    I tried searching this, but it's hard to explain this to google.

    I don't own a actual smart phone (black berry), and I am looking at windows phone.

    So my question is; does an app that has versions on multiple operating systems, also have integration with phones with different phone operating systems (ie. can I use skype on my WP with someone that has skype for android, or any game of the sort)?

    I understand this could be case by case or, not at all. I am confused and I hope the wording of that question didn't cause any headaches.

    Thanks in advance.

    Cross platform apps like Skype work on all phones across all platforms. Other apps and games can be cross platform meaning you can play head to head with people on Android and IOs but this is app specific. Usually apps that are cross platform have all the detail on there website.

    Never hesitate to ask a question that is why we are here we love to help.
