Fring iPhone Applicaton - Can receive Skype Chat - AlwaysOn

 downloaded and installed the iPhone Application. I tested it this morning:
1. I want my Skpe chat account to be "always on" and using my iPhone 3G service, it appears to work for chat but I'm not sure it will work unless the application was left open. The ring was distinctive.
2. I used the Fring application on my iPhone to call a Skype user. I had to swtich from 3G to Wi-Fi, but once I did, it worked very well. It seems this service would be perfect when traveling abroad, Fring Wi-Fi to a Skype user in another country that is logged into Skype.
3. A Desktop Skype user tried calling my Fring iPhone, but that did not work.

Lastly, so what is Fring, on their website they say they are a "mobile internet service & community" that enables you to access and interact with social networks on-the-go, make free calls and live chat with your fring, Skype, MSN Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, SIP, Twitter, Yahooo and AIM friends using your handset's internet connection.

This is a good subject to talk about. Sometimes I fav stuff like this on Redit. I don’t think this would be the best to submit though. I’ll take a look around your site though and submit something else. chat online
