Why don't Apple support Skype?

Why don't Apple support Skype like they supports twitter and soon Facebook

Because Skype support Skype, they wrote/own it not Apple.
If you are having problems with Skype on your iPod Touch look on thier support forums to see if there's a fix or someone who can help you there.
If your question is why you can't use FaceTime to contact a Skype contact you can't but, have you searched the App Store for Skype and downloaded the App, it works like a dream.
Cheers

  • Why doesn't Apple support Adobe Flash Player?

    Why doesn't Apple support Adobe Flash Player?
    I recently traveled out of the country with a large group and we are sharing our photos on Snapfish and I need Adobe Flash Player to download them to my IPAD. Help!

    No Flash for iPads, iPhones, or iPods
    Here's why there's is no Flash available for iDevices or other mobile devices. Adobe was unable to provide a product that was suitable to the needs of battery powered mobile devices used for Internet browsing. Existing Flash technology used too much memory, ate battery life, and was buggy. Simply put Flash did not work well on mobile devices.
    Apple's Steve Jobs led the escape from Flash dependency when Apple introduced the iPhone, and later introduced the iPad. There was a hue and cry over the omission. Time proved Jobs was right on target.
    So this is why there is no Flash for your iPhone or iPad or iPod nor for most SmartPhones. Flash has been abandoned by many sites in favor of supported technologies such as HTML5 or by providing their own custom app.
    Here is Steve Jobs official comment on his momentous decision to omit Flash from iDevices: Steve Jobs on Flash.
    Here is Adobe's later announcement to cease development of Flash for mobile devices: Adobe on Mobile Flash. Adobe is not providing Flash for Apple iOS devices, and they no longer provide Flash for any other cellular phones. Flash is officially gone.
    Now, you are not necessarily out on a limb. There are some apps that can display some Flash, but don't count on there ability to display anything using Flash.
    A sample of Apps that can display some Flash content:
      1. Puffin
      2. SkyFire
      3. Photon Flash
      4. Browse2Go
      5. Swifter
    Also, note that many sites that use Flash provide their own app for accessing their material. So check with your favorite sites and find out if "there's an app for that."

  • Why won`t apple support siri on iphone 4 ?

    Why won't apple support siri on iphone 4 ?

    We are just users like you. So we can't answer that question. However, there are hundreds of posts about it, so a search of the forum might be enlightening.
    The iPhone 4 is four generations out of date. Have you noticed that when any company releases a new product or version of a product it has features that previous versions did not? If it didn't then what would be the point of coming out with a new version?

  • Why won't Apple support printing to mobile 3 rd party printers

    Why won't Apple support printing to mobile 3 rd party printers

    It's up to the printer manufacturer to provide an app for printing from. Many do, and any support AirPrint which is what iOS devices use for printing.
    It's not Apple's job to create printer drivers for every third party printer on the market. Printer manufacturers provide drivers with their products.

  • Why doesn't Apple support Adobe Flash player on the iPad?  Very irritating!

    Why doesn't Apple support Adobe Flash player on the iPad?  Very irritating!

    Look to the right under More Like This and you will see that you are beating a dead horse. Instead of doing a search for your issue you will be one of the obligatory 5 or 6 folks who ask this same inane question here every bloody day.
    So there is you answer, just read a few of the links to the scores of other threads here on this very topic and you will have all of the answers. The primary one being that there is no Flash from Adobe for iOS devices. Never has been, and since Adobe gave up trying to make Flash that worked, likely never will be.

    Why don't Apple introduces siri in India?

    The terms of service forbid us from speculating about what Apple might do, or why they do what they do.
    But here's a listing of what iOS 6 features are available in what countries:

  • Why don't apple invent an iPad Note with a pen?

    Why don't apple invent an iPad Note with a pen like Samsung Note? we really new one from apple design specially students.

    I do not understand?  You can readily use a stylus with an iPad now (I do) and there are many note taking apps that allow free form handwriting and drawing,  (TopNotes, Notebook+, Notes Plus to name just three I am familiar with).  There are also several apps that do handwriting recognition and convert your printed or written words to text (I have WritePad for that, works very well).
    What is that you think is lacking with an iPad now?

  • Why won't Apple support Flash?

    I posted this same question on an Adobe Flash forum and the answer I got was that Apple has to approve Flash for its operating system.
    If this is true, why won't Apple do this? Not supporting it means we, the customers, lose out on a great deal of internet content--which we simply can't view in the Safari mobile browser.
    Best, David

    In either case, I and other users seem to be on the loosing end of things. 
    David.
    Please show us where we might see a copy of the Adobe Flash Player for IOS then, and we will know who's the chicken, and who's the egg.

  • Why doesn't Apple support iSync any more?

