Fring announced a major new update to their iPhone application. The new update supports iPhone 4’s front facing video camera for two way video chats as well as multitasking for iOS 4.
With the new fring for iPhone you get lots of fring goodies including 2 way video-calling where you want and with whom you want!
• Face-to-face video calls with friends on their Droids, Nokia (Symbian S60) and other iPhones
• Video calls over 3G or Wi-Fi (Performance over 3G is subject to mobile operators’ 3G coverage & quality)
Use that fancy new front-facing camera for video calls from the beach or from the mountain top (on 3G or Wifi) to your friends on whatever mobile phone they have. So even if they don’t have an iPhone 4 yet, you can see their pretty faces.
The neat thing about Fring is its lack of restrictions, meaning you can two-way video chat with any device running Fring and a front facer. Fring shows this in action below:
Also, the latest fring for iOS4 on iPhone 3GS & 4 includes loads of improved features including:
• Multitasking so you can be always on and available with fring running in the background and alerting you to new video calls, voice calls or chat without proactively opening fring (just like on all other supported phones).
• New Social Stream: A chronological stream of all tweets, facebook updates, chats and calls, all in one place! Easy cross-community communication and simple sorting capabilities.
• A Smarter address book: simply manages your buddy list, merges contacts and more.
