Fring Takes On Facetime With Updated App

Fring has released an updated version of a smartphone application that allows two-way video calling over 3G and Wi-Fi networks, technology news website PC Mag has reported.

The application is designed to run on Android, Symbian and iPhone devices and provides support for social networking sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instant Messaging.

Avi Shechter, co-founder and CEO of Fring, said: "We are thrilled to bring iPhone users unrestricted video calling with all their friends and family. Ever since we launched the world's first mobile video calling last year, we see millions of users thirsty to share richer communication experiences."

“We're proud to facilitate this face-to-face mobile communication experience among friends wherever they are and wherever their friends are,” added Schechter.

Following the release of the new two-way calling application, Israel-based Fring announced on a blog post that it had to temporarily shut down its support for Skype as the system had overloaded.
