What is TBOX?

TBOX is an android app that helps you organize your business SMS messages. These are messages that are sent to you when you transact/interact with a business. Some businesses send you promotional messages related to deals and offers. Most of these messages come from short code (5 digit number), long code (10 digit number) or 6 digit sender id (e.g. LM-HDFCBK). We have over time developed a database of such numbers. We do not touch your personal messages (e.g. messages sent by your family, friends, relatives, individuals).

Why should I use TBOX?

  • You should use TBOX if you get lot of promotional messages. TBOX cleans your default SMS inbox by moving promotional messages to TBOX.
  • It helps you organize important business messages e.g. all messages from HDFC, ICICI and Citibank are shown under banks.
  • If your personal messages are buried under promotional messages, TBOX is for you.
  • Also, If you want a peace of mind from frequent sound alerts due to incoming promotional messages, TBOX is for you.

Story Behind TBOX !

A genuine problem that we faced specially during working hours and night was message alerts due to lot of messages from banks, e-commerce companies and many more business houses. Lot of times it came at odd hours in night. These messages were either transaction related info or marketing promotions and had little or no bearing on day to day working. Also, it cluttered our regular SMS inbox. Personal message from loved ones got lost under such business messages and it was difficult to find important messages. We thought that these messages can be managed better and thus started working on tbox app.

This is our attempt to give you some peace of mind from the business messages that you receive everyday. We are working really hard to improve this app. We have been using it for some time and have loads of ideas about how we can improve further. To send your ideas, send an email to mihir@tboxapp.in
