Instant messenger, VoIP application, GMail notifier, Skype client, last.fm radio, and Facebook tool fring connects with Skype and standard SIP VoIP, GoogleTalk, MSN (Windows Live), ICQ, Yahoo, AIM, and Twitter. It also connects to the chat function of Facebook, orkut, and other social networking sites.
And now fring comes with a brand new Twitter add-on with new looks and lots of new features. Search works better, tracking followers is easier, and pushing the button send links in tweets straight to your phone's web browser. But the best new feature is the ability to switch off the beep sound upon arrival of new tweets: fring has learned to keep quiet.
You don't even need to download anything to use the new Twitter add-on on your old copy of fring. Just fire up fring, unsubscribe from the Twitter add-on, and resubscribe. That's all it takes to make fring use the new improved Twitter add-on.
Tip: if you download fring from the fring download page, you don't need to enter your real email address in the "get fring via PC" box.
