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.

Hi, I cannot believe Skype for iPad went through a major update and the bluetooth keyboard issue highlighted in this thread ( 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:
