PrettyITGirl presents: My reasons why Skype application sucks in every platform.
Before anything else, can I just make a disclaimer?
DISCLAIMER: This post is not related or does not come from any company nor from any rival application of Skype. This post is merely a blog post and is here to express the author's very opinion on why the Skype sucks and should not be used as much as possible. This post is not intended to do any harm on Skype and its companies.
Alright. I'm going to give you here some of my opinions on why Skype sucks! I will try to use an alternative verb or adjective later (other than the word 'sucks'). I am currently copying a Steam in Windows, because I left my company's macbook pro at the office. I'm copying Dota2 from external drive to my local - Windows laptop! Yey! I just hope that I won't be updating my steam copy later.
Going back to the real purpose of this blog, why I hate Skype. Let me first tell you that I have already used and tried Skype application on various platforms. Name it motherlover!
To enumerate the reasons, first I got this:
1. SKYPE IS EFFINGLY SLOW
I don't know if I am just exaggerating my first reason but I really find it slow, especially in Mac. Bloody Hell, Skype! You are as slow as android studio running on my Windows Laptop with an A8 AMD CPU!
2. THE WEB SKYPE VERSION SUCKS TOO
Well, we all know that this web version is in beta yet, but it still sucks! You can't sometimes receive some of the messages sent to your certain groups. Fix it, Skype!
3. SKYPE'S SOUND IS ANNOYING
At least for me, it is. Especially in iOS, when you first launch your application, the sound like a bursting rocket launcher will irritate you.
4. SECURITY AND PRIVACY IN SKYPE ARE JOKE!
Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac - Spammers are everywhere. I don't know how the Skype filters spammers, but they're always there. Freakin' spammers!
Next, one time, I was chatting with a stranger, and then I decided to block that person. Guess what? Thank you Skype! That person can still contact me until now! Thank you!
5. SKYPE IS GIVES YOU HASSLE.
Mac and Windows - In my experience in using Skype application on Mac, the application sometimes will not work and won't open up! Great! Given a random day and random time, the Skype will just not open up and crashes on Mac. Remove it from Applications Folder, reinstall, restart the computer - None of these worked. You just need to give some random time too the application for it to run.
Now in Windows, installation just takes forever. No words to describe how annoying it is! Ha!
That's all guys! Do you have any particular reasons too why you hate Skype? Share it here in comment section or contact me.
