Android/iOS/Web: It seems like everyone has some new product that will change email forever, but there are some good ideas in the mix. AOL’s new Alto Dashboard takes a lot of inspiration from apps like Inbox and applies them to all of your email accounts at once.
Alto Dashboard scans your emails to find important information like flight details and order numbers. These are presented as cards with just the important stuff highlighted. It can also easily find emails with attachments like files and photos, and you can even snooze emails for later.
If all of that sounds familiar, it should. Apps like Inbox and Boomerang have used some of these features for a while. Alto’s main advantage is that you can use it with nearly all your accounts. It supports Google, Outlook, Yahoo, iCloud, Exchange and AOL accounts all in one. While Boomerang offers a few of these features for multiple accounts, Inbox only supports Gmail accounts for right now, giving Alto an edge.
