While there are other services that let you fetch web pages via email, SnapAsk pulls just the relevant parts and doesn’t require you to know the full web address of a page.

You may also use SnapAsk to get movie timings, flight information, local time, traffic conditions, match scores and latest weather information on your cell phone. Thanks Steve.
