Skype App For iPad Goes Live Again

Skype App For iPad Goes LiveLadies and gentlemen, the incredible disappearing Skype for iPad!

Web-calling giant Skype released its first made-for-iPad app, only to pull it hours later, apologizing via Twitter that it “went live prematurely,” only to once again release it hours after that. (See the apologetic tweets here and here)

Though Skype already has apps available on the iPhone and iTouch that can be used on the iPad, it had yet to put out a native app for the Apple tablet–until now. According to the iTunes preview page, the app makes calls over both 3G and WiFi and offers big picture video calling currently unavailable on the iPad:Skype had posted a promotional video outlining the benefits of Skype, but it was since pulled; a reader of the Apple blog RazorianFly, however, captured the video (no audio) and uploaded it to YouTube. Have fun guessing what the couple in the video are saying to each other:
