Google has had an SMS service for quite awhile. Users simply text GOOGL (46645) with their request and Google will text them back the results. There are lots of things you can do with this service like:
 
Get Business Address and Phone Number
Text the business name and the zip code (or city and state)
 
Example: Wendy's 45044 or Wendy's Middletown Ohio
 
Get Directions
Text where you're at and where you need to be, and Google does the rest
 
Example: 123 Main St 45044 to 456 Someother Rd 45044
 
Get Movie Times
Text the name of the movie and the zip (or city and state) where you want to watch it, and Google will return movie times from the closest theaters
 
Example: Disturbia 45044
 
Get Weather
Text Weather and your zip code (or city and state), or simply text W and your zip (or city and state)
 
Example: W 45044
