As posted by Skype on its official Twitter account about two hours ago, they pulled out the Skype for iPad app and apologized to their customers after it was launched yesterday, Monday, August 1.

“To ensure your best Skype experience, we’ve temporarily removed Skype for iPad which went live prematurely today.” Skype (@Skype) tweeted.

“We know you’ve been eagerly awaiting Skype for iPad and apologize for the inconvenience.” Skype tweeted right after their first tweet.

Apparently, this Skype for iPad app was created to offer their customers the video calling support via 3G and WiFi, as well as IM and voice calls, and also to call mobile devices as well as landline phones.

This app requires iOS 4.0 or higher and is applicable to both versions of iPad although the front and back video chat is only for iPad 2 since the first iPad has only one camera.

Skype also posted a YouTube video about this app last June but was immediately set to private, with Skype now not saying as to when this free Skype for iPad App will be fully launched.
