    If you are already signed in, the app will automatically take you to a contact list in order to begin a conversation (If you aren't signed in, refer to the article that teaches you how to sign into Skype using the iPhone 6). Tap the icon with 3 dots on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen to bring up a new blue menu.

    As you can see, it is now displaying Skype contacts named "Sarah". Sarah is a common name, which means many are being displayed - but you are able to see their location directly underneath their name. The Sarah I would like to add is from Ireland, so I will tap that name.
