mobile Internet browsing

It is important to reqognize the difference in the "Desktop" and "Mobile" environments, when considering what type of web-content one would be browsing for. When browsing on a "Desktop" there is a big screen with a high resolution, a mouse or touch-screen and a fullsize keyboard, but on mobile devices there are small screens and limited input methods. But the hardware is not the only difference, even more importantly there are differences in the time you have on your hands, what kind of content you need to access at that particular time and what you do with the content access on your browser. This means that you are going to be looking at and needing a different kind of information, or at a minumum differently formatted information, when browsing on a wireless device. We believe that mobile services should be, and to a great degree are thanks to WAP specifications, designed specifically to be used on a mobile browser. That means that in order for an online service to provide the best possible user experience the offered content must be formatted for a relatively small screen, and limited input methods etc and the browser should know how to handle this content and do it's best to make it suitable for the device the browser is running on.

As a result, the Winwap browser has been designed to provide the best possible user experience when browsing these mobile services, but additionally allows you to use any regular websites to find the content you are looking for. The primary focus of the WinWAP browser since development was started in 1999 has been mobile services, and we have been fully supporting the mobile website standards for a long time. Our efforts have for some time been focused on making the regular web work better on mobile devices, and today's builds already have great capabilities and many new innovations for this purpose. Expect to see more, better features that makes the web more convenient to browse as we continue our efforts to make WinWAP the worlds best mobile browser.

Multimedia Messaging

It is common to talk about picture messaging when referring to MMS. But MMS is in fact so much more then just the ability to send a picture from one phone to another. MMS Messaging can even in it's simplest forms send text, audio, video and pictures, but is capable of complex slideshows combining all of the previous items on several timed slides and can even send any type of data as long as it's within the size limitations set by the telecom carriers MMS Center configured to be used by the MMS Client.

The WinWAP MMS Client  has been designed to provide a flexible and intuitive user interface to provide the best user experience when sending or reading MMS messages. Further the underlying technologies that support all of the MMS capabilities (some depend on device capabilities!) is optimized to make received content fit on the particular device at hand and to have access to all the parts of the messages even if the device does not include capabilities to play all parts. Modern devices come with touch screens, navigation buttons or even combinations of both and new intuitive touch and scroll technologies for which the MMS Client is adapted so it becomes an integrated part any device it's been ported to.

The underlying WAP protocols used for message transport and pushing notifications over SMS stay uknown to end users with the WinWAP MMS Client as those technologies operate independetly in the lower layers of the application and integrate into the core for optimum performance.
