Recently AOL announced that Alto now offers advanced mobile email apps for iOS and Android.
“A game changer for users who live on their smartphones and don’t want to use multiple apps to stay organized, Alto simplifies how users manage email,” the announcement from AOL explained.
The most welcome feature may be access to multiple email accounts in a single mailbox — and the ability to quickly switch accounts. That’s because Alto supports any IMAP account including AOL, Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook.com, and iCloud.
“The average email user has at least three email accounts, so the last thing they need is another email account,” said Dave McDowell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Communication Products at AOL. “Alto makes it simple to manage multiple email accounts so users don’t have to switch between apps, it makes the message list smart so users don’t have to read every message to get the most important information, and it provides a dashboard to highlight relevant information when and where users need it most.”
Alto also has “Cards,” which surfaces flights, hotels, restaurant reservations, shipping details, and receipts right in the message list to allow users to get information without ever opening an email.
“Dashboard” bundles cards together for a quick snapshot of the most important and relevant information in a user’s inbox — and something called “Stacks” organizes photos, files, personal conversations, and more for quick access.
Alto runs on mobile devices with Android 4.0+ and iOS 9.0+.
