Lastly, messaging-based mobile applications make use of services such as SMS (Short Messaging Service) and e-mail to drive the interaction between the user and the application. Like the thin client model, it does not require installation of any specific software other than the messaging application itself.
For example, a stock price enquiry service may involve the following actions:
• A mobile user sends an SMS containing the stock symbol of the desired stock to a special number
• This incoming SMS is processed by the server-side application, which then queries the database and retrieves the corresponding stock price for the symbol.
• The stock price is then sent back to the user via SMS
