WHY THE @SKYPE UI FOR OS X SUCKS PT. 3


So I took the time to load up Skype 2.8 for Mac OSX on my machine and thought I’d show the comparison of how shitty their UX designers are.  I mean, these are some really dumb pieces of shit here.  

At first we see Skype 2.8 with both the contact window AND the chat window open.  Check that out, less than 560 x 380 pixels! FOR TWO WINDOWS!

Now here we have Skype 5.6.  Image 1 shows the contact window and image 2 is the same window after you double click on a contacts name to have a chat with them.  This window is 500 x 590 pixels plus you’re losing a good deal of data and it requires you to perform additional actions that the UI in 2.8 does not require (ie, see who’s online, etc).  Plus, the worst part is you can’t read the contact’s full name in this window.
