    Is there any word on Skype having an iPad version? Don't like using the iPhone one on iPad.

    Let's hope they deliver it a bit sooner than they did with video calling for the iPhone 4.

    It took over 6 months from the release of the iPhone 4 for Skype to implement video calling into their app, and I hope it isn't going to take that long for something to come to the iPad.

    FWIW, video calling in Skype actually works with the ipad2 using the iPhone version of the app (front facing camera and all). Obviously not the greatest experience in the world, but I was surprised to see it work.

    Skype iPad with iPhone app

    I actually did this earlier today and it really wasn't that bad. The call lasted for 40 minutes and there wasn't 1 hiccup. Obviously the quality could be a lot better (using the 2X button) but it worked.

    I would definitely like to see an iPad app soon for Skype but in the meantime I have no issues using the iPhone version on the iPad.

    Check out the app "Whistle". No video, but free calling to anyone, any number right from iPad, not just other Skype users. Good until Skype updated.
