Unroll me from my email pain

You know how when you sign up for anything online these days, you almost always get opted in to some kind of mailing list. And while service like the excellent Mailbox app for Gmail helps you manage the torrent of email so much easier today, services like Unroll.me go that step further.

Want to keep getting emails from some services? Add them to your daily rollup and you’ll get the full list in one email every day.

Want to unsubscribe from some random thing you forgot you signed up for? It’ll do that for you in one click.

The only concern is giving even more personal data to yet another company. But if you know your mail is being constantly harvested by Google anyway, the trade off of convenience to privacy is so far into the convenience aisle, I’m comfortable. For now.

And, you know, inbox zero.
