Not working!!
by Palak2612 on 2018/07/23 18:17
It says the developer needs to update it to work with ios 11. Can this be addressed ?
Only works when active
by NicTech on 2018/05/18 03:17
The app only works while open, no background functionality. Major design flaw for a mobile business app.
Update to IOS 11
by Ruth Awasak on 2018/04/04 04:32
You may wish to update to IOS 11 to enable the software run on that platform. Thanks

I use this to stay connected to my team but now since the latest upgrade on the iPhone IOS this doesn’t work. When do you plan on upgrading?
No iOS 11 update.

When will you do the update for the new IOS 11 ??? Apparently tge app will not work without you do an upgrade. I use this app a lot and would like it to continue to work
Needs update
by ElenaMorgan on 2017/10/06 14:35
I’ve got to use it only for one month and as soon I updated my iPhone it became incompatible.
Doesn’t work and isn’t updated with the lates Apple software
by Parksbrandy on 2017/10/05 01:08
You can’t see chats unless you start them. It’s slow and not fully connected. My iPhone updated last night and now the app isn’t even compatible with apples newest software
iOS 11
by Whiskey pilot on 2017/09/24 21:08
App will not work with iOS 11. Very disappointing.
App Not Working with iOS11
by Candi3112 on 2017/09/19 20:55
Hey there. Will there be an update for iOS 11 for us to use Lync 2010?
Sorry this one is going the way of the Buffalo
by bdroye on 2017/05/30 20:27
I am forced to get rid of this app unless it is upgraded. Sorry but MS's poor support will send this one to the grave.
Update needed
by Boxman. on 2017/05/05 16:40
Won't work on iPHONE without updates! Love the app but no good if I can use it
Love it! Only able to use this version
by Ang04! on 2017/04/17 18:28
It keeps prompting me to upgrade but this is ONLY one that works on Iphone so will not. Please do not remove this version. Works great
Where are the updates?
by Sampsonpka on 2017/01/05 15:27
This app is so outdated, it crashes and my phone prompts me to delete it due to poor upkeep. When can we expect an update??
TIME FOR AN UPDATE
by Kkkkkkkhhjm on 2016/10/09 22:44
It's been 3 years since you last updated this app. We hope you could give some time to work on it.
Awesome but needs improvement
by artemmetelskiy on 2016/08/23 23:11
Overall I like the idea of using Lync on iPhone but it need to be able to send notifications and designed to fit iPhone 6
Works OK
by karaokeman on 2016/08/04 21:44
Does what I need it to do (most of the time). Would upgrade to Skype for Business but my company doesn't support it. Most annoying thing is the constant pop up telling me that my calls are not forwarded. I know they aren't and there is not way to turn off the pop up.
More work done
by znyper on 2016/06/20 15:08
I like to finish my work from at times but this app does not leave off from where I left my conversations at work. I do get notifications when I receive a message but I cannot see the message at all.
Would be OK
by BriWM on 2016/05/12 02:58
My company is still with the 2010 applications. Would be nice if this app scaled to my iPhone 6S plus.
Maximum Productivity
by jberner557 on 2016/02/02 18:06
For when that important conversation just can't wait for you to use the restroom.
iOS9
by Brette C on 2015/10/27 14:09
This version does not work with iOS9. Can't connect to server.
Pretty good but would like to see..
by tlw911 on 2015/08/13 01:23
Would like to see a feature that displays notifications. I have the function enabled on my iPhone but the app does not alert me.
Bad Product
by Bdn76767676 on 2015/07/29 21:38
I think this app has a great potential - if it's written better, i.e.!! Not sure if they are not fixing this because it's the 2010 version! But sure acts weird, on the go!!
Garbage
by burajin on 2015/06/05 13:00
Many companies including my own are not upgrading to 2013 because it gives MSFT our employee credentials in the cloud. So we are still stuck with 2010. It needs to be updated if you have this many users still on it, period. It's still iPhone 4 size for Christ sake.
