What it is: An app to organize emails
What it does: Alto consolidates emails from various accounts (Google, AOL, Yahoo!, Outlook, iCloud, etc.) into one feed and gives users the opportunity to organize emails into stacks across accounts. Custom message actions makes it user friendly. It also collects photos from emails into a library that is accessible from any app on the device, making it easier to find photos from emails. Drawing from email content, Alto creates cards with the vital details to be seen at a glance, as well as forming a schedule based on email content. Alto can be integrated and used with other apps and technology such as Alexa and Slack.
Who it’s for: Designers, architects and anyone who wants to organize and simplify email access.
Why kitchen and bath designers need it: This app allows users to create custom stacks for various design or architectural projects happening simultaneously. The email photo library, drawn from across various email accounts, creates more readily accessible design photos or layouts for meetings rather than having to dig through emails. Shopping alerts pull content from shipping emails to let users know if a package has been delayed or delivered early, allowing designers know if clients or project sites have received furniture or other shipments without worry of missing the email.
