fring is a great service. It's got many great features, but it's quite clear that it's primarily developed for Symbian.

On my Nokia E71 it looks awesome and works perfect, but it looks ugly on Windows Mobile. With a bit of tuning GUI vise it would be really great!

Interesting. Now that there is twitter support I might just have to give this a shot. I like that the messenger functions and twitter could be "put together".

I have not try out the new twitter addon yet, but so far I have been enjoying my experience with fring. The ability to log into multiple IM application at the same time, and especially the ability to use call via Skype or via phone depending on your choice.

What draw me into fring in the first place was the ability to log in and chat & call your friends (via Skype Out) even without sim card in it as long as you can get internet access (via usb connection to your laptop or if your phone has wifi built in).

It has got everything that Skype mobile have and more. I can no longer go back to Skype mobile. :D (which I don't really get why news media get so hype about Skype on iPhone when fring has been on iPhone for quite a while. Granted, I don't own an iPhone, so I don't really know how well fring works on iPhone)

But... Fring has supported Twitter since its first versions... This is just an updated Twitter pluggin.

Yes, there were some small innacuracies here. Actually it is not Fring 2.0, but Fring 3.37 and Twitter 2.0 Add-On, which adds some new functionality that was not in the Twitter 1.0 Add-On.

Twitter support is getting stronger in Fring, maybe soon it will be a great Twitter Client (it is already good compared to everything in the market except PockeTwit).

I've been using Fring for the longest time... But mainly because it does not drain the battery as much as other solutions... :cool:

However I wish they could fix the MSN Messenger contacts problem soon, because if your contacts tend to change their online signature a lot or if you have several contacts named the same it is very frustrating to determine who is who.

And also they must add the possibility for us to hide offline contacts too!!!

Other than that I like it. :rolleyes:

Oh and the Twitter 2.0 plugin it's just trash... I rather use the first version. :confused:
