The web is undoubtedly the most exciting new feature in modern mobile phones. While 'on the go', you can now access online videos, maps, friends, news, music, education, shops, and much more. But it's much harder to navigate the web using phones' limited keypads. URLs like 'cnn.com' aren't too difficult to enter, but context-specific URLs can be a nightmare, e.g. 'http://www.bart.gov/stations/schedules/ stationsched.asp?page=&origin= CIVIC&depart_month=12&depart_date= 7&depart_time=7%3A30+AM&go.x=12&go.y=13'.
This is where DigitURL comes in.
The natural way to enter data to phones is as numbers. DigitURL provides numeric alternatives to traditional URLs — DigitURL is URL redirection, tailored to mobile phones.
How is DigitURL best used?
You should quote a DigitURL whenever you want to enable easy access of websites to users of mobile phones.
Some examples might include:
The best way to use DigitURL is with the DigitURL Mobile software — download here. When you want to enter a DigitURL, just launch the program and enter the number. Alternatively, you can enter a DigitURL from digiturl.com (bookmark it on your phone!), or add the number to the DigitURL URL like this: digiturl.com/88493959476 .
DigitURL is a free service.
I'm Andrew Gray, the creator of DigitURL. I live in Melbourne, Australia. I'm a happy-go-lucky 29 year-old Aussie d00d. Technology is a love of mine, and I am fascinated with the rapidly-changing world of the internet. Late one dark night, while driving home on the freeway from work, I had an idea to create a service that might help people access the internet on mobile phones...
I hope you enjoy using DigitURL.
