    Correct 2 different apps. I use Skaype all the ime, since Facetime is not wide spread and limited to Mac.

    Did the other person see you? I was wondering how it worked perfectly for you since Skype does not have an app yet for iPad2.

    I used Skype on Easter Sunday to talk from the USA to Poland.

    The iPhone app works, it will be a lot better when a real ipad2 app comes out.

    Sunday, the picture was lousy and the sound was out of sync but it did work for 45 minutes.
