Good Online WAP browser
WAP and mobile-based development is getting hot with mushrooming of handheld devices in every country and every moment. After having Nokia 6030 with GPRS enabled from Airtel, every other day, there would be some service message showing some junk URL. There are some good ones like today I got a URL for downloading Swami Ayyappan ringtones and wallpapers. Here is the WML URL.
This is a multipart post. First I am describing the tricks of some local operators and then I would discuss about the good technical sites which overcomes this problem and also helps WAP-based developments.
But the catch is that Airtel is so tricky that sometimes direct download URL would be given and if you even click it, you would be paying some INR 100 even after you opt canceling the download prompt in your mobile.
Now coming to a technical solution, here is a simpler approach. Don't retrieve the URL directly. Launch a simpler and faster online WAP browser. The most convenient one is from Wapsilon. It shows all the links first and then if you are genuinely convinced by the push WAP link, you can use it. Furthermore, online WAP browsers like this greatly help in production troubleshooting of our own WAP applications too. They are browser-based and are fast compared to troubleshooting from the device.
