Unsubcriber App Specifications

The App is available for free to download on the App Store. The only main requirement is of iOS 7.1 or later. The Unsubscriber is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It has also been optimised for iPhone 5 and later, so hard luck for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users.

There have been many app similar to these which were launched before Unsubscriber app but the problem was that those apps only filtered the Gmail app. So, what happened with that was that you were not unsubscribed from an email list, but just temporarily filtered out from the Gmail app, which made no sense at all because when you access that account from another device you will see those emails again.

There is one more app similar to this is called Unroll me. With that app, it was possible to unsubscribe with just a single click. Along with that, there was one feature which allowed to combine all those subscriptions into one list, so that you get an idea that which lists you have subscribed. It gives you a reminder everyday at the same time so that your emails never suffer. Mailstorm is one more app on this list.

There are many reviews about this app along with some exceptions too. Like some of the users think that the app is too slow and they get a message displaying that “Gmail is too slow” and hence we are not able to unsubscribe from the lists. The users thought that it would have been easier to manually unsubscribe from the email lists during those times. So, there are still some parts that needs to be looked at. Let’s see whether the makers of Unsubscriber comes with a revamped version of the app free from such minor bugs, other than that the app is very useful for professionals and home users alike.
