Apple products are always perfect and beautiful. But the greatest tragedy for apple user is less availability of their favorite applications. Mac is not an exception either. I know many of you got fed up while you were trying to install Skype on Mac from its official website. It is really difficult for some of us to find and install Skype on Mac from the official website though it is there. But it is not that difficult either. So, let’s guide you through the installation of Skype on Mac and other Apple devices.
If you are one of those people who have been using Skype for years on windows, afraid to switch to Apple fearing it is not available. Then you are wrong, Skype is available for almost all the platforms including Mac. There is tailored version of Skype available as Skype for IPad, Skype for iPhone and also a Mac, on the apple app store. It’s your lucky day, don’t you think?

If you are having any problems with your Skype, then they may be due to the drivers. If you are using an external web camera then make sure you have downloaded the drivers for the camera.
Skype can sometimes have issues with OSX below 10.9, so I highly recommend you to update your Macbook OS to the latest version. Always make sure you have a working internet connection too, at least 100 kbps download speed and 50 kbps upload one.
Using Skype on Macbook is an awesome experience; you can even download it on your iPhone from the apple app store. So, enjoy Mac-skyping.
