  1. Denmark says:

    any idea if it will work both 3G/wifi?

  2. wait, it wasn’t available before? what does ipad do anyway??

    • nope. it was only for the ipod touch and iphone before. now its optimized for the bigger screen.

      • Technically all iPod touch/iPhone apps are available to the iPad as well. You can browse, buy and download iPhone apps in your iPad through its ‘App Store’ app. In fact, Yahoo! Messenger was one of the first apps I installed when I got my original iPad last year. It was just updated to be a ‘universal app’ which means its now optimized to run on both the iPhone/Ipod touch and iPad.

  3. the mic and earphones are not working for ipad 2. they still have to fix this technical bug
