fring has been approved by Apple, and is now available for iPhone and iPod devices, from the App Store.
Fring will allow iPhone and iPod users to enjoy live, mobile instant messaging with friends, no matter what device their contacts are using, and benefit from cheaper calls over WiFi.
Service users, called ‘fringsters’, can chat with contacts on their favourite online community, including Skype, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ, Twitter, Yahoo! and AIM, no matter where they are.
Fring released a preview version of its iPhone application in April, which was the first ever mobile VoIP app to appear on the iPhone.
An outstanding response to the application was received and fring has used feedback to develop the new version now launched on the Apple App Store, which features a new dialer screen and fring Add-ons menu.
Fring is free to download and use without any subscription fees.
