MailTones-Email Sounds and Alerts

COST: $2.99
DESCRIPTION: Communications, E-Mail, Lifestyle, Native, Productivity
..UPDATED: 1/14/10, VERSION: 1.3 -- RATING: 2-1/2 Stars.. 

I had just been talking to a buddy the other day about wishing there was some way in which we could differentiate the sound of e-mail from various senders, sort of like different ring tones on your phone. MailTones does exactly this! It helps you sort through your e-mail clutter so that you are alerted by specifically chosen tones to check your e-mail from those whom you want. Save the junk and bulk mail till later when you have more time. The beauty of this is that not only do you get a sound alert (chosen from 1 of 25 sounds), but you receive a pop-up alert too through push notification, if you choose. Just today alone, MailTones has allowed me to cut through the e-mail clutter by giving my attention to the correspondence that is most important. A summary of some of the great features of this notification app are:

• Pick a new email tone from over 25 we supply
• Set custom tones for friends, subjects and domains
• Get quick alerts of incoming messages
• Cut distractions by setting unimportant email to silent or ignore
• "Do Not Disturb" automatically stops alerts at night
• Simple set-up from GMail, MobileMe and any server which supports "forward a copy" forwarding of email-excluding Yahoo! Mail
• No need to share your email account details!

This app is very easy to set up, and has a clean sleek interface. What I love about it is that I can set my default mail tone to silent or ignore, and use tones for people with whom I really want to correspond. I also use the 'Do Not Disturb' feature to set my tones off after 11 pm. Truthfully, MailTones is much like having your own assistant sort your mail by giving you the truly important stuff that matters while relegating other bulk mail to the back burner. Let MailTones provide you with mail from those who count, instantly and with a sound you recognize.

"MailTones gives you e-mail alerts and e-mail custom sounds for different contacts, subjects and senders. Pick your phone out in a crowd with its own distinctive e-mail alert sound."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip/Tutorial: You must forward your e-mail to a specified @mailtones.net address which is on a safe server, in order to get your chosen e-mail tones recognized.
