A dedicated Skype app for iPad was in order, so developers did their best and made one available. It took some time, but at least in the end those who are Skype lovers and in the same time iPad users can now enjoy using their favorite app on their favorite portable device. If you are interested, you should stick around because I am going to provide some details about the features that Skype for iPad has to offer.
The main advantage of Skype is that it offers an alternative in situations when you notice that you have no more minutes left or a certain long distance call would cost too much. In order to use this app you will need a Skype Name and a Password. The good news is that for the basic services you won’t have to pay a penny. You will also get for free a phone number that your friends can use in order to get in touch with you. After you download the Skype app for iPad and install it you will have to use your account’s credentials and then get ready to be greeted by a Home screen that displays recent calls and the list of contacts available. You will also notice a link placed near the top left corner that allows you to change the details of your profile. In order to determine which contacts are online, you will have to look for green checkmarks. If a white X is displayed instead of the green checkmark, you will know that the one you want to reach is not currently on Skype.
When starting to use the app you are offered the chance to use a test call in order to make sure all settings are optimized. If you are satisfied with the quality provided, you can then start calling your friends one by one. If you decide to go for a video call, you will notice that the large touchscreen of the iPad is an asset, because the image of the one you’re calling always looks sharp and detailed. Because the iPad has two cameras, you will be able to switch between them and offer your conversation partner various viewing angles. You are also given control over the conversation’s status, meaning that you can at any time mute it or end it or switch it to full screen.
If you are not interested in audio and video calls, you can simply use Skype for iPad for the purpose of texting your friends. What I also need to mention is that the app saves the history of your conversations, so you will be able to review your latest conversations fast and easy.
