Vavia Technologies, a mobility and internet solutions provider, said that its flagship product txtBrowser has crossed 300 million queries. txtBrowser is a SMS based search engine that allows a user to access any information that is available on the internet over SMS by simply sending his query in natural language.

The product can be used from any phone in plain every day English without having to remember complex combinations of keywords and symbols.

txtBrowser has partnered with Spice Digital to launch this product as a value added service (VAS) across operators worldwide. It is available across most operators in India, middle east and south east Asia. It can be accessed on the short code 55444 on Airtel, 55577 on Idea and 56300 on others.

According to Alan D Souza, Founder & CEO, Vavia Technologies, it is very encouraging to witness mass acceptance of a utility product which comprises utmost simplicity yet ascertains access to the vast information as available on the web without the internet.

Further,The biggest factor in making us reach 300 million is that txtBrowser responds with an answer rather than reverting back with a list of links. Todays users are looking for quick answers and thats where they keep returning back to our product, D Souza added.

Commenting on the milestone, SaketAgarwal, CEO, Spice Digital said, Vavia has demonstrated the ability to innovate and provide an accurate and user friendly solution to make information available to one and all. Vavias solutions allow consumers to get timely and accurate answers without the need for internet, thereby creating increased levels of consumer satisfaction.
