Newton Mail Updates iOS App With ‘Recap’ Feature to Remind You About Missed Messages

by John_A

Newton Mail today announced a new feature for its iOS mail app called “Recap,” aimed at resurfacing conversations that are awaiting your reply or that need to be followed up. Recap covers not only basic text response prompts, but emails that include upcoming due dates, reminders, and more in an effort to ensure you don’t miss any important threads.

The company explains that this works through an early morning notification every day relating to the mail that the app thinks is recap-worthy, marked with a blue dot in the new Recap section. You can swipe to dismiss those you might have already responded to, or don’t need to respond to, or choose for them to resurface later.

Newton promises that Recap only shows “the most relevant conversations that you need to look at,” meaning they go away automatically when they’re dealt with or simply disappear after a few days of non-responsiveness.

Recap doesn’t meddle with your workflow, instead complements it in a subtle yet effective manner. It gives you enough time to take care of the mails yourself and reminds you only if it looks like you have missed them (unless the mail has dates mentioned that you shouldn’t miss).

Recap is only available for English users at the moment, and it won’t be on the Newton Mail app for iPad yet, but the company says to expect that down the line. The update is also bringing Newton out of its introductory price ($4.99 per month or $49.99 per year) and going forward the service will cost $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year (existing subscribers will retain their current price).

Recap follows Newton Mail’s last feature addition in May, called “True Inbox,” which automatically places any sent mail at the top of your Inbox. This happens even if the recipient has yet to respond to your message and in effect treats each email conversation like a threaded messaging app, marking the company’s attempt to make the “Sent” folder obsolete.
