Best Android Apps: WeMail

by Reads (1,253)

WeMail aims to simplify your email inbox. Designed specifically for mobile use, it offers unique features – including organizing messages by sender rather than time, and voice-recorded notes – that help reduce clutter and make navigating your emails easier on your tablet or phone.

Setting up WeMail is painless and easy. Upon launching the app for the first time it asks for a compatible email, currently supporting Google, Outlook, Yahoo, and AOL email services.

After setting up your account, the emails are synced and rearranged according to WeMail’s organizational style. Unlike other apps that display every email individually, WeMail groups the emails together by sender regardless of when they arrive. Tapping on a grouped email will expand it, showing all of the individual messages from that sender.

It seems a bit strange at first, but WeMail’s unique setup results in a far less cluttered inbox. The design also makes it easier to deal with spam or multiple promotional emails sent by the same company/person, as it only takes one delete to get rid of all of them.

Individual email chains also look a bit different in WeMail. Instead of displaying the most recent email response with the rest minimized, WeMail displays each entry in a setup that looks familiar to a text message conversation. It’s easy to open a chain and quickly parse through it to find the information you need.

Much like Google’s Gmail, WeMail filters the inbox separating social updates and promotional emails into their own separate section. The app also offers a search engine, allowing users to find emails by subject, sender, or even by attachment.

WeMail -- Compose Message

Another interesting extra offered by WeMail is the note-to-self feature. Most people have, at one time or another, sent themselves an email as an easy way to store or transfer information. WeMail designates these messages in an individual tab, again helping reduce clutter from the inbox and making it easy to store and find these messages.

WeMail also advertises itself as the first app to offer voice messaging. The app allows users to respond to any email with a voice up to 20 seconds long, called a voice note. While the new feature is easy to use, be sure you already know what you want to say before clicking record. As soon as the message is recorded it’s automatically sent, meaning there’s no room for error. Unfortunately, the voice messages can only be listened by others using WeMail, so the utility of this feature is greatly diminished.

With a simplistic design and new unique features, WeMail makes navigating email on your tablet or phone easy and enjoyable. WeMail is currently available on the Google Play store, where is free to download.