Borderline "OK"
by MOMO_7 on 2015/05/19 07:56
The app does the job, but lacks support for the big screens of iPhone 5 and newer. As a result you can't see the conversation because the keyboard takes up all the space. The GUI is poor, no push notifications like every other app. Poor presentation but allows communicating with colleagues. Therefore it's borderline ok.
App Update Required
by Iphoneloverandchamp on 2015/03/22 16:36
Serious App update is required for Lync 2010. As our organization is still using 2010 architecture and this app is outdated to fulfill the purpose on newer iPhones and iOS releases.
I like but
by LuisBarrelin on 2015/03/20 03:22
We need compatibility screen resolution with iPhone 5/6/6s. So, we also know that a lot IT didn't update the lync server from 2010 to 2013
Poor support
by Jonli447 on 2015/03/19 04:00
Many organizations still use Lync Server 2010 and will not upgrade to 2013 for some time. Therefore, Microsoft should consider maintaining support for this version of Lync (as the 2013 client version does not support Lync Server 2010). This app absolutely needs the notification and synchronization bugs fixed. Also, compatibility for the iPhone 6/6+ screen size would be appreciated.
Needs overhaul
by IPhone42025 on 2015/02/25 17:20
Notifications show up on lock screen but not in the actual app Conversations do not carry over to your desktop
Please update for ios8
by Lync2010 User on 2015/01/28 17:04
Please update for iOS 8! Not all large companies update their enterprise systems so quickly. At least update the screen size for newer iPhones
Watch out for this!
by Dave10101 on 2015/01/25 21:33
Called a few numbers from abroad thinking I was actually using Lync after all I was in the app. Found out later when I got my phone bill that it placed the calls direct. And I got a hefty bill. No warning, nothing, MS garbage....rant.
Unstable
by Graphxgirl on 2015/01/14 00:45
When working its a great app to stay connected to work colleagues, but too often has trouble logging in. Message about can't connect cause server may be down gets old.
Great app! Very easy to understand and use!

It's doesn't work
Dreadful
by Teknolust on 2014/11/13 03:55
Microsoft would do well to update their apps every now and then. The app doesn't support native screens on the iPhone 5, let alone the 6 or 6 Plus.
No good
by O'Dingle on 2014/10/31 21:04
Once my phone locks and messages come up, you will never find out what they said unless you ask them to send it again and keep your phone active. It could be a great app but right now it's not worth the light of day!!
App does work with iOS 8.
by D. Brown on 2014/10/10 17:39
UPDATE: If you're having issues with this app force closing after you upgraded your firmware to iOS 8, all you have to do is delete the app and reinstall it. This worked for me and I have an iPhone 6 with 8.0.2. This app did work well prior to the release of iOS 8. Once you update your phone's OS, the app won't even open. The developers for this app haven't issued an update to their app since April 2013, so I doubt they still support this app/will be releasing an update to make this compatible with iOS 8.
Caution: Abandonware
by Calmstorm on 2014/09/24 03:50
This app exists for one purpose: to sell upgrades to Lync 2013. It's going to work for my organization. And that's a shame.
Yep, Microsoft at its Best
by erik3266 on 2014/09/06 16:39
Only has worked once in a week. Good job Microsoft.
Needs updates
by Gustavo de Brito on 2014/08/27 13:49
The app ia not optmized for the screen size of iPhone5 and does not have the iOS7 UI. Also needs an updated icon. My company paid for the office Lync Server so i think we deserve more from Microsoft. Please update the app. Thank you.
Doesn't work
by GreenPrell on 2014/08/12 20:44
Never signs in correctly.
Terrible!
by O. Milano, RN on 2014/08/05 19:15
At least update the app to support iOS 7...
Where's the message?
by Original Mr Honey on 2014/07/30 17:19
While I like having access to reach out to my team while away, I don't like that a message will pop up in my notifications then not show in the actual message. They become ghosts.
