Fring Launches New iPad App Featuring Video Calling Capabilities

Recently, fring announced the launch of its new application, Video Calls + IM for iPad, which is available at no cost. This app is notably the first on the iPad platform to enable group video calls for free, unlike Cisco’s WebEx, which also facilitates group video chats on the iPad but is targeted towards businesses and comes with a price tag.

The app, Video Calls + IM for iPad, is designed to be cross-platform, allowing communication across various devices including iPads, iPod touches, iPhones, and compatible Android and Nokia devices.

It operates seamlessly over Wi-Fi, 3G, and 4G networks, ensuring that users don’t suffer from connectivity issues. Additionally, it supports the sending of free instant messages to other devices, as suggested by its name.

The user interface of fring’s new app is user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing.

Adding participants to a conference call is straightforward with its drag-and-drop feature, and its visually appealing, easy-to-tap buttons cater to users who might not be as precise. It’s worth giving a shot, especially since we’re all anticipating the arrival of Skype on the iPad.
