Recently Released iPad App That Gives You an Inbox with a Better View Sees Strong Growth in Europe, Heavy Demand in Both France and Germany
TEL AVIV, Israel & SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: PERI) (http://www.perion.com/), developer of the leading email client Incredimail, announced today that its recently released Incredimail for iPad has achieved 250,000 downloads worldwide in just one month on the app store. The app has also seen strong growth in Europe and, due to heavy user demand in both France and Germany, the app has been translated into French and German.
"We are extremely happy with the user adoption we have seen so far and we are really excited by the strong showing of the app in European markets. We love email and believe it is, and will remain, a vital form of communication for years to come. The new Incredimail for iPad gives users a whole new way to experience email," said Josef Mandelbaum, CEO of Perion. "Because of the incredible interest we have seen from our users in France and Germany, we decided to accelerate our plans to localize the app for those markets."
Incredimail for the iPad is the first email application truly adapted for the touch-screen, and is the first major redesign of email in over 20 years. In its recent survey [http://www.perion.com/presscenter], Perion found that consumers, especially second wave adopters, now prefer the iPad for reading and writing email, beating out PCs and smartphones by a wide margin. But the survey also found that typically passionate iPad users were not as pleased as they could be with their current email choices. Previous email applications were designed for the PC era, and until now, there has not been a major rethink of the email experience for a multi-screen mobile world.
Incredimail's striking visual design provides innovative functionality for users, to easily view and share email content, including articles, photos and videos. Incredimail redesigns the email experience bringing the elegance and ease-of-use consumers love from the iPad to their inboxes.
Incredimail is available for free download in the App Store. Highlights that users can enjoy with Incredimail for the iPad include:
Unified Inbox: Add as many email accounts as you want and view them in a unified inbox, or view each account separately. Incredimail currently supports Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, and any other IMAP account.
Quick Peeks: See a quick preview of emails directly from the inbox, without having to open them.
Photo Inbox: In addition to the regular email inbox, enjoy a photo inbox that features photos from friends and family, keeping you fully up to date with the people that matter most (starting with Facebook photos, others will be added soon).
Link Previews (a.k.a. Snippets): All links sent to you including photos, videos and articles, are presented as a preview within the email for a pleasant and uninterrupted email experience. Links you send are also viewed as previews by the email recipient.
Email Stationery: Enjoy a specially designed email stationery collection to add a personal style to emails you send. Additional stationery and rich content coming soon.
Built-In Web Browser: Search and browse the web right inside your inbox, ensuring an uninterrupted experience.
Future features to include: POP3 email support, other social platforms like Facebook Twitter and LinkedIn, and more photo integration with Picasa Web, Flickr and Instagram.
