Fring Update Brings One-way Video Chat to IPhone
So much technology today--the iPhone, video chatting, the whole Internet--truly makes it feel like we're living in the future, as chronologically impossible as it may sound. So Tuesday's release of iPhone video-chatting software Fring is, by my math, quadruply amazing.
That's right. You can now use your iPhone (and even your iPod touch) for live video calls.
Fring promises that when iPhones get cameras on their faces, full two-way video calls will be possible. (The company already supports such two-way video chatting on the Nokia Symbian S60.) One other drawback: despite AT&T's policy change way back in October, Fring and other VoIP iPhone apps are still restricted from making calls over the 3G network.
