You can use the Skype application on your iPad to make calls but don’t get your hopes up for a great experience.
The 1.3.1 version works with Apple’s tablet but it doesn’t have an iPad-specific user interface. As you can see from the pictures, this means you’ll get the gross-looking blown up interface. The latest version does have the VoIP functionality you expect and there are some minor tweaks and improvements as well. Don’t be too hard on Skype though because it’s not marketing this as the “iPad app” and it didn’t have hands-on time with the device to craft a version that can take advantage of the tablet’s beautiful screen.
“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,” Skype wrote on its blog.
