Skype for iPad even the latest version has serious bug. It will logoff spontaneously without your knowledge after you close the app for some time, though iOS setting of Skype is automatic login ON and never offline. Under this status, nobody can call you and Skype becomes useless. Hope the Skype people can have feedback on this problem and fix it as soon as possible.
Hello, Larry, the Staff Moderator of Skype, thank you for moving my topic from the forum of Community feedback to the forum of iPad. Please have response and answer to this problem or inform the Skype developer and technicians to fix this problem as it affects all users of Skype for iPad.
