On the heels of the launch of a Skype app for Android, Fring today announced its FringOut calling service for Android phones. Like Skype's service, FringOut lets users make calls using a data network. FringOut offers calling rates starting at $0.01 per minute for select international destinations. Unlike Skype's new app, which is restricted to Wi-Fi use only in the U.S., Fring says its app works over 3G (and 4G) data networks, in addition to Wi-Fi. The Fring app is available from the Android App Market.

Fring is trash

The best way I could describe Fring is "barely usable." Voice quality is seriously bad, and even over WiFi, video chatting is nowhere near as good as FaceTime.
