E pluribus unum (for inboxes)

There’s no shortage of e-mail apps out there. But Inky provides features that lay the groundwork for it to become a serious contender in the space. The app promises to be a great organizational tool for multiple accounts, and makes it easy to sort out messages such as promotions. It also makes it easier for users to unsubscribe from mailing lists, by providing a link to do so within the app. You can reply to messages with a “one-click” option that inserts standard phrases such as, “You forgot the attachment.”

The menus and features of Inky are easy to use and provide a unified inbox experience. In some moments, however, the app seems to slow down just enough to be annoying — something that the Bethesda, Md., company behind it will have to fix. The app is free for a limited time on iOS devices. An Android app is in development.
