uncomplex gmbh releases Mailplane 2.0 Beta for Mac OS X
May 9, 2008 in Networks and FTP
[prMac.com] Sursee, Switzerland - uncomplex gmbh has released Mailplane 2.0 Beta for worldwide testing. Acting as a site specific web browser for Google's Gmail, Mailplane is a full fledged Mail client for the Desktop. Beta 2.0 sports many new features, including full Gmail 2 support, new Gmail add-ons and keyboard shortcuts, better account notifications, more ways to create email attachments, plus a new OmniFocus clipping plugin.
Mailplane fully integrates the Gmail web interface into the Mac experience, offering users the best of both worlds. And since Mailplane doesn't change the way Gmail works, its unique features can still be enjoyed, including conversations, labels, global access, endless storage, spam protection, and the ever fast and powerful Google search.
Mailplane supports multiple Gmail and Google Apps accounts; the app lets the user easily switch between accounts without the need to sign in/sign out from the Gmail accounts.
With full iLife integration, users can browse and attach files from their iPhoto and iTunes libraries. Downloads can be directly imported into iPhoto as well. The integrated screenshot tool lets the user take and attach a window, screen or region.
Users can Drag and Drop files and images on the dock application icon, or any Mailplane window to create and upload attachments. And with automatic photo optimization, image attachments can be converted and resized to make the message even smaller.
Mailplane can play a user defined sound, as well as show the number of unread messages in the application icon, account drawer and status menu item. As Mailplane monitors all Gmail accounts, unread message counters and message subjects are displayed for each account. For even more appealing notifications, Mailplane fully integrates with Growl. Mail can be sent directly from the Mac address book, Safari or any application showing "mailto" urls.
Mailplane 2.0 Beta highlights include:
* New Gmail 2 add ons and keyboard shortcuts like Apply/Remove label, navigate to label, and hide spam counter
