Unroll Me is an email service that manages and organizes your junk mail. This service will clear out useless subscriptions from your inbox and organize the emails that are important to you. The Unroll Me app is available for iPhone and is now going to be available for Android. Just connect your email and choose the emails you don’t want to receive. According to the CEO Jojo Hedaya, the app’s interface is similar to Tinder. You swipe left on any emails you want out of your inbox and swipe right on emails you want to stay.
Hedaya sees Unroll Me as a great way to keep your inbox free of clutter. According to the app, the average person has enough subscriptions in their inbox for the swiping feature. Hedaya says that this app will not replace an email client. They’ve tried that in the past and were not completely successful with it. This app is just meant as an easy way to keep your inbox organized.
Unroll Me says they have over a hundred thousand subscribers. And they say that their unsubscribe feature has gotten rid of over a hundred million unwanted emails. Until now, the people at Unroll Me haven’t been paying much attention to how much the app has been growing. There are other email services that are suppose to work the way Unroll Me does, but Hedaya claims they’re really trying to change the email client.
Unroll Me was recently acquired by Slice, a shopping data app. Slice, like Unroll Me, also organizes emails. But those emails are related to shopping. CEO Josh Rosenwald says with the way Unroll Me is growing, it won’t be able to continue on by itself. This is what lead to them partnering up with Slice. Along with Slice, they want to try to double the number of staff members.
