Internet voice and video app fring has received an update which lets you use either camera when making video calls using the latest iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad models. That way you can start a call using the front-facing camera for face-to-face communication, but you can switch to the higher quality rear camera if you want to show the person you’re talking to what you’re looking at.

Fring is hardly the first app to offer this feature. Apple’s FaceTime video chat app also lets you flip between cameras, as does Skype. But it’s a nice addition to the latest version of fring.

The update also improves power consumption and lets you purchase fringOut credit for making VoIP calls to telephone lines over a WiFi or mobile broadband connection.
