Use WordPress as a mobile content/SMS CMS with WordpreSMS. People text in and get SMS content up to 600 characters long back (concatenated SMS).
The end user sends a couple of keywords to a short code to get the content. The default keyword is BLOG followed by an account keyword of your choice (e.g. BOB) and an optional subkeyword (e.g. ADDRESS). The keywords are not case sensitive.
The end user will send: BLOG BOB ADDRESS to your country short code and receive the Address of your blog back as an SMS.
You can also choose either a dedicated keyword or a dedicated short code at additional costs if you're not happy with the defaults.
