The company behind the mobile application fring says it’s the first to bring 3G video and internet calls to the iPhone. “Immediately after Apple permits VoIP applications, fring gives users the freedom to call, video call, chat and more over 3G!,” said an excited fring spokesman.
The move follows Apple’s decision to allow third party VoIP applications running over 3G networks into its iPhone App Store.
iPhone users have been able to use fring on WiFi internet connections since it launched on the iPhone App Store back in April 2008.
“This announcement means iPhone fring users can now make free voice and video calls over 3G or Wi-Fi internet access, and, depending on their access and preferences at any given time, easily switching between the two to stay connected any time, anywhere,” the spokesman added.
“fring also allows users to call their friends on Skype, GoogleTalk and MSN, as well as Skype-Out and “hundreds of popular SIP services”.
