Update #37

Mail Pilot for Mac Public Preview

1 comment

Good morning, backers!
 Today, we’re ecstatic to share some news with you:

We just launched the Mail Pilot for Mac Public Preview. Many of you have been beta testing the Mac app, and your feedback has been incredibly helpful. Many testers were excited to recommend Mail Pilot for Mac to their friends, so we decided to offer a free Public Preview.

Starting today, anyone can download and use the Public Preview of Mail Pilot for Mac. Your friends and family can now use the newest app from the project you Kickstarted.

Mail Pilot for Mac is by far the best email client we’ve ever shipped – and our beta testers agree. We’ve been blown away by the response to the beta, and we’re incredibly excited to get Mail Pilot for Mac into more people’s hands ahead of our App Store® launch.

We couldn’t have gotten to this point without you. Thank you for Kickstarting us last year. We look forward to the year ahead; we have even more big things planned for 2014.

Happy Holidays!

Unveiling Mail Pilot for Mac

We’d like you to be the first to meet Mail Pilot for Mac.

After months of crafting and development, we’re excited to share what we’ve been up to. We’ve tailored Mail Pilot for Mac to be intuitive yet powerful. Mail Pilot beautifully complements your Mac desktop with its clean design and native functionality.

Introducing Push to Mobile & Push to Desktop

Deal with email when you want to, where you want to. Make sure important messages are where you want them when you need them. Push meeting details to your phone so you can reference them on your way. Push the message requesting a PDF to your desktop, so you will remember to send it along next time you're at work.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts are a first-class feature in Mail Pilot for Mac. We’ve made it incredibly easy to drill through your inbox without touching a mouse. Keeping your inbox clean by completing your messages and setting reminders has never been easier.

Nested Threading

Find clarity in long conversations. Mail Pilot for Mac’s intuitive nested threading provides context within the chaos of a threaded message. Easily browse, filter, and navigate any thread.

Beta Access

All backers that signed up for beta access will be in the first batch of invites, which will roll out over the next week. We look forward to hearing what you think!

For more, see the new Mail Pilot website.

Press, please refer to our new company press page.

As always, feel free to tweet it!
