Mobile search engine, Taptu (, enables rapid content sharing via SMS thanks to specialist communications provider, Esendex. Taptu is a new search engine designed specifically for mobile devices and mobile users and utilises Esendex’s SMS API (Application Programming Interface) ( to integrate with its existing systems. Content searches, such as music videos, blog entries or news stories, can now be shared simply and quickly via text message across the Esendex SMS network.

Cambridge-based Taptu chose Esendex following a disappointing and unreliable service with its previous SMS service provider. Content links shared by text message have grown rapidly since being introduced, therefore speed and reliability were key issues in choosing a new provider. Esendex provides Taptu with a bulk-messaging package and a guaranteed delivery that every message gets through in as short amount of time as possible.

Lynsey Tucker Head of Commercial at Taptu comments “We believe mobile devices are super-social devices and social is at the core of everything we do. Enabling consumers to not only find great entertainment super-fast but to be able to share it with their friends is proving very popular with our users. But our users demand that what they share will be received, so its essential we have a confidence in our SMS partner. We chose Esendex as it has direct links to the five major UK mobile operators and the service is proven, reliable and effective.”

Adam Bird, managing director at Esendex, states, “As a mobile technology fanatic, it is great to work with Taptu who are at the forefront of utilising the social mobile media space. To help make the service the best it can be, we ensure the back end system works well to give users an enjoyable experience of sharing content via services such as SMS.”
