Email, iPhone, Something New

I find that I am enjoying reading my email on my iPhone more then I enjoy reading it on my laptop.


Interfaces for reading email, for me, are all about getting through lots of messages quickly.

Having only the subjects makes reading email much easier. I am not even tempted to look at the message. I just hit the "Edit" button and tab through the email marking stuff to be deleted.


It remind me of the "good old days" of Elm!

Please take note of the word "read". The interface is horrible for replying to email. It encourages bad grammar/short replies.

Oh well... it just means I reply to less email :)

Me switching to alpine was the biggest timesaver I've done all year.

Mail.app has all my integration needs for when I need to respond to email... that and I got sick of porting elm to new platforms years ago :)

You know that doing a left-to-right swipe across the subject in list view also allows you to delete it without using edit mode? Discovered that accidentally a while back.

I've found the same thing. I'm doing a lot of email management/pruning on the iPhone, and anything that takes more than a quick reply I do at my desk later. At that point it's a nice, short list of things to deal with.
