    Yeah I think it's a bit shady for companies to ask that you provide them with free work. I've encountered that once, but generally I've found that the test was part of the in-person interview process and was more of a whiteboard exercise that had nothing do with the product or service of that company. My guess is that it allows them to get a sense of your problem solving abilities as well as how you can articulate your ideas and defend your solutions - things that may or may not come across in your portfolio.
