With close to half a million downloads and counting, we have been enjoying the widespread success that our Zoho Mail mobile app has found. In wanting to extend this success as well as keep pace with rapid tech advancements, we are excited to unveil our new and updated Zoho Mail mobile app for iOS and Android. From a complete Material Design UI makeover for Android, to support for 3D touch, Apple Pencil, and dedicated Apple Watch App for iOS, we have striven to cover all bases.
When we released the first version of the Zoho Mail app, we were inspired by the high influx of feedback we received. Let’s take a look at what exciting new features we have in store for you.
Multiple account support – These days many of us have multiple email accounts. One for work, and one for your blog. With this update, managing all your mail for all your Zoho accounts becomes easier, thanks to one unified inbox.
Conversation view – One of the favourite features of our customers about Zoho Mail on the web is conversation view. Conversation view keeps your inbox tidy by bunching together emails of the same thread. This way your emails are organized and give you all the context you need to reply to those long email threads.
Improved Contacts view – The contacts view now displays all the detailed information you have about a contact. Their IM information, home and office addresses, and URL’s are all displayed.
Offline support – In today’s world, it’s difficult to imagine being “off-the-grid”. But if you find yourself in such a situation, Zoho Mail lets you draft an email and save it. Hit send when you’re done. The mail will automatically be sent as soon as you are connected again.
Apple users have further reason to celebrate as we unveil some new iOS-specific updates:
3D touch – Glance at an email without actually opening it by pressing down on it to preview it. You can also use 3D touch from the app icon on the home screen to pop up some Quick Actions–compose an email, add an event or contact, and run a quick search through your messages.
Watch – With Apple Watch support, Zoho Mail notifications come right to your wrist, so you never miss any important updates. When a new email arrives, you can quickly see the sender and the subject, and then click to read a snippet of the message. You can also view your Calendar to see upcoming events.
Pencil – With the Apple Pencil, Zoho Mail gets more creative. Using the Scribble feature, send a personal hand-written message in your next email. Mark up image files to add more dimension and information to your work.
We’ve also made these changes:
Split view – Multitasking just got a boost with Split View on iPad & Landscape support for iPhone.
Configurable swipe actions – Swipe left to Move, Delete or Archive? It’s your choice!
P.S: Windows phone users, don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about you. We are working on an app. Stay tuned.