Works!
by Ashp87 on 2014/07/02 04:34
Simple and it works! Not sure why there's such a low rating. You just have to get necessary information from your company to connect.
A+
by Ojiana234 on 2014/06/15 11:22
Great for my conference call. Love it.
Junk. Without another option
by Elroy 74 on 2014/06/13 15:22
Barely functional. Unreliable in every way. And there is no other viable option. Zero stars, Microsoft (Apple forced me to give you at least one).
Kinda works . Mostly crap .
by IphoneIsSecure on 2014/05/24 15:20
Well , I appreciate that MS has a lync app for iphone , but don't expect it to be good enough for business . Most of the time I receive notifications of a message but it's not in the Lync app. I have missed countless messages . So "sorry I was on mobile, can you resend" becomes the norm. Most of the time I get an annoying server error but it's still "working". If you are logged into pc and mobile app... Well .. Good luck to you. If you need something stable , try google hangouts . Otherwise you can waste time chasing messages from people.
Send and Delete keys too close
by TK Witt on 2014/05/14 17:36
I admit I am a fat-fingerer, but this app is the worst for that. I find myself accidentally hitting the "send" button when I had intended to delete text.
Horrible
by Rayan A D on 2014/05/02 20:50
Microsoft hasn't even bothered to update this app to fit the dimensions of the iPhone 5/5s. This app is terrible, hence why I use Apple for my personal computer and software.
Notification bug
by hamsat on 2014/04/30 14:13
The notification bug is so annoying and makes the whole app rather useless!
Works fine for me.
by Ryan W K. on 2014/04/22 03:35
This app is simple, and while I would like more functionality I haven't had any issues using it with my company. It would be nice if they bundled Lync 2010 compatibility into 2013 and kept it up to date. Those of use who's companies only support 2010 are stuck on this old version.
Good but not perfect
by Inderjit Singh on 2014/04/07 13:15
This is not optimised for iPhone 5. It still shows same size as of iPhone 4 Another problem is too many bugs like name n status doesn't update as always.
Needs an update badly!
by KingSonal on 2014/03/28 19:00
C'mmon guys, update this app. It still is in iOS 6 era, and not optimized for any phone after iPhone 4S. Works good, extremely helpful. But GUI needs an update.
Ios 7 support need
by DrummermMusicfreak on 2014/03/19 02:57
Needs support for ios 7
When is the next update?
by LocsNSoul on 2014/03/19 01:01
Lync 2013 looks nice, but not all organizations are running 2013 servers. This version has not been updated since last year and does not sync conversations with the server. If you don't tap the notification when a message comes in, you're SOL with that conversation. You have to annoy the sender and start a new conversation to respond. C'mon Microsoft.
Great tool but...
by LegGT on 2014/03/12 14:12
... Needs iPhone5/s/c support. Shouldn't be an issue for such a big company. Easy 5 stars if that is taken care off!
Full of bugs = useless
by SevenVII7 on 2014/02/27 01:18
Hey Microsoft, this is a major FAIL. Take a look at the ratings for this product and please put some resources behind this so it actually works. Right not this is worse than beta. Issues include: - I can send msg but then cannot receive any messages. Defeats the whole purpose of having a enterprise messaging app - No notifications? Are I kidding? - update screen size? Hello!? iPhone 5 has been out for how long now?
Worst app
by mi$t999 on 2014/02/19 14:40
It crashes a lot. Issues in connecting. Screen render issue.
No worky
by Jjjdizzle on 2014/02/14 20:38
Gets stuck in 'logging in', but never logs in. Big data/battery drain.
Needs push notifications
by dit0mat0 on 2014/02/05 18:56
Needs push notifications for instant messages. Without them, the app is pointless.
