Abandon all spam and promotional stuff from your SMS inbox with SmartSMS

We all are victims. Victims of this digital age and victims of incessant, never-ending spammed promotions from brands. No matter what you do, how loud you scold that sales executive over call, block numerous numbers from your phone, you still get those promotions in your SMS inbox. Its like a deadly disease virus, that creeps into you, no matter what vaccination/protection you go for.

And while there are multiple apps claiming to make your inbox completely spam-free, non de-clutters it like the one app we are talking about today — SmartSMS.

CoolBoots Media’s SmartSMS is one of the most comprehensive and feature-rich messaging apps on Android. It is ideal for users who receive a ton of spam or promotion messages, which is almost all of us now. While it has helped hundreds of thousands of users stay distraction-free by hiding unimportant messages, SmartSMS now shares important events like bill payments, flight details, insurance payment, due dates of EMI’s etc. This ensures that you are always on top of your finances by doing virtually nothing.

SMS inbox is an important mode of communication given that all critical information is reported daily through messages. All bank transactions, credit/debit card transactions, flight bookings, movie bookings, bill payments, loyalty points, everything gets routed via SMS multiple times in a day. However, the SMS experience has not changed for so many years. With the advent of Whatsapp, FB Messenger and other chat applications, users are now conditioned for a better interface and more gratifying experiences.

It is all about enhanced experiences and in order to change the way users engage with their SMS inbox, SMARTSMS, an AI (Artificial Intelligence) powered app was introduced in December 2017. The SMARTSMS app developed by CoolBoots Media creates a superlative user experience by automatically organizing text messages without any manual input from users. It uses AI and Machine Learning principles to create a superior experience of a very important daily usage app.

Our team is constantly striving towards evolving the product and transforming it from being a valuable app to a preferred tool for daily transactions. We are looking at innovative ways to make the app more productive for our users and are regularly adding new features
