Not a web or WAP browser

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.

FreeNews is not a web browser - there are no urls to enter or www?s that you need to remember. 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
An elegantly simple interface makes it easy to organize and find what you are looking for

Once "your news" is in your phone you can quickly scan hundreds of articles for only the ones that interest you

Quickly step through summaries of articles for more information
Want to read the whole article? No problem!
