Folks from XDA Developers has spotted that SMS Organizer is now coming to the US, UK and Australia today. The app uses a machine learning to automatically sort out and organize messages into separate folders. Messages will then be segregated to different categories such as Personal, Transaction and Promotional.

The tabs at the bottom of the tab will then represent all the categories. The SMS Organizer does not notify users for promotional messages and will automatically filter spam messages and store it in “promotions” folder. Also, the app automatically deletes these messages every after a few days or weeks.

When it comes to contextual reminders in your SMS like flights, trains and movies, the app notifies you right away. It even helps with keeping track with your due payments and balance accounts.

The reminders can be accessed by swiping left or right across the page or tapping the Reminders and Finance tabs in the top bar. Moreso, an Offer tab which shows available discount and coupon offering for food delivery, hotel and travel bookings, movies and many more.
