Does it exist? A voip software, which does not get closed down by the iOS? I have been reading about users, where Skype just gets shut down after a while, so I went ahead and tried to reproduce it. Started Skype on iPad and on a laptop. When starting N.O.V.A. 2, skype went offline immediately I am now running another test, where only medium intensive apps are used (iPF, Safari, iPod, Youtube, Flipboard etc.) and after 1h of use, skype is still online. Even when using backgrounder does skype not stay connected, if larger apps are loaded. The only way I would use voip regularly is, if it is as easy as cellphone calls, but if the voip software does not stay online, this is not the case. Would FaceTime stay online, or does it suffer the same fate as other apps?
