fring Video Calling Over 3G on iPhone 4

iPhone_Evo_Video.png It was just a matter of time before fring updated their iPhone app to take advantage of the iPhone 4's front-facing camera. That day has arrived! With the new fring for iPhone you get 2 way video-calling not just with other iPhone users, but also friends on their Droids or Nokia (Symbian S60) phones.

It supports video calls over 3G as well as Wi-Fi, though obviously performance over 3G isn't as good as Wi-Fi.

Multitasking support is in the new version 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.

It also has a new "Social Stream" feature, which is a chronological stream of all tweets, facebook updates, chats and calls. While the social media stuff is nice to have, the video calling is the killer feature. In fact, it blows FaceTime away because it works over 3G (FaceTime doesn't) and fring can call other mobile phone platforms (FaceTime doesn't). Definitely a must-have app for your iPhone 4!

You can check out my review of fring running on an iPhone 3GS using an older version of fring. Or even better, check out this video demo of the new fring running on an iPhone.
