The unique and interesting email app Confidential CC is getting a big makeover. With an update to version 5.0, it’s now named Email App and also features a revamped interface which should make it easier to use.
This message will self-destruct
And while there are a huge number of different third-party apps that are designed to handle your inbox deluge, Email App focuses on privacy.
As we first told you back in May, the standout feature revolves around ephemeral messages. You can send other email recipients with the app a message that is designed to disappear once read. The information is encrypted and will self-destruct without a trace. The message cannot be forwarded and you can’t print or take a screenshot of the email.
In the end-to-end encryption system, no information is ever stored on the company’s servers. No content is ever saved or cached on your device as well.
To add an extra layer of security, the app integrates with Touch ID and the special message will only appear when your finger is resting on the biometric sensor.
Here’s a video that shows the feature in action. Click here if you can’t see it.
It’s compatible with a number of different email providers and protocols.
The Email App is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
If you’d rather find a different option, another major email management app has recently arrived for iPhone users.
Previously Mac only, Airmail made its way to the App Store earlier this week. The powerful third-party alternative can be downloaded now for $4.99. If you’re interested in learning more about it, take a look at our own Christine Chan’s review.
