This is just an idea.
Is there anyway that ATS could implement an sms feature whereas when we get a breaking news ALERT! A text message is sent to everyone who has
subscribed to this (possible) feature?
This would work by using the points we have gained.
Lets say a certain amount of points to subscribe to the SMS feature first.
Then you have to purchase a certain amount of sms's to be sent like 300 points for each alert to be sent to your mobile, and you could have the
option to buy it in 10's,20's,30's etc.
You can then choose to have only one Breaking News ALERT sent to your mobile per day(Thats if there is a breaking news alert for that day)
We already have the Picture Messaging option where we can send images from our mobiles to ATS, we have PodCasts.
BUT for some reason we seem to be missing the biggest most used technology of our generation...SMS!
I know there will be some good explanation as to why we dont already have it but i personally dont know why(guessing it would be the cost).
The reason for this would be so ATS will get the best unbiased news alerts sent to their mobiles before anyone else, this would only be used when you
are not online so if there is some big breaking news and your online then obviously you wouldnt want the text being sent but if your away from your
computer you will be sent the text.
Would be nice to have a vote or something though.
What does everyone think?
