Fring app enables Two-way Video calling with iPhone 4 over 3G Network

July 16, 2010

Fring is a mobile application that lets you make free video calls, free voice calls and live IM chats directly from your iPhone and iPod touch. Now there is new updated version of Fring which allows user to make two-way video calls right from their iPhone 4.

The Fring app uses iPhone 4’s front facing camera for making facetime video calls to other mobile phones.

With Fring app, users can make video calls over Wi-Fi and also 3G carrier network. Even it also allows face-to-face video calls with friends on their Droids, Nokia (Symbian S60) and other iPhones so users can do video call with friends who don’t have iPhone 4.

The Fring app also supports iOS 4 multitasking features so you can run it in the background and will alert you when there is any new video or voice call or chat without proactively opening Fring, just like on all other supported phones.
