App of the Week – CloudMagic Sender Profile
Ever asked yourself; “Who the hell is this emailing me?” That is why CloudMagic is the App of the Week.
Many people have a email inbox that is full of stuff we don’t want and didn’t ask for. And these are often from people we don’t know and really don’t care to know. Spam is the electronic equivalent of junk maul. But you knew that.
CloudMagic is an email application with over 4 million users. It has added a useful feature that lets you know who is sending you what. Sender Profile gives you the ability to quickly view a summary about the person who emailed you. Included in the summary is information like their job title, workplace, location, homepage, and social profiles on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Women will find this feature helpful for ignoring creeps who get their emails address to hit on them. But it also helpful for simply ignoring and quickly deleting spam.
CloudMagic understands that many people check their email on their smartphone and that means limited screen space. So instead of trying to cram all that information on your screen the app will present a “subtle” heads up, the company explains. If you receive email from someone not on your contacts list the app displays a short summary below the email message. Click on the “Know More” link and a pop-up card appears, where you can read more about the person in question.
Once you see the sender’s information on the pop-up card click on a button that flips it over and read about their company, too. That opposite side of the card displays company information, employee headcount, website link, and links to the company on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and AngelList, if applicable. Spam be gone!
CloudMagic is free. But it costs 24.99 annually for the Sender Profile feature as an in app purchase.
