There’s a new breed of email apps trending these days. These apps are designed to help users get productive with their inboxes and ultimately reach inbox zero. They have several common denominators, including gestures, action-based functionality, scheduling, and integration with other productivity tools like tasks and calendars. They make for a good compliment to project management apps such as Clarizen, Wrike, or JIRA, making your work life that little bit more manageable.
A growing number of these email apps have been released to the public, signalling evident interest in this approach to email. I’ve managed to round up ten (10) email apps that fit into this trend, some of which you may or may not have heard of before. Let’s take a look at these email apps and see what they have to offer users in need of a more effective and flexible solution to email.
There’s been a ton of hubbub in the past year or so about achieving Inbox Zero, which is apparently some sort of Nirvana for the Millenials, as they’re called. Well, I’ve got news for you: it’s not going to happen. There’s no app that will make Inbox Zero work for you because, as a concept, Inbox Zero is idiotic — no intended offence, of course. The problem isn’t that people get too much email. The problem is that our email spends too much time trying to get our attention.
A ton of people, though, have understandably misunderstood this. Instead of trying to make meaningful differences in the way we check, read, and send email, most apps are trying to make differences in the way we categorize it. That’s wrong. The Delete button is my favourite, and if you think there’s any other way to truly get rid of everything in your inbox, you’re cheating.
So I’m excited to say this: myMail is the email app that actually solves the problem. Read on for more about what this app does so well.
