Thumbplay fetches songs for your phone

Bring the ring tones, songs, games, and wallpapers you want to you with Thumbplay's supersimple content search.


Some of my favorite cell phone apps and services are also the simplest. Thumbplay, a major content storage and sales company ( coverage ), gets that with its latest service for Web-enabled phones, Thumbplay GET.

It's essentially a link request and return service for Thumbplay's content offerings. Users text GET, followed by the artist's name or song title, to Thumbplay's short code, 48000. Seconds later a link is returned through text, which leads to the search results. Users can then click to purchase the download.

Though primarily positioned as a song and ringtone service, Thumbplay GET will also serve some listings for wallpaper and games.
