I've written about my favorite mobile VoIP client, fring, several times in the past on this blog and was very pleased to receive the news from Gil that fring is now available on the Apple iPhone. This current version is for iPhones that have been jailbreaked to run 3rd party applications and you will also need a WiFi connection to use the application.

fring is labeling this a "light, sneak preview R&D version" so it appears they are testing the functionality and popularity of the application on jailbroken phones before proceeding with the official version in a couple of months when Apple opens up to 3rd party apps.

The iPhone fring application will give you all the great features found in fring that are available in the S60 and Windows Mobile versions, such as free and low cost VoIP calls and instant messaging capability through Google Talk, MSN Messenger, Skype, ICQ, Twitter, Yahoo! Messenger, and AIM. You can check out the fring blog for more info too.

Visit the fringcubator site to check out this free preview version on your iPhone. You need to follow the installer instructions on the fring iPhone setup site to get fring on your iPhone. I plan to download it today and start trying it out.
