Fring beats Skype to Market with Video Chat for iPad 2

Skype for iPad 2 will be released very soon but Fring already has lept ahead of Skype and released it’s own video conference feature. Fring allows up to four people to simultaneously video chat, right in the iPad 2 window. When the iPad 2 was announced, we weren’t surprised about the inclusion of front and rear-facing cameras for video recording and video chatting. FaceTime has been such a big hit for Apple so now, Fring has introduced the ability to conduct group video calling for it’s most current iPad app update.
Fring, which supports multiple chat clients and video calling, is the first to enable this feature for the iPad tablet and we are looking forward to seeing how smooth the video chat experience actually will be. This top iPad app will make full use of multi-touch gestures on the iPad 2 and supports free voice calls to MSN, Yahoo!, and Google Talk. Unlike FaceTime, this iPad app offers video calls to devices on any platform and will work on Wi-Fi as well as 3G networks. You can get it free on the app store.

Been an iPad user from day one of its release. Apple has been innovative from the beginning and now the rest of the world is getting on board. It's great to be able to spread the word about one of their mobile devices.
