fring it on Android!

After weeks of speculation, rumors and alpha testing with our much-appreciated early access group, we are finally out with the 1st  ever fring for Android!

Android device users can now get onto fring (we know you’re been missing us since some of you recently switched to Android devices :-) ) with (the first) free VoIP calls over Skype, MSN and GoogleTalk and via hundreds of SIP providers. As always you can see real-time presence and live chat with your ICQ, Yahoo! And AIM buddies too. You can also use Twitter there, as part of  your integrated contact list.

fring on android works over 3G, GPRS or Wi-Fi internet connection.

androidDroid_skype-call_small

What do you need to do to get your hands on this brand-new version?

You have 2 simple options for getting fring onto your Android device:

1.    Get it directly from the Android Market:

•    Start the Market application on your phone

•    Search for fring and install

2.    Get it from fring’s WAP site:

•    On your Android phone, go to Settings > Applications and check the box to allow ’unknown sources

•    Point your phone browser to m.fring.com and download

A big thank you to our early access group for your invaluable feedback over the past few weeks!

Welcome to the big, happy, free fring family fringdroid-ers!

Known Issues (Will be fixed in the next version):

- GSM contacts do not appear in fring’s buddy list on the Motorola DROID device
- Call disconnection tone may be heard a few times when terminating a call
- SIP and SkypeOut calls are not yet available on the Motorola DROID device

    Can you place VOIP calls over T-Mobile USA 2G/3G network or does it require to use your minutes to call a local gateway?

    Come on guys. give us the barcode to scan. much easier to scan the barcode than to type in the search. I know I am lazy but it is the one way you are assured that I find your app the first time and not someone else’s.

    Hear, hear! This should be common practice whenever any company or individual is talking about their app. In these days of barcode scanners, leaving the barcode out is almost as silly as leaving out the name of the app!

    First voip app on android, such a good news. Just installed Fring on my G1, and compare the iPhone version, i can’t direct call a phone number, only from contact list. Wish you could add this feature in the future version.

    Anyway that you would provide a direct link to the Fring .apk file so that we can download it and try it onto Android products like the Archos 5 Internet Tablet with Android which doesn’t yet come with the Marketplace. You could release it to http://appslib.com so we could be getting it there. But a direct link would be fine.

    Feature request: it looks like it logs out every time I push “home”. But the process is in the background, so why don’t you put any marks/sign in the notification bar like other apps do. If I hit again my fring icon, logs in again, like that process in the background doesn’t keeps me logged in…

    The guy in this video says, not very smartly, that he’s making a “Wi-Fi? 3G” call. There’s no such thing, and in fact, the difference between the two is the 90% reason why this is significant for Android phones — especially since Skype’s own Android application fails to place calls over Wi-Fi only connections.

    Naturally the major value of Wi-Fi calling is for traveling abroad without having to pay grossly inflated roaming charges.

    [Reply]

    anonymus Reply:

    No need to get petty. I guess he meant that you are able to make call over “WiFi / 3G”, like you can on other fring version for different platforms.

    [Reply]

    Paul Reply:

    Right. So your instructions to the universe are that any correction to a significant error is petty, and we all should live with the thought, as you wrote, “I guess he meant.”

    It is a favor when customers point out flaws to developers.

    All that needs to be done here (for this company to stay on-message) is to re-cut the video at that trouble spot (or spots) that refers to a “Wi-Fi 3G” call, which doesn’t exist and which takes this product off-message.

    I could do it in five minutes. I trust that this company has five minutes to spare, if they know how to also.

    [Reply]

    omri Reply:

    The problem is not editing the video – I know how to do it.
    You just can not upload the same video to youtube and have it stay with the same link.

    The thing is this: It doesn’t matter if it’s a WiFi call or 3G call…
    I’ll do another video and show you how it works with both cases… but you can try it yourself.

    I’m on Android Dev Phone 1 (HTC Dream) with Android 1.6 installed. Fring works, add-on connections to Google Talks, Yahoo messenger, and Twitter work. When I try Skype 9add-on, it attempts to connect indefinitely… well for several minutes and then says that connection failed. I’m positive that a supplied Skype username and password are correct.

    Great stuff! After a few minutes of use I already have some comments though:

    1. I don’t want to see my local phonebook on the list. Too much clutter.
    2. Scrolling performance sucks a bit.
    3. No facebook chat.
    4. Huge delay with receiving skype audio, a few times longer than sending it!

    Huge potential, I’ll definitely keep an eye on this app!

    There is an important and simple bug to fix. If the numbers stored in our phone contain spaces, for example to separate the counrtry code and the local prefix, it is impossible to call that number, at the moment we have to manually edit that number and delete the blank spaces. I think this is a simple fix and it is a must, becouse millions of poeple have millions of contact with blank spaces…

    Thanks…and good job!

