Now email has pretty much fully evolved into the mobile era, we thought it would be interesting to take a look back at some nice familiar brands and see how they made the leap into mobile – and also if we can spot any trends along the way.
I’m two months deep into living with an Apple Watch, and while it’s not quite ready for the mainstream, I’d say that wearables will be the future for a lot of us. Sure, it’s a slightly clunky first-gen product, but it definitely has its exciting little moments that feel like the future.
Obviously the thing we’re most interested in is the Apple Watch’s email abilities. These may at first appear limited in their current state but, again, offer up an interesting glimpse of things to come.
For some time now Google have been doing their best to shake up the email experience. They’ve introduced tabs, schema, priority inbox, promotions view and most recently Inbox to name but a few features. In fact over the last couple of years it feels like Google have been doing more than anyone else to progress email.
