    Default iPad apps to make cheap/free calls

    We will be leaving for our 5th trip to CN on July 9th. I have been looking for an app for my iPad so I can call my kids while we are gone. I've used skype on my laptop before but there is no app for skype on the iPad. Any suggestions - besides not calling at all - that is not an option for us! Thanks!

    Hey if you have an Ipad2 and a mac at home use Facetime app. But it only works with Ipad2

    If they have an iphone/ipad/ipod touch you can use facetime.

    The Skype iPhone app works fine on the iPad2. It even uses the front camera for video calls.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions! The grandparents don't have i-anything (just Dell) so that's not an option.
    johnandbecky - I'm going to try your suggestion. Thanks! Hopefully it'll work for us....we'll see...

    There is an app called iCall that we have used. Works pretty good and it is free.

    There is a yahoo messenger app too that would let you video chat for free.
