    Sorry, I don't know of anything that does this, but I have to say... seriously? That would be the most excessive baby monitor I have ever heard of.
    Surely you'd be better of purchasing a top of the range genuine baby monitor, if for no other reason that it would at least be designed for the job and be fit for purpose?
    I don't think I would trust the well being of my little ones to the off chance of a poorly design app on a couple of devices not designed to be environmental monitors.
    If you are intent going down this route you would probably be better off with 1 iPad and a good wireless webcam / mic setup in the baby's room. Most good ones have a web interface which you can monitor from any PC or the iPad's Safari browser.
    I think you are asking for trouble using a pair of iPads. Good luck though. Hope you find something that suits!

    I agree with you totally, but we end up in hotels some times with separate rooms and like to watch the kids instead of split them into two groups, hard to sleep

    I'll try Skype

    Skype to Skype
    or Facetime to Facetime I think would be the quickest

    btw drop a line if it works ok. Might need to use this in the future when visiting the inlaws

    If ur ipad and iphone is jailbroken there is an app you can get on both, 1 is free other is .99 i think, it allows you to see what ur iphone camera sees but on ur ipad screen. I am trying to remember the names.

    Skype worked out great, but it cut off around 6:am and refused to reconnect, i imagine they block users who video chat for more then 5 hours, i would, especially with toddlers sleeping in the video, but it worked out becuase none of the kids woke up for anything.

    I find it almost shocking how cool jail broken iPads are, I will certainly look into the app suggested, hopefully do a jb when ios5 is ready

    Thank you
