Inky for Mac: Ready for a Second Look
Is email ripe for disruption? The folks at Arcode, creators of alternative email client Inky for Mac, certainly think so and they have fresh code ready for your consideration.
Generally speaking, trying a new app can be risky vis-a-vis existing workflows and, especially, legacy files. Not so with Inky for Mac, an alternative email client that wants to change how you think about and use mail.
Fundamentally, whatever IMAP and POP services you have set up and running now on a server or in the Cloud remains inviolate. What Inky does is re-introduce you to Smart Views, Unified Inbox and Relevance Sorting via a Cloud-only service.
Inky automagically does the work, sorting and giving relevance to all of that stuff in ways that are useful and, frankly, thought provoking, which are a good things.
Inky for Mac: Stepping Up
When the Fairer Platform last looked at Inky for Mac, it was lacking (i.e. basic keyboard shortcuts, etc). Now, there is a new version (not Mavericks compatible) — the Twitterverse is heaping on the praise — that demands a second look.
“You’ll notice right away that your mail is easier to read,” writes Dave Baggett, Founder, Arcode. “We kept the things that Inky users liked and added new features…”
They include Icon Customization, Customizable Views, Sender Images, Filtered Inbox and, as noted, a Fresh Clean Look.
So, give Inky a look. Set up is easy and, whether you end up liking it or not, your only commitment is a few minutes of your time — ready to be disrupted…
What’s your take?
