All in one IM Bot

Ever wondered how easy it would have been had there been a single place to read News, check Cricket/Football Scores, Train PNR Status, Horoscopes, Train/Flight info, Stock Quotes, Movies/Hotel Listings, Dictionary etc.

It would be even better if its at your finger tips, something which gives instant responses to your queries. Guess what? Here is something you might love!

Google has started this service called Google SMS Search in India which works with SMS. All you have to do is SMS your query to 09773300000 for cricket scores, railway info, to find businesses around you, stock quotes, horoscopes and more on your phone.

Since internet is easily accesible now a days, we would like to rather search for our queries online than via SMS. My friend Shravan and I have made an IM Bot for this service which does the same thing without the need to open the browser.

Add ” [email protected] to your GTalk and [email protected] for yahoo users. (Other networks will be added soon).

After you have added the bot, send tips to for commands to use the Bot.
