Planet Computers today launches its official Airmail application for the Gemini PDA. Available for download from the Google Play store, the app has been developed to be an independent email application for Gemini users running the Android operating system.
Developed specifically for a landscape user interface (UI), Airmail integrates with the Gemini Agenda application to provide users with shortcut keys to quickly and effectively manage their workload.
Based on K-9, Airmail allows you to access IMAP, POP3 and Exchange (via WebDAV) email accounts and includes a number of unique features, such as: messaging preview bar; advanced search function to sort emails by sender, date, subject and attachment; and compatibility with both keyboard and mouse controls.
Airmail is a reincarnation of its namesake - the worlds’ first email to mobile service - which launched in 1994 and was also built by Planet Computers CEO, Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel. The original Airmail application converted email messages to SMS and used the GSM network to deliver these to mobile devices.
The release of the app marks a continuation of investment in software for Planet Computers’ handset devices – the award-winning Gemini PDA and Cosmo Communicator.
Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel, CEO of Planet Computers comments: “Email on the go is one of the major reasons for writing on the move. We brought back Airmail in the form of an Android app – closely aligned with Gemini and Cosmo – to offer users a new way to manage their workload using the keyboard functionality and landscape user experience of our products. The integration with other Planet Computers apps gives our users the ability to be more productive on the go.”
