Skype released an iPad app and then pulled it from the App Store, saying it wasn’t ready, AllThingsD’s Ina Fried writes.That’s weird. 

The app works both over 3G and Wifi, so it sounds really useful.

Maybe they suddenly found a terrible bug. Or maybe they found out something in the app store terms of service. Or maybe they just wanted to do a big launch hoopla (in which case–congratulations). 

A spokesman said the app would be re-released soon.
