Taking A Look: Unroll.Me
In this particularly fast-paced world email has become one of the fastest ways to keep in touch with people. One of the things that people like about email is that it can be sent and received in a moment’s notice. People and businesses receive a few to hundreds if not thousands of emails each day. One of the things that overwhelm a person is the amount of junk mail that can pile up. Lianne Cassavoy took a look at Unroll Me and she gives people an honest take on the service.
She says that there are many things to like about the service and one thing that could be improved. She says the way the service works is by scanning an email to look for subscriptions the person has. This initial scan of the account only takes a few minutes and can be completed quickly. She says the service works for Gmail, Yahoo, and Google right now but more services may be added in the future.
One of the things that Lianne really liked about the service was that she could schedule when her daily email can come. This can save people and businesses a lot of time rather than going through an exhaustive list. One of the things that she found was that some of her colleagues’ emails were being put in the subscription the service can be told to place those emails in the inbox.
She says that if you have more than one email each one has to be put in separately to Unroll Me. This way the service can determine which accounts the user has are still active. One of the things that can be improved on the service is the list of emails. There should be a priority list so people can find the email they need quickly rather than sorting through hundreds at a time.
She says the service has promise but it needs to be able to keep priorities in place. If the kinks can be sorted out in the coming months Unroll.Me is a service that could really come to the forefront of battling junk mail.
