I want this app
Download from AppStore

Create any number of email shortcuts on your home screen.

One tap on an email shortcut will instantly open a new email draft using the mail app you use every day. You do not need to configure any email account settings, all email is securely processed by the Mail app.

Email Icons will work fast and reliably even without Internet access (in airplane mode, or a parking garage with bad coverage for example). The emails you write and send will wait in an outbox and sent automatically as soon as Internet is available.

==== Uses of email shortcuts ====

Note to self:
Put your email in the TO line, and a subject like "quick note from my phone"
When you tap this icon, the cursor will be waiting for you in the body to type or voice-transcribe a message.
Most email-providers will allow for in-box rules that can look for that subject and mark the email as read (so you don't get a new email pong) or move the email directly into a subfolder of your inbox (like "my notes")

Form letters:
Fill in the subject and body and leave the TO line blank.
When you tap this email icon, the cursor will be waiting for you in the TO field, ready to address and send.
