Nearly every website you go to these days requires you to register for an account and then they spam your e-mail address with a million e-mails a day. Have you ever tried to unsubscribe from one of these accounts? Every now and then you'll find a nice easy one, but usually it's easier to change your last name on your social security card than to unsubscribe from a list.
Solution? Unroll.me, a service that simplifies your inbox and gets rid of unwanted e-mails. This short video produced by Unroll.me explains more.
To get started, Unroll.me scans your e-mail account for any subscriptions and generates a list of all subscriptions for you. To be honest, I have an e-mail address specifically dedicated to junk mail and I almost never check it. However, every now and then I'll have a service send e-mail to my primary e-mail address. When Unroll.me scanned my account, I was surprised to find I had 22 subscriptions.
Next, you have the option to unsubscribe from any e-mail subscription and it's as easy as clicking the minus sign next to the account. Seriously, could they make it any easier?
|No offense, Texas Roadhouse, but you're clogging up my e-mail. Time to go.|
On top of this, they will compile this information into a daily digest for you. So, imagine you had four subscriptions in lifestyle, three in news and five in shopping. Typically, your inbox would have a total of 12 separate e-mails. After getting setup with Unroll.me, you will only receive 1 e-mail from Unroll.me (your Rollup) and inside that e-mail you will receive a report of each of those e-mails. You can click on any of the accounts to expand it and see what it contained. Unroll.me does not delete those e-mails from your account, it simply hides them from your view, keeping your inbox nice and clean and really making all those e-mails more manageable.
Oh, and did I mention this was all free? Pretty cool, right?
Currently, Unroll.me only works with Gmail, Google Apps and Yahoo e-mail addresses, though they are always trying to add more. But, honestly, if you're not using Gmail or Yahoo for your e-mail, well, why not?
Go ahead, get started by clicking here. It only takes a few minutes and will simplify your inbox.
