With so many networks to choosing, fring might appear slightly overwhelming – but don’t worry. It’s a case of sticking with what you know, and everyone knows MSN Chat.
Utilising any service from fring requires you to choose the service with your finger, navigation pad or stylus and select Subscribe. From here, fring requires that you login to that service with your usual username and password.
Fring then acts as the chat client in place of the real thing, and certainly in the cast of MSN chat holds up pretty well, even allowing for picture, video and music files to be sent to the person you’re chatting with.
Similarly, VoIP chat on the Skype network produces exactly the same results as using a Skype client, and the ease with which fring imports the contacts from Windows Mobile’s contacts list is as seamless as the way the calls are handled.
Utilising everyone’s favourite must-have application Facebook is fring’s next trick, and although it does appear as if it has been added almost as an afterthought (requiring the same method of Select and Subscribe as MSN chat, Skype and everything else) it is nevertheless a capable and useful mobile Facebook interface. Curiously however Facebook chat is not supported.
