Yes it is a bit buggy, but Fring’s iPhone app does let you make video calls over 3G, and that’s something you just can’t do with FaceTime. No, the quality isn’t nearly as good, but it DOES WORK! How do I know? Because Larry and I just video chatted, and there isn’t a stitch of WiFi where he is at the beach.
After making a video call iPhone 4 to iPhone 4 over 3G we decided to see what would happen if he installed Fring on the 3GS. He did… and it worked. There was just one problem… because the 3GS only has one camera there was no way to see AND BE SEEN at the same time.
Or was there…
Larry went down the hall to a mirror and… there you go… 2-way video chatting using Fring, an iPhone 3GS and… a mirror.
