    I just used Skype from my new iPad 2 to video call my grandchildren. It worked very well.

    Download Skype from the AppStore, login with your Skype account and call someone else.

    Tango is another good video conferencing app that let's u chat cross platform to other people with Tango on their mobile device ;-) I have Skype and Tango and works well on my ipad1. Although they can't see me, since ipad1 has no cam, I can still clearly see and chat with them ;-)

    You deleted FaceTime? Or does it not work anymore on iPad 1? Somehow I recall reading in one of your posts, that you installed FaceTime on your iPad.

    Close but no cigar...lmao. J/k. I posted a link where u can get or enable FaceTime on the ipad1. I never did it though as the process seemed like a hassel. With tango and Skype, all I do is download app and it works perfectly on ipad1, seriously. I can see n talk with them but they can only talk with me, can't see me since ipad1 has no cam. Plus FaceTime is only iOS to iOS device and I don't know anyone with FaceTime. I know plenty people with Skype accounts and Tango.

    There is a solution for that if they don't come out with iPad version soon. But it'll only be available once ipad2 jailbreak is here. There is an app in Cydia store( only can get this if Jailbroken) called Retina display. It makes all iPhone apps iPad native tellurium or close to it. One thing for sure, it looks a lot better thn the regular x2 mode. It's very clear as I have this tweak on my iPad and makes Skype and other iPhone apps look very good.

    Skype

    Hello,
    I downloaded Skype and could not get it to respond to the touch commands. I tried the iPhone version with the same results. I'm currently looking for an older version to see if that works. One of the reasons I bought this machine (2), was so my wife could Skype her family. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Are you downloading the Skype app from the AppStore? Where are you looking for an older version? The AppStore only allows you to install the newest version, so there is shouldn't be any way of installing an older version.

    It doesn't make sense that the Skype app wouldn't respond to touch commands, as the app is built from ground up to support touch commands.

    What you could try is, is restarting Skype. (press the home button twice to enter the multitasking bar, press and hold your finger on the Skype icon until they start wiggling, then press on the red x). Now restart Skype and see if it works.

    Ok. I Tories turning iPad off after downloading, but did not solve issue. It respond to "cancel" and "create account", but not "sign in" I'll try your deal.
    thanks

    Have you entered your Skype account details first?

    Sign In will not work, unless you have filled out the username and password fields.
