At the time it said the Highlights feature “lets you create a highlight reel of your day with photos and videos”.However, a year later it is once again redoing the app because customers complained some of its core features were becoming “over complicated” and the company realised it “needed to take a step back and simplify”.In a blog post, Peter Skillman, Microsoft’s director of design for Skype and Outlook, said the new app will focus on simplicity, with a more efficient user interface that is easy to navigate.It appears Skype will be more wary of making drastic changes in the future and listen more closely to what users want.Skillman said the company worked with customers, performed extensive testing across global markets, and is building prototypes to test new concepts.Skype has also created a website so customers can vote on the features they want prioritised.As TechCrunch pointed out, “Skype should embrace its classic status, and not feel the need to play catch-up with teen chat apps like Snapchat”.

Brazil legend Romario believes that his country’s squad for the 2012 Olympic Games football tournament is not good enough, and that coach Mano Menezes made several mistakes with his selection.The Selecao boss handed the three slots allocated for players over the age of 23 to Thiago Silva, 27, Hulk, 25, and Marcelo, 24, but the 1994 World Cup winner thinks that they should have been used on more experienced players.“It’s rubbish. Nothing against the over-23’s who were selected, but this should have gone to players who are more experienced,” he explained to reporters.“I’m not the coach, but I disagree with this selection. I would take three defenders over the age of 23.“Hulk is a good player and has a big future, but he is a player for the 2014 World Cup, not the Oympics. We have too many players over the age of 23. We should have taken a player who commands respect.”Brazil’s squad for the Games will also include the likes of Neymar, Ganso, Leandro Damiao and Alexandre Pato. They will face Egypt, Belarus and New Zealand in Group C.
