Finally an app has come whose main sole purpose is to maximize efficiency when communicating via emails.
As iPhone users are well aware of, scrolling through your email in your Smartphone can be a bit of a complicated task, with long messages being left unread many times. MailTime are well aware of this and with their app, once you have written over 5 sentences, it will send you a warning message reading “Too Long; Didn’t Read”. This encourages concise and to the point writing, making communication much more effective and responsive.

These include USD 250,000 from the Zhen Fund; USD 100,000 from Crystal Stream ; USD 100,000 from Gary Rieschel, Qiming Venture Partners; USD 50,000 from Huang Mingming, Angel Investor; USD 50,000 from China Rock Capital; HKD 100,000 from the Cyberport Creative Micro Fund and RMB 200,000 from the PolyU China Entrepreneurship Fund.
