TOKYO (MacHouse) – We hate winters. Hopefully, this harsh winter won’t last till the end of the month. Anyway, today, we have released two iPad applications. One is a freeware version of the other. These new software releases are MailYou and MailYou Lite.
We all know that tablet devices are very useful. When it comes to composing a mail message, though, you don’t really want to use an iPad to send a long message. But if you have to… And especially if you have to write the same, long message over and over… MailYou can be your friend.
MailYou is a mail application that lets you create mail component templates and then compose messages. Let the application extract e-mail address records from Contacts. Create e-mail address groups so that you can send the same message to multiple recipients at a time. Create message templates so that you can just select one from a list instead of writing a long message that you might have to later repeat. Insert tags to a message template so that MailYou can replace them with real values (first name, last name, full name, recipient’s address) for the selected individual e-mail recipient address. Let MailYou access the Photos shared library so that you can pick a picture as an attachment. Set a scale rate so that the selected photo will fit the mail window.
- Use Contacts data to create address records with a tap on a button or create individual address records manually.
- Create message templates. Insert tags to the message so that MailYou can automatically replace them with real values including recipient’s first name, last name, full name, e-mail address and ‘My e-mail address’ (user’s e-mail address).
- Access the Photos library to use a picture as a mail attachment. Let the application JPEG-compress an attachment picture.
- Set a scale rate so that the selected picture will fit the message window.
- Create your default mail signature to append to the message.
- Create an e-mail address group out of selected individual address records so that you can send the same message to multiple recipients.
- Create message subject templates. Then choose one by tapping the Select button.
- The application comes with a built-in user’s guide (in English only). (Tap the Help button at the top of the main screen.)
- Language: English only
- File size: 4.8 MB
- iOS 6.0 or higher
- E-mail account with an SMTP mail server or equivalent
- The user can use pictures only from the Photos library as attachments. The user can only attach one picture to each message.
- In order to actually send out messages, the user must have and use their own e-mail account.
- MailYou only supports JPEG as a graphic format to compress the selected attachment picture.
- MailYou cannot access the Photos library to get the true name of the selected attachment picture. (The user can set their default common attachment name in the Settings screen.)
- If the selected address record from Contacts is an array (a list of multiple values), MailYou will pick either a home address or a work address. The choice is yours.
- The application supports only the portrait (vertical) orientation.
Note: Release dates are ones when updates are announced here, not when updates are actually released at App Store. We make no promise that they will be accepted by iTunes Connect and then released at App Store.
1.1.0 (Released on March 11, 2013)
- Fix: If the message template selected by the user was too large, the application could crash.
- The user can now duplicate the selected message template.
- The user can now edit a address group name (title).
- The user can set the syntax highlighting color of the message tags in the Settings screen.
- Several minor changes are made in relation to the Lite version.
- The user can now use step buttons for minute changes when adjusting the attachment picture scale.
- The user can now import text files (.txt) to application’s sandbox-protected folder. They can use these text files as message templates. See Help > 9. Version 1.1 for more information.
MailYou is a product of MacHouse.
