TEL AVIV, Israel & SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Perion, developer of the innovative Incredimail for iPad app, announced today that its new email client has been downloaded over 400 thousand times in just over three months since it launched. The company also revealed that users are highly engaged by the app, using it several times a day and swiping through eight pages of mails every time they use the app.
Incredimail for iPad launched just three months ago and brought a radically new email experience to users. The app reimagines email and it has been designed specifically for a touch interface. The app allows users to flip, swipe, and peak through their emails with a beautifully designed magazine-like interface. The whole experience has been centered on making reading emails easier and more enjoyable.
The Killer Feature Of An Email Client
Much of the discussion surrounding email clients today is focused on reaching “Inbox Zero” – having no unread emails. The discussion surrounding this issue has framed Inbox Zero as the Holy Grail of email clients. Following feedback and conversations with its users on the importance of clearing their inboxes, Perion discovered two key results: users do indeed place a high priority on clearing their inbox; users are already succeeding in doing so. These results run counter to the popular belief that users are struggling to clear their inboxes.
“It’s clear that marking all messages as read is important to users, but it’s also a goal most users are already achieving,” said Josef Mandelbaum, CEO of Perion. “What has been sorely lacking is a new paradigm for email that makes the process more enjoyable and focuses on the core email experience – reading messages. Incredimail for iPad is optimized for reading and enjoying your emails, and leverages the power, simplicity, and inviting nature of touch devices to do so.”
Incredimail for iPad was designed with the central focus of making it more enjoyable and easier to read mails, not just filing messages away or marking them as read. The redesigned inbox, with its large previews, peek feature that lets user quickly see the content of an email, and swipeable layout with multiple messages displayed at once, allows users to quickly scan through their emails and pull out the relevant content. Additionally, users can see content such as photos, videos, and articles from within the app thanks to Incredimail’s snippet feature, helping to ensure the most pleasant email experience.
Additionally, usage data from its iPad app show that users are highly engaged by the app and the streamlined experience it provides for reading email. Active users enter the app an average of three times per day and are swiping through inbox pages up to eight times per session. Additionally, the app has seen 37 million total page swipes, 23 million total emails received, and over 34.5 million push notifications.
Performance Enhancements And New Features
In the latest Incredimail for iPad version users will find significant performance improvements making the fast software even faster. Incredimail now offers enhanced capabilities to assist with archiving, managing and moving messages to folders directly from full screen message view for a much smoother experience. Additionally, Incredimail is the first email app which allows users to share content directly to Facebook from within the app.
Additionally, the app has now been localized for seven additional languages including: Chinese (Mandarin & Traditional), Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish (Spain).
