Flycell is a high quality and well designed web site that sets out to meet your every need for fun mobile content. If you've been getting a bit sick of the site of your mobile phone recently, Flycell is bound to have something to give it a new lease of life. Wallpaper, ringtones, apps and games are all just a click away with Flycell so check out the links on this page to see what's on offer.
In a category that is home to some pretty awful site designs Flycell stands out as being very easy to navigate as well as attractively designed. Browsing through the huge library of ringtones is a breeze thanks to well thought out sections and obvious controls. All the information you could want is displayed in an easy to read manner and a swift click on the song title starts a preview of the ringtone playing. Other mobile content is equally easy to browse through and we particularly liked the top 10 lists and staff picks to give you some ideas if you are stuck for inspiration.
In terms of variety of content we rate Flycell pretty highly. There are featured ringtones from all the latest chart toppers and the site is updated to keep up with the latest trends. It's not all chart hits though, if your tastes are at the other end of the spectrum you will be glad to find a large jazz and world music section to download from. However, the wallpaper section isn't quite so varied and it would be fair to say we have seen a better selection on other sites. There are a few entertaining animated backgrounds if your sense of humour hasn't matured much beyond that of a 7 year old, but that's about it. One small saving grace is the batch of themes which will style your whole phone at once – Garfield was a particular favourite!
Apps and games are also well represented on Flycell. The games on offer will work on anything from an old Java based mobile phone to the latest Android handsets so there's no need to worry about compatibility. While you might not find the most popular games you read about in the press, there are still plenty of old classics that are just as much fun to play. As well as games to pass the odd five minutes here and there, you will find plenty of apps aimed at helping you improve your lifestyle or make simple tasks easier. However, the number one app at the time of writing is a multiplayer memory game which lets you test yourself against the world.
Content can be purchased individually on Flycell or you can sign up to the monthly subscription service which gives you a set amount of credits to spend each month. If you find yourself regularly buying content, the subscription probably makes most sense as it gives you the most for your money. However, credits don't carry over so you do need to spend everything in one month.
Overall we think Flycell offers decent value for money and a good selection of content. Ringtones are certainly the strongest area for Flycell, but you will be able to find everything you need to completely customize your phone. If you have a few dollars to spare why not check it out now?
