    Default Color Code Unified Inbox Messages With 'Organizr'


    From Apple’s Mail application in iOS, you can either view all of your E-mail in one unified inbox that contains messages from every single mailbox, or you can view your E-mail messages in their own e-mail mailbox folders such as Hotmail, Yahoo, and Gmail. It’s easy to tell messages apart when you’re in the mailbox folder dedicated to one E-mail account, but when you’re in the unified e-mail inbox, it’s difficult to tell which E-mail account each of the messages are coming from. A new tweak called Organizr by iOS developers Austen Frazier and winocm aims to fix this.

    Organizr will color code each E-mail message to tell you which E-mail account each message is from. The color is shown on the top left-hand side of the message cell (out of the way) and each E-mail account gets a different color.

    Color coding isn’t new, as Stefan Möllenkamp’s Mail Enhancer Pro can also color code e-mail messages in the unified e-mail inbox. Albeit the concept isn’t new, the price is. Organizr only costs 99¢, while Mail Enhancer Pro is a whopping $4.99. The price is of course justified by the myriad of features that Mail Enhancer Pro comes with, while Organizr is simply a bare bones color-coating tweak.

    Currently, Organizr only supports iOS 5; however, the developers are working on iOS 6 compatibility (for those of you with the tethered limera1n jailbreak). The developers are also working on bringing a preferences pane to the tweak to set a specific color for each E-mail account, which is currently automatically assigned since there are no options to configure for Organizr at this point in time.

    To tell what color each E-mail account is assigned, you can visit the individual mailboxes to see what color is displayed. Many people have around two or three E-mail accounts on their iOS device, so it’s not going to be difficult to memorize. Hopefully the upcoming update that includes a preferences pane will reduce memorization on the user’s part by allowing users to pick their own colors.

    As the tweak sits right now, is it useful? – Absolutely. Anyone that has a cluttered inbox and would like some kind of order should give this tweak a try. It works well and without fail in distinguishing your messages from all of your E-mail accounts in the unified mailbox.

    i loved this feature about Mail Enhancer Pro (and the previous version), alone it was worth the price, the extra features were a bonus. if you have several mailboxes it's amazing to quickly see where your important messages are without having to go into each specific mailbox.

    I'm pretty sure you mean "color-coding".

    In the description:

    "The ability to change how your e-mail senders' names appear."

    I've been looking for something that will help cross reference the contact list and show the sender's name in the list of messages. Currently, if the sender hasn't set their name correctly in their own client, only the e-mail address shows. Once the message is opened the proper name shows however.

    Does this feature address this? I don't want to pay $5 to find out, but if it did, I'd be willing and able.

    I don't think you're talking about the same jailbreak tweak that we are here.

    Organizr is 99¢ and it doesn't change the name of senders.

    I was referring to the linked Mail Enhancer Pro, which I misunderstood to be a more advanced version of this. It's a different app. My bad. Thanks.

    I am still looking for this capability, though.

    A quick skim through Mail Enhancer Pro's Cydia description and I did not see the feature you were looking for.