Not very functional
by Snoflake_21 on 2014/02/04 17:37
If you are depending on this as a reliable means of communication, I would not! It not very efficient and there does not seem to be a way to configure notifications to let you know you hav a new message. Much more development needed to make this worthwhile. It would seem you hav to have the app open in order to know you have a message and your desktop version needs to be closed in order to receive on your phone.
Used to work now is unusable
by Z85 on 2014/02/03 14:09
Totally unusable. One of the worst apps ever. Incredibly unstable.
Not bad, please make fullscreen on IOS7
by kflorida78 on 2014/01/28 21:48
Does the job, worth downloading if this is what you use at work.. They need to update it to fit larger screens though.
Needs iPhone5 support
by ashh r on 2014/01/21 22:28
Its weird that it still doesn't support iPhone 5 its more than 1 and half year..!!!
Works but tiny font
by Jimhyt on 2013/12/27 18:40
App is a bit slow but acceptable. What is in bad need of improving is the font size which is about a 3-4 point size. No adjustment is possible so you are stuck at this size.
Needs an update for iPhone 5
by HKindi on 2013/12/24 01:21
Team, The Lync app is smaller than the screen in iPhone 5, 5s and 5c. Cheers, Haider Al Kindi
Horrible
by Winfeel on 2013/12/18 09:48
It's been a year plus since iPhone 5 was introduced and I just can't believe this freaky 3.5inch app is still leaving me all the black margin, not to mention the lack of details in its build...
Message disapparing
by JackqaZ on 2013/12/13 22:10
I get a notification of a message but then the message disappaers from the app. I don't see it in chats or missed conversations. Please fix this bug.
Broken
by FlannelMan92 on 2013/12/12 23:25
Not forward compatible with Lync 2013 and vis-a-versa? Can't log in anymore, tells me my password or account is invalid, works fine from my PC.
No iPhone 5/5c/5s screen nor Retina graphics
by alanplur on 2013/12/12 17:29
Come on Microsoft, it's been plenty of time after the introduction of the iPhone 5 (and subsequent models) and the graphics are prehistoric (not retina adapted) and screen size is not being adapted to 4" screens as well. I know there's the 2013 version but when you are set to use this one you're screwed.
Horrible
by Dangermen. on 2013/12/11 13:17
This app is horrible. It hardly works right, if ever. I have lost more conversations with this app with broken one way communications or getting notified of an IM only to come up blank. MS should be ashamed of this app.
Horrible
by SupraSam on 2013/11/26 22:13
Absolute disregard for their customers. This app only works if you are the sending party. If you're receiving an IM, you will get the notification but the message will never show up. As far as the screen sizing? They obviously don't care at all about iPhone 5 users. This thing is a joke.
Worthless
by Lync app failure. on 2013/11/21 06:01
Depending on this app puts your job in jeopardy.
No support for iPhone 5/5C/5S
by skylarknz on 2013/11/17 21:23
Really lame not updating this app for the current and previous iphone versions. Shame on you MS.
MS - Go back to the drawing board
by LordBleen on 2013/11/17 05:17
Okay… I get it, why put a lot of development support in the “2010” version when 2013 is out. Unfortunately, our enterprise just moved from 2007 to 2010 within the last year… let alone even think about 2013 or 365. I would like to see 2010 support in the 2013 app and just maintain one app. Push notification bugs are my biggest issue with the app.
iPhone 5 support please!!!
by Nz4ypt on 2013/11/06 20:31
Plz!!!!! How hard can that be
As buggy as Win Vista OS!!
by Axitshah on 2013/11/06 18:10
No updates to fix any bugs.. Messages displayed in banner but not in app, instability while chat, no iphone 5 UI and many more.. If it is strategy to divert users to win OS, then I better ask my organization to move to lotus sametime!! ;)
No Guest Attendee
by Ricardomt on 2013/10/31 20:21
There is no guest attendee capability in the app. Totally useless for me.
Just plain bad.
by smeo2nm on 2013/10/25 14:44
E.g., Hitting enter doesnt bring you to next field.
