Review @ Popsilla

Skype is a free instant messaging application that makes the communication more convenient and interesting. It supports video chat, voice meeting, text chat, file transfer, and other communication functions, which greatly satisfy users' different needs and using habits.

Users can start an audio conversation or make a domestic call or an international one to their contacts, whatever fixed-line telephone, mobile phone, or Little Smart used by another side, it is all suitable for Skype to call it directly.

What's more, it is available to send a message or to realize calling transfer with Skype. As a global free instant messaging app, it possesses 663 million registered members. According to the research conducted by TeleGeography in 2010, Skype has been used by 37% users as a commercial tool and more than 15% iPhone and iPod touch users have downloaded it.

Skype was bought by Microsoft and became one of its separate department in November 2011, and in March 2013, Microsoft replaced MSN with Skype. There is no need to worry about the previous contacts.

Users can log in Skype with the existing messenger username and keep all their connections. Skype can use on various platforms, such as iPhone, iPad, Mac, Android, Windows Phone, Windows PCs.

Skype for mobile phones and PCs all support a video call and allow a calling on the crossing platform. The new version of Skype also supports 3G and Wi-Fi mode. Wherever you are, you can share the exciting moment with your friends.

Furthermore, the new design of User Interface gives a better using experience. It is very convenient for cellphone Skype users to launch or answer a video call. For example, if you want to call Lily, and you need to find her in your contact lists and click more details about her then you can see "Skype video call" and click it to start your conversation. When you have a voice call, you can click the button "switch to video call" on the right bottom of the screen to launch a video call.

There are several choices when you are having a video call, such as whether mute or not the microphone, end a call, etc. Firstly, entering the video menu, then click the button reminded by the cell phone menu to chose pause or to restart the present call. If at the same time there is a GSM call entering, and a voice prompt will remind you of choosing to refuse or to answer and a pop window saying "answering the new call keeps the present call waiting" will show too.

If you are ready to end the GMS call, you can restart the previous call by hand. Just slightly click the screen, the button appeared that can help you return. Pay attention to that only Android 2.3 or a higher system can meet the requirements of a video call. You are strongly recommended to connect a strong Wi-Fi to ensure a higher quality conversation. Skype for Android supports many languages, such as Brazilian, Portuguese, English, German, Italian, Japanese, Korea, Russian, Chinese, etc.

More fun will found in Skype Mojos. Because those little additive clips in the expression board help you express yourself with your favorite characters. More convenience and privacy will enjoy by grouping the chat or video calling with several contacts. More cooperation will be built by sharing screens or the photos, files and creating together.
