Send yourself a quick note with just one tap. It's simple, reliable and really fast.
“If you're looking for something to capture everything you need to remember (and capture it quickly), I highly recommend picking up Captio” - The Unofficial Apple Weblog
“If you need to send photos or screenshots to yourself on a regular basis then Captio will save you quite a bit of time” - Lifehacker.com
Notes are delivered to your email inbox instantly or stored temporarily on your device while you're offline.
Captio is made specifically for capturing an idea or task as fast as possible, with minimum distractions.
Use the share extension to email yourself text, links to web pages and photos from within other apps.
If you configure Captio to use an IMAP account, it puts notes directly into your inbox for the best security and privacy. Without any configuration, Captio sends notes using Amazon's SES mail servers.
The share extension now includes more information and works with even more apps.
The ‘reply-to’ address has been changed back to a no-reply address. Unfortunately the ‘reply to self’ setup triggers many spam filters, including those of Evernote.
Ratings and Reviews
Wouldn't Want an iPhone Without It!
There is absolutely no faster way for me to capture notes to OmniFocus. Captio launches quickly, the keyboard is ready for typing, and a single tap quickly sends the email. It's faster to use this and OF's Mail Drop feature than to open OmniFocus itself. Faster by far.
The formatting options are minimal, but enough to customize for any particular use.
Like others have said, this is an extremely simple app, but it can easily be the one you use most. It has a permanent home in the bottom left corner of my iPhone.
Perfect for what it is
I keep my phone on the nightstand. Often I wake up in the night thinking of something I need to remember to do at work. Captio is perfect for this. Tap the app, type a few words and hit send, fall back to sleep.
The "To" field has been prefilled by me so the cursor is already blinking and ready for me to type the instant I open the app. When I get to work the email is waiting there to remind me. You either need this app or will probably find it pointless, but if you are like me you'll know exactly how this app makes your life better!
Well Designed + Very Useful
Captio is the best of the four email to yourself apps that I have tried.
If you email ideas or thoughts to yourself a lot as I do, this is the perfect app. Simple and well designed. One of my most used apps on a daily basis.
One suggestion for the developer would be to add a toggle for two email addresses for those of us who would like to use the app for both our personal and work emails.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
