Recorded on Friday, the latest SMS Text News podcast is now available complete with traffic noise ‘atmosphere’. This week we ridicule mobile operator, Orange and take lots of listener questions and do our best to answer them. Our applications of the week…. aren’t. That’s a surprise.
Thanks to the guys from Ping.fm who have given us the beta code ‘smstextnews’ so you can try it too!
