Fring is a nice piece of chat software. It lets users hold video conferences with each other and can let both Android and iOS users chat, regardless of which mobile OS they are using. This even works over 3G. Now, users across all platforms can enjoy group video chat with Fring. That’s right, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android users can get together and talk in a group chat.
We’re sure it’s more useful with the iPad 2 as doing this on iPhone or iPod touch would probably mean very small pictures of each participant.
Here’s a bullet point list from the App Store page:
* FREE The worlds 1st Group Video Chat. 4 friends video chat at the same time!
* FREE Video calls (on 3G,4G & WiFi) with DVQ‚Äö√ë¬¢ technology (more below)
* FREE calls to other fring users worldwide
* FREE live chat (no more expensive SMS)
The ultimate in Video Chat optimized for iPhone, iPad and iPodTouch
GROUP VIDEO CHAT
The ONLY Group Video chat app. Group Video with friends on iPhone/iPod/iPad or Android phones. Up to 4 participants can group video call, jam, reunite, sing, dance or whatever you do when you get together. 4 friends on 1 screen.
Later in the description, they are careful to specify that they are the only free group video chat. That’s still a good thing. We don’t know that we’d have much use for it. It’s hard enough to find one friend who wants to video conference, but we suppose there are people out there who don’t mind being on the camera.
