Skype for iPad

Great news for iPad fans, Skype for iPad is here, finally. The news was announced by Skype on it’s blog today. The app is now available in the App Store for free! This great app has now been perfectly optimized for iPad’s larger screen. Anyone who has been using the Skype app for iPhone will immediately recognize the difference as soon as they start using the app on the iPad. Things have been optimised to properly utilise the ample space available on the iPad’s large screen. The layout in the app has been changed to suite the iPad. The contacts page looks much more clearer and roomier and easy to find with all the contacts represented by their display pictures shown in large thumbnail images. Just tap on the image and start talking. The panels inside the app move and slide around smoothly as the video goes full screen. The graphics is improved as well to suit the larger screen. It is much smoother and crisper. All the Skype capabilities found on the computer version are available on the iPad’s version as well.

You can make calls to land lines and mobiles at extremely less rates. You can also call other Skype users on their iPads or laptops and computers or any other device which supports Skype, for free. To send SMS messages to your contacts, just tap on the contact and then ‘send SMS option’. Enter the number, enter the text and with another tap your message is sent. You can also enter text to the person you have called to video chat.

Skype for iPad also takes full advantage of iPad’s dual camera while video chatting. The app makes use of the front camera while making video calls but if you feel the want to show something in front of you, just switch to the back camera of the iPad and instantly the other party can see what you see in front of you.

One major advantage over Face Time is that calls through Skype is not limited to iDevices.This is one app which which is a must have if you have an iPad.
