MyToday offers RSS Feed updates via Email / SMS. The SMS updates are limited to Indian cellphone users. The service is free, so do not expect instant updates.
I read this first on Pavan’s blog. Being online around the clock, personally I don’t need a service like this. But tested it on request of few orkutfeeds users and so posting how I used it!
Following is with reference to mobile version of MyToday…
#Register with MyToday (Its free)
- To register, sms REG to 098452 98452. Only for Indian cellphone users.
- They send back a password to the mobile.
#Login to MyToday
- Use your mobile number and password to login.
For convenience, your all setting at MyToday can be reached from My World Link.
#Adding a RSS Feed
- Go to My World >> feeds >> manage feeds option. [Direct Link]
- You will see a list of folders there as well as option to create a new one. For time being select SMS. [Direct Link]
- Now put anything in Name, enter feed URL and check Send SMS option and click create. Thats it!
You can add as many feeds you want. But only time I received updates is around 10PM IST. So I guess they check all feeds only once per day!
#Useful MyToday Link –
- MyAccount – You can add email address/ change password and perform other tasks.
- Sitemap – In case you want to explore more!
Thanks for mentioning… You have better reach than me…
Hey its k.. Keep posting good content and you will be on top! 🙂
Nice one! I have added feeds to comments on my blog, and I do get a couple of SMSes per day… Although, did you try adding feeds for your Scrapbook as mentioned in many other blogs like OrkutPLus and TechPavan? When I tried to do as they mentioned, I keep getting the following error:
*Could not add to feeds: Feed not supported* 🙁
I tested it using my scrapbook feed and it worked!
I guess the problem is with MyToday or some other misconfiguration… 🙁
sir daily mytoday messages are not come here
Sorry man… can’t help about mytoday.
reason is here…
If the time lag could be reduced..
using this with orkutfeeds would be soo nice..
but.. as for now.. its sad that you get sms after soo long times, that it is practically useless.
Check official Orkut SMS feature.
It amy help you. 🙂
change the subscription number 9845398453 to 9845298452.
Thanks for update buddy. 🙂
not working for me
its comin as feed not supported wen i pasted my orkut scrap book page URL
wat 2 do now
You must have pasted some invalid feed urls…
Check it again.. FYI 1 more thing..
though they would accept your request, they won’t deliver feeds by SMS.. so forget Mytoday’s feed by SMS service
Because of overload on their server, Mytoday discontinued this service without ny official notice 🙁
But you need not worry.. I’ve discovered another trick for getting scraps on mobile. Check this post
in my 2day dey changed the number na
i saw it ij their official website
ya now i have registered for google sms channels
let me how effective it is to receive orkut scraps.
Guess this would really help you out..
Do let us know your feelings 🙂
U can try this. I find it is way better than official orkut mobile scrap notification feature.
