Not a Web or WAP browser
FreeNews is not a web browser - there are no url's to enter. You select the news sources you want once from your phone or desktop computer and FreeNews then brings (downloads) this information directly to your phone
FreeNews was designed from the start to be the best way to receive information on your mobile phone. Limited screen sizes and slow data connections make most internet sites unsuitable for mobile phones, and make even WAP pages designed for mobile phones tedious to use. FreeNews is different. When you connect with FreeNews, all your information is sent to your phone at one time in a compressed format.
