Download: Fring Beta for HTC Thunderbolt and Atrix 4G

The current market version of Fring doesn’t support the new HTC Thunderbolt or Motorola Atrix 4G, but there is a version floating around behind the scenes that definitely does.  The Fring team has been sending out a beta version that will work on these two devices and we have it for you below.  Enjoy!

Download:  Fring2459.apk [mirror]

Install as you would any other apk.

Cheers Jason!

    just downloaded and ran a Fring Test Call…works great. None of my buddies are currenlty online to test live, but, will update when I am able to confirm this app. Nice job getting us access to the beta.

    I’ve got one… it’s a great phone.
    The laptop dock is cool. I charges the phone using its own battery and can almost triple the battery life of the phone.
    That said, thanks to our friends at xda-developers you can get “Webtop Via HDMI Without a Dock”, you don’t even need to root!

    Pros:
    Very fast & reliable (android 2.2 FTW)
    Loud speaker (Max volume will get your attention from across the house)
    Bright LED flash
    Firefox in webtop can play hulu (kinda choppy tho)

    Cons:
    Motoblur
    Battery life / temperature on load (idle is fine)
    Dock cost is annoying
    Signed bootloader (no third party ROMs)

    All in all… I like it better than my 3GS

    Apparently this is an updated build, than the one posted. I just installed it, and my front camera isn’t FC’ing anymore.

    Fring works great on my non-rooted TB, but it messed up the front camera later on. If i open the camera and switch to front camera, it will FC. I have to clear the camera cache each time to fix it.

    Nice to see some Atrix coverage on here!

    Too bad it won’t interface with Skype video anymore… and no Yahoo video :(
    So can’t really use it to video chat with people on their PC’s…

  • Michel Ryerse

    Thanks. How does this compare to Tango? Better/Worse/Same?

    • Guest

      Can’t tell you how it compares as I have not used Fring but Tango works great on my TBolt :)

      • Michel Ryerse

        Yeah I’ve been using Tango to video chat with an iPhone and it seems to work well provided the internet connection is good. It looks like Fring lets you make calls to landlines… not really what I’m personally interested in. Good to know it’s there though I guess.

    • EnriquemtzDX

      I would say is just better by a hair than Tango have more options and video quality ajusts to you connection’s speed…

  • Guest

    Tango is already here and it is on i*hones too.

    • Networkpimp

      So does Fring… and Tango isn’t working on some TBolt’s either… it’s all up in the air at the moment, I think.

      • Dshudson

        Tango works on mine.. Rooted TB

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Crisp/573192754 John Crisp

          Tango works on non rooted TBolts…I tested it….Yahoo Messenger also works from Phone to PC…Going to test Fring out tonight from a Tbolt to a i*hone

    Does it work on the iPhone too?

      Will dis work on da OG Droid?!?!

        Not sure if you’re trying to be condescending or sarcastic, but some people have friends and family with iOS devices, since Skype video doesn’t work on Android, it would be nice to have something that works cross platform.

        • Anonymous

          Tango works for both Android and iOS. I’ve tested it with a friend of mine that has an iphone and it works well.

        Since I started following this site back when the Droid Shadow was being rumored, I enjoyed reading the comments that everyone posted because everyone was very friendly and treated eachother as a family (Minus i*hone lovers)….Back then the members (i use that term loosely) were alot more accepting to Newbies. I feel this community has gotten very stuck-up and are no longer willing to pass on their knowledge to those who don’t know much about Android products. Not to say that this particular person is a not knowledgeable on the topic. I just feel the tone has changed on this website and it’s no longer a place to help eachother but now more of a place to try to show who has the bigger “DROID” (to keep things G rated).

  • Kevoskee

    I hope that they are still working on skype. Even though I don’t video chat, it would be good to have

    • Anonymous

      I have been told directly that Skype IS coming, it’s not cancelled, there is a holdup with bugs relating to the front facing camera and ending calls, but it’s still scheduled for Q2.

    SWEEEET… but it still doesn’t beat Skype… all of my contacts are on there.. this would be a band-aid

    • Mike

      i agree, its no Skype, but its a start. Does this work over 3G or just Wifi an 4G…just curious

      • Rob
