"Fring's testing out a mobile video party line, connecting four people at once, on video, for free. Free!"

Fring has a beta version available that allows for group video calling of up to four people at a time. It support Android as well as iOS. If you're interested in trying the beta you can sign up on their blog. For those not familiar with Fring it supports calling video calling, text chatting, Google Talk, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and SIP calling as well as voice calling to other Fring users all for free. You can also use Fring for calling any regular phone number for prices as low as a penny per minute. Are there any Fring users out there who are trying this beta? I'd love to hear what you think of the group video calling.

"The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a part of the Department of Defense charged with supplying cutting edge technological options for the entire Department, is currently beta-testing a mobile translation app called Translation System for Tactical Use (TRANSTAC)."

Looks like the United States Department of Defense is utilizing some of Android's apps to aid in communication barriers. Currently, they are beta testing Translation Systems for Tactical Use which allows them to converse back and forth with people speaking other languages. What other apps do you think they may use in the future?
