Free Version:

- Very light-weight application, tiny install

- Works on KitKat

- Simple easy to user interface

- Supports SMS & MMS types of text messages, including MMS via email

- Reminder feature (persistent) for a keyword match for multiple senders

- Works great for scenarios where sender has different numbers each time (If your work for example sends texts from different numbers, but all begin with 712######, then just enter 712 as search string in ContactMatch to get a match

- Can enter search string to distinguish sender(s) (Contact # or email), then apply rules against (either email if coming via email, or phone # if coming via phone). Since it's a search string you can use just a partial # such as an area code, or domain name from email, etc (Could set to get persistent reminders for all email MMS texts sent from your work, for example).

- CustomContacts show a red Notification icon, while all other texts show a green icon

- Select actions for text from custom sender: Ignore only this sender, Only alert for this sender, Alert for everyone

- Spam filter option - prevent alerts for numbers with 6 digits or less

- Select custom sounds

- In-app volume control seperate from other system volumes

- Vibrate option

- Notification LED: blinks green for default senders, red for a match

- Many other options

Permissions Explained: (applies to both versions)

- Needed to process incoming SMS text message: RECEIVE_SMS, READ_SMS,

- Needed to process incoming MMS text message: RECEIVE_WAP_PUSH, RECEIVE_MMS

- Needed for vibrate option: VIBRATE

- Needed to translate incoming sender to a Contact in your phone: READ_CONTACTS

- Needed to keep device on while it is processing a message and alerting: WAKE_LOCK

- Needed for troubleshooting, but only used when Debug option or Email logs option in the menu is selected: READ_LOGS, WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE (allows logs to be written to storage device)


- Every phone and carrier is different, so make sure to test first!

- Disclaimer: Developer is NOT responsible for any missed texts!

- Within App, go into Menu Options to get Help or App info including versioning

- If you are having trouble with getting CustomContact to work, open a text from the sender you want to apply the rule to, select their message to get to message details or try to long press their actual message & click Details (differs on each phone). In there you should see the raw "From:" field. This is the field the app uses to search against for the CustomContact. Should be either a phone number or an email address.

- If you still can't figure it out, please send the Developer an email, along with the Logs (Menu Options-> Email Logs to Developer)

- Activate option in Menu Options should be ignored; Find the Pro version in the market to upgrade.
