Unroll.me – Turn Subscription Emails Into a Daily Digest

ss-unroll.me

It seems like everyone’s got a solution for uncluttering inboxes these days. Some web-applications utilize priority levels, some divert emails to secondary accounts, and some offering swipe-and-go technology to help users trash emails in seconds. Unroll.me is a web-app that takes a different approach, automatically rolling all of a user’s subscription emails (like newsletters and social networking updates) into a single, daily digest.

Unroll.me is the perfect solution for people who can’t stop signing up for email newsletters and subscription lists. Login with your Gmail or Yahoo Mail account. After granting Unroll.me limited access, the application scans your inbox and creates a list of all your email subscriptions (like Groupon deals, Amazon recommendations, and Twitter updates). This list will then be presented to you, and you have the option to unsubscribe from any email on that list with just one click. The messages that are left are added to your “Rollup,” which is what Unroll.me calls its daily email digest.

Unroll.me’s Rollup will show up in your email inbox each day, providing you with an overview of all your daily subscription emails. View your Rollup as a list or a grid, or view the emails in your Rollup by category. You can click on any email brief to see the complete message, or click “Tomorrow’s Rollup” to find out what’s coming up in the next day’s digest.

Practical Uses:

  • Consolidate all of your emails from daily deal companies
  • Save time going through email each morning
  • Skim through updates from your Facebook and Twitter accounts
  • Quickly unsubscribe to newsletters you no longer wish to receive

Insider Tips:

  • Rollups are only sent on days when you’ve received subscription emails
  • Emails included in a Rollup are saved in the user’s email account
  • Users can see what’s coming up in the next day’s Rollup
  • Use the auto-add feature to automatically include new subscriptions in your Rollup

What we liked:

  • Unroll.me can actually help people save time
  • Users can choose what time of day to receive their Rollups
  • Daily digests can be filtered and organized based on a user’s preferences
  • People can unsubscribe from emails from within their inboxes

What we didn’t like:

  • Unroll.me currently only supports users with Gmail and Yahoo Mail
