    Is it possible to do video calls on iPad 2 to pc?

    Is it possible to do video calls on iPad 2 to pc ? If so what app / software would I need. I'm going away soon and I really want to get this sorted out so I can chat and see the family on my iPad while I'm away.

    Many thanks

    +1 to Skype. Its the only app I know that you can use video calling on, I use it on my iphone 4 sometimes.

    I'm logged into skype literally 24/7 on my iPad, and video connected to clients and head office for at least 5 hours every day. It's great as you can still chat to your recipient with it whilst it's running in the background whilst other apps are running on top

    It will, but because the iPhone screen is much smaller, Skype will appear much smaller on the iPad screen. There is a 2x icon you can select, but the image is somewhat distorted when it fills the iPad screen.

    PS. Hopefully one day soon there will be a dedicated app for the iPad. Since the launch of the iPad2, which includes the camera (webcam), an app must be in the works.

    Facetime can do it.

    Do people on both sides if the conversation need to have Facetime? Or can the other person, if they don't have an iPad, use Skype on a computer while you use Facetime?

    No, both need FaceTime. If your conversation is with you and a PC you need Skype. I have to admit though, Skype is not great on the iPad. The video is quite distorted and I found FaceTime to be much more reliable and clear. But FaceTime is an apple app, so is you conversation is with a PC, than Skype is the way to go.

    Many thanks for the help peoples, I set up Skype on both (ipad & wifes pc) last night it's all good!... I agree tho that a dedicated iPad app for Skype would be pretty cool.

    Anyways all sorted so cheers.
