The New Skype for iPhone app SUUUUCKS

Oh the frustration!

I stupidly updated the Skype app on my iPhone 6, and now I’m trapped in a half-baked, “I want to be like Snapchat” social media hellhole where I can’t do the basic productivity things I used to be able to do on Skype effortlessly.

Ability to see which of my contacts are active online? Gone.

Ability to change my status to “invisible” so that I don’t get pinged when I don’t want to but can still see who is out there? Gone.

Ability to set my status to “Do Not Disturb” when I am on a call and want to focus on it? Gone.

Do I want to share “highlights of my day” with my Skype contacts? No!  

It’s a freakin’ productivity app.

What was Microsoft THINKING? 

Make the pain go away, Skype.

I just want this to be over.

Maybe I’ll start using WhatsApp.

Sigh.
