Mac|Life: Skimbox Review

 

Triage email apps have forever changed our inboxes. Where we used to have dozens of messages we could barely keep track of, we now have a system of sorting unique to our needs. Apps like Mailbox and Dispatch do a fantastic job of keeping our messages moving, but there's still a danger that we could forget an important email that's been tucked out of view.

Skimbox addresses such concerns with a smarter approach to email filtering.

TechCrunch: Skimbox Goes Beyond Email Triage With A “Priority Inbox” App For Consumers & Enterprise

A new application called Skimbox is attempting to take on the heady challenge of fighting email overload in a way that makes sense for both consumers and the enterprise. The app, launching first on iOS, uses the concepts popularized by Mailbox – with its various swipes and gestures – as a way to move through email messages. But Skimbox’s core idea does not involve email triage – it’s about intelligently surfacing the most relevant email messages you need to see first, similar to Gmail’s “Priority Inbox” feature adopted by heavy email users.

Finding an enterprise IT company at a startup gathering these days can be like searching for an obscure email in a crowded inbox.

But in prepping to attend Tuesday night's Web Innovators Group (Webinno) event in Cambridge, Mass., I did find one, and maybe two enterprise-focused newcomers: Skimbox and Qbaka.

CNET: Ready or not, iPhone 5S pushes apps into the 64-bit future

Don't expect a 64-bit version anytime soon of Skimbox, an e-mail app due to ship this fall. "Ideally we'd wait until the old 32-bit only phones weren't supported or had a very small user base, so we wouldn't have to develop both 32-bit and 64-bit versions," said Brian Barnes, Skimbox's director of marketing.

Nathan Zeldes: All Right! Email is Finally Adapting to the New Millennium!

Skimbox is an email app for the iPhone that automatically sorts your incoming messages into two tabs: those you need to act on (“Mainbox”) and those you can just skim through, or ignore altogether (“Skimbox”).

Gander uses a responsive design to create a virtual inbox that lets you drag and drop emails into “read” “skim” and “respond” sections. It works with Exchange or Gmail, and its tagline is that it will “always put meeting requests ahead of cat videos.”
