smsBlocker: An ‘Intelligent’ Software to Filter Unwanted & Spam SMS

By June 21st, 2010 AT 4:37 PM

If you are using a mobile phone, you must have faced the problem of annoying spam SMS. They just come at any odd time and there was nothing you could do about it. But now you have an instant solution to this nuisance of unsolicited marketing SMS on your mobile.

Try smsBlocker, a Pune-based mobile application firm Optinno Mobitech’s solution to those never ending Spam text messages giving you details about that ‘Lifetime Free credit card, bank loans, million dollar lottery, or shopping offers’.

The brainchild of engineer Sagar Bedmutha, the unique feature of this innovative software called smsBlocker is that it blocks spam SMS automatically. The application, however, recognizes the important alert messages like the bank alerts, booking confirmations and does not block those.

Another interesting feature is, the smsBlocker recognizes all spam messages, even if they are written in a mixture of languages, like the popular ‘Hinglish’. This added feature is useful in particular to mobile users in India who keep on getting the ring tone or bhavishya kind of sms spam. Apart from this, you can filter the SMS based on your own preferences also.

There is a facility to see and restore back the blocked SMS. And a small block counter on your mobile Home-screen gives you the count of SMS blocked in that day.

Sagar Bedmutha Founder & CEO Optinno Mobitech Pvt. Ltd.

In an exclusive talk with Telecom Talk, Mr. Sagar Bedmutha, CEO- Optinno Mobitech, claimed that they have studied more than 3,000 patterns of spam SMS to design the logic of smsBlocker.

From his findings, Mr. Bedmutha explained to us some of the interesting points as- how the spammers spam differently at local level and national level, how they ‘time’ the message (did you notice you get more spam on weekends regarding the restaurant offers or movies).

This new product has been optimized to work on the Symbian Operating System (OS). “In India, 60 per cent of mobile handsets are from Nokia, so we chose to make our software for the symbian OS used by Nokia. The smsBlocker can be installed on some of the Sony and Samsung mobiles too.” Bedmutha added.

The company is offering lifetime license of SMS smsBlocker worth Rs.99 ($ 2.00) for FREE as a limited period offer. You can get it from www.smsblocker.in
