Cloze is a free people-centric unified inbox management app that analyzes your social networks and messaging habits and associates a numeric value to the people you interact with most often. Cloze bases scores on factors such as the frequency of your interactions with people via social media and email. The higher their "score," the more prominent the sender's messages are when you open the Cloze app. If you don't like your friend's score you can manually change it.
Cloze brings together messaging from social networks such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook but also email accounts. The app will not replace your traditional inbox, but it goes a long way to prioritizing your time to focus on the people you care about the most. The app is available for the iPad and iPhone.
