iPhone review: Fring VOIP Skype

Posted in Apple, geek, iPhone 2.0, Software by fernieville on October 6, 2008


I downloaded this and I have to say it was OK.  The call worked, but the call quality if awful.  I get much better call quality on Skype on my laptop, but for some reason the quality of the call on the iPhone is very much reduced.  It’s particular to the application because if you call their test number you’ll also hear the same poor call quality.

Also the delay is pretty horrendous.  Last time I remember a delay this bad was calling foreign countries back in the 80’s.  I’m not sure, but it seems that everything goes through the Fring servers, if so, I can’t see the reason for this at all.  Hopefully they’ll either fix this or something else will come along.

Bottom line:  use it in a pinch if you really have to.
