Re: Skype
Yeah I feel like the apps are usually slower and have a weaker connection than most desktops. It's just my opinion that I like using FaceTime more. But I know many other people, including yourself, like videochatting over Skype on laptops.

Re: Skype
@dlr: I see.  Thanks for sharing.  I'm not sure if I've ever actually used videoconferencing apps on my phone (though I know many who have), so I wouldn't know.

I've certainly used a number of them on my desktop and laptop, however.  ;)

Re: Skype
Oh yes I was aware and I remember a couple years ago downloading it. At least on my phone it was very blurry and the connection was always awful on my end. After that I just got rid of it and use FaceTime, if I ever feel the need to videochat.

Re: Skype
Yes, that's true. I didn't really think of that.

I guess having a desktop handy is more likely than having an iphone. I know Skype is still growing and has programs that people today still like using. I guess it's just a personal preference of mine.

Re: Skype
Good point.

And I agree I do think that Skype has certain programs that consumers enjoy using. However, I would much rather pick up my cell phone than have to go on a desktop and wait for Skype to load. That's just my own personal opinion though.

Re: How does Skype even work now?
I can relate 100% as the things that you listed all apply at my work place as well - totally 100%.

Re: Skype
Absolutely, it also has a lot to do with personal choice. If someone is very adaptable with new stuff they would just pass on skype like things. Whereas on the other hand people that gnereally struggle to step out of their comfort zone, would love to continue with their favourites like Skype. :)

Re: Skype
@dhr5288:

I agree that face time has now become very popular for conversations. But i still think there are folks that use skype too. Face Time is only possible in smart phones and devices whereas skype could be leveraged in any desktops and laptops. The use of Skype could be diminishing in western countries. But it may stay alive at other geographies.

Re: Skype
@dlr: Skype has a mobile app/mobile functionality, too.  Were you aware, or do you not like the app for some reason?

Re: Skype
@dlr: I think it's different strokes for different folks.  My girlfriend is all about her phone -- using it for almost everything (although preferring to break out her laptop when she wants to look at things on a bigger sccreen, such as pictures of food for recipes).  I, on the other hand, prefer to use my phone strictly on an "on-the-go" basis -- and much prefer having the bigger screen, enhanced functionality, and bigger keyboard that a laptop or desktop offers.

Plus, gaming is entirely different between the two types of devices.  ;)
