddy video and distorted sound I would be royally pissed off. Thankfully I don't. But the reason I use Skype, apart from it being free, is that I am travelling. I must state that one reason for my terrible phone conversations could have something to do with the hostel's wi-fi connection, but half the time such an excuse is not valid. But it does the job (except when the call unexpectedly drops) and hey, at least I'm not paying for it.
great for video linking all over the world to chat in video
There is nothing better so far for VOIP that I know of!
It's clear (almost CD quality with the right mics) and nearly always faultless.
The webcam, group call and IM features are great also!
Not to mention it's available on nearly all smart phone platforms for free WiFi calls abroad :)
Keep up the good work guys!
well skype could deffo be better,the quality is not always the best and sync is sometimes out,on the other hand it is the cheapest way to contact your friends around the world and it is free to call skype to skype which is excellent!
good program to download if you have family to far away and you just want to chat!
I use Skype on my iPad and have found really useful when I'm travelling and with more and more businesses using it, it's become an accepted means of communicating in business. There have been one or two glitches for me with SMS messaging where messages have been delayed by a number of days, but no evidence of a delay at my end. But this is an isolated incident. Overall, it's invaluable.
