As a blogger, you would think that I would know a lot about tech products. I probably do, atleast more than the average person. I am constantly upgrading my ipads, iphones, DSLRs and household products like our TVs. I am also looking at a new car and looking at the fancy upgrades that include the extras like navigation, bluetooth, and USB ports. Lets face it, all that has become very important!
But when it comes to running all those fancy tech products, everything is changing on a continuous basis and that can be where I fail a bit. I am always looking for new apps, family websites, programs to make my computer safer, faster and more fun.
Or even able to help me keep control of my kids some days:
But above all, I need technology to give me ways to make my life just a tad more efficient.
Now my ipad is full of great apps and here are just a few of those that I use every day:
- Tower Defense (a PR rep told me about this one on an event, ha!)
- StumbleUpon (could I really live without this? no)
- Ruzzle (my husband and I are in a constant game war on this)
- Plants Vs Zombies (How did it take me so long to find this game? ADDICTING)
- Netflix (Perfect for Charlotte)
- Candy Crush ( I am newer to this but as far as I can tell its addicting)
- Fisher Price Baby Animals
- Toca Monsters
- Tap A Tune
- Animal Pino
- Where’s my Perry
As you can see we really love our online programs and apps and recently a new one was introduced to me called Incredimail.
Incredimail is a game changing mail client built for a touch experience. It allows you as the user to flip, peak, and scan at your mail and your facebook pictures all in one easy to find app that connects to your email. Incredimail for iPad attempts to give a new experience and outlook to email for touch devices while enhancing its user friendly GUI. The most striking feature is the reimagined inbox which displays emails in a visually organized, easy-to-navigate interface with a beautiful magazine layout, specially designed for a touch interface.
Features of Incredimail
- Unified Inbox: Add as many email accounts as you want and view them in a unified inbox, or view each account separately. Incredimail currently supports Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, and any other IMAP account.
- Quick Peeks: See a quick preview of emails directly from the inbox, without having to open them.
- Photo Inbox: In addition to the regular email inbox, enjoy a photo inbox that features photos from friends and family, keeping you fully up to date with the people that matter most (starting with Facebook photos, others will be added soon).
- Link Previews (a.k.a. Snippets): All links sent to you including photos, videos and articles, are presented as a preview within the email for a pleasant and uninterrupted email experience. Links you send are also viewed as previews by the email recipient.
- Email Stationery: Enjoy a specially designed email stationery collection to add a personal style to emails you send. Additional stationery and rich content coming soon.
- Built-In Web Browser: Search and browse the web right inside your inbox, ensuring an uninterrupted experience.
- Future features to include: POP3 email support, other social platforms like Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn, and more photo integration with Picasa Web, Flickr and Instagram.
Things I loved:
- Set up with Incredimail was super easy!
- This is sorta an odd thing to comment on, but I really love how its so easy to scroll through and it makes looking at the visual part of Facebook really fun. Its a lot better than what you have to do now to be on Facebook.
- The templates in sending emails are very pretty and personal. Easy to use. I sent one to myself and it looked very cute in box.
- There is also a web version.
- FREE app download
Things I didn’t love
- I couldn’t get it to work with hotmail, which while it is in the dark ages, I do use.
- Originally the app had a server error but when I deleted it and reinstalled, it’s been perfect. Just worth noting.
Things I would add
- Since its an all in one type client, I would love to see ability to add more social accounts to it. If there truly was an all in one place where I could select on the left side and all the content would appear as If i was signed it, it would be invaluable. I would easily pay $4.99 for that.
If you want to test out this free app, head over here! (web version links too)
Now in your house, what apps make your online tech life easier? Care to suggest some I should be checking out?
Anyone have one that folds the laundry?
