    Thumbs up Horoscope.mobi - Free Daily Horoscopes for your Mobile Phone

    Hi Folks,

    I just launched Horoscope.mobi with Free Mobile Horoscopes. It's the first .mobi site I design specifically for the iPhone to look like an App. It scores a 4/5 on Ready.mobi (due to the heavy graphics). I based it *** of DMM's script with heavy modifications to meet my needs for the look and feel.

    A lot of people pay hefty Premium SMS fees to get their horoscope on their mobile phones (I'm sure you've all seen those annoying ads on TV) and I'm hoping to change that with this .mobi.

    Check it out and let me know what you think. It's a pretty straightforward site, but since "horoscope" has a WT score of over 35,000, I'm hoping this puppy gets big regardless of its simplicity. I'll be adding more features in the future, such as a forum for visitors to interact with each other, but for now I just wanted to get one of my best .mobi's out the door as soon as possible.

    I'm particularly interested in hearing how the site looks on phones other than the iPhone.

    Cheers!

    Site did not load completely on my Blackberry. Only got Aries , Taurus , Gemini , and Cancer. These links worked though when clicking through to the horoscope.

    Looks nice, but took about 20 sec to get the first page to load.

    I may not have enough memory though.

    Very beautiful.

    Will you add partner horoscopes anytimes plus a link to your dating.mobi to find the astrological ideal partner?

    Congrats!

    loads fine on the n95, nice looking site. But why is it that any of the horoscopes seem to apply?

    Sweet looking site Andres and very well done I just read mine and it says I should start dating a friend and her sister, although i'm not sure what the wife would say

    To everyone who thinks a profitable viral marketing campaign is so easy to accomplish I would suggest to go and do it instead of complaining that others aren't - Scandiman

    Yup, was playing around with the Cache to speed things up for 2G phones. Try again.

    I also think I will have to spruce my site up now. Andres well done.
    I have been using the script on my site since early 2007 and I actually have made a little bit of money from this very small site.
    My horoscope site is located at mystics.mobi.

    Seen it now, Andres.

    Very nice site...Very pretty, and a fast load on both PC & iPhone (3G)...

    I like that its a free service...It'll help .mobi sites gain acceptance faster, the more we can provide good info free of charge - especially where similar info costs the user elsewhere.

    Nice...

    Very nice looking site Andres. I went to the dating link and maybe took the ( Love is in your hands!) line to litterally.

    Great news, folks, I just saw that Horoscope.mobi is listed on the Vodafone Qatar mobile portal: http://mobile.vodafone.com.qa/links

    The page seems to be new as it's not yet indexed on Google. The main vodafone.com.qa site has a PageRank of 7 so I think this link is going to give Horoscope.mobi a serious boost once the juice gets going.

    I never contacted them so this is a prime example of how getting in early with mobile development can make all the difference.

    I have a feeling that this is only the beginning...