Blank messages
by Vee L on 2013/10/25 12:13
Message comes through on banner when multitasking on phone (in another application) but message disappears in conversation window once back in Lync. Sender also gets a "message undeliverable" response on that attempt, even though it came through on banner notification. Please fix.
No iPhone 5?
by Seanu13 on 2013/10/17 15:26
Baffles me that there's no iphone 5 support. Get on it.

Works great

Works fine for me and I can keep in touch even when I don't have my computer on me which is very helpful.
No chats!
by PearlyBaker on 2013/10/13 13:34
With a recent update I now get notifications on the iPhone screen but then there is no chat in the app. Get it together guys!
Can't sign in
by berrydz on 2013/10/12 05:38
This is horrible.. I dislike this app I know my password and email address for work and it says can't sign in thanks Microsoft! Make it work!!
Terrible app
by Jh5845 on 2013/10/11 18:17
Banner shows the message briefly but won't show in the "Chat". It also "steals" that chat from my online version if in connected concurrently. MS should fix this obvious issue
Typical Microsoft product
by Mikeytitz on 2013/10/04 12:29
Junk. It works as good as internet explorer...
Update the GD app already!
by Caedo12 on 2013/10/03 21:26
Understand this Microsoft - This is why people buy Apple products now. Your products are absolute rubbish. What a dinosaur of a company.
Nice when it works
by Pigglyjugf on 2013/08/16 13:42
...but it barely works. When you are not actively in the Lync app you will be push notified you missed a message but you can't actually ever view the message and it notifies you of this missed message with part of the text often up to five times consecutively. I once got stuck in some loop where the push notification wouldn't stop until I uninstalled the app. I now uninstall it about once a day and reinstall it only when necessary for work. Dear god, fix this stupid app already.
Basically works. Needs notifications.
by Casual game player on 2013/04/26 02:08
I first installed the app today. Easy to set up and I logged in fine. My Lync contacts were all there and I was able to message a few of my coworkers. However the connection either drops when I switch to another app, or I've had especially bad luck with my network connection. I have all notification types enabled but so far only a badge icon seems to appear and that only after I opened the app and read the new message. Around the same time I got the "missed conversation" email.
App does work with iOS 8.
by D. Brown on 2014/10/10 17:39
UPDATE: If you're having issues with this app force closing after you upgraded your firmware to iOS 8, all you have to do is delete the app and reinstall it.

Really annoying notification bug
by Iguanayvuv on 2013/04/15 21:06
This app would be great if not for the extremely annoying bugs around notifications. The first IM I receive is fine. But any after will notify again for both the old and new. Even if I cleared the conversation or picked it up on the PC. As I get more IMs the notifications multiply until eventually a dozen or more come at once for a single IM. This happened for the previous version too and I was hoping it would be fixed. Also iPhone 5 and retina support, I mean come on! I would love to go to the 2013 app but who knows when my company will upgrade....
Needs some bug fixes
by Tg5810 on 2013/04/11 02:56
1. When i receive an IM, i am notified in the banner but it doesn't stay in the banner list that i pull down to see more of the IM and open the app to reply. 1b. When i go to the app to search for the IM, it doesn't appear there at all. It's like it never even happened. 2. Provide iPhone 5 support. Need the app to fit the screen height because typing in the app has me missing the spacebar since the keyboard isn't in it's normal place at the bottom of the screen.
Not very functional

Works good but...
by mwojtowecz on 2013/08/19 20:21
I like this app, as it is supported by my organization, but its not optimized for the bigger iphone 5. If they could at least stretch the app so that it uses all of the screen, itd be perfect. But instead it thinks im using the old iphone and thus shows less screen area. I often mistype a lot of words as a result. Where the keyboard should show up at the very bottom of the screen, its moved up a bit. Id use lync 2013, but my company doesnt yet support it. 3 stars
Helps me be mobile and still available
by Beantown-G on 2013/06/06 13:08
Great way to keep connected with my enterprise team. Nice UI, good use of iPad layout. Issue: when I'm mobile, desktop users complain that messages to me fail although I get about 50% of them. Makes me not totally trust being mobile. Idea: Integrate with corporate digital phone system (cisco, etc) so I have true VoiP when traveling internationally.
