    Does anyone here run skype on a tablet or have suggestions on what to get to do it?

    My situation: computers have aged beyond support and are too expensive to replace with new, so I’m considering alternatives. Smart phones are too small & expensive by far for me, for lessons…

    Using skype is the only reason I need a new device.

    I need the capacity to save the calls (at leat to a thumbdrive).

    Will Wifi work as well as cable on video calling?

    Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey Dave…

    There is a skype app for ipad.  It should work well.  I don’t know about saving the sessions with Skype though.

    Wifi works well if you have enough speed.  Depending on your data plan with your cell provider, you can add your ipad to your cellphone data and just use it.

    Who are you taking your Skype lessons with?  How do you like it?

    I’m not taking anything yet…don’t have the equipment…

    I’m hoping to get lessons with Patrick McAvinue…

    Don’t think I’d want to run a data plan with ATT…they are EXtraspensive…

    I took banjo lessons from two instructors several years ago over skype and it work quite well with one…the other didn’t have a good connection and it did not work well.

    that sounds great..Patrick is a great fiddle player.  I looked at taking from a couple of fiddlers I’d love to learn from…uh….$90 PER LESSON!!  can’t justify that kind of money!

    This won’t be quite that much, but I am having to save for it…
