With the recruiting season heating up it would be really nice to have some sort of alert for commitments. It could be used for other big news as well. This could be done via text alert or a mobile app with push notifications. I would imagine that text alerts with a link to an article would be easier to get off the ground. However, an app for smart phones seems inevitable. If you advertised that the app could give you an alert when there is major news like a commitment then that would encourage people to download it.
