My inbox was getting spammed from lots of offers\advertisement messages. I wanted to get rid of them. Also at the same time I wanted my banking message secure and locked and export any messages i want to export. That's why i have implemented this app.
I will be happy if it helps others also. :) Please mail me any feedback, issues to improve it.

Some advertisement messages don't have phone numbers if you see the SMS details. The sender of these SMS es may be something like LM-XXXX or anything in text (not a proper number and the prefix varies most of the time). For this messages if you want to create a filter instead of specifying the numbers you can use a pattern like *xxxx*. The app will filter the message if it contains xxxx in the sender’s phone number.
