Finally iPhone gets its first killer app. Yes you heard that right, Fring the Israeli company has come out with a beta of its native iPhone App.
Here’s what the press release reads like :
The special pre-release version will enable iPhone’ users to get an early taste of fring and discover the freedom of being able to take their fring‘ contacts and buddies from their other favorite online communities mobile on their iPhones.
They will also have the ability to make free and low cost mobile calls over WiFi & enjoy rich, IM-style live chat with their online contacts, regardless of whether they are on their mobiles, PC’s or other internet devices.
We very well know that Jailbreaking isn’t popular with most of the iPhone crowd, but it looks like Fring may also be the first really killer application that can get non-early adopter users to consider using Jailbreak.
To me it looks like Fring is preparing for the official release of the SDK and third party apps on the AppStore. Once that is out, you should see a fully featured Fring client selling pretty well in the AppStore.
Installation of Fring on your iPhone should be easy if you already have a Jailbroken iPhone, just follow the instructions here and you should be all set to be Fringing!
Apple time to screw up, and come on guys open up the iPhone atleast now so that we can see more like Fring
