• What are Shorthand Apps?
    Shorthand Apps are mini-applications within the Shorthand that efficiently use efficient data or SMS to send and receive information and save your money.

  • Does Shorthand require a data plan?
    Shorthand uses data on your mobile operator's network. However, Shorthand Apps use so little data many users will find they save money by avoiding paying for an expensive data plan and instead incrementally paying for data ‘as-they-go’. For details about your plan and data charges, please contact your operator.

  • What is Shorthand?
    Shorthand is a powerful, mobile app-platform that uses radically efficient data communications to provide a rich, branded, graphic, and interactive experience. Shorthand gives you access to a large base of content and services (we call these “Apps”) comprising a diverse set of categories including information, entertainment, social networking, retail, food services, banking & payments, etc. from many of the brands you know and trust.

  • How much does Shorthand cost?
    The Shorthand application with Apps are free to the user. Since Shorthand uses data or SMS to send and receive information when you access content you may incur data or SMS charges from your operator. For details about your plan and charges, please contact your operator.
    Certain content and services accessed through Apps, such as retail purchases and transactions, paid subscriptions, premium SMS content, etc. will incur their own associated charges from the content and service provider and are not covered by Shorthand.

  • What phones does Shorthand support?
    Shorthand currently supports a multitude of phones across different mobile platforms. We are actively working to enable many new devices on various operators’ networks. Below are the devices Shorthand currently supports:
