Shortmail is a new kind of messaging that combines the best parts of email, text messaging, and Twitter.

Like email, Shortmail lets you communicate with anyone who has an email address — one-to-one or as a group.

It integrates seamlessly into iOS 5 and instantly converts your iOS Twitter accounts into Shortmail accounts with no signup, no passwords, and no hassle!

OR you can create a Shortmail account that is not tied to Twitter, selecting a user name that better reflects your personal or business identity. And you can sign in via Facebook or Google.

Messages are limited to 500 characters, which keeps things concise, readable and conversational.

Shortmail also introduces the idea of "Public" (readable by the world) and "Open" (joinable by the world) conversations – so it's social.

And you'll automatically receive notification of new Shortmails using Apple's Push Notification service — a great way to stay on top of important communication.

Shortmail for iOS follows the debut of which received international attention for its bold moves to reinvent email. Following many suggestions from the Email Charter (, Shortmail attempts to solve the problem of information overload by placing a small cost – that of conciseness and clarity – onto the sender.

Shortmail for iOS is a great companion to, but can also be used alone.

So join the Shortmail revolution – give it a try for 30 days and see how much better your email life becomes!

Customer Reviews

Good App

A low ceremony alternative to email. Very useful for short conversations.

Would like to see some of the features on the web app make it to the mobile app. Like the ability to see quarantine messages.

Great concept, good app

This canned rating is accurate to my sentiment: Shortmail's concept is a winner and worth embracing. The app is reliable and a good compliment to the service.
