From Mauricio’s post I just signed up for and downloaded a new IM/Skype client for my Windows mobile device. Having only recently removed Palringo (which was a cute concept but not overly useful) I am being a bit critical of messaging/VoIP clients and I must admit I wasn’t impressed with Fring. Granted the sign up process was well thought out – they send you an SMS to your device which the download url, which you click to install the application. Unfortunately the usability of the application left a lot to be desired and it seemed to drain a lot of system resources for such a small application. In fact during the initialisation phase it crashed my device the first time! I don’t think I’ll be recommending the first version of this application but will keep it bookmarked for future releases.
Move over Palringo, Fring is here
