Pros and cons of Skype for Business app for iPhone and iPad

Skype for Business app good for

Hi, Please add the ability to delete multiples chat Threads in a raw. Thanks
Im missing mainly the whiteboard and apple pen support, which I hope should be not a big deal to add! If desktop/APP share would be add as well it would be great to share my office 365 documents as well... Otherwise it works for me...thanks to have that on an iPad!!! Great benefit!
Absolutely love that this easy communication tool is for MY WORK! Thank you Microsoft for making my life easier at work!!
Frequent updates to this app continue to improve it. Use Skype for Business way more than cellular or office phones now. Ability to use with other external business partners is excellent.
Please make sorting conversations History. 1 contact - 1 conversation
Works nicely, however if someone notifies a message, you are only able to read it in the notification centre (not even in full if the message is long): if you open the app a message history is lacking. Please fix!

Some bad moments

App non fit for mobility. Fonts too small, mute / unmute button unreacheable with a single tap... The days of the old skype app are forgotten... That was an app we could use on an iPhone. To be improved urgently, such a working tool is now a shame. No sync between PC and mobile, no history recorded on mobile ... similar apps are much more user friendly
When you search for a name of you contacts Skype for Business is crushing and shuts down. Dont update! Guys from MS please remove this bug.
No notifications unless you are currently in the app, and if you open the app you get all missed notifications, for each sentence a separate chat, even from same person...what a waste...
Just to remind you: while Skype, Hangouts and other good conference tools are free you have to pay for an office 365 subscription to be able to use this app. But anyway this app is really crap as other current Microsoft apps (Outlook). As others wrote many things do not work, e. g. Conference calls with Skype users or starting a presentation with is available on OneDrive. I really need to consider leaving the Microsoft universe.
Promised CallKit support in Oct is still not there, but I doubt that it can save this unreliable app. 2 stars only because 1 star goes to new Skype for Business Mac client. Its sad that Microsoft releases this trash for iOS and macOS users. From liking Microsoft, I am starting to hate it.
Stops sending notifications after around 48 hours leading to missed calls and messages. Not fixed many versions later.
