    I really like WP but really the Skype sucks and why does MS develop or release MS Apps faster and better in IOS then WP? Because of the many users? Makes sense but if that is the case then just don't make WP anymore. MS should make MS Apps standout in WP so attract users. The Skype in WP resumes take so long. I think it should be baked into WP. Yes this is a rant.

    I would agree. MS could use Skype to take on iChat and Facetime in WP while being cross platform. But it is nowhere near as good as those Apple offerings. Skype just feels awkward and out of place on WP.

    I think Skype development is still rather independent and they are concentrating on their bigger market. Why MS doesn't throw some big resources into this I don't know. If I were in charge I would make Skype integration a top priority. Who knows, there could be legal reasons as to why this isn't happening.

    Facebook feels much more a part of WP than Skype does.

    They should be focusing on integrating Skype closer with the OS so it could function similar to Facetime, or Ichat. Baffles me why they haven't already being the software company they are.

    Agreed, better integration across all platforms would be fantastic. I sometimes feel that wp is an afterthought!!! Lol

    There're so many broken things with the Skype app.
    Why on earth cannot you upload files? Seems stupid.

    Hopefully Skype will be fixed in WP8.1.
