Random Pagan Verse:
To love a woman whose ways are false
Is like sledding over slippery ice
With unshod horses out of control,
Badly trained two-year-olds,
Or drifting rudderless on a rough sea,
Or catching a reindeer with a crippled hand
On a thawing hillside: think not to do it.

It might sound frustrating for hardcore Windows Phone fans that Microsoft is focusing so much on Android and iOS, but the software giant does the same thing again, this time with a so-called SMS Organizer app created by Microsoft Garage.

Exclusively available for Android users and aimed at the Indian market (at least for the moment), SMS Organizer was specifically created to fight SMS spam, so it comes with features that can block promotional messages and allow only the important messages to get through.

Before anything, itís important to know that this application is still in beta stage, but anyone can register and give it a try here.

Feature lineup
First and foremost, the application can move incoming messages to categories like important and promotional using its own machine learning systems that can group them in folders based on subject and content.

Additionally, it can issue notifications, such as reminders for paying bills, movies, or travel, after analyzing each message. The app supports both cards and notifications, so itís fully integrated with the features that Android comes with.

Users can also favorite SMS for quick access, block spam, and mark senders as promotional to make sure that its algorithm becomes more effective for future messages.

And whatís also very important is that SMS Organizer does not require a permanent Internet connection, as all the magic happens on the device. Its filters work correctly even in offline mode, Microsoft promises.

Before blaming Microsoft for launching this app exclusively on Android, keep in mind that itís created by Microsoft Garage, the firmís group for experimental projects. Many of Microsoft Garageís apps are available on non-Windows platforms and a very small number of them actually make it to Windows 10 or Windows 10 Mobile.

In the meantime, SMS Organizer is yet to make its way to the store, but depending on how development advances, it could be released for all Android users in the coming months.
