Skype Excited About New iPad App

Posted Jun 27, 2011

After months of testing, Skype confirms that iPad users will have an iPad-specific Skype app on their tablets soon. Skype’s VP of Consumer and Product Design, Rick Osterloh, interviewed with TUAW to talk about the upcoming release. The app will have the expected basic Skype functions, talking to others through chatting, audio and video connections, with a few sacrifices. The app won’t have file sharing because of how iPads handle files, but Skype’s excitement about the release makes it seem like the functionality of Skype with the camera of the iPad 2 will be a welcome addition to the tablet’s abilities.
