The application runs on almost any mobile phone that is GPRS enabled and has a browser. Since Insta7 is a web application, it runs across all operating platforms. There is no limitation as such that it only runs on an Android phone or an iPhone or the Symbian platform of Nokia. The user just needs to type in insta7.com in his phone's browser, irrespective of the operating system on his phone and the application loads up.
The content available on the web conventionally is not formatted to suit the screens of mobile phones. Moreover, the experience of typing too many things on a tiny keypad makes it extremely painful. The entire browsing experience of the web improves to some extent if you have a smart phone. But then, the percentage of smart phones in India is still miniscule. Insta7 comes in as a great tool for both smart phone users as well as the users with feature phones at the lower end. The entire content that is made available through insta7 is optimized for a beautiful mobile phone experience.
For a lot of Indians, access to the internet through computers still remains a challenge because of computer illiteracy and unaffordable costs of computers. However, over 65% of the nation's population has access to mobile phone services. Insta7 with its intuitive user interface is the gateway for these people for access to a large part of the internet that is relevant to them.
