What is Fring?

Fring is a VoIP (voice over internet) app that allows you to make 2-way video calls, voice calls and live chat for free, from your phone or iPod.

It offers video calls to other Fring users on any advanced smartphone over both 3G and WiFi, and allows you to connect with your friends on Fring, Google Talk™, MSN® Messenger, Yahoo™!, Facebook and Twitter! It can also act as a SIP client.

Fring provides a fringOut service that allows users to call landline or mobile phones at very cheap rates (when compared to those of Skype or of many SIP providers), while maintaining high audio quality.

Hello It seems that 'linphone' has been reported as not an alternative to 'fring': "Linphone This alternative is not yet approved or reported as not an alternative."

I would like to dispute that. Linphone is very well in the same market as Linphone while using Android: it allows voice and video communications.

Hello Would SIP providers be a valid entry on alternativeTo? For example, I'd like to add sipgate [1]. They're clearly not desktop applications, nor conventional online services. But they are online services nonetheless (usually UDP, sometimes TCP and HTTPS), albeit in the form of servers.

Sofar I couldn't find on the internet decent rankings of SIP providers and I thought that alternativeTo could be an appropriate place for something similar. (Some are already advertised, indirectly, via their desktop applications: Skype, fring, Nimbuzz, etc.) My other concern is that in most cases the entries for SIP providers would be ad-like, sometimes with actual rates. That still shouldn't be that different from any other commercial app in your database, but I'm not yet convinced.

What do you think?