Full screen support for iPhone 5 & bugs
by humphreyc on 2013/07/19 21:48
For a company with >$25B a year in operating income is it really that much for us to ask? The iphone 5 came out more than a year ago. Yes I'd love to use Lync 2013 but we're an office 365 and hosted lync customer and our provider still hasn't updated to Lync 2013 plus... every screen on my Lync 2010 iphone app says in yellow 'can't connect to exchange web server. You can try again later' and I do but the error never goes away. So lame and frustrating. We're now switching to ring central and have given up on lync for voice.
Kinda works . Mostly crap .

Well , I appreciate that MS has a lync app for iphone , but don't expect it to be good enough for business . Most of the time I receive notifications of a message but it's not in the Lync app. I have missed countless messages . So "sorry I was on mobile, can you resend" becomes the norm. Most of the time I get an annoying server error but it's still "working". If you are logged into pc and mobile app... Well .. Good luck to you. If you need something stable , try google hangouts . Otherwise you can waste time chasing messages from people.
Lync is going crazy!
by Singr03 on 2013/09/18 19:06
I've had this app for a while and for some reason it's freaking out lately. Even when I'm signed out on my phone, I'll get ALL the messages I would get on my computer popping up on my phone. Also, not only do they come through when they shouldn't, they come through double for each ping! It's awful! My phone starts blowing up w all these messages and then I go to clear them from lync app and it shows me I have to log in! Bizarre-please provide an update that addresses this!
Works fine for me.
by Ryan W K. on 2014/04/22 03:35
This app is simple, and while I would like more functionality I haven't had any issues using it with my company. It would be nice if they bundled Lync 2010 compatibility into 2013 and kept it up to date. Those of use who's companies only support 2010 are stuck on this old version.
I guess you don't care…
by JRock36 on 2013/04/11 04:51
For the love of God, could we please get some iPhone 5 support and update the graphics for retina display?! Retina has been out for almost three years now. Did you task a nine year old with the job of coding this pos? Maybe some executive's kid? It's hard to believe you guys released another update and it's the same crappy thing. At least with the desktop version you guys bundle the same crappy thing with a new UI
C'mon
by Cayleesgram on 2013/05/10 14:58
I get it that you guys do not want to play well with Apple... but I have an iPhone and an iPad. So do all of my users in my company. I can view conference video on these devices with ALL of your competitor’s products. I am sorry that I moved my company off of Web-Ex and onto Lync... In an effort to push out Apple, you might just push out your software customers who do play well with Apple. Also, how long has iPhone 5 been out? Food for thought.
Awesome but needs improvement
by artemmetelskiy on 2016/08/23 23:11
Overall I like the idea of using Lync on iPhone but it need to be able to send notifications and designed to fit iPhone 6
Works!
by Ashp87 on 2014/07/02 04:34
Simple and it works! Not sure why there's such a low rating. You just have to get necessary information from your company to connect.
I hope the notifications are fixed
by wavesolo10 on 2013/04/11 01:21
I really want to use 2013 version but my company uses this version. Hopefully this update fixes the notifications issue
Love it! Only able to use this version
by Ang04! on 2017/04/17 18:28
It keeps prompting me to upgrade but this is ONLY one that works on Iphone so will not. Please do not remove this version. Works great
Works Great!
by kc7zja on 2013/07/18 23:56
No problems with my iPhone 5. I may be missing something here, but it works great and I'm not expecting much more. I just want it to do the job, and it does.
