New Version of Fring With iPhone Push Notification

Posted July 17, 2009 at 10:30pm by iClarified
Fring has announced a new version of their iPhone application which supports push notification. Fring lets you communicate on all your favourite social networks including Skype, MSN Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, SIP, Twitter, Yahoo! and AIM.

What does it do? When you log out of fring, it keeps you in "online" status so your buddies can contact you, and you can choose whether to respond to an alert notifying you that someone is trying to chat, call, send you files, etc.

How does it work? Whenever someone calls/chats you, you'll receive a beep sound, as well as a pop-up window, telling you that your friend is trying to contact you. Once you click on that pop-up window, it'll log you back into fring and take you straight to the relevant window.

How do you register? Push Notification is enabled by Apple itself; once you download the new version, you'll be asked whether you'd like to enable this option for fring, click "enable" and you're ready to go.

If you choose to temporarily disable this option you can simply click on "more" and then on "go offline"; so once you log out of fring, Push Notification will be disabled, until next time you log in.

You can download fring from the App Store at no cost.

with twitter it only sends you notifications if you set up the persons updates to send you a text. which is like a notification anyway. and when you go to "answer" the notification it opens a blank on. its buggy. i dont use any of the other add ons so for now its just another waist of an app space on my phone!
