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.

re: 10 Tools To Beat Email Overload
Tools and programs are great at helping to combat email overload.

But the best way is to send less and receive fewer.

A better way to manage email newsletter subscription
Hi,

I think that you might be interested in beta testing our new project (our tagline is "Your inbox will thank you" ...).

With a friend, I am working on this project whose goal is to provide a way for people to better manage their email newsletter subscriptions. Closetoshop generates a unique email address for each subscription, and will send you a digest containing all of your newsletters once a day.

Your inbox won't be overloaded anymore, you avoid the frequent distraction of new mail arriving during the day, and you can easily put a stop to unwanted messages.

Just take a look at http://closetoshop.com (you can create an free account).

For more detailed information, please read the FAQ (in English) : http://faq.closetoshop.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=faq_en

Don't hesitate to contact us, we need your feedback !
