We thought we’d write a quick update and tell you what’s been happening in Fluentland. We launched our beta on February 21 and were blown away by the media attention and number of people who were eager to try us out. We’re furiously working to let all of them on, but in the meantime we’ve also rolled out some features to keep all our important users happy!
Here are the most important changes to Fluent over the last few weeks (on top of a slew of bug fixes that people have been kind enough to notify us about):
We like archiving, but lots of you like deleting as well, so we made it a first-class citizen in your Fluent stream. Click once one the trash icon and you’re done: another email closer to inbox zero!
The biggest thing we’ve been spending time with has been syncing changes made in Gmail or other clients (like your mobile phone). We’ve now got it so that within 15 minutes you should see changes (including deletes) synced into Fluent, but we’ll keep working hard on it.
When you’ve got a lot of emails to get through it’s good to be in the zone. And clicking “Show more” all the time takes you out of that zone. To keep you fully zoneified Fluent now loads more emails automatically. Keep scrolling all the way to San Jose.
Sometimes you want to reply all, sometimes you want to reply just to the sender. If you take a peek in the dropdown menu for an email you’ll now find a “Reply to sender” option which will do just that.
Resizable reading panel
Some people like peanut butter ice cream, some people don’t (weirdos). Some people also like to read their emails at a narrower width, so we made the reading panel size adjustable. Grab its left edge and you can adjust it just how you like.
Thanks again to everyone who’s using Fluent and helping us turn it into the best email experience for your workflow! Your feedback is invaluable, so keep it coming.
