It’s an annoyance to keep checking a site or your RSS reader every now and again to stay on top of the latest news, right? Instead, wouldn’t it be great if you could just receive a text message every time it’s updated? It’s Web-Alerts.com, and what it does is let you punch in a website with an RSS feed or the site directly, and then updates get forwarded to your phone. You get a preview, therefore you only need to go online if its worthy of your time. There’s also a really neat feature that lets you use keywords to nit pick just what you fancy. Sounds expensive? Not all all, it’s free. The again, you might have to talk to your carrier about being charged for incoming text messages, but if you aren’t, you’re in the clear! Now you’ll never have to miss out on the breaking news as it happens.
PS. I did not get paid to post this! I actually could use the service.
