The Fring Android App by fring allows you to make video calls and chat over a 3G, 4G or WiFi connection. You can use most chat clients and Social Networks such as MSN MessengerÂ®, GoogleTalkâ„¢, AIMÂ®, ICQÂ® , FacebookÂ® and Twitter all with the same app. Basically Fring consolidates all of your contacts from your chat clients and Social Networks and puts them all in one place for easy access to communicating with your contacts.
Fring also offers free mobile and video calls as long as the other person is also using Fring (same idea as Skype). You can also make fringOut calls world wide with prices per minute starting at $0.01. When I saw this I was kind of skeptical so I checkout out their rates on the Fring.com website and found this: http://www.fring.com/fringout/rates/. I was actually reallyÂ surprisedÂ at how cheap the International rates actually were. So the only thing left to check out at this point is the quality of actual calls.
The video calls are great and have pretty good quality. I especially like the size of the video window because it’s big enough to see the other person and yet not too big to where it’s difficult to access the controls for the app on the same screen. There is even enough room for a small window to see yourself so you can see what the other person can see and to make sure that they can see you. The phone calls are of good quality as well.
Overall, if you are looking for a good video call solution and/or cheaper way to make International calls I recommend checking out this app. At the time of this review the Fring Android App is free (call costs are extra as described above). Thumbs Up.
