Skype yanked from app stores in China

China is cracking down on Skype. Apple has yanked the online video calling app and other voice over internet protocol (VoIP) products from its App Store in China."We have been notified by the Ministry of Public Security that a number of VoIP apps do not comply with local law, therefore these apps have been removed from the App Store in China," Apple said in a statement on Wednesday. "These apps remain available in all other markets where they do business."

The video chat and messaging app is also unavailable on major third-party Android app stores, like the ones run by Chinese smartphone makers Huawei and Xiaomi. The New York Times was the first to report the news.
