Fring Gets Updated, Now Supports Earpiece Use (huzzah!)
Fring, that all in one VOIP and chat app, got a major bump today to v3.34.
Added new features:
- Better fring addons (facebook, gmail, etc.)
- File Transfer (Skype, MSN, Yahoo..no AIM?)
- Typing indication
- Some nav changes
- Earpiece support for newer HTC devices
That last addon is something people who use VOIP services have been waiting for years. Anyways, it's a free service with a nifty Today Plugin, so if you use Skype, MSN, AIM, Yahoo, Twitter, etc. you may want to take it for a test run (or mobile site: m.fring.com)
And kudos to the fring developers who just got their official “Designed for Windows Mobile” certification.

The Earpiece feature does not actually work on HTC Diamond. Their forums show same feedback for other HTC models too...
If only it would work with my HD2 :(
