Android: custom swipe actions

custom swipe actions

By default, swiping left or right marks an email as Seen or Unseen. Now you can customize the swipe behavior in all sorts of ways. Prefer that a left swipe moves something to the Set Aside box? You can do that. Want to put something in the Reply Later box when you swipe right? You can do that too. Swipe right to like this message.

Android: print emails

Someone once said that the difference between a toy and a real computer is determined by whether you can print from it. We added the ability to print emails in HEY for Android, so congrats, you’ve got a handheld computer now.

Android: richer notifications

If you turn on notifications for threads or senders, we now show even more good stuff without having to open the HEY app. Now we show the sender’s photo, their name, and a more robust summary of the email.

Android: actionable notifications

HEY for Android v1.0.11 brings a trio of enhancements:

  • You can mark emails as Seen, Reply Later, or Set Aside right from the notification. Super fast, super useful.
  • There’s now a check to make sure your Android device can cut the mustard. If it’s not going to work, we’d rather be clear and up front about it.
  • The HEY menu is displayed in the other boxes too.

Android: open attachments in your default app

You probably want to do something with the email attachments that you receive. HEY for Android has your back. PDFs, calendar invites, text, and HTML files now open directly in your device’s default app for those file types.
