Hi John - these are a couple of things I¹ve used them forŠ

1. Adding them to timetable events that students can sync to their
calendars. Clicking the urls opens a custom app that provides them with
access to all the learning resources associated with the event.

2. Installing configuration profiles (list of students, assessors,
questions etc) on an iPad-based assessment app - the custom url contains
the path to an encrypted dropbox file containing the profile data

The text message thing should work just fine.
