    Default Upcoming E-mail App 'Ping' Will Re-think the Way We Use E-mail


    A new e-mail client dubbed Ping is set to hit the App Store later this month that will include both e-mail and messenger-like functionality.

    The feature set will include letting the user switch between message view and thread view on demand, seeing when the other person is typing a message, and even supporting media sharing. In addition, Ping will support the popular iCloud, Yahoo!, Gmail, and AOL e-mail clients right out of the box, as well as push notifications, and gestures; all packed into a beautiful interface.

    Media can be imported into a conversation from the Camera Roll, taken fresh from the lens, imported from the Internet, doodled by the user, or even spoken by the user before being sent to the recipient. All of these options offer tons of unique flexibility that isn't available in too many iOS e-mail clients.

    You can watch the teaser video for Ping below:



    For a mobile-friendly video link that works with our app, tap on the link to Ping's Web page below:

    Ping

    To reserve your spot for Ping when it comes out, similarly to the Mailbox e-mail application by Orchestra, you will need to head over to Ping’s Web page, where you will enter your mobile phone number. You will receive a notification after the application is released with instructions for signing up.

    Ya hopefully this is easier than Mailbox. Tried Mailbox and just couldn't remember about what swiping to right did and swiping to left did and this and that. And some of the features to me were useless. Just easier for me to use the native mail iOS app. But that just me LOL

    They've been promising more e-mail client support FOREVER and constantly fail to deliver the goods .

    Nothing wrong with trying something.

    Tried mailbox and didn't really like it's feature set. Maybe it's more for power (gmail) users. Ping looks like it's perfect for me. I constantly jump into safari to find pictures to send in sms messages. Can't wait to try it.

    Obviously the girl in the video is an idiot. I trust my friends to send me more interesting content than videos of dogs and bad grammar emails..😉

    Create new email client, add queues to hype up product. Wait for a company to buy it out. Sounds like another Mailbox.
