App lets you customise SMS notifications

Mumble! is an Android app that uses custom alerts to give more information about the type of text message users receive before they look at their device.


Developed by Jordan Elvidge, the app uses smart algorithms to detect the type of message that’s been received, and offers varying vibration alerts to give users a better idea of its content. For example, Mumble! can make your phone vibrate more for longer messages and less for shorter messages.

It can even outright ignore useless messages like k, lol, or typo mesages like *messages. The app can even scan the message for positive or negative keywords, and play a custom alert so that if users are having a bad day they can avoid reading less happy texts.

Tailored alerts can also be set up indicate questions, rude messages, spam or emergency situations before they choose to open them.
