A report from TechCrunch claims SHAPE Services, the company that develops the IM+ messaging client, has bought CrispApp. CrispApp produces fone, an iOS application for chatting and making voice calls to your Facebook friends.
SHAPE plans to take the technology behind the fone app and merge it with CrispApp’s video technology to create IM+ Video. This new app will let users make voice and video calls to your Facebook friends. Calls will be free of charge and will let you make mobile to mobile and mobile to desktop calls. The Facebook video calling app could debut in the App Store within the next 10 days.
