Lately, we’ve been thinking a lot about the infamous quote “wonderful things happen when your brain is empty.” It’s been proven that ideas tend to arise when you are less scattered, not only in your mind, but within your physical and digital spaces as well. That’s why it’s so good to keep your desktop (both real and virtual) as clean and organized as possible. Not an easy task if you’re one of millions who is bombarded with email every day.
Lucky you, a new service has arrived to help clean things up. It’s called Azigo, and it serves as a new way to turn all of your email subscriptions into one beautiful and visual feed of images. It’s exceptionally useful for all of the emails you probably receive from retailers, blogs, and news sites. Here’s an example of how it looks:
Best of all, it’s super easy to create an account. Once you get to the website, you’ll need to create a new email address so that all of your subscriptions can be forwarded. After you create an account, Azigo will ask for permission to scan your email. They’ll pull out relevant subscriptions and confirm whether or not you want to add them to your feed.
After that, you’re all set! You can continue to add subscriptions to your feed by forwarding them to your Azigo email address. You can also explore brands that Azigo recommends for you. Azigo also gives you an option to highlight your favorites, so they sit on the top of your stream. You can also choose to “ignore” any subscriptions, making the whole “unsubscribe” process way easier.
There are many other players in the “let’s make email suck less” space. For instance, companies like Unroll.me and Swizzle will create daily email digests for you. They simply compile all your subscriptions into one email for you to read daily — 20 emails can now turn into 1. Other similar mail de-cluttering services include Boomerang and PowerInbox. If real world mail is more of a problem for you, we highly recommend PaperKarma. It’s hands down the best way to get rid of all the spammy junk mail that comes to your house.
