Did Apple approve it too fast?


Skype reportedly released their iPad app after a very long time, allowing audio and video calls over Wi-Fi and 3G. But within a few hours, the app was pulled back and the reason given on their twitter account was:

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

Wonder how Apple will take that. FYI, Skype was recently acquired by Microsoft.
