Yahoo! Messenger brings cross-platform video calling to iPad 2

Fans of the Yahoo! Messenger messaging platform can now enjoy video calling on iPad 2. The version 2.1 update, now available free from the App Store, is a universal binary that supports both the iPhone’s smaller screen and iPad’s larger canvas. The 21.7MB download has been optimized for Apple’s slate, iTunes description says, adding iPad-optimized layout plus voice and video calling on the device.

The program also features stronger anti-spam features letting you block one or all add requests from a single view. iPad 2 users don’t have a lot of video calling choices apart from Apple’s FaceTime and a few less fancy programs. Yahoo! Messenger is a very popular cross-platform communications platform, meaning iPad 2 people can now enjoy video calling with their PC and Mac counterparts.
