If your life is a non-stop stream of smartphone messages you might want to know which ones are actually worth your attention before you take the time to pick up your phone, and aims to help with that.
Using a series of vibrations or sounds it will give you insight into the content of a message. For example, longer messages will have longer alerts, while messages framed as a question will have a different sound at the end of the alert.
And it goes further, also altering notification sounds based on keywords or tone, so you have an idea of whether a message is positive or negative, urgent or work-related.
You can also add your own filters, so that the app will pick up on (or ignore) specific words and phrases, and you can customize the types of alerts you get, opting for long or short vibration patterns, or to use sounds instead.
Converbration is also versatile, working with SMS, WhatsApp, Kik, Facebook Messenger, Allo, Google Hangouts, Viber, LINE, Telegram, VKontakte, WeChat, BBM, Kakao Talk, Yahoo Messenger, imo, Tango, GroupMe, hike messenger, and textPlus (with more to come, if you can believe that).
Get it customized how you want it, and get used to what the different alerts sound like, and you’ll never again pick up your phone just to find a generic ‘k’ or ‘lol’ response. The app is free, or you can pay $3.99/£3.79 to get rid of adverts.
