Skype 3.8 for iPad with improved retina graphics

We've just released a new optimized version of Skype for iPad - especially for those of you with the latest iPad. The new version of Skype 3.8 for iPad makes use of the new iPad's improved retina display, so Skype looks even better than before.

We recommend that everyone upgrades to the newly released Skype for iPad application from the Apple App Store. We are always interested in hearing your feedback, so please report any issues here on the Skype Support Network.

Re: Skype 3.8 for iPad with improved retina graphics

Skype is an absolute joke.

Before being concerned with taking advantage of the new Ipads features. Why dont you concentrate on making Skype stable. There are so many concerns raised here time and time again but all of the updates dont address any of them.

For example: the issue with the bluetooth only working for one call.There are many points on this but it has simply been ignored.

Skype for the pc is a fantastic piece of software.Skype for the ipad is pants and about as much use as a hole in a bucket.

Re: Skype 3.8 for iPad with improved retina graphics

Hi, I cannot believe Skype for iPad went through a major update and the bluetooth keyboard issue highlighted in this thread (http://community.skype.com/t5/iPad/3-7-I-cant-sent-message-by-pressing-enter-on-bluetooth-keyword/td... has still not been rectified. I mean, this is a FEATURE YOU CAN TOGGLE on the PC version and it worked absolutely fine before 3.7, how much effort can this really take? Makes you wonder if anyone even reads this feedback. Reminds me of this post: 9gag.com/gag/3567722

I just bought the new iPad for the sole purpose to Skype with family and friends. I can't get any video calls to go through. Help!

Downloaded 3.8 from the app store, what got installed was 3.7.61 (based on the about page). What gives? I have iPad 3. Thanks.
