    Natively on the iPad I have found a few like talkatone that work but it is ugly as it is only for iPhone any ideas

    Also it does not have to be google talk but it does have to be supported by many platforms as possible not just the ipad

    TextFree with Voice! It's a free app. I got it when recommended by forum members so I could occasionally text my son who usually doesn't answer anything except texts which my phone doesn't have. How shocked was I when tapping around the app to learn how to use it I accidentally "rang" him up .....and he answered! There I was talking to my pad thinking "Is this real?" Which begs the ? Since my iPad is in my purse all the time why do I need a cell phone?

    It seems that Mick cannot find the Textfree app in the store, wherefore he asked for another name.

    The core of this misunderstanding is, that some apps are only available in certain countries and Textfree with voice is one of them.

    Don'tunderstand...... Seems to think Mick is in another country and can't access the same apps. I private messaged Mick with some alternatives to getting apps like going directly to the creators web page. We'll see how he finds what he needs. It may be another app that uses the iPad mic to make voice calls. Anyone got a good one?
