Thanks to a tip from Twitter (@iBattaglia), it has been found that the official Skype application is now available for the iPad.
The iPad version has been long awaited by the public so this release is taken with positive reception. Over the last month or so, there have been tons of teasers and rumors indicating that the release was coming soon. A leaked video was even found and confirmed to be a working version of Skype for the iPad. However, there was no indication or statement from Skype confirming the date of availability.
Without any notice, the iPad version has been snuck into the Skype AppStore application. It is available for download now. Give it a shot and post your thoughts here.
Here's a few pieces of information.
- Video calling on Skype for iPad works over 3G and WiFi
- Skype for iPad is compatible on firmwares 4.0+
- You can Skype all supported devices from the iPad (Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch, etc.)
To find the application in iTunes, follow this link (if you search "Skype for iPad" in iTunes, it does not come up):
