There's no room for indecision with the $2 iPhone email app Triage. And that's a good thing, because too often email can be a procrastinator's trap. Triage is brilliantly simple in the way it helps you pare down your inbox.
To get started, you link one or more email accounts to the app. Next, open up Triage and new messages associated with your email account appear as a stack of cards. Simply flick messages up to archive them, or flick them down to keep them your inbox (they remain marked as unread). Tapping the message lets you view it and compose a short reply.
The beauty of Triage is it forces you to make quick decisions about what email to save or chuck. You can't skip ahead to the next message without making a choice. Triage supports Gmail, Yahoo and iCloud mail accounts, and most email services that support IMAP.
