fring is all about your friends. You  can just do so much with them: you can call, chat, send and receive files on the go,  keep up with your twitter and so much more.

But you know, every friend of yours has its own unique quality that makes him/her that much more special. Sometimes those qualities are hidden but everyone of us is special in its own , unique way.

We are proud to present to you our  brand- new interactive video. It was shot  at the fring  headquarters  and features 4  different characters, every video has a few options at the end,  leading you to a sequel.  Simply choose the option that suits you and move on to the next one.
Every character will take you through to a different story-line; you choose the friend you like and how the story goes … just like in fring.

Back in May, Nokia has announced the release of its much- anticipated application store- the Ovi Store. Ovi provides tens of millions of Nokia users worldwide with easy access to a whole lot of downloadable goodies from the Ovi website and WAP site as well as Nokia N97 users, on which Ovi is already pre-installed.

fring’s updated version has just been launched on the Ovi and we are looking forward to test out this new service ourselves. As you recall, the N97 is also already supported by fring’s latest 3.40 version so the lucky one’s who already managed to get your hands on the N97 can start enjoying the very social fring 3.4 and a whole lot of other apps from Ovi right away.

More about the OVI
Offering a range of content including applications, games, videos, widgets, podcasts, location-based applications and personalized content, Ovi Store is unique in its ability to target content based on where you are, when you’re there, why you are where you are and who else has downloaded similar content.
The Ovi is planned to eventually be available on all S60 and Series 40 devices.

More about the Nokia N97
Launched back in June, the latest touch-screened Nokia N97 phone is the first device to have the pre-installed Ovi Store; along with many other features such as: full QWERTY keyboard, GPS, 32 GB memory, games, video, camera, widgets, and others.
* Worry not non-N97 customers- you can now also download fring and other apps from the Ovi website directly!


We are looking forward to hearing your feedback on the Ovi with fring inside, and the fring experience on the slick N97.

You probably know this YouTube hoax from a few months ago where four guys are making popcorn using their cellphones.

We thought we should try doing the same thing with fring and see what happens.

Here’s the results:

So, you’ve all been very excited about the new ‘Push notification’ we released last week but since it’s a new feature on the iPhone 3.0 firmware some of you had a few questions about it. So let’s dive in and explain it a bit further:

Using the new Push Notification capability, you can now be notified when you receive a call or a chat when fring is not running. 

Note: Push Notification is only available on firmware version 3.x or newer. If you are using an older firmware version, you can use the “Always-on” add-on.

Once you register to fring and run it for the first time, you will see this message on your screen:


Choose OK and your contacts will continue seeing you as ‘online’ once you exit fring and will be able to send you chat messages and to call you.
Choosing Don’t Allow will dismiss this window and you will not get notifications.

Note: Once you exit fring, your contacts will see you online and you’ll be available for the next 6-8 hours. We’re still fine tuning this period based on your feedback.

When a contact will send you a chat message or try to call you while out of fring, you’ll receive these notifications:

If you choose Answer, fring will launch and these windows will follow:

IMG_0020 IMG_00233

Note: if you choose Close, you will not be available any longer and your contacts will see you offline until the next time you launch fring.

Temporarily disabling Push Notification

If for some reason, you don’t want that your contacts to see you online when fring is not running, you can temporarily disable Push Notification. Just open fring, click on More –> Go Offline –> click Offline again. Quick & easy.

Well, seems that we covered most of this feature. If you have any questions feel free to post them here and we’ll be happy to answer them.
