Want some information to your mobile?
Posted on 24-May-2003 14:26 | Filed under: News

If you can send e-mails from your mobile phone (either via an SMS gateway or from a html or wml browser), then you can get some free services from mgopher.

The service is really easy to use: you send an e-mail to a special address, and receive a reply with the results of your request.

For instance, you can send an e-mail to w@mgopher.com with "Boston, MA" in the body, and receive back a reply with the current weather and forecast.

The services currently available are:

  • horoscope
  • eBay latest auction bids
  • lowest prices for products
  • thesaurus
  • dictionary
  • weather
  • 411 info (phone directory)

    The service is free, and the homepage contains instructions on how to use it. Prices and info available for US only, apparently.
