For users who are not too enthusiastic to browse the web using an in-built browser, txtWeb, has come out with an SMS-based browser. So if you want to update your Facebook status, check cricket scores or the weather status, you only have to send a message.

The txtWeb application is like a browser for mobile phones that don’t really use an in-built browser, but rather a text message to give you information. It doesn’t somehow seem to be applicable for images and videos as well, but then if your handset doesn’t support a browser, it’s quite likely that it won’t do so for videos, music and photos as well. Anyway, if you want to update your Facebook status you send a message titled “@face” followed by your status message, for that you’ll first have to register with this service. The message has to be sent to 92433 42000.

Other services from txtWeb include live cricket scores, weather updates, Google news, passport, railway ticket information and more. You can check out the whole list on their website.

This seems to be an interesting application for those who are using their old mobile phones either due to plain nostalgia or maybe for other reasons. If you do end up using this service, do let us know about your experiences in the comments section.
