Good day!

Everytime I want to chat to somebody I cannot See the textfield what i am currently writing to somebody. The textfield is simply behind the Keyboard. So I cannot see what I am writing.

It's simple to fix the issue. Just split the keyboard by using both thumb or hold down the keyboard bottom right key (undock) you will find the split function. After split the keyboard just combine back the keyboard and you will notice the issue is fixed. 

Hope this help :happy:

Guys, I was trying to search the net for this problem about hours ago and can't find any solution from the internet. This problem is present even in facebook and yahoo messenger, and after some thought I discovered the solution. There seems to be a bug in the keyboard split feature.

SOLUTION: just disable the split keyboard in general settings and it will work perfectly fine now. By the way I'm using ipad mini. Spread the word so everyone need not worry about this.

Re: Problems in using Skype with iPad Mini

I was having an 'initializing' error on both IPad Mini and IPad. Not sure if yours is the exactly the same problem but try this:

1. find a computer (i.e. not your ipad) with Skype loaded.

2.  Start Skype & log in

3. Add your contacts. Even if already added on IPad. Add them on the computer.

4. You may or may not need to change your privacy settings depending on your preferences.

 

Apparently just adding them from the IPad does not work. You can voice call but not video until you add the contacts from a computer. I think it is related to a compatibility issue with Outlook as per something I read about Outlook & IPad. I had never used Skype from a computer and was adding my contacts on the IPad.

Mine is now working

Re: Problems in using Skype with iPad Mini

Well, I'm not sure wth that, but have you tried going to people and then pressing on their picture. It tells you to either message them, video call them, normal call them, or more. If that doesn't work then I'm awfully sorry, I can't help you. By the way guys, if u like horror be my friend! Sucka b z!
