Skype for iPad is here!
It was much-anticipated, released, then pulled, then re-released and it works great. The company said there were problems with it causing them to pull and then release it a few hours later. (Update) TMC’s Erik Linask thinks the problem is related to chat bug. There isn’t much to say except it has better quality than the iPod/iPhone version but the front-facing iPad camera is certainly a major limiting factor in the quality of the video calls you will experience.
An additional feature beyond what you can do on the iPhone is the ability to chat while conducting a video call. Hopefully over time all features we are used to on a PC and Mac will be ported over.
It certainly gets the Tehrani seal of approval and is a must download for all iPads.
