    "Yup, won't install here either."

    May 29, 2014  |   By jandsm5321

    Version: Skype 6.16.32.105

    Pros

    None, Skype has gotten so useless lately.

    Cons

    Setup program wouldn't install Skype.

    Summary

    Skype v6.16.10? started freezing, stealing memory and crashing my computer so I had to uninstall it. Now I try to download the latest version and the setup program here doesn't work. It just gets to the point of saying "installing" but the progress bar never advances.

    "Yet another Skype update that won't install"

    May 26, 2014  |   By LesWilkins

    Version: Skype 6.16.32.105

    Pros

    None - I can't use it.

    Cons

    Yet again this update will not install - it's disappointing that this keeps happening with Skype but with no other programs that I download. There are various suggestions online to rectify this, but it shouldn't be necessary and I can't be bothered.

    Summary

    I don't use it much, so I'll stick with the previous version, and hope the next update installs correctly.

    "New Skype Windows Desktop... EXTREMELY SLOW ..."

    May 14, 2014  |   By melen001

    Version: Skype 6.14.32.104

    Pros

    It's been the "default" VOIP for Windows for ever and does perform well. Easy to use and import Facebook, Yahoo, Outlook (Hotmail) contacts. It's a free service...

    Cons

    New version Windows esktop is very slow to load and close....

    Summary

    Updated Skype to Windows Desktop version 6.16.0.105 and what a slow-poke
    this is.... it takes for ever to load and close. What have they done to
    Skype??? The previous version 6.14.104 was doing just fine, fast
    loading and closing and not even a hiccup what so ever. They really
    messed up this time. They should have left it alone. This new so called
    Desktop Version is probably written to enhance it's operation with
    Windows 8 even though it's for windows 7 also. They forgot the Wins 7
    crowd which are more than Wins 8 and just refined Skype for Wins 8. If I could get back the old Version
    6.14.104 I would get rid of this Desktop Version. Don't like it at all. It's just to SLOW...
    HEY SKYPE WHAT HAVE YOU DONE ????

    "Still very buggy!"

    May 9, 2014  |   By jandsm5321

    Version: Skype 6.14.32.104

    Pros

    Free, okay quality.

    Cons

    So full of Microsoft bloatware that it crashes frequently. Quality is still down from before Microsoft bought it.

    Summary

    At the moment I can't even get it to let me type more than three words before it freezes up. Then it just takes an entire core and runs it 100% doing nothing.

    "Laughable rubbish"

    March 20, 2014  |   By longtalker

    Version: Skype 6.14.32.104

    Pros

    Has screen sharing, but even that is now being phased out

    Cons

    Skype is an unbeliavably unstable and amateurish piece of software, given how widespread it is and how much is being invested in it. On both Windows and Android it performs execrably in terms of message delivery, offline pager-type messages and customised visibility (selective invisibility).

    Summary

    Comically bad software. Very glad Gmail now has reliable video in addition to voice chat so I can ditch Skype for good. It definitely isn't going to improve nearly enough as it should to make me reconsider using it.

    "Even my gran can use it, simple yet revolutionary."

    February 23, 2014  |   By Tinnako

    Version: Skype 6.14.32.104

    Pros

    - Very easy to use.
    - You can make it start on start up, and save your details so you rarely have to log in.

    This is worth mentioning because it has real potential in reaching people. I have managed to help multiple elderly and/or very tech illiterate relatives (who don't even really speak English) to use Skype, without problem.

    Cons

    - when the connection on either side is bad, skype can be laggy and unpleasant to use, especially until you've established all the hardware works properly.

    - if you're signing in with hotmail account, it's more likely to sign you out of your devices. And you have to click through a few times before you can sign in, which is a minus if users are not very tech literate. This is an unneccessary barrier to signing in, and hotmail users should be better integrated when it comes to signing in.

    - The diagnostic stuff is still beyond my relatives, so any simplification would no doubt increase Skype's appeal. However, it's functional and not difficult for most users. There is a lot of potential if they make it a little more user-friendly.

    Summary

    Simple to use, which makes it manageable even for users without much computer experience. If they really want to tap into the 'elderly relative' market, which would be an excellent idea, they could make it even easier to use.

    "WORST APPLICATION EVER! I'M BETTER OFF POSTING A LETTER"

    January 10, 2014  |   By elprezi91

    Version: Skype 6.11.0.102

    Pros

    Looks good...

    Cons

    Where do I start? Nothing good about this junk. I don't receive messages until maybe a few hours after they were sent. It's so difficult to answer a call. Even after i answer it it keeps ringing!! It is completely useless and frustrating. I have encountered so many problems because of it!!

    Summary

    Everything about windows 8 is garbage! So first step is remove that worthless excuse for an operating system, which makes life so much harder.
