The new Boxer email app by Taskbox will remind you a little bit of Facebook—the app features a ‘Like’ button for your emails, so that you can quickly acknowledge a friend’s message. The sender will receive a notification that you’ve seen and liked the email. The app aims for a social media-type interactive platform for the snail mail of the digital world. The app also displays profile images and contact cards in attempt to make emailing more lively and likable.
Another creative component of the Boxer app is its To-do list feature; users are able to transfer an important message from the inbox into a separate folder of tasks to be done. This is brilliant, because most communication in work offices happens via email.
The app is compatible with all major email services like Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook and AOL. It’s available in the app store—free for the first 100,000 downloads.