    Apple hasn't added any additional cell phone support in iSync since 10.4 was released. If I want iSync support with my Verizon service, I have a choice of three phones (out of FIFTY) -- and two of those phones cost over $150, and the third is about as low-end as you can get. No Chocolate, no V-Cast, NOTHING. Apple wants the Mac to be the center of my digital lifestyle, so why isn't Apple working towards that goal?

    "Apple hasn't added any additional cell phone support in iSync since 10.4 was released."
    Yes, they have.
    For Sony Ericsson phones, Mac OS X 10.4.3 added K750, D750, K600, W600 and Z520 support, Mac OS X 10.4.6 added W600 & W900 support, and Mac OS X 10.4.7 added Z530 & W810 support.
    Many other manufacturers phones had support added in the iSync 2.2 and iSync 2.3 updates part of Mac OS X 10.4.6 and 10.4.7 respectively.
    If Verizon offers a poor selection of phones, then maybe you should look for another network provider. Apple has no control over the handsets each network provider offers.
    The LG Chocolate phone (like all other LG, Samsung etc.) phones uses a proprietary syncing protocol, unlike Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Motorola, who all use the industry standard SyncML.
    You should direct your comments towards the mobile phone manufacturers who repeatedly refuse to build support for industry standards into thier phones, and refuse to provide Mac syncing support like they do for Windows.
    Why do you think Apple should provide support for other manufacturers phones? Microsoft doesn't do it for Windows... the phone manufacturers do.
    Apple have provided the system-level SyncServices framework which allows third-party device manufacturers to create iSync plugins for their phones. It is hardly Apple's fault if certain manufacturers choose not to.
    So, complain to your network provider or phone manufacturer - not Apple.

  • Why don't Apple open an Apple Store in Myanmar!

    Apple is missing lots of fans. I want to know why don't open a Store in Myanmar.

    We are not Apple. We are users, just like you. Apple doesn't read every complaint on these forums. They probably read hardly any of them. All I can say is that they cannot open a store everywhere, but they are still building new stores. Maybe you will have an Apple Store near you in a few years.

  • Why isn't apple support calling me?

    I scheduled a phone call with apple support for 9:30 am. I got a phone call at 9:33, with a recorded voice asking me to press 1 to speak to a support person. I pressed 1 and waited on the line. After many minutes of complete silence on the line from Apple, my call was disconnected.
    I scheduled another phone call with apple support for 9:45 am. It's now 10:13 and no one has called me!
    Hello????

    We are not Apple, only your fellow end-users. Anything someone posts here about Apple's support workload and scheduling would be pure speculation.

  • Why don't apple have 4 weekly appointments on their calendar

    Why doesn't Apple have 4 weekly repeats in their calendar? 

    As far I know Apple haven't said (you can do it as 'custom' repeat on a Mac) - you can try leaving feedback for Apple and maybe in a future update it'll be added : http://www.apple.com/feedback/ipad.html

  • Why don't apple add animated gifs support on their products

    It's so annoying that their products still don't support animated gifs it will be great if they added this feature. And it will be great if they add Bluetooth file share.

  • Given the size and of the iPad Mini Wider is better. Why don't Apple design the next iPhone to be a bit wider?

    After using one of the competition's wide screen phone, I found myself using it more then my iPhone. Though it wasn't as good of a user experience as my iPhone, the wider viewing display grabbed my attention. Viewing video content on their wider phones, sadly is much better in my opinion. The reason, the content that display at an 16x9 ratio. Wider is the way to go, truth to this is found in Reviews regarding the new iPad mini. The iPad mini has been said to have a perfect size screen when viewing content and playing Multitouch games. It has a better screen resolution as compared to it competitor. The iPad 3 and 4 have gorgeous Retina displays. Why not have a wider iPhone that's both thin and wider so we can enjoy our digital media we've purchased from Apple to have that same comfort level we get from the iPad? Having a display to be available at a resolution that's at a 16x9 Ratio is better regarding content. I love the iPhone, we need to finally go wider on the iPhone. Content viewing is being effected by the screen size on such a magnificent device. If Apple posted up a vote regarding their content displayed on their iOS devices, I'm sure people would agree that the resolution found on the iPad and iPad mini are much superior when viewing Apple's video content then from what you get from both the iPhone and iPod Touch. Not because they are smaller, it's the width of the screen then the mire size. Apple's video content is around about an 16x9 ratio as like most if not all of the content found on iTunes and the Apps store. I've found myself wanting an iPad mini as a substitute to my iphone. Wider viewing is best for Apple's video content, working documents and game play. I would surely be happier with a wider screen phone then to travel with both devices to be able to enjoy my media.

    I don't know why you wasted your time and bothered to post this in a user to user technical forum.
