Need Sipdroid VOIP equivalent for the iPad 2

Looking for Android Sipdroid VOIP equivalent for the iPad 2? More inside...

On my HTC Incredible, I've got Sipdroid running and it works great. When I'm out of the country, my family can call my local Google Voice number which I have forwarded to an Sipgate phone number that is run in partnership with I can receive and make voip calls on my Droid via wifi when I'm out of the country for just pennies as long as I have a wifi connection.

Now I've got an iPad 2 and am trying to set up the same thing. Ideally, all I would need to do is find an Sipdroid equivalent app client that I would then enter the appropriate information and, boom goes the dynamite, it works.

Since I'm new to Apple and the iPad, I'm not familiar with anything like this.

Sipgate appears to have a native iPhone app. Would this work for you?

Response by poster: @bonehead - I saw that Sipgate has an iPad app out there (after I posted). It looks like it would work on paper. Looks to me that it should work just fine since my Google Voice number actually forwards to my Sipgate number anyway.

I don't have my iPad with me at the moment to download and try it out as I'm at work. When I get home I'll give it a try and report back for others that may stumble upon this thread.

Now if Sipgate would just make an Android app as well...

Response by poster: @bitdamaged - how exactly do you do this with Skype? Please elaborate.

Response by poster: Update: Sipgate iPad app worked great while on vacation. Our wifi was spotty, but when it worked, so did my VOIP setup.
