Skype and the Apple iPad
We’ve updated our iPhone app – you can now receive video calls on your iPad.
Update: We’ve released a quick update to our iPhone app which addresses a couple of iPad teething problems. You can download it now (opens in the App Store). Your feedback is still very welcome though, so keep those comments coming.
As you may have noticed, the Apple iPad has been released in the US today.
We don’t yet know how our app will behave on the iPad. Some journalists who had early access have reported that the existing Skype for iPhone app works just fine on the iPad hardware. This is great news, but certainly doesn’t give us enough confidence to be able to announce and release an app today as we want to give you the best Skype experience possible.
You can expect to hear more from us about an iPad app in the coming months as we now have our hands on actual iPads and can start tuning and testing.
I’d be very interested to hear from you about your experiences, so please keep me posted, either in the comments below or on Twitter: @peteratskype.
