  3. Enable Multitasking in iPad

    As much as I know Skype is going out of support.. Can you please enable ipad multi tasking please.
    Its frustating that skype only works in full screen and if I want to do some work while in a call and see a presentation or just chat with a colleague while looking at some document in split view.. and I can not do that.

  6. Hide call button option

    Hi, on skype for mobile, please add an option to hideor move the call and video call buttons while chatting. I use those features rarely, but because of where it is, i hit the call button by accident roughly once a week

  9. Add option to hide the menu bar

    The menu bar itself not needed for everyday skype use, please add an option to hide it (and could be re enabled with a shortcut)
    advantages : more vertical space and more consistent design

  12. UI Needs Tweaking

    Skype UI should have an OPTION to be smaller/compact with additional organization options. Example is the Contacts menu. I should be able to:
    - sort the way I want (so not alphabetical) and put people in groups
    - make the rows smaller by reducing the picture and/or name text
    Overall UI:
    - allow just small icons to appear instead of name + icon (Chats, Calls, Contacts, etc). It's nice when starting out, but I need my screen space.

    Everything is just super bulky now without a compact option.

  13. More space devoted to the user status.

    The user status icon is hard to see on a high resolution monitor, only 14x14 pixels and it is very important information. There is enough room to add a much more visible flair for a user's state and even make the status icons a bit more differentiated just so its easier to see who is online at a glance.

    A page open to view latest updates from your contacts. Like Facebook but only status updates with like button. Would be nice!

  18. Icon Customize

    Icon on the notification area became green instead of blue with latest update.
    Give an option in Appearance tab to customize this color.
    Thank you.

  19. I brand new user interface - the existing one is appalling.

    Use actual users to test your ideas.

    Too many icons in too many places doing too many things with no tool tips.

    When adding someone to a call - show that person is being called, or not.
