San Jose, CA, November 12, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Junobe, Inc. today announced a free Android Market application, SMSBook, that provides an alternative to the internet when looking for information while on the move. Mobile customers can access an amazing amount of information from value-added services via text messaging (or SMS). Android phone (such as T-Mobile G1) users can conveniently find a service provider through SMSBook’s directory, send a single text message and get the information they need within seconds. No more searching through screen after screen on tiny browser windows.
SMSBook provides a searchable directory of service providers classified under categories such as Mobile Search, Chat, Travel, Entertainment etc. Users can thumb through the different commands each service supports (examples are included), view text rate information, navigate to the service provider’s main web page or mobile page (where available), or send a text message via the integrated text messenger. The short code number of the selected service provider as well as relevant keyword(s) is automatically inserted into the message eliminating the potential for user error and significantly reducing the number of keystrokes required.
The service provider directory is frequently updated with new information. SMSBook automatically checks for and downloads directory updates to the Android handset on a customizable schedule (daily, weekly or monthly).
SMSBook benefits mobile customers as well as SMS service providers. Customers will never need to remember a short code number again or miss out on innovative new services.
SMSBook, a free application, has been available for download on the iPhone App Store since October 21, 2008, and is now available for download on T-Mobile G1 phones from the Android Market. The directory can also be accessed online at http://www.junobe.com
