Alto is an innovative new email app that helps you organize your inbox through cool tools like Cards and Stacks so you don't have to go through it all. With its latest update, you even get Calendar integration.

Browse your email by Stacks. In Alto, you can view a traditional email inbox, or you can sift through the email by Stacks. These allow you to see email that's personal, email you've snoozed, messages that contain files, or ones that include photos. There are plenty of other Stacks, too: unread, starred, shopping, travel, finance, and social. It's a great way to organize your email by topic, allowing you to focus on what's important at that time. You won't be distracted by Facebook email notifications, for example, when you're trying to sort through the email your colleagues used to send you the latest version of the TPS report. You can even create your own Stack, a custom and gorgeous way of putting email filters into place for those ultra-important messages.

View your day at a glance from the Dashboard

View your day at a glance from the Dashboard. The latest version of Alto adds calendar support, allowing you to manage your email and events within the same app. Just go to your Dashboard, and you'll see your day laid out for you. Alto goes through your email messages and figures out events and travel itineraries, putting those into the proper place for you along with your normal calendar information. It makes it easy to stay focused on your time, and never miss a flight again. You can add items to your calendar straight from within Alto, either by hand or from the Stack items that Alto displays in your Dashboard for you.

Snooze email for later. Received an important email that you need to act on later and don't want to forget? Just Snooze it until the right time to work on it, and you won't have to worry about forgetting. Alto will hide it from your view, temporarily, and then bring it back to the top of your Inbox at just the right time. You can't forget to turn in that TPS report when you've got Alto by your side -- the app will remind you when it's due by popping the email from your boss right to the top of your inbox for you to act on it.

App Store Description

Control. It’s not just for Janet Jackson anymore.

Alto hands you back the reigns to your inbox. Want to see all your file attachments, flight schedules or photos organized and in one place? No problem, Alto does it automatically for you. Want real-time alerts about package deliveries or flight changes? Rest easy. Alto’s got you covered.

Download Alto for free and say goodbye to digging through tons of email for that one message. No more losing track of order confirmations or flight updates. No more excuses for being late when you can call for a Lyft ride or Uber from right inside the app!

All Your Email Accounts, Together at Last
Alto keeps all your email accounts in one place—Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo!, iCloud, Hotmail, AOL Mail and even your corporate accounts. We support Microsoft Exchange and any account that uses IMAP.

Real-time Travel and Shopping Alerts
Whether you have a last-minute gate change or an important delivery gets delayed, Alto brings you alerts in a simple, easy-to-use format. View your latest orders and track your packages with the tap of a finger.

Dashboard’s Got You Covered
Alto's Dashboard gives you a view of the most relevant and timely information in your inbox. Get helpful Cards for events, flight updates, order confirmations, shipments, hotel reservations and more. Find rental car locations and directions to the hotel, or book dinner reservations and a Lyft ride all without opening a single email!

One Calendar to Rule them All
Say adios to your other Calendar apps! We've expanded Alto's Dashboard to include a Calendar that pulls all your meetings and appointments into one, easy-to-use view. Accept invites from your inbox or Dashboard, create and manage events from your work and personal calendars all from within Alto.

Your Emails, Organized
Alto automatically sorts and categorizes your email into Stacks, giving you one-click access to Unread, Starred or Snoozed messages, as well as Photos, File Attachments, Shopping, Travel, Finance, Social and more. You can even create custom stacks for people like your boss, parent or significant other.

Connect with Alexa and Slack
We love making new friends like Alexa and Slack, two of our tech favorites. We now have seamless integration with both of them. Ask Alexa (the Amazon Echo voice assistant) when your flight departs or your package arrives and Alto finds the answer for you. When you’re on Slack, you can access almost anything attached to your emails -- photos, files, and more -- and add it to your conversation without ever leaving Slack. All without opening a single email!

Make Your Life a Little Easier
By customizing message swipe actions like - archiving, snoozing, deleting, and more - you can get a handle on that backlog of email in no time at all.

Your Security Matters
Alto's IMAP connection uses Secure Sockets Layer encryption (SSL) and performs authentication over a secure channel. Passwords are heavily encrypted. In other words, we help secure all your emails accessed through Alto.
