    Anyone tried skype with ipad2
    With the cameras not getting great reviews in ipad2 I wondered if anyone had tried using skype video calls.It would be great for portability on the calls if the image was acceptable.

    The still pictures is what they say aren't very good. Reports have said the video is good.
    60% of the time it works every time.

    I haven't found a good Skype app yet. I tried the one for the iPhone but it doesn't work great IMO.

    Skype doesn't have an iPad version yet so you'd have to use the iPhone version which isn't going to look very good.

    I've used Skype for iPhone on my iPad2... Image quality is actually pretty decent for having it doubled to fill the screen.

    It still looks really good, and the folks on the other end see me no problem.

    Of course if they had a dedicated iPad App it would be a lot better.

    Can a person without an iPad use the Facetime app on their PC?
