One of the good features of email services these days is the ability to keep thousands of letters online free. However, this benefit is destroyed by subscription letters, which makes inboxes a mess. There are times when an important email is buried because of subscription emails, and that might be a missed chance for a great opportunity. But these subscription emails sometimes have good deals which are hard to pass. Fortunately, there is an app called Unroll Me which makes organizing emails easier and stress-free.
Unroll Me is a third-party app that works in both Gmail and Yahoo email accounts, with development for AOL development on the way. The app filters all the subscription emails and hides them from your inbox until you decided to view your subscription emails and check the deals. This way, you don’t need to unsubscribe to your newsletters, but you won’t see those emails burying important ones from your inbox.
The first thing to do to use this app is to let it scan your Gmail or Yahoo account. In this step, the app will determine what are the subscription newsletters your account is actively subscribed into. The scan is fast enough and only takes a few minutes for an inbox with more than 10,000 messages. After the scan, Unroll Me will show your Rollup or the collection of your subscription messages in one email. After the Rollup, each of your subscription messages will be filtered to the Rollup and will not appear in your Inbox. You can only view those messages when you view your Rollup. All the messages in the Rollup are in the Unroll Me folder found in your email account.
Unfortunately, you can’t have one Rollup for two email accounts. If you want to check the Rollup in your Gmail and Yahoo accounts, you need to log in separately to the Unroll Me site. Another rough edge for the app is the fact that you would need to find a message manually because the app doesn’t support directly opening messages. Although there a lot of things needed to be improved, it is worthy to note that the app is available for free, which is already a great price for the services that it does.
Jojo Hedaya was recently featured in an article on the WeWork website titled “Meet the 24-year-old Founders Winning the Battle Against Junk Mail.” The article, written by Danielle Renton, reveals how easy it is to become distracted by the constant notifications of emails. This severe problem led Jojo Hedaya and his business partner Josh Rosenwald to create a unique product called Unroll.me. The function of the tool is to organize all the emails, particularly since 80% of the emails are simply updates, subscriptions or newsletters. The personal frustration led them to make a product that will compile all the subscriptions into a single email, allowing you to scroll through the emails without making you sift through every single one. It streamlines the unsubscribing process as well, allowing you to unsubscribe from any newsletters you aren’t interested in anymore with a single click.
Another benefit of the creation by Jojo Hedaya is the ability to choose what time the Rollup is sent to your email. This allows the subscribers to go through their subscriptions during their lunch break or after work without being constantly interrupted. The two met when they traveled to Israel to study while they were both in college. They created the first version of the product within two months. However, the early release did not work very well. They revealed the secret to standing out from their competitors is the simplification. They wanted to help users have a simple experience with a product that was easy to use. With the app, you can see all of the subscriptions and unsubscribe from them with a single click.
The product was also featured in the Tech Crunch article titled “Post Rakuten Acquisition, Slice Buys Unroll.Me to Add Email List Control to its Shopping App.” The article reveals Slice purchased the app to help people unsubscribe from mass-emails and spam. The bootstrap startup began in 2011 and gained 1.3 million different users without any outside investors. The article reveals that companies are gaining an edge when they are able to have a great customer experience. Consumers want apps and technology companies to run smoothly while also getting discounts if they can.
