A new mobile service has gone public with a beta testing programme this week – Daily Downtime. It’s unique in the mobile industry, in that it’s offering you mobile content for free. Yes, actually free – it’s entirely ad-funded.
Simply sign up with your mobile number and a few details about your phone on DD’s site and it’ll send you a text containing an installation link. Then, whenever you want to kill a bit of time, you just fire up the Java app and download that day’s bundle of new content.
Stuff like Sudoku, horoscopes, original word and number quizzes and daily trivia will then all funnel themselves onto your phone every day, providing what DD describes as “snackable original content” for whenever and wherever you may find yourself bored.
Daily Downtime supports a wide range of mobiles – the web site will tell you the likelihood of it working on yours.
