Why is Facebook so interested in snaptu? Because Snaptu is an excellent mobile java application for all low-cost phones are also clearly identified in Facebook so they desired to buy it.
Today Mobilca confirmed o their Snaptu blog. Unfortunately, they did not disclose the details or price, but TechCrunch predicts between 60 or 70 million dollars worth settlement. With this move, Facebook wants to further increase the use of mobile FB to every phone.
For the smart phones Android and iPhone there are a bunch of good applications / clients, for others it is the only sensible option in my opinion Snaptu with a range of advanced functions FB, which other applications do not have.
Now when I use the Android phone, I don’t have Snaptu installed, but I miss it. Setup is available here too, but not so easy and I decided not to complicate my life with it (for those who want Snaptu on Android; Installing Android Snaptu on APK). I miss above all that the one application ( it could be said like a platform for other applications) gained access to a bunch of other applications from Twitter and Facebook apps to RSS reader, weather report, a bunch of news, plan of London Metro, cricket results (ok , this I really did not have enabled ) …
Currently, I am looking for a good and fast RSS reader for Android, but not so happy as I was with Snaptu; currently I use Pulse, but I’m afraid to add too many resources, it will then slooow the reader. Thereby I came up to another advantage of Snaptu; its speed. When Snaptu start, it took a few seconds to much, but then you could shift quickly from one application to another; to see tweets, jump to the weather report at sea, and again go back to new the tweets, jump to TechCrunch news, Mashable, and so on.
