No one likes to open their mailbox and find a pile of junk mail and solicitations in their box, right? The folks at Readabl have come up with a rather interesting solution with their PaperKarma application. The concept behind the application is quite simple, you create an account, scan the information from the junk sender, and upload it through the application. In order to create an account you will need to give some personal information such as your phone number and address, but this is required for them to make the stop requests on your behalf.
Once you receive some junk mail you wish to stop, you simply snap a picture of the senders information, you don't need to include your own since it is already in your account settings, and upload it through the application. The team at Readabl will submit a request to the offending company requesting you be removed from their lists, and just like that the junk mail ends. It will take a little bit of time to process on their end -- the image runs through the database of companies they have, and you can monitor the progress of the submission right through the application. After the submission has been processed you will receive a push notification to alert you. The only unfortunate thing is currently there is no control over the sounds it makes so you can't set them to silent, yet.
The process is so simple, you snap a picture, upload it and let the people behind the scenes do the work for you. Watch for results as you fetch less and less junk mail from your mailbox, and only the important things you wish to receive.
