SMS Organizer Allows You To Filter Your Text Messages
The humble and ubiquitous SMS (or text message) is one of the lowest common denominators for all ‘phones, as it’s supported by all current handsets. SMS is also used by businesses and systems to notify users of important information, but what happens if we receive dozens or even hundreds of text messages a day? It can be difficult separating service messages from people you might want to message back. One solution is in the shape of an app called the SMS Organizer, which allows customers to set up a series of rules and folders in order to process and sort messages.
The core of SMS Organizer is a simple rule-based system, which can be applied on both incoming and existing messages, with or without a timer delay. Messages are processed depending on a simple rule, typically the name of the recipient, and moved into an appropriate folder. It’s possible to set a delay on messages, so they will appear in the main inbox for a period of time before being moved into a relevant folder. This could be useful if you receive a number of status update messages, which are only relevant for a period of time. Messages may also be deleted after a period of time, which you might want from a security perspective if it’s your bank sending you account updates, for example. Folders can also be protected with an access PIN, another useful security feature. These options mean that you can use SMS Organizer to either archive or delete unnecessary messages so as to keep your inbox relatively clutter-free.
In use, SMS Organizer is simple and fast. It lacks many of the nice to have features we find on other messaging applications, for example, it’s missing profile pictures, and the interface for sending messages is very simplistic. However, this is Android and we can customise things! SMS Organizer does not have to become the primary messaging application. Instead, it can be used as a message viewing application, or to delete unwanted messages. A typical use case might be for an on-call technician receiving status updates via text message, or for a busy System Administrator receiving text messages every time users forget their password at all times of the day and night. Or maybe you want to be able to keep track of your bank’s text messages? As such, SMS Organizer is a specialist app, but it’s certainly useful.
