I have an iPad and don't use it much for Skyping, but out of curiosity I too have tried to find how to add a a contact.  I've been unsuccessful.  

 

What I do is manage my Contacts list and other settings via Skype running in Windows.   The Mac version would work for that too.

 

If you don't have a PC or Mac available to make it easy to add contacts, I hope someone else will come along here with a solution for the iPad.  I'm suspecting at this time the iPad app doesn't yet have the add-a-contact feature. 

 

edit:  Once contacts are added, the Contacts lists on the iPad shows up in a column to the left of the main window.  When the Skype app is first started, the main window shows "Lists,"  All Contacts, iPad Contacts; Online Contacts; Saved Phone Numbers; Skype Contacts. 

 

I usually tap Online Contacts but I still see no way to add a Skype contact in the app.
