I live quite far away from my family so Skype is great for keeping in touch! It's great to let the family see how the little one is growing up too, until we can visit next. And it's free - what more do you want?!
Skype would have got 5 stars, but the video likes to freeze up and calls get dropped, but what can u do when it's free and ur talking to people in different counties. I <3 skype and can't thank them enough it made his 12 month deployment easier on both of us. We skyped everyday several times per day!!!!! THX SKYPE!!!!!!!!!!!
Jeg har brugt skype i mange år. Det er super tjeneste, der er gratis.
Men når man installere sin klient, er standart opstillingen rigtigt ringe.. Den ændre mine lyd instillinger i Windows plus at mine genvejstaster bliver ikke gemt på kontoen ^^ Det er nok det der er det største problem her. At kontoen ikke gemmer de instillinger man har i programmet. Den kan se hvem man er.. men det er det :-(
Det der telefon konference er helt vildt dårligt! Man kan ikke se hvem der er superbruger og har styringen af konferencen :-(
I kan lære noget af google på de to punkter!
Jeg anbefaler Skype! Hvis man ikke kan bruge google, mumble eller teamspeak. I er ved at blive overhælet, kom i gang!
I Skype with my son in California (I live in England) and it's great when it works, but sometimes we have problems. Mostly, though, it's amazing to see my son and his family every week and we really enjoy our time on Skype.
I like Skype - and it works well enough. However, the idea that my credits expired over time (a few years ago) is something I cannot tolerate. We give money to them in advance - which means they have our money for a time without having to provide a service, then they tell us that we have to use them within a certain time period of they will confiscate the credits. This is very poorly thought out approach since it alienates the customer for good. It is like insult added to injury.
If this policy were not in place, I would still be a spending customer with Skype. The net profit for Skype with me would have been in the positive. I'm afraid that this is a poor decision made by management that will cost Skype in the end.
Me & my partner communicate using Skype all the time, either through the laptops or iPhones because we are currently living in different countries and in a long distance relationship. It is a great, free way to stay in touch and it makes it slightly easier been so far away from each other for long periods of time! I know dont know what we would do without Skype!
I really do like skype. It's made connection to people in other areas, and countries so much easier. And it's FREE! What more can you want? PLUS, you get to see the other people. They're a little problems, such a connection and clarity, but that's minor when you consider all the good factors.
When I am traveling around the world and need to call to airlines, credit card companies, financial companies, or businesses back in the US I use SKYPE to make those calls free. I even use them at home instead of my cell phone for those long waits for 1-800 service.
Also, calls home are very cheap and easy to make from a good wifi connection with my iPad compared to using an international phone card from public phones. I don't use the video feature very much, just the audio and most calls come through better than my ATT cell phone unless the wifi is really boggy.
Living in Spain I thought it would be the best way to stay in touch with family and friends in the UK but quite often we lose contact so many times that we give up. It is seldom possible to be able to see each other and I have been really disappointed.
