In today’s technology driven society, not having a smartphone is like not having a lifeline.
Without a smartphone, we struggle to keep up with current events, but what about the people who cannot afford to purchase the latest iPhone or Android? How do they access the Internet?
Innoz, or more commonly known as the “offline Google”, is changing the way information is exchanged in developing nations. Created by Deepak Ravindran and his India-based team, Innoz is set to become the world’s largest offline search engine that lets users access the Internet through SMS. Innoz eliminates the need of smartphones, and gives “dumb” phones a chance demonstrate their worth. Questions texted to the SMSGyan will automatically be answered and sent back to the user in a matter of seconds.
Deepak and his team even created an SMS app store, which currently has more than 10,000 apps.
