On top of all the other cool things you can do with your mobile phone listed below you can now also keep a track of your horses. You send us a text with the word “FOLLOW” and the name of the horse and you’ll receive a text at 11am the day of their race, e.g. “FOLLOW VAUTOUR”.

So if you’ve been keep an eye on an up-and-comer or you don’t want to miss the next time your favourite star gets a run out this is the feature for you. Send the text to 51465 and get on with your life. Whenever your horse runs we’ll text you to let you know.

Did you know that text messages can be used for more than lying about being sick to your boss without having to put on a fake sick voice? Or sending naked pictures of yourself to, well, whoever?

That’s right text messages can be used to share information with friends, wish your mum happy birthday, send naked pictures of yourself to whoever AND now you can even place bets with Paddy Power with a simple text message.
