iPad app news: Fring now tablet-optimised for four-way video

IM-app beats Skype for iPad to the punch

Fring brings free four-way video calls to the iPad

Popular iPhone instant messaging and video VoIP service Fring has released a tablet-optimised application for the Apple iPad 2.

The free Fring app, which allows users to make four-way video calls to other users arrives following the leak of Skype's yet-to-be-released iPad app.

Like Skype, iPad 2 users have been able to make use of the iPhone version of the app, albeit blown-up to match the iPad's 9.7-inch screen, meaning the resolution has been largely unsuitable for use.

Now iPad 2 users get their own version of the app, which also works over 3G, meaning there's little need to use Apple's Wi-Fi only, iOS device only FaceTime app.

Fring also has an Android app offering inter-platform calling. Fring for iPad is available to download now from the App Store.
