First Skype giveth, then Skype taketh away. Then they… er… giveth backeth. The official Skype app has now gone live on the App Store, just hours after it was pulled by the developers.
“To ensure your best Skype experience, we’ve temporarily removed Skype for iPad, which went live prematurely today,” Skype said following the apps’ removal earlier this morning.
“We know you’ve been eagerly awaiting Skype for iPad and apologise for the inconvenience.”
Now good to grab once more, the app allows iPad 2 users to video chat over Wi-Fi and 3G with their tablets.
It’s a familar blue and green interface for those who’ve used Skype in its many previous versions, though the ability to make video calls over a 3G connection gives it a much-needed edge over Apple’s native FaceTime chat app.
