Skype for iPhone


1. use of the app

The Skype app for iOS devices is initially designed for conversations. Users can get in touch with their contacts through video and audio calls. From anywhere in the world. The app is particularly useful

  • in the school sector,
  • in the university sector,
  • for meetings and conferences in the professional environment (independent of industry),
  • for the private sphere, to talk with friends or family

No matter where they are. Whether overseas or on the same street. With Skype, it no longer matters where the contacts are currently located.

Special situations and circumstances in life can prevent people from meeting in person. Whether it is distance, an illness, or financial reasons. With Skype, these obstacles can be overcome. So you bring the contacts to you: with the iPhone or iPad. When and where you want: on the couch, on the road or other places. And best of all, you can talk to several people at the same time and exchange information.

And if you don't want to communicate with your contacts verbally or via video, there's always the convenient chat function. In addition to texts, the user can also send pictures, emojis, videos and more.

2. most important functions

The main features of Skype's iOS app include video calls as well as audio calls. Phone calls can also be made to mobile and landlines. IP telephony allows the user to save on the expensive phone charges. This is especially interesting for calls to the USA, Russia, Africa, Asia, Australia. Where otherwise high costs are incurred, Skype ultimately charges only a small fraction.

In addition to video and audio calls, the user can also send voice messages to other Skype users, send them photos and videos. A chat function is also available. Emojis can be integrated here, as is the case with many other messenger services.

The number of participants for group calls and group videos is limited to 50. Group chats, on the other hand, are available for up to 300 participants. This makes Skype easy to use for homeschooling, video conferencing in businesses, or eLearning in universities. In addition, games and schedules can be included, and add-ins that provide additional help with organization. So working and chatting at the same time are not necessarily opposites. Rather, they complement each other through Skype.

Finally, those who still value individuality can freely personalize functions according to their wishes.

3. rating

Use Skype as an app, for mobile devices with iOS operating system. Many situations require permanent accessibility. And ideally, the available means for this should be easily accessible and as inexpensive as possible. Skype for iOS offers these advantages. Because the app is free of charge. For phone calls, however, the so-called Skype Credit can be topped up. This is worthwhile. Because with Skype, the user has the opportunity to call contacts from all over the world many times cheaper than with the conventional landline or mobile network.

The numerous functions offer the user a personalized, comfortable way to communicate. He can use all this both for private life and for the working environment: for work colleagues and teamwork, for keeping in touch with friends and family. And there it is also very advantageous that photos, videos and audio recordings can be sent with Skype.

Tutorial installation / de-installation on iOS

This is how easy it is to install and uninstall / delete iOS apps (applies to iPhone and other iOS devices):

The installation of apps is basically possible on iOS via the App Store. The App Store contains both free and paid apps that can be installed on the iPad, iPod or iPhone. The prerequisite for use is an Apple ID, which can also be created free of charge (this ID is also required for free apps).

1. In the AppStore, the user selects the appropriate app using the search or categories. To the right of the app icon there is a "load" button that is pressed.

2. In the next step, the user must log in with the Apple ID. If the ID has already been used for an app, all you have to do is enter the password - alternatively, Touch ID or Face ID can be used for new devices.

3. After entering the password or after authentication, the app is finally loaded and automatically installed. Entering the password is also necessary for free apps.

4. The app is loaded at the next free space on the home screen and can be opened there - alternatively, the "Load" button becomes the "Open app" button so that the app can be opened directly from the AppStore.

Uninstall apps in iOS

Deleting apps and programs on iOS is very easy and can be done directly from the home screen.
1. In the first step, the user looks for the app that needs to be deleted and presses the app icon with one finger for a long time.

2. The mode opens in which the home screen can be edited. An "X" appears at the top left of every app. Clicking on the "X" opens another dialog that asks you to confirm the deletion.

3. "Delete app" is selected here. Some apps save user data (e.g. scores) - therefore iOS can ask the user for some apps whether the app data should also be removed. If the app is reinstalled in the future, stored information can easily be reused.
