Say hi to your android "Postman"

How often did you tell yourself  "Damn I wish I could block that SMS ?" or "Why does Android NOT come with an option to create Sms's Filters and move them to specific folders."

So say hello to "Postman".  Postman is an application that you would want to install and use as a replacement, instead of the standard boring messaging client that ships with your android phone.


Some of the main features that would make you want to use Postman are :
  • Store messages in appropriate folders
  • Create multiple filters based on the senders numbers or a particular message body and move them to specified folders.
  • Completely block an Sms from even reaching your phone
  • Back and Restore Sms's on any android phone

And for you geeks out there the application will be completely open source https://github.com/reinwald so you could tweak it to your fancy.

An initial very rough mock-up of how the main interface would look



I am just in the initial phase of developing Postman and would be done with a beta version that would hit the android market in a few months.

Do you like the idea of Postman ? and have any suggestions that you would like Postman to do for you when you receive an SMS?  Do let me know by, reaching me at reinwald@gmail.com or post a comment here or even follow my blog .Looking forward to hearing from you...

Till next time...

  1. How about creating something like a 'Priority Inbox' like the one in Gmail?
