As easy to download as a ringtone and simple to install and use, fring is PC-independent and does not require any dedicated hardware. All you need to use fring is a supported handset with internet connectivity and an internet data package or WiFi access.
minifring™ is a lite version of fring, developed specifically for JAVA ME devices which do not support voice over IP calling.
minifring has been developed in response to JAVA ME users asking for a way to join the growing global community of fringsters. minifring delivers the same fantastic user experience as fring, initially focusing on several of fring’s most popular features: rich IM-style chat and live presence, enabling owners of JAVA ME devices to now enjoy the freedom of interacting with other fringsters and taking all of their internet communities mobile. More features will be added shortly.
