If you’re looking to shake up your iOS email experience, consider Skimbox, another new, free app that separates important messages from the other stuff; Birdseye Mail, which gives email the Flipboard treatment; or Mailbox, a popular app owned by Dropbox.

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.

What if statistical models about which email is important to you, based not only on things like volume of correspondence, but also observed behavior, could be applied to separate your email wheat from the chaff?


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.

Skimbox, of the two, is most clearly enterprise-focused, not that it doesn't also cater to consumers in this blurry world where personal and work lives intermingle.
