I found the following press release on the Google Talk blog. We’ve just released in the US a new version of Google Talk designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch browsers. In addition to sending your friends Gmail messages from your iPhone, you can now chat with them while you’re on the move, too! In your iPhone browser, just go to www.google.com/talk, sign in and start chatting. That’s it.

I received a mail from our friends within Fring with some cool news. As i posted some time ago, Fring released their API publicly, see post here. Today they are publicly announcing the first fringAdd-ons developed by fring and 3rd party developers. The first flavors of fringAdd-ons are around social networking, videos and email notifications. As you can see in the screen shots below and in the YouTube clip fring users can already get Gmail notifications, vTap videos, interact with Facebook and Orkut buddies, with more to come.

I received the following mail today and decided to share it with you.

As you probably know, we have designed a fring pre –release version for the iPhone which we made available for the guys to play with around mid April. Also, while not originally designed for, by now we have huge number of iPodtouch users downloading and communicating via fring ….. and they tell us what needs more work.

So here’s a quick heads’ up: we releasing this morning an updated version of fring for iPhone. This version while designed for the iPhone is also addressing issues in the iPodTouch.

I didn’t yet have the time to test the updated version. But for now you can read my full review if you need to get some more detailed information.

The full fring review can be found here.

This just got in.

There’s a new app released, it’s called Fring, and it let’s you use Skype, Sip, msn, twitter and icq over your wi-fi or EDGE connection. (no calls on edge . . yet )

Now this is a truly killer app!!

It’s a little buggy sometimes, but it’s ok.
I’ve tested the chat function and off course the skype dial function.

And that my friends actually works great.

but let me go on to the how to..
