    I am able to call my sister in Japan for free using Skype. I am so grateful for this app!

    Agreed! I've moved to Slack for communicating with my team in a business setting, but Skype is still my trusty favorite for making phone calls and video calls from my computer and phone.

    Unfortunately it's a Microsoft product so it doesn't bridge the gap between "Facetime" and everyone else. Ugh... Apple!

    Yeah its a pretty good app for people needing to communicate abroad. But it can also be a pain in the posterior because on my Windows 920, Skype has connecting me with Unknown people and listing them in my Windows contacts from all over the world and vice versa. And I contact Microsoft Windows about this issue and they told me Skype was not a program of theirs and to contact Skype. Which that kind of blew me away because I was wondering on how Skype had a embedded program in Windows if it's not a windows program. So I was a little dumbfounded on how that worked. But for future reference Skype is not a program that is ran by Windows, It's a independent company that Microsoft uses.

    Skype is very much an independent operation in Luxembourg, quite outside of Microsoft in Redmond, USA.
