With new iPhone app Triage, we may finally have a decent solution to email overload.
The point of Triage is to keep things as easy as possible.
Users can quickly flip through messages and either archive, reply with a quick message on the spot, or keep message unread to get to later.
Apple blogger John Gruber said that after using Triage for a while, “I’m more caught up on my email than I have been in years.”
There are so many products and services meant to lighten the email load, but many just make it more of a chore. We thought ultra-hyped app Mailbox would be the solution to our email issues but it wasn’t. Triage is a welcome alternative.
Triage works with Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and iCloud with support for more email services on the way.
Want to see what it looks like and how it works?
Triage is a new iPhone email app that helps you stay on top of your inbox. It's available for iPhone and will set you back $1.99.
Choose your email provider. It looks very similar to when you set up an email account in Apple's stock Mail app.
While in the expanded view you only have a few options. Tap the top bar to get more information about the message or tap the arrow icon in the bottom right to go to the brief view.
And if you want to keep something unread so you'll see it later, swipe down. But it won't show up in Triage again. If this were a message that let you type out a quick response on the spot you can do that as well and be done.
