Now a day the whole story turned in a bad shape when Skype called their company “cowards” and blocked it. It is claimed by Fring. While Skype claimed that two of them are talking in this matter but Fring not telling the truth that without any warning Fring withdraw their support over Skype on IOS 4 for video call. There is a battle for mobile phone between the mobile messaging and the VoIP market. It would be very good if the entire CIP client like Skype, Fring, Truphone come together and support face time.
