Triage: Email First Aid
By Southgate Labs
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Triage is for people who like to stay on top of their inbox. It doesn't try to replace your desktop mail client, but lets you use your downtime to quickly remove the noise and stress.
"Since I’ve been using Triage, I’m more caught up on my email than I have been in years." — Daring Fireball
"Triage makes it feel seamless, and even fun, to achieve—if not Inbox Zero—at least Inbox Zen." — Macworld
"Triage is my new favorite email app for iPhone." — MacStories
"Triage is simple, clean, fast, and one of my new favorite apps." — iMore
When you sign in to your mail account, your new messages will appear as a stack of cards. Simply flick messages up to archive, or flick them down to keep in your inbox for later. You can also tap a message to view its full contents, and compose a short reply.
Triage supports Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and iCloud Mail accounts, and most email services that support IMAP.
What's New in Version 1.2.2
• Display account name when loading new messages
• Reverted swipe down to leave messages as unread

• Various performance improvements
I love this app. I depend on this app.
Triage is a great idea. I spend more time in Triage than in any other email client. I use Triage to quickly get rid of useless email.
2 years ago l, circa 2015, I gave it only 4 stars because of some problems, but I have not encountered those bugs recently. I therefore now give it 5 stars.
I love this app. I depend on this app. I am quite worried that this is a 32 bit app that will stop working in a near future version of iOS.
I would pay 50$ to have this app ported to the new iOS. I would pay 100$ to have it ported and improved in minor ways.
The key to this app IMHO is that it uses vertical swipes, up to archive, down to keep. It's a small thing, but such vertical swipes are far less stress in my thumbs than horizontal swipes. The vertical swipes are symmetric, allowing me to alternate thumbs. Also, by presenting a screenful of info I need to click through to read the rest of the email far less often. Basically, in Triage something like 8% of all emails can be handled in one swipe, compared to 20% in other apps.
I would pay 100$ for a minor enhancement: currently Triage has only two options: swipe up to delete or archive, down to keep (plus click through to read more).
I wish that I could have two buttons at top and two at bottom: swipe to UL to archive, UR to defer, etc. More options. But still be fundamentally vertical swipes.
The only email app I use on my phone
I honestly don't understand how anyone gets by without this.
