If it fits into that list, you can add:
- it doesn't automatically push info (other than bulletins); mobiles
have to request info if and when they need it.
- the info is never static (such as the police station address in
apritch.myby.co.uk): it's always dynamic and live, usually from the web
(at most with a cache, even the repeater freqs); this is mainly because
people can find static info on the yellow pages and also because I have
no time to continuously update and check static information.
