A long-awaited universal version has just been launched for the highly rated email app Cannonball.
Released for iPad and iPad mini in October last year, Cannonball has indeed just been updated with universal support for iPhone and iPod touch. Check out the promo video for the app's new iPhone edition:If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.
In addition, for both its original iPad and new iPhone editions, the app has been enhanced with several significant new features.
But first, you might be asking what makes Cannonball different from other popular email apps, most notably Mailbox. Well, allow the Cannonball team to explain:
We know that getting to inbox zero is daunting, if not deterring, for many users who use email to collect and organize their lives. So rather than focusing on the intimidating target of inbox zero and thinking of email as a to do list, Cannonball’s sweet spot is helping users who accumulate hundreds of unread emails get to zero unread messages so it’s easier to focus on what’s important and enjoy the rest …
With that in mind, the folks behind Cannonball has improved the app with smart visualization and customization, enabling you to easily change the default separation of important emails from subscriptions, with the app learning from your preferences over time.
Cannonball has also been enhanced with quick search, allowing easy access to your purchases, travel documents, attachments, or unread messages through inbox filtering. It now also features an integrated news reader, providing the latest news and updates right within the app.
Cannonball currently supports Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, Outlook.com and AOL email accounts.
