mjelly.com mobile 2.0 service of the week – signing off with a retrospective

Hello Hello what’s going on? what’s all this shouting?

James from mjelly here at Mobile Industry Review.

Sadly, this is the last chance for me to do a Mobile 2.0 Service of the Week post on this blog. Good luck to Ewan with the new business model and a massive thanks to him for letting me write this every week – max respects.  Thanks also to Krystal for uploading my early posts.   All is not lost – we’ll be continuing the series over at http://blog.mjelly.com

It was tough trying to decide which mobile site or app to cover for the last mobile 2.0 service of the week – Opera Mini has the most ratings on mjelly of all the downloadable apps, and mjoy is top on the mobile sites front.  So, rather than try and pick one I’m going to list all of the services we have covered over the last few months in case you missed any – listed by category – here it goes:


Mobamingle – the international version of Mobile Game Town – a Japanese mobile services with $200m in annual revenues

Peperonity – the original mobile 2.0 service and one of the biggest drivers of inventory on admob

Heysan – cool Silicon Valley mobile startup building a nice line in mobile virtual goods

Mocospace – US mobile social network with massive traction and generating big ad revenues

Flirtomatic – the world’s leading mobile dating site and top UK mobile startups

Mxit – South Africa’s massive mobile social networking platform

Media and content

Mippin – the world’s leading mobile news and web service – based in London UK

Cellufun – mobile games community


Taptu – Cambridge-based mobile-focused search engine taking on Google

abphone – the French mobile vertical search engine


UCWEB – the Chinese mobile browser that’s been downloaded 60m times

Communications and messaging

Dabr – the no.1 mobile twitter interface

ebuddy – mobile IM service downloaded 11m times

Nimbuzz – unified communication across Skype and IM

Mig33 – mobile voip and messaging app

Trutap – fantastic IM and content app that was unlucky with their investors

Fring – momo award winning VoiP and communications app

Not a bad list really – who would have imagined all of these new services even a few years ago when all mobile had going on was ringtone scams and a load of hype about “mobile TV”?

You can find all these mobile 2.0 services on mjelly which is a directory of mobile sites and free mobile software

Thanks again to Ewan and all at MIR 🙂
