OVERVIEW

Customise your email alerts to only get notifications of the messages that matter - MailTones can show you a pop-up "push alert" on your iPhone or iPad, showing the sender and subject of your new email message. You'll know instantly whether you need to launch Mail and read the message, or if it can wait.

One practical way to use MailTones is to set your default email tone to silent, or ignore, and just set audible alerts for people and message subjects you need to know about - then when your iPhone beeps or buzzes, you'll know its an email message that matters.

Pick your phone out in the crowd with a new email tone. We bundle over 60 alert tones with MailTones, from subtle professional tones to pager alerts, load horns and whistles - perfect for hearing email in a noisy environment, or alerting you to very important messages.

BENEFITS
• Pick a new email tone from over 60 we supply
• Set custom alerts for contacts, subjects, recipient addresses and domains
• Get quick alerts of incoming messages
• Cut distractions by setting unimportant email to silent or ignore
• "Do Not Disturb" automatically stops alerts at night
• Link your devices to receive email alerts on iPhone and iPad
• Simple set-up from Gmail or any server which supports "forward a copy" forwarding of email
• Developed and passionately supported by a UK company with over 14 years experience in the mobile industry

HOW IT WORKS
MailTones works by using a copy of your email messages to send a Push Message to your iPhone or iPad. To generate this push message, we scan a copy of your email messages on our server. We realise this approach will not be suitable for everyone.

When you run MailTones, we'll give you a special email address @mailtones.net - forward A COPY of your email to that address and any mail you receive will make your iPhone beep with your chosen tone. You can choose to copy all your email to mailtones.net, or use filters to just forward some messages.

When email arrives at our server, we send a Push message to your iPhone or iPad - causing it to beep, whistle, ring or buzz! Please make sure you can forward a copy of your email to a second address - Gmail users can do this, but we understand Yahoo Mail does not provide this facility.

MailTones uses the Amazon EC2 platform, to allow for extreme reliability and stability, however we cannot guarantee delivery of message notifications.

GMail forwarding now requires a code - but we detect and show this in MailTones automatically, so you can enter it in Gmail settings.

"MailTones is an idea whose time has come. If you're tired of pulling out your iPhone every five minutes to see if that new message is something important, now you've got an audio-cue alternative. Indeed, for anyone inundated by e-mail, MailTones is money well spent." Major Website Review

"MailTones works well, takes the push notification system to the next level and is worth the price tag."

Not Reliable for Business & Developer Not Paying Attention

The only reason I got this was it is one of the few cusomizable tone apps out. But the system is constantly stopping working, and support only has advice for you when it is your fault - that is the only condition they recognize. Not reliable enough to notify you when your boss or client has sent you an important email - and the tones and support have not had any effort put into them for years. Can't record your own and sometimes the app mixes up the tones between ID's. Then the system will just quit working for weeks at a time.

My advice is just PayPal the Developer $10 and don't even bother trying to use the package. He just wants the money.

Just works.

Yes you have to forward your email however, if you are nervous about sensitive emails getting sent to a different server, create a filter that keeps them from getting forwarded (for example, any email I receive that includes the words "password reset" does not get forwarded). I've tried other apps that only do notifications from polling your inbox but they aren't as reliable. With boxcar 1 getting shut down, I needed something that would let me distinguish between email accounts and this app does it. It's a little spendy, but it works.

Unreliable

With the death of PushMail, I needed a replacement that worked the same. I forward just the emails I want notifications for.
Problem is like others say, the service is horribly unreliable. I read somewhere they blamed Apple for slowness. It's not Apple. If it was, people would dump them. No, it's the servers we are sending email too.
And, the repeat notification feature does not work, as you'd expect after reading the above. Last issue, if you do tap a notification, it tries to open the app then just gives you a black screen for an eternity before you finally see the app then it jumps you to Mail
So if you don't care about reliability, go for it
