Microsoft boasted it had rebuilt Skype 'from the ground up'. Instead, it should have buried it

Re: Skype Alternatives?

I have used Skype mobile largely to avoid the old international mobile roaming charges in Europe. Getting wifi in a cafe and using Skype was painless and cost effective.

- Painless. The new Skype app is the opposite of painless. Luckily I takes backups and can roll back to pre-update if needed.

- Cost effective. More importantly for me, since June European roaming charges have gone (mostly).

At just the time that MS have made Skype nasty, Europe has made it unnecessary. Swings and roundabouts. I have a couple of quid in Skype credit which I will keep for emergencies but that's it ended for me.
