Try a beta SMS alert application

Hi Contractors

This is not part of the official oDesk service, but we have created a free application (in beta) that will send you an SMS every time an employer sends you an interview message. You need to authorize it using your oDesk account, and it uses the APIs to send an SMs alert. I am trying to figure out if a feature like this is useful for oDesk contractors, and it's free for now.

- This only works during the interview
- This only works for a user to user message
- There is no security or legal risk in using it
- This is not part of - it's a separate application

Check it out - and please write feedback about this application here.

Note: this SMS service can be turned off or changed at any time since this is a trial run.
