Our student, Branko Cerny, currently a senior at Dartmouth College, has been working on a technology startup aiming to redefine the way we interact with email.
With the belief that email should serve you, not take over your life, Branko and his team have been developing SquareOne, a mobile email assistant. The iPhone app learns whom you communicate with, and then by contextualizing this information, organizes your mailbox, presorts incoming messages, and gives you control over what sorts of messages you get notified about. It parses through the clutter for you, making email what it is supposed to be – a simple, stress-free communication tool.
The iPhone application is currently in its beta testing phase, and the team is planning on expanding to other platforms, like Android and desktop. More about the project can be found at: www.http://squareone-mail.com
