Fring has become a pretty popular application, and while it has many worthy competitors, plenty of people still prefer this as application as their consolidated source of social connectivity. You may be happy to know that Fring now has an Android Application!
Here is how the company describes the app in their own words on Android Market:
Fring is a multi-award winning mobile application that lets users communicate directly from their mobile devices. Fring is the users’ mobile social hub. Talk & Chat with your friends on fring and other IM services & social networks: Skype, MSN, Messenger, GTalk, Twitter, yahoo!, AIM & ICQ all through one profile.
Based on the quick but limited response from Market reviews, Fring seems like it’ll be a pretty big hit on Android. The Android version works over 3G, GPRS and Wi-Fi and allows free VoIP calls over Skype, MSN and GoogleTalk via hundreds of SIP providers. Maybe Google should have bought Fring instead of Gizmo5!
There are a few known issues, so if the following 3 things frustrate you, know that they’re being worked on already:
- GSM contacts do not appear in fring’s buddy list on the Motorola DROID device
- Call disconnection tone may be heard a few times when terminating a call
- SIP and SkypeOut calls are not yet available on the Motorola DROID device