    I have had a collegue who has been banging on about Fring and it’s lack of Android client, so I was quiet relieved when I saw that you have finally released one.

    The client looks, from first inspection to be very good, however I have two questions these are:

    1. Is there any way I can select the method of notification, ie can I switch the vibration alert off.

    2. Were is the Facebook addin, this client would be perfect if it had most of the features that Digsby has.

    Keep up the good work.

Now, Fring is widely available on a variety of phones including Windows Mobile devices, but still lacks a proper version for BlackBerry smartphones. It allows you to connect to plethora of IM services including Skype, MSN Google Talk, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM and even Twitter as well. The best part is Fring is completely free and provides you with a versatile app to make VoIP calls while on the go either through 3G or WiFi.

    Any comment on when SkypeOut is expected to work on DROID?

    It seems like Skype seems to be non-functional on both Nimbuzz and fring (despite claims otherwise) (at least on DROID). The first one to support Skype on DROID should be very well received.

    I guess I should qualify that I’m usually able to get Skype-to-Skype calls working OK with fring. Sometimes I have to start a text chat before the call will ring through. However, “SkypeOut” calls to phone numbers don’t work. The remote number rings, the remote user picks up, but the phone keeps ringing. Meanwhile, the remote user hears silence.

    Group chat (with Skype, at least) doesn’t work at all, and my “away” status doesn’t update. Until those are fixed, its almost unusable for me :(

    Other than that, my only complaint is the sending of “Take Skype mobile with fring http://www.fring.com/skype” to every conversation, and changing my status to “www.fring.com”. That’s uncool. I don’t actually want people to know I’m mobile… the entire point of having something like this (to me, anyway) is that I can work just like I’m at my desk, but I’m not. Having these messages/status sortof nullifies that.

    First of all, thanks for the great app – I’ve been waiting too long for it.

    I do have several annoying issues I’d like to pay your attention to:
    1. I’m an Israeli so I’m chatting with most of my friends in Hebrew. It seems that whatever service/add-on I’m trying to use (gtalk, msn, skype), the text I write in Hebrew doesn’t get in one piece to my friends (the sentences get copped up). English seems to works just fine.
    2. I tried the the calling my friends to the various services (gtalk, msn, skype). Msn calling doesn’t seem to work at all, but though gtalk and skype do work, the call gets disconnected after a minute or two. I tried this several times, to several friends.
    3. Once in a while, when I go over to another application (it doesn’t matter which), and then come back to fring the contact list appears empty and I can’t find a way to bring it back to its normal state except of restarting the app.

    I’m using the Samsung Galaxy, with android 1.5.

    I just put the fring app on my HTC Hero, but the sip account will not register when I’m on 3G only. It does when I’m on wifi.

    Is this correct or does this depend on your provider?

    Absolutely Brilliant Thanks.
    Small Bugs.
    1 It fails if spaces are in the phone no.
    2) Fring Android needs to be able to select phone nos. by category so you don’t see all (hundreds of phone nos. Perhaps honour the Favourites “Star”
    3) Needs keypad direct number entry.
    Overall however it works reliably and well

    You mention make free Skype calls … when i make calls from skype, it still dials the US local number.

    Google Talk … I don’t see an option to make a call.

    I just loaded it to MYTOUCH (HTC) Android and it works as advertised – I successfully made a SKYPE call to a contact in Argentina.

    But let me reiterate same complaint I’ve seen published elsewhere – Loading my Telephone Address Book by default is annoying and scrolling through hundreds of contacts needs a Fix. In addition, I need to be able to sort and create lists of users – Group or some other naming convention.

    Else this is a very good 1st Release – I’ll be looking for updates.

    Thx.

  92. on 14 Dec 2009 at 3:48 pm 92.Gwen said …

    A number of issues on my US TMobile G1.

    1) As stated by other people the address book on the first screen is ANNOYING! It _has_ to integrate with the address book to make sense on an Android. I don’t have an iPhone so I don’t know how it works there but on an Android phone your contacts are in one place and every app accesses them. I can see all the entries are taken from my contacts list but the formatting is very messy.

    2) I don’t have an option to chat. I don’t have a SIP option. All I can do is call via Cellular or SkypeOut. No Twitter, no SIP, no other options.

    I was really hoping for this app to be good, given that SipDROID and Guava both are designed to go through a parent SIP provider.

    I have a DROID and just loaded Fring. As previously stated by others, there is no dialpad with Fring. While I can make and receive calls, I cannot randomly dial and more importantly, I cannot dial into my voicemail service for my SIP account. Two very BIG misses that I’d like to see added quickly.

The voice is not clear, doesnot detects earphone, have to put on speaker for earphone, voice echoing, unable to hear other party voice, and on top of that the internet bandwidth for voice calls and voip is very high comparing to symbian phone……..
