Apple iPhone VoIP client launched by fring: video

For quite some time there has been talk about bringing a VoIP service to the Apple iPhone handset, and with the release of the Apple iPhone SDK, and well let’s face it, it was only a matter of time before native apps for the Apple iPhone became widespread. Now it looks as though leading VoIP provider fring has managed to stave off competition by actually launching the very first VoIP app for the Apple iPhone.

Fring have said their native installed VoIP client for the Apple iPhone is a “special pre-release R&D version of fring” which has been created in conjunction with the Holon Institute of Technology academic research labs. With the point being of this release is to get feedback on the application in preparation for a full-blown, final release version later this year.

If you want VoIP on your iPhone it will need to be jailbroken and access to Installer.app, this is a native application, after all, so get to jailbreaking your iPhone if you haven’t already done so. Next add fring’s iPhone application repository (“http://fring.com/iphone.xml”) to your “Sources” list. Now just fire up Installer.app, and hit the “Sources” button located along the bottom edge of the Installer window. Then hit the “Edit” button in the upper right corner, and next hit “Add” in the upper left corner. When prompted, enter “http://fring.com/iphone.xml” into the URL field.
