MinClip was initially developed to allow a user to interact with the internet via a cellular phone. It was designed in such a way that the user could communicate with others by text message without actually being able to see or hear them. However, over time the technology and the service itself have grown and expanded into more than just a communication tool. At first the only people who were able to use the service were those who owned cell phones that could receive text messages and could send SMS to other cell phones.
Soon after its release, the service became available for everyone’s cell phone service and has grown to become a fully functioning, all-in-one messaging service. In fact, the network is now used by many people who don’t own cell phones at all. As one of the first all-in-one messaging solutions, MinClip is now used by millions of people all over the world.
Messaging can now be accessed through one’s desktop and can be sent out via email, cell phone, and the Internet. Messages can be sent to anyone who has the MinClip client installed on their system. Anyone who has MinClip installed on their computer can also view their received messages on their computer or via their phone if they have it installed.
Because the service has grown in popularity, many of the people who use it have started to develop other applications to use on the MinClip site, which are called the MinClip SDK’s. These SDKs are used to develop applications that can be accessed by the MinClip service as well as the other uses of the service.
Although the service is now available to everyone, only certain websites and applications can access it because it is available via the Internet. For example, the application for the Yahoo! Hotmail, the OpenOffice Office Suite, Google Talk, and Zimbra Messaging service all require some sort of Internet connection in order to use the application.
The services for mobile phones in addition to the web applications require a user to have a high Pagerank, or quality score, in order to be able to use the service. A higher Pagerank means that more people will be able to see the application as opposed to a lower Pagerank meaning that more people won’t be able to see the application.
MinClip uses a computer’s Pagerank to determine how many people will be able to see the application. If there is a low Pagerank, then fewer people will be able to see the application and vice versa. The higher the page rank, the higher the chance that the application will be seen by more people.
