  1. Fring has the best Skype app. It’s even better than Skype’s own app. Here’s my input on just the Skype part of Fring.

    – Great sound quality
    – Loads quickly
    – Lets you dial numbers easily
    – Lets you edit phone numbers (which Skype won’t do)
    – You get an alert when you receive a phone call
    – You can turn off your screen during a call (Skype’s app doesn’t)

    – No dial pad after you make a call (so you can’t hit extensions)
    – Won’t let you mute yourself during a call
    – When you get an alert a call is coming in, you can’t answer it unless you were in the app when the call came

    I love this site Brooke. Hope my input helps other readers.
