I don’t know if the same happens to you as is always happening to me. Although I’m constantly trying to empty my email inbox it is always full of hundreds unopened messages. All sorts of unopened rubbish from promotions and order confirmations to other messages that are much more important. The big problem is that the urgent messages are all mixed up with the background noise that I usually try and ignore. For this problem there is a cool new app that is about to come out.
The app I’m talking about is called Astro and it comes equipped with Artificial Intelligence. Astro is a particular type of virtual assistant specifically designed to help you regain control of your email inbox.
Without having to tell it anything Astro reminds you about emails from friends, suggests mailing lists you might want to delete and prioritizes emails that might be more important. As well as a range of other options it can also invite you to archive those senders to whom you never pay attention.
Astro is easy to use and it looks like any other email app (Gmail, Inbox etc.) with the only difference being the better filters it has for separating your messages. Other interesting options include tracking certain emails, email reminders and even a “snooze” setting, which allows you to respond to emails later on.
Astro is also integrated with Slack meaning your email and work based messaging service can now work seamlessly together.
