One of the major reasons people purchase smartphones is to browse the Internet. But increasing costs of data plans that phone carriers charge discourage smartphone owners from Internet browsing. Here to offer a workaround is an Android app called Smozzy.
Smozzy is sized at 106 KB and works for T-Mobile customers. Instead of making you browse directly through your phone’s browser, the app lets you send your URL to it as an SMS. Smozzy then converts your URL webpage into PNG images and compresses them. You are then sent these images as a MMS. Your MMS is decoded by the application and made ‘browsable’ on your phone.
Since the app requires a transfer of many SMS’s and MMS’s, it is best suited for people on unlimited messaging plans.
- A user-friendly phone application.
- Compatible with Android devices.

- Sends you images of websites as MMS on your phone.
