Menace on your mobile

News filtering through the lofty windows of Refresh Towers this morning informs us that there is a rather large buzz about getting such comic classics as The Beano and The Dandy converted from their traditional paper formats to the digital medium of MMS!



(No... Really)


"Publishers are looking at challenging traditional comic books by sending children stories, frame by frame, straight to their handsets as picture messages."

Which is quite frankly - AMAZING!

Don't get us wrong, magazines on your mobile are pretty damn good, (or 'Mobizines' as we like to call them - ahem)...

But comic books too? That'd be awesome...!

I'm sure that the kids (who I'm sure this particular money-making venture is aimed at) would probably only have to pay something like £1.50 per issue/MMS delivery... and kids are so good with their mobile phone subscription services - I mean - they never get ripped off!

Now if only there was a service out there already - that could deliver such comic classics like Garfield and/or Dilbert...

As well as provide users with the ability to create their own comic strips...
And then to get them sent straight to your phone...

For free.
No subscription charge.

Now THAT would be AWESOME.

As a great woman once said...

"It's oh so Quiet!'s oh so still."

Yes it is... but WHY?

Well - we like a bit of Bjork in this office y'see...
We think she knows her stuff.

There's nothing quite like a bit of Icelandic warbling to help you concentrate on the day-to-day business of making your mobile life an easier and better place to be...

Because y'know...
...that's what we like to do here at Refresh Mobile.

It's kinda why we've been a bit quiet of late... We've been busying away on a new way to make your mobile life, better.

But how?

Mobizines was our first foray into the mobile space...
Then came Eyemags...

Both of which have done stonkingly well, (and will continue to do so), winning us accolade after accolade...

And now..?

We would like to introduce you to the newest edition to the Refresh Mobile stable.

Welcome to... Mippin beta

Wooo! Cheer! Hurrah!

Isn't it brilliant?!
No? Well it will be when it's live... Honest!

Yes - that's right - Mippin isn't live yet...
Our team of techies have finished defining and are now working on the refining...

NOW we need your help!

As you can see - Mippin is still very much in beta - we need testers to help us iron out all the bugs before we release it to the general public...

So, if you'd like to sign up for our beta - then go for it!

More news soon.
In the meantime - you can find out more about Mippin and what it means over at the new blog!

See you there!

"Zing Boom!"
