Designed for people who like to use PC based software applications but prefer the convenience of an interface that is designed for touchscreens, TouchMail offers a great deal. This free app is simple to download and provides a quick way of getting through all of your incoming emails no matter where you happen to be when using your tablet or smartphone.

All email handled

The idea behind TouchMail is that it can turn all of your existing email accounts into something that is visually easier to navigate around, ideal if you access these accounts from a touchscreen laptop computer or mobile device. It is able to access Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail, for example, and create more colorful, visual tiles for them which are then easy to explore with either your fingers or your mouse. The makers claim that their rich, three dimensional visualizations make the app the fastest and simplest method to keep your inbox up to date. By using all of the familiar gestures you are already used to, it becomes child's play to browse your emails in a meeting or to delete unwanted ones when you are out and about. The app supports Microsoft products like Outlook.com and Office 365, but is equally at home with third party service such as AOL and iCloud. Visually designed, the software allows users to see profile pictures or logos of their emails' senders which means everything happens in an intuitive manner.

Email from any service with any device

One of the key features of this app, other than the way it visually presents your email accounts, is that it allows users to read their emails even when they are not online. The app offers support for accounts with custom usernames and you can change this at will with just a tap of your finger. Other one touch options allow you to add filters so that you can just see unread messages or look at emails which have attachments only, as preferred. The service provides the ability to add signatures to your emails and to look at all of your email accounts from just one location. Of interest to anyone who maintains several email accounts and who receives a large number of electronic mails a day will be the app's color coding feature. This allows users to preset a color for emails that relate to family members, for instance, as well as other colors for work correspondence, friends emails, etc. One handy feature that has been developed is that the app will allow you to open it in the place where you last left, if desired, a superb way of making sure you respond to all of your important messages without missing anything. When filtering out spam, the software also allows you to delete a message by pushing up on its tile, so it provides a great deal of user adaptability.

Efficient emailing

TouchMail is a useful tool for bringing emails together in a single place and for dealing with large numbers of them rapidly and efficiently. It is of most use, however, when used on a mobile device where finger swiping and tapping is going to be put to use due to its clever design style.
