How do I find cleverly designed and useful applications to review for Mac, iPhone, or iPad? Mac360’s readers help out by sending me their list of favorites. I browse the web for what looks like an interesting and affordable utility.
And, there are icons. I’m a sucker for application icons. They’re the headlines of applications. Here’s a perfect example. The app is called Clean Email. The icon is the email @ icon with a brush. Clever. I had to check it out.
If there is anything to hate about modern technology it’s email. Email is a scourge upon mankind from less than benevolent gods who would make us mad before our destruction. If you struggle to reach Inbox Zero, then Clean Email might help.
If your mailbox is overloaded with unread and unwanted emails and you don’t know where to start – clean up emails with… Clean Email… helps you manage your mailbox – group and organize, remove, label, and archive emails.
What’s not to like about what I could or should do with the free email app I use daily but still can’t figure out how to get to Inbox Zero?
Clean Email looks and feels much like an email application on your Mac, but it logs into each email account and gives you options to organize, remove, archive, label, and even move messages; in bulk instead of one message at a time.
The app comes with smart views and rules and filters so you can do the deed with hundreds of email messages at once, instead of struggling to figure out what to do with each message, one message at a time.
That can be a big time saver, folks.
The smart views alone are worth Clean Email’s rather interesting and unusual price tag. Check bounced email, sort through spam and junk mail, get rid of messages where you were copied or cc’d but not relevant, sort via various filters, get rid of subscriptions and newsletters.
It does not take much effort, either.
If your Mac’s email has barely a dozen or two messages to organize, Clean Email is overkill. If you’re sitting on many dozens or hundreds of messages in the Inbox because you’re afraid to throw anything out, or just can’t bare the effort of managing and organizing messages one at a time, then Clean Email can be a killer app for you to help kill the drudgery email brings.
Clean Email comes with the new age subscription method, but also a sharing option, and since you may not need it to clean out your email messages all the time– but only when it begins to clog up– a monthly price tag seems oddly appropriate.
