Instead of joining up to hundreds of messaging sites, Fring lets you speak to your mates regardless what service they use.

If you are an online social-butterfly, then the plethora of instant messaging options your extended social network uses probably makes it increasingly difficult to keep up with what is going on and where.
So, if you keep getting your Twitters in a twist, then Fring could be for you.
Fring allows you to contact your social network at any time without the need of logging into to all the sites you have joined. So you can contact someone who is on Twitter without needing to be on the site yourself and so on.
As with most mobile apps of this type, Fring does use your phone’s web connectivity to contact people. But it doesn’t have any messy subscriptions to go through, which makes it instantly more likeable.
We were surprised by how well Fring works. It’s navigation through myriad social networks – in our case, Twitter, Skype and Messenger – worked well and you were even allowed to choose whether you used it over 3G or Wi-Fi, which was a bit of a bonus.
The interface is also a joy to use. In fact Fring couldn’t have made it easier to contact your mates for free on your phone!
