    Is there a way to use a bluetooth microphone instead of the built-in mic when recording video? Is there an app that allows this? I've researched and couldn't find an answer. I'm sure it's an Apple limitation on bluetooth. Maybe iOS 5 will change that, but most likely not.

    Jambox has a built-in Bluetooth mic that I've used with Skype. Haven't tried with video. Might work.

    How did you do this? Last time I checked Skype did not support Bluetooth. ??? I have a Jambox but must connect by wire to Skype with it.

    I never gave it a thought, and just tried it again. I connected the JB to my iPad, then started Skype, and it worked....sound and the built in mic. To use the mic you do have to press the talk button., but it worked.

    Let's be clear here. When you say "connected" do you mean with the supplied plug in connector wire or paired as a wireless Bluetooth speaker?

    No, connect via Bluetooth before starting Skype.

    Sorry, but Skype does not support Bluetooth on the iPad. I just tried it again and read on the Skype support site that it doesn't work with Bluetooth devices. You must have the magic touch. From the Skype support site:

    The following features are not currently supported:

    Sending files
    Group video calling
    Importing contacts from native iPad Contacts
    Showing favorite contacts
    Bluetooth devices

    Good news! The latest Skype for iPad update added Bluetooth for the ipad2. Skype can now be used with my Jambox without the wire. Yay!

    Does that mean we can now use a bluetooth headset including the micro, fully functional, directly on the ipad 2 with applications like skype ?? Or do you still need the Jambox ?

    thank you

    I would assume that any Bluetooth device would work if it is discoverable by the iPad. I can only speak for the Jambox speaker that I own. The problem in the past was that the Skype app was not set up for any Bluetooth device to work with it.

    Skype supports the Jabra Easygo BT headset, as well as allowing the BT Apple keyboard to share the connection.

    KevinJS:

    Are you saying that you can use the Jabra headset, wirelessly - and be able to talk and hear (on Skype) using just the headset?

    As in, you're not using the iPad microphone? As in, I could/can move away from the iPad and still be able to talk/hear on Skype?

    Thanks in advance for any answer.

    That is correct. However, I was only able to check audio, so I don't know whether the Jabra will work with a video call.

    When you switch to BT the iPad speaker is muted, btw.

    The interesting thing about the Jabra is that it supports two devices simultaneously. I usually use it for my iPhone and work phone, but switched it over for the purpose of this conversation. $48 from Walmart and it works a treat.

    The Jabra works with Skype, no need to be in sight of the iPad.

    I can' t make Jabra EASYGO works with Skype-iPad2

    Hi guys...

    Just bought and iPad2 and tried to make it work with my Jabra Easygo.

    I can pair the two bluetooth devices but it won't work when I make Skype calls.

    Is there any setting I have to adjust in order to do that??


    Tks

    It should work. I have the same setup. The Jabra will not handle Skype video though.
