Stream and listen to content through fring

fringlogoThe S60 platform is the best mobile OS for supporting VoIP communications and one of my favorite applications is fring. fring just announced that they continue to add functionality to S60 devices and you can now use fring to listen to your wireless radio stations. I’ve been using the Mobbler application on my Nokia N85 and E71 for a while now, but it is always good to see competition and other ways to access your content.

Having integrated with fring will let you load up 1 less application on your device too. fring has also made a mashup of the service so you can see your friends in your dynamic friends list and view what they are listening too as well. Twitter integration and chat (Google Talk, Skype, Windows Live) are supported as well in this latest version.

Yes, I found out about Mobbler at your site and linked to you from ZDNet back when I found it. The latest update is very good too.

At this time, I actually can’t get the latest version of fring to install on my E71 and am working with tech support to figure out what is going on.

BTW, my Contact tab is working now. Thanks for the note Sharad.

Make sure you install the right version for the E71. I downloaded one labeled fringSymbian93.sis and it had install issues. I was then told to install fringSymbian92.sis and it worked like a champ.

I’ll post a video of the new fring client tomorrow after testing it out a bit on my devices.

[…] posted the news on integration into fring yesterday and downloaded and tried it out myself on both the E71 and Nokia N85. I was actually […]
