New Fring For iPhone Has 3G Video Chat Support
Few days ago Fring released new update for their iPhone app. Now it supports multitasking and, what is more important, 3G video calling via front facing video camera. With new Fring you can make video calls to anyone who has the same app installed on his device (and that must not be necessarily iPhone).
9to5mac already tested this new function and found that the quality of video leaves much to be desired, though over WiFi it's a bit clearer (that is why Apple didn't make 3G support for FaceTime). In some situations video call over 3G didn't have any audio streaming, so the interlocutor could not be heard.
It is important to notice that video chatting is available on Fring via your Skype account. So after the release many people downloaded the new version of app and started to actively use it. And guess what? The next day Fring has pulled access to Skype abilities from the application. Here is an official answer to those of the clients who asked the company for the comments:
It is clear, that the problem is not with Skype or any third party's applications, but with Fring's internal ecosystem. We hope the problem will be solved soon.
Meanwhile, you can download new version of Fring for free
