Yesterday we posted a great and in depth article about the new Fring for iPhone, and we featured our experiences about using Skype with it. Today, the company has pulled access to Skype video and voice calling from the application. Although this is temporary, it is a big deal as it is not isolated to iOS but is something occurring across the Fring app ecosystem. 

Readers have reached out to Fring for comment and the company left the following official statement on their website:


This official statement clearly shows the company’s push towards users utilizing Fring’s internal system and not third party’s. We hope Skype and other clients follow in their footsteps and allow video conferencing in their official apps very soon.
