I came across an iOS app called Unroll.Me that literally cut a substantial amount of time that I spend on checking email and I sure need to mention it to you.
Unroll.me currently works with Gmail, Google Apps, Yahoo Mail, AOL, iCloud, and Outlook. I would not manage my Outlook with Unroll.me since I get so many personal emails from co-workers throughout the day but my gmail account was a different story. Gmail is my main mailbox and preferred communication channel for personal and business. This app works amazingly well with gmail.
Classifying your inbox with Unroll.Me is easy
The whole idea is to let the app connect to your email account and classify your past emails when you first run it. Yes, you need to login to Unroll.me on a consistent basis to classify the new email you receive but it is WELL worth the time. Classifying email is as easy as swiping right/left/up or just touching buttons. The classification is either you unsubscribe from a mailing list or roll the mail into one email a day or keep it as new.
Time Savings with Roll Ups
So all my Victoria’s Secret, Buckle, DSW, Macy’s, coupons and everything store email I have now come to my inbox bundled up as only one a day digest! The Rollup is a once-daily digest containing all of the selected subscriptions you receive each day. Last email I got had 29 emails inside it. Think about it! I had to go through these emails 29 times a day here and there and decide what action to take. How much time would that take? 29 minutes minimum but what about the interruption it causes throughout your day. Instead with Unroll.me I now get one email. When I want the interruption, I go check my emails, I open up Unroll.me and go through them all at once. My email has never been as quite like this before in a VERY long time. I find myself not checking email as much as I used to since I know I won’t get as much and this is a concept that I am loving getting used to.
Doesn’t cost you anything!
I can’t believe this app is literarily FREE. At first I was suspicious cause I didn’t know if this would work for me cause my email inbox is near and dear to me. But now that I am used to the clutter free email I don’t think I can go back. Thank you is all I am going to say. I mean it!
