Overall Satisfaction with Skype
I used Skype for the first time 15 years ago. Videoconferencing from user to user wasn't widely available at that time due to the lack of software applications. My duties in Canada involved dealing with vendors from Australia, the UK, India, the Philippines, Canada, and the US. Seeing each other's faces was what I liked about it. At the time, it was free, and it is still free today as long as both parties are using Skype. We prefer Skype because of its security issues, but they've also been around for a while.

What I like about this application is the security. We constantly hear about security issues with other apps, but we don't hear about them with Skype! When you hear about other applications having security or privacy issues, you wonder what Skype is doing right in comparison. Therefore, Skype's existence for over 15 years means something!
