Imagine receiving an alert when the weather changes, or when there’s traffic somewhere, or breaking news about some celebrity… That’s what Yahoo! Alerts did. I remember every morning when I open my Yahoo! Messenger, weather alerts would popup on my screen.
Unfortunately, like all good things, Yahoo! Alerts service will be coming this January. No reason was given as to why the service will be discontinued, they recommend you set alerts for each of theirs sub-sites on the websites themselves. I used this service for a while, but with new websites like IFTTT, I wouldn’t need the service much.
What service, website or app do you use for alerts?
