    I have downloaded the app for the iPhone, (not the iPad, because I can't find one) and there is no place within the app to do a video call? I went to their website, and clicked where it says download now, and it puts the app on iPad that I already tried and since uninstalled. FaceTime works great, but no Skype? Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

    Works a treat on mine.

    Tried a complete fresh cold boot?

    You should be able to just make a normal call from within Skype and than once the voice chat starts, it gives you an option to change it to Video Call.

    If you aren't given this option on your Skype version, than a reboot (pressing the power button for 5 sec. than slide to power off) is advisable.

    Hi,
    I've been following the forum for some time though this is the first time participating::)

    I have a question on Skype: does the Ipad 2 have a microphone for calls?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I've used video chat on my iPad 2 without problem, both domestically and overseas.

    Both facetime and skype work fine for me on the ipad2. Wish there was a true ipad version of skype though. I hate zooming 'compatible with iPad' apps :p

    Works great for me! :) I am sure there will be an iPad version eventually. Just hope the whole Microsoft buyout doesn't slow that down.
