    Nowhere near as useful as Google search. I tried two different searches, got six answers each time, none of them was what I was looking for.

      Hi, Thanks for your Feedback

      Unlike Google SMS Search, TxtWeb apps are created by various developers for various purposes.TxtWeb has thousands of apps, I recommend you to try some and then figure out what suits best for you.

      You may try the following apps which I feel excellent.

      1. Try sending “@smsdir boston to seattle” without quotes to the txtweb number of your country, you will receive a detailed information on direction and distance, as in Google Maps
      2. also try “@wiki Google” or “@wikipedia Google” or simply “Google” to the txtweb number, you will receive the wikipedia article for Google
      3. You may also try “@mean” for example “@mean amplify” gives you the meaning for “amplify”, you may use this keyword as an alternative for “Define” in Google SMS Search
      4. “@weather New York” gives you the current weather for the city

      I recommend you to visit http://www.txtweb.com and explore and pick out the best apps. I am sure you will come to know that this service is better than what Google offered (No Offence)

      Please let us know your opinion

      Thank You

          Since TXTWEB has several apps for the same purpose with different functionality, I recommend you to visit http://www.txtweb.com and experiment various apps with the onscreen emulator and find the best that suits your need

          Thanks

    I was just searching for this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.

    FYI–Shortly after I tried this I got the following phishing text:

    +19802639041: ID #30410: Your GoogIe Account has been hacked. Text back CALL to take a call to verify your account

    What you all are looking for is 44636 – it works in a similar fashion to Google’s old sms search. It is free – a service from 4info.
