SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Scrolling though redundant information on an email thread can be one of the most infuriating time-sucks for any busy employee. Those days may now be coming to an end, thanks to a San Francisco startup.
MailTime filters out all the redundant text from your emails on your smartphone and re-formats the relevant info into bubbles like you see on a common chat tool. The app, which is currently only available for iPhones also allows you to loop in other people by using the @name feature made popular by Twitter.READ MORE: South Bay Retailer Shutters Store in Response to Smash-and-Grab Crime Wave
Also like Twitter, the service warns you that your email is too long if it goes over 140 characters. Unlike Twitter, MailTime still allows you to send a longer post. Developers say you can also assign and track the progress of tasks directly through the app.READ MORE: Grieving Family Members Call for Justice for Slain Security Guard Kevin Nishita
