Everyone is in a hurry today and with the world turning into a smarter place, we are all looking to getting the most done in the shortest and smartest possible way. Thanks to technology things move real quick. All important transactions, information is exchanged via an SMS on your phones. Be it a bank’s statement or a reminder to pay your bill, all is kept in control by an SMS. And therefore, SMS still remains relevant in the world that is dominated by WhatsApp and other instant messaging application.
With most of us crippled to still using SMS, it has become easy fodder for every other company to target you with personalised offers in your SMS box throughout the day. Yes, not once not twice but the phone just keeps buzzing, with text blasts being the cheapest and the most effective way for all the marketers to reach you. As a result, your SMS box is filled with spam SMS’s it making it impossible at times to scrounge for the important messages amongst the heap of the junk. One sure has the option of choosing the Do Not Disturb (DND) but that does not work 100 % and it leaves your inbox flooding with promotional messages.
There is a salient need for a smart SMS solution which keeps your SMS’s organized and saves the horror of going through the communication irrelevant to you just eating up your valuable time. Emails have long ago started the solution of providing labels to your mails which keep them organised as per your priority. An organiser for the SMS in the current scenario would be really good and we have seen TrueCaller do it with TrueMessenger.

Ubox smartly creates the exact folders that you need understanding your requirement. It’s that simple! You only need to download the app and rest is all taken care off.
