Snaptu brings Facebook, Twitter and other news, entertainment websites for free to most of the phones we have, particularly the Java-enabled phones. It’s basically a one-download free mobile application platform that allows these multitude of free apps and services to load up and run possibly fast on your phone.
Facebook and Twitter have both been popular in the country today that some have switched to phones either to have browsers installed or apps to be downloaded. Not to mention internet usage through WiFi or even GPRS and 3G also spiked-up because of social networking. If you happen to visit the mobile sites for your mobile carriers like Globe or Smart, then you may have already downloaded this one, or if you haven’t, then better check it out.
