Use SMS to keep up to date with your favourite sites

It is now even easier to stay on top of the news from your favourite sites. offers a service that will send you a text message when something new is posted on a site that you are tracking. Better yet, you can also select keywords so that only those particular items will trigger an alert.

Web-alerts uses the FeedM8 engine to convert a site’s RSS feed into a mobile web site that you can then browse from your mobile device.

The service is available in both the US and Canada and is free although there may be SMS charges from your wireless carrier.
