Today, I've learned about another new company entering the mobile space called 4info.net.
4info.net provides a variety of content that's accessed via SMS (U.S. only) including:
+ Local Info
+ Stock Quotes
+ Sports Scores
+ Flight Info
+ Movie Times
According to their web site, several services are "coming soon" including driving directions and comparison shopping.
To access, send a text message to: 44636 (4INFO on a phone keypad). This page has info and examples about how to format your query. An SMS emulator is also available to try the service without SMS access.
I ran searches for sports scores, movie times, and weather. My results were available quickly and the material was accurate. In other words, 4info.net made a good first impression.
Thanks to BlogHop for the news tip.