When is the next update?
by LocsNSoul on 2014/03/19 01:01
Lync 2013 looks nice, but not all organizations are running 2013 servers. This version has not been updated since last year and does not sync conversations with the server. If you don't tap the notification when a message comes in, you're SOL with that conversation. You have to annoy the sender and start a new conversation to respond. C'mon Microsoft.
Poor support
by Jonli447 on 2015/03/19 04:00
Many organizations still use Lync Server 2010 and will not upgrade to 2013 for some time. Therefore, Microsoft should consider maintaining support for this version of Lync (as the 2013 client version does not support Lync Server 2010). This app absolutely needs the notification and synchronization bugs fixed. Also, compatibility for the iPhone 6/6+ screen size would be appreciated.
MS - Go back to the drawing board
by LordBleen on 2013/11/17 05:17
Okay… I get it, why put a lot of development support in the “2010” version when 2013 is out. Unfortunately, our enterprise just moved from 2007 to 2010 within the last year… let alone even think about 2013 or 365. I would like to see 2010 support in the 2013 app and just maintain one app. Push notification bugs are my biggest issue with the app.
Works great
by …really? on 2013/10/15 14:05
Works fine for me and I can keep in touch even when I don't have my computer on me which is very helpful.
Please fix notifications!
by Fumo on 2013/04/16 14:41
A single IM can case my phone to vibrate for 2-3 minutes with repeated notifications. I know most development is targeted to the 2013 version, but if you're not going to allow everyone to use that version, at least provide basic bug fixes. This is a major bug that makes the app almost unusable.
Works OK
by karaokeman on 2016/08/04 21:44
Does what I need it to do (most of the time). Would upgrade to Skype for Business but my company doesn't support it. Most annoying thing is the constant pop up telling me that my calls are not forwarded. I know they aren't and there is not way to turn off the pop up.
Where's the message?
by Original Mr Honey on 2014/07/30 17:19
While I like having access to reach out to my team while away, I don't like that a message will pop up in my notifications then not show in the actual message. They become ghosts.
Buggy! How hard could this be??
by GoPoncho on 2013/10/03 15:33
I also have the issue with the notifications. I receive the notification but the actual IM does not appear in the Lync application. So I have to log-in on my laptop and ping the person asking if they were looking for me. Completely useless…and disappointing to say the least.
Blank messages
by Vee L on 2013/10/25 12:13
Message comes through on banner when multitasking on phone (in another application) but message disappears in conversation window once back in Lync. Sender also gets a "message undeliverable" response on that attempt, even though it came through on banner notification. Please fix.
Good but not perfect
by Inderjit Singh on 2014/04/07 13:15
This is not optimised for iPhone 5. It still shows same size as of iPhone 4 Another problem is too many bugs like name n status doesn't update as always.
No iPhone 5/5c/5s screen nor Retina graphics
by alanplur on 2013/12/12 17:29
Come on Microsoft, it's been plenty of time after the introduction of the iPhone 5 (and subsequent models) and the graphics are prehistoric (not retina adapted) and screen size is not being adapted to 4" screens as well. I know there's the 2013 version but when you are set to use this one you're screwed.
ok functionality, needs UI updates
by iQwerty on 2013/08/08 18:33
There should be no excuse for lack of iPhone 5 screen support by now. Functionality is ok. Of course one gets more with Lync 2013, but not all companies are setup for Lync 2013 server, so one has to use this 2010 version.
Works but tiny font
by Jimhyt on 2013/12/27 18:40
App is a bit slow but acceptable. What is in bad need of improving is the font size which is about a 3-4 point size. No adjustment is possible so you are stuck at this size.
Maximum Productivity
by jberner557 on 2016/02/02 18:06
For when that important conversation just can't wait for you to use the restroom.
iPhone 5
by Anon1876 on 2013/04/11 12:35
Developers - first understand the priority. We do not need performance improvements and bug fixes at this point. Bring in the basic iPhone 5 support. If you cannot determine what the users want, then whom you are developing it for? and obviously the product is definitely loosing quality...
