A new tool called PhilterIt features brand icons in the sidebar, allowing you to automatically view emails from certain senders.
PhilterIt is a Chrome extension that lets you browse your Gmail through logos rather than sender name and subject lines. Icons of the brands appear in the sidebar, allowing you to automatically view emails from one sender with a single click. PhilterIt offers a clean and visual interface, with intuitive message separation.
It scans your inbox for mail you’ve received in the last 30 days and displays all of the brands as icons in the sidebar, which can be expanded or minimized. You can select as many brands as you like, and they are hosted on the right hand side of your inbox for quick and easy retrieval.
TechCrunch reports that a small notification will appear if there are unread emails from brands you’ve selected, and you can view them by just clicking the icon. PhilterIt will soon offer the same support for your personal contacts as it does for brands. Watch the tutorial below to see how to setup the sidebar:
