We recently discussed whether mobile apps are the new web and the appstores new browser. There is an interesting tool that is bringing apps and appstore back to the mobile browser.
Insta7 is a mobile site that works as an aggregator or bookmark service for the most popular browsing actions on your mobile. The app is actually a WAP site that works out of your browser and aggregates links to sites like Facebook/ Twitter or custom tools for news (through IBNLive) and Wikipedia / image search etc.
Developed by 2 young kids, Insta7 comes with a set of default apps including email access, following celebs on twitter, Cricket, Movies timings, Celeb Gossip, Horoscope, JustDial etc. and additional apps can be added from the ‘app store’. The list of apps is completely customizable as one can add or remove any app from the list.
What impressed me is that the team really understands the browsing habit of Indian users and has come up with the right list of apps. They have put in efforts develop app for whatever was not available/optimized for mobile access otherwise. Insta7 is amazing and works for the all sorts of users. When you think of it, you will realize it is dead simple and that is why it is useful.
Do try Insta7 and let us know your views.
Enjoy this promo rap song from the team.