Pretty good but would like to see..
by tlw911 on 2015/08/13 01:23
Would like to see a feature that displays notifications. I have the function enabled on my iPhone but the app does not alert me.
Horrible
by SupraSam on 2013/11/26 22:13
Absolute disregard for their customers. This app only works if you are the sending party. If you're receiving an IM, you will get the notification but the message will never show up. As far as the screen sizing? They obviously don't care at all about iPhone 5 users. This thing is a joke.
Borderline "OK"
by MOMO_7 on 2015/05/19 07:56
The app does the job, but lacks support for the big screens of iPhone 5 and newer. As a result you can't see the conversation because the keyboard takes up all the space. The GUI is poor, no push notifications like every other app. Poor presentation but allows communicating with colleagues. Therefore it's borderline ok.
App works sometimes
by dykzeulb on 2013/07/12 22:28
App is buggy as can be. I select a status and it signs me out and doesn't allow me to send messages. Tried to use 2013, and it states I can only use 2010. Turns out I cannot use either, if you can't design an app, you should've paid apple to do it for you.
Needs an update
by smaz571 on 2017/10/18 01:48
I use this to stay connected to my team but now since the latest upgrade on the iPhone IOS this doesn’t work. When do you plan on upgrading?
Garbage
by burajin on 2015/06/05 13:00
Many companies including my own are not upgrading to 2013 because it gives MSFT our employee credentials in the cloud. So we are still stuck with 2010. It needs to be updated if you have this many users still on it, period. It's still iPhone 4 size for Christ sake.
never works
by toobusytowaitforafix on 2013/07/20 17:07
Get notification banner but cannot get message in app at all-it just disappears. I miss who sent it half the time and never see the whole message. Completely useless. I love Lync but this app needs to be fixed. PLEASE fix this app I want to use it for work.
Doesn’t work and isn’t updated with the lates Apple software
by Parksbrandy on 2017/10/05 01:08
You can’t see chats unless you start them. It’s slow and not fully connected. My iPhone updated last night and now the app isn’t even compatible with apples newest software
Not expected this from a big company!!
by thesaintdfw on 2013/05/08 04:07
Hasn't been updated to iPhone 5 yet and app itself feels as if its written by a cheap company. The keyboard doesn't hide easily to see the entire conversation. Sloppy work by Microsoft.
More work done
by znyper on 2016/06/20 15:08
I like to finish my work from at times but this app does not leave off from where I left my conversations at work. I do get notifications when I receive a message but I cannot see the message at all.
Fix this!!!
by Chipfanatic on 2013/05/07 14:52
C'mon Microsoft. What is this with the crappy app?? I expected more from you!!! Now when I get an IM via Lync, I get like 10 notifications on my phone app. It keeps going and going and going for the same message. I really need this communication path to work so please fix this!!!
Pitiful
by SolaceLuna on 2013/08/10 11:28
When one receives Lync messages the notification center shows the first few words but when one goes to the Lync app the messages are not there. Unless you have Lync on the screen one cannot receive messages.
Update to IOS 11
by Ruth Awasak on 2018/04/04 04:32
You may wish to update to IOS 11 to enable the software run on that platform. Thanks
Watch out for this!
by Dave10101 on 2015/01/25 21:33
Called a few numbers from abroad thinking I was actually using Lync after all I was in the app. Found out later when I got my phone bill that it placed the calls direct. And I got a hefty bill. No warning, nothing, MS garbage....rant.
Garbage
by Jeremyzzzzzzzzzzzz on 2013/05/17 22:12
I'd rather use a tin can and wax string to communicate than to rely on this pos app. I have an iPhone for woke and a note2 for personal. It Works fine on my note but is a complete nightmare on iPhone. This just makes me despise the iPhone that much more. The note is light years ahead of the iPhone 5.
