RSS feeds on java mobile thanks to mob-it

Hello there,

I would like to introduce a new service called 'mob-it' , currently available at It enables any user to transfer web content to a mobile phone (through its RSS feed).

It is also a fun and easy way to transfer this content to any other mobile .

This means that any web poster, blogger, photo uploader or any visitor can have a mobile version of the content displayed on the internet.

Most of it, you can subscribe to the content and get notifications via sms (with a direct link to download the new content) on the phone anytime a new content is available (ie : subscribe on Flickr to your friend's photostream and get a SMS everytime he puts new photos).

You can therefore create a mobile application from a web content through 3 clicks and get it for free on your mobile with its own name and icon.

Type of usages : Subscription to a news feed, automatic syndication and announcements of new posts on a blog.

To create the application, simply go to, insert the URL of the RSS feed, choose your template, name the application, select an icon (or your own) and you're done!
If you are a publisher, you can also create your own button to automatically generate a mobile application within one step for your visitors.

The usage is so simple that it only take 20 seconds to create a new application.

Once created application is transferred from a mobile to another mobile through a simple SMS.

The application is the referenced on the device as a game (or application). It takes only 3 clicks maximum to reach it. It is permanently stored on the device and accessible without data connection.

mob-it! allows to generate a single mobile portal from virtually any website available on the web through its RSS feed.

The content is immediately generated as a sole mobile Java application, downloadable on the user's mobile phone. More than 150 telephones have been tested and the number is constantly growing.

The look & feel is freely chosen in a list of templates on mob-it website and dedicated templates can be easily created for specific partners. Numerous templates are to be created and made available to users.
As mob-it servers regularly checks the RSS feed, the mob-it platform acts as a RSS notifier, depending on the user's parameters.

The important fact to bear in mind is that mob-it does not require prior installation unlike all of its competitors (works directly on top of java VM on the phone).

Any webmaster can create its own application and post a button on its website and any user can get a full application about the content he likes and get updates through SMS for each update.

The dedicated application then acts as a widget on the phone with its own icon, look & feel and name.

Please feel free to try it on :

Please note that the site is still in beta and that we do not currently support Palm OS, neither Brew.

I would very much appreciate your comments and if possible how to optimize word of mouth on this service.
