fring Goes Live for iOS 4 Today

fring announced today that it now provides iphone users unrestricted 2-way video calling over WiFi or 3G internet with other iPhone, Android or Symbian devices. This newest iteration of fring allows iPhone users the same capabilities that millions of fringsters are already enjoying. The app gives you the freedom to video call any friend across different mobile platforms from anywhere.

“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” said Avi Shechter, fring’s Co-Founder and CEO. “We’re proud to facilitate this face-to-face mobile communication experience among friends wherever they are and wherever their friends are on smartphones.”

In addition to 2-way video calls for iOS 4, the latest version of fring offers up several other features:

  • Multitasking – Users can be “always on” and available to friends. fring will run in the background even as other iPhone services/apps run so that you are alerted to new video calls or chat without proactively opening fring.
  • Social Stream – This is a chronological stream of all tweets, Facebook updates, chats and calls all in one place. It has easy cross-community communication and simple sorting capabilities.
  • Smarter Address Book – Manage your buddy list, merge contacts and more in an instant – and without needing to read through an owner’s manual.

If you’re not on the FaceTime bandwagon (or want to video call someone who doesn’t have the iPhone 4), you may want to take a look at fring.
