Last night, Skype began rolling out the iPad enabled version of their app across multiple countries. Shortly after the app was available in New Zealand and Europe, it became available in the United States. Around a hour later it was finally available in the United States, but it got removed because it was “released pre-maturely.” Anyhow, it is now officially available all across the world to all users – we have our hands on it and have been using it since launch. Read on as we give you an in-depth review of the app.
Next you may be wondering what happens if someone calls you on your iPad while the app is closed, well you get a very nice notification that pops up prompting you to either answer or decline the call. I predict that the notification will be even more implemented once iOS 5 is released.
You also have the ability to chat to other users while on a call. A you have to do is tap on the chat bubble on the bottom left of the screen.
You can also search the Skype directory to find family and friends to call if you know their screen name.
You can download Skype for iPad here.
I am still finding out more features and will update this post as I find more.
