Download Junkman, and let the artificial intelligence do most of the work instead of you hunting for keywords.

Junkman is a productivity app for iOS 15 or later. It can classify incoming messages as normal, junk, transaction or promotion. It will not classify old messages. It works completely locally on your device without the need for any network connectivity.

Junkman primarily uses a state-of-the-art machine learning algorithm called Smart Filter, that is trained with thousands of messages in English and Turkish languages. This results in an artificial intelligence that uses the Neural Engine in the latest iOS devices which can detect the language of a message and then check and classify the message contents. The Smart Filter can differentiate between normal, transaction and junk messages instantly. It treats all promotion messages as junk.

In case you would like to override the classification of the Smart Filter, you can enter the information of a sender to one of the Safe, Junk, Transaction and Promotion sender lists in the app.

If you don't receive English or Turkish messages, and you only receive messages in other languages, you can disable the Smart Filter completely and manage senders using the sender lists.

If you think the Smart Filter did not classify one or more messages correctly, you can report them from the Messages app (iPhone only) for review. This way, you can help train the Smart Filter to be even better!
