Fring App for iOS, iPhone VoIP, iPad VoIP Apps

Okay, so it may not be the most exciting update to hit Fring users on Apple devices, but it nevertheless makes some changes that can greatly affect how users interact with the VoIP and messaging app.

First things first, the update adds an option to the settings menu to allow users to limit IP access to Wi-Fi connections only. This could be helpful in saving a little money on mobile data costs (especially helpful if you’re using one of the global SIM cards available on the market). Otherwise, it’s a very small, almost transparent change.

Quite possibly the most notable change is embedded within the dialer: users can now disable the country code correction in the dialer by selecting blue (none) country flag. This will, of course, enable users to dial country codes manually (if for some reason the user wants to dial them manually) as well as for dialing short codes and other special prefixes.

There weren’t any notable bug fixes or improvements in the app update aside from the aforementioned feature additions. The new Fring version 6.2.1 can be downloaded now in the Apple App Store.
