Skype for iPad, designed and optimized for the iPad, allows users to have video chats, send instant messages, and SMS texts from the beach, from home, or wherever they wish.
Skype for iPad is a new app that is designed and optimized for the iPad. Skype developers have taken advantage of the iPad’s large screen to help bring Skype video calls to life. Users can enjoy brilliant and clear video chats with family friends, in either landscape or portrait view, while at the beach, at home, or anywhere else you have 3G or Wi-Fi service.
Other features include:
- Two-way video calling.
- Instant messaging. You can even instant message during a video call on your iPad, with emoticons to personalize your message.
- Simple to view contacts. Contacts are now displayed in a grid on Skype for iPad, showing large avatar photos – making it easy to find your contacts and conversations.
- Easy navigation. Find your recent Skype conversations and history at the touch of a button making searching simple.
- SMS texting.
And, as is the case already, if you have Skype credit you can make calls to landline and mobile phones as well. Skype credit can also get you your own online number, call forwarding, caller ID, and Skype to Go.
The best part about Skype for iPad is that it allows you to connect with other Skype users regardless of their platform: PC, Mac, Linux, iPhone, Symbian, and Android. There’s also Skype-enabled TVs to make things even more interesting for Skype users.
