Here are comments from some of our Skylook users:

“It skypefies Outlook and it’s awesome.” – Michael Arrington – www.techcrunch.com

“Thanks for the update, if only more companies were like you!” – Carey Rudd, Online Knowledge.

“Skylook – great product, EXCELLENT Support. Response is swift and effective. Good work, Skylook team!” – Veronika Makk, Melbourne, Australia.

“Thanks for your prompt reply and action. Still really enjoying the product.” – Roger Cressey – QUBIX

“W….O….W!!! If ever there was a software upgrade you ‘must’ get if you even dream you might want to use Skype… THIS IS IT!” – Lee Hopkins – leehopkins.net

“I congratulate you on your program! This implementation rocks!” – Karsten Gerhardt – www.3si2.com

“Superb product. It makes my audio recording so easy it is unreal!” – David Chriscole

“A dream for podcasting with supreme audio quality and variable output options” – James Woodcock – www.jameswoodcock.co.uk

“There’s no way I can do without Skylook” – Ruud Hein – www.ruudhein.com

“Your software is fantastic” – David Brown – www.dbrownmanagement.com

“Skylook is a wonderful productivity enhancement. I’ve been using a competitor’s Skype recorder for my phone consultations, but the quality, beautiful design, and intuitive features of yours won me over. Skylook even enhances Outlook in ways that have nothing to do with Skype. For instance, I like that whenever you’re reading an e-mail message, the Skylook toolbar displays the name of the contact, with a drop-down menu of various options, such as creating a new appointment with that contact.” – Michael Ray Brown – Story Sense

“You guys definitely have the best technical support in the business” – Michael Ray Brown – Story Sense

“I’ve been using Skylook since version 1.x, and I’m thoroughly impressed with it – the product is excellent and the support is as good, if not better (in the rare event that you need it). I would highly recommend this to all Skype users who use Outlook.” – Rob Iles, UK

“A fantastic product!” – Rick Blaisdell – www.mailmethods.com

“Many, many, many thanks for your stellar customer support.” – Kaelin Kelly – Online Skype Classes

“If you use Skype… Skylook is a must have extension.” – David Anderson – www.grupo-utopia.com

“Skylook, which records Skype conversations in the MP3 format, has become a mainstay for me.” – Howard Wolinsky – Chicago Sun-Times

“I was really impressed with the support and overall good attitude this company has with me as first a beta user and now a paying customer, and I thought it was very refreshing that they listen to their customers requirements and suggestions…the American software vendors that I am use to dealing with could learn a thing or too from the good software folks down under at Skylook” – Kyle Jones – St.Petersburg, Florida USA

“I love your product.” – Ryan Bradshaw – www.buildstar.com

“…an indispensable utility for Skype” – Mike Strock – www.myhomeoffice.org

“I wish all software products had the support that you provide!” – Federico Chan

“Great work on Skylook and the latest update.” – Chris Saad – www.faradaymedia.com

“Wow — this works like a charm… Really nice interface, too” – Regina Nuzzo – Freelance Science Journalist

“Top Skype add on … can’t think of anything I’ve come across for Skype that is better.” – Adam Davies – www.justhom.com
