    Just got an update for fring in itunes so went to their website to check out what's new. According to this push notification is included in the release but it's not working for me yet.. does anyone else have it running? Maybe I'm just reading it wrong who knows haha.

    It's not working for you because push notification isn't working for anyone yet. Look for it in 3.0

    You've got it all wrong. That's not push notification. This update just sends what people send you when you exit out of the program to your email.

    more details about this feature

    From the blog:
    "The new Always-On feature keeps you logged into fring even when the fring application is closed on your iPhone/iPod touch."

    It doesn't matter. No apps can be published to the App Store with the push code until 3.0 is released. You can't submit an app compiled for 3.0. It's pseudo push, like Beejive. There will be no actual pushing apps until the summer. And they couldn't have even done extensive testing if they did have real push because the push servers have only been online for about 3 days now.

    fring just updated; now has real push

    version has real push; i haven't figured out how long it will keep one logged in (currently eBuddy and Nimbuzz only keep you logged in for 30min which is useless for push; AIM will keep you logged in for 24hours)

    Fring's push pop-ups don't include the message sent, though. You'll have to open Fring to see if it's important enough to open Fring up. (Again AIM got it right (and did it first); you can set how much info you want in the pop-up; too bad the people I IM are on gTalk!)

    I can confirm. Push is indeed working now with Fring. Works pretty well! How long will Fring keep a person logged on for(after exiting the app)...?

    so fring has to be open in order to receive calls? I get a push notification that a number tried to call, then it shows up as a missed call
