Skype shutting down 3rd-party apps in December

skypeEngadget is reporting that Skype (read Microsoft) is rewriting the aging API for renewed focus on mobile platforms.  What does that mean for webOS users and our beloved Synergy Skype integration?  Well, we don’t really know just yet.  What we do know is that M$ has a history of killing support for things it no longer deems worthy of support.  The long list includes Windows Phone 7.  That does not bode well for we the users of webOS and our integrated Skype support.  Should the unthinkable happen and our front-facing-camera-having TouchPads and Pre3s no longer retain Skype access one can only hope the webOS community comes to the rescue to once again save ourselves from an early and altogether too-soon demise.  Here’s hoping.  For now, enjoy it while you have it.  Further bulletins as they develop!
