Unsubscriber for Gmail Puts You in Control of Email Again
How many emails do you get on a daily basis? If you’re anything like me, you don’t even want to look at that number. Now think about how many of those are newsletters you forgot you signed up for? Unless you manually unsubscribe from each list in Gmail, you may feel a little helpless. Well, feel helpless no more: Welcome Unsubscriber for Gmail.
Upon opening Unsubscriber, you will first need to connect your Gmail account(s). Then the app will scan for any mailing lists you are subscribe to. Next, you can browse through the list, which is sorted by email frequency. I loved this sorting method, because it really puts into perspective where most of your emails are coming from. However, it would be nice to have a search method or at least an alphabetical sort in addition to it.
When you click on an item, you’ll see how many messages you currently have from that sender. You can choose to keep receiving messages from them or unsubscribe with one click. If you’d rather not click each one, you can swipe on each sender to quickly choose to keep it or unsubscribe. After unsubscribing from an email list, you can also choose to delete associated emails that you already have by clicking on settings.
While Unsubscriber is certainly useful, it is just getting started, so the features feel quite limited. I’d like to see additional options and optimization for the iPhone 6/6 Plus. That said, it’s still worth a look.
