Inbox Zero is a rigorous approach to email management aimed at keeping the inbox empty.
Unroll.me is an app that brings a Tinder-esque way of cleaning up your inbox by just swiping to unsubscribe and undo years of damage within a few minutes. For example, I somehow have notched up 167 email subscriptions of newsletters, social media alerts and stores that I brought a Christmas gift from in back in 2007 and all have now gone forever after only 5 minutes of swiping.
The app is an incredibly easy way to regain control of your inbox by following the simplistic swiping options and certainly makes you wonder why it has taken this long for something like this to arrive on the scene.
By simply swiping left you can unsubscribe from the email subscriptions you don’t want and no future emails from these senders will land in your inbox ever again.
Waking up in the morning and not having to delete a mountain of emails is certainly a blessing. However, this new super efficient method of decluttering inboxes of newsletters will be seen as a curse to freelancers and entrepreneurs who are desperately trying to build email lists to increase their following or promote a product.
