Convert URLs for easy mobile phone access

DigitlURL is a web service that allows mobile phone users to access internet sites using numeric addresses, rather than traditional URLs. It was launched last month by Melbourner Andrew Gray. LifeHacker reports.

“Numeric addresses can be much easier to enter on phone keypads, particularly if the URL is long and complicated (as they so often are these days).”

You can find some more information at DigitlURL’s blog.
