Ask.com lets you ask for directions on mobile

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 3:11 pm

Ask.com on Thursday launched a free service that lets users of Web-enabled mobile devices get directions just by speaking.

With “Click to Speak” you say your location and the address of where you want to go or the closest intersection. Within a few seconds you will receive a text message with a link to directions that can be used for walking or driving. No need to type in addresses.

The system uses technology from Dial Directions, a provider of voice-activated location-based services.

Ask.com Mobile works on any mobile Web browser and does not require a download. Carrier and data charges may apply.
