Incredimail Recreates the Email Experience
Beginning with the iPad, Incredimail gives you your inbox with a better view
TEL AVIV, Israel & SEATTLE -- March 7, 2013
Perion Network Ltd. (NASDAQ: PERI), developer of the leading email client
Incredimail, today debuted its latest version of Incredimail, forever changing
the email experience for iPad owners. Incredimail for the iPad is the first
email application truly adapted for the touch-screen, and is the first major
redesign of email in over 20 years. It redesigns the inbox, unifies multiple
email accounts, creates a photo inbox from your friends and family Facebook
photos, and elevates messages so their contents can easily be seen by users at
a glance, in an intuitive “magazine-by-touch” format.

“We love email and believe it is, and will remain, a vital form of
communication for years to come. But the new Incredimail is more than that. It
is both a unified messaging application, including a photo inbox, as well as a
bold new step in recreating the experience as needed for a multi-screen world,
especially for newer mobile formats that have seen explosive growth,” said
Josef Mandelbaum, CEO of Perion. “We think users, especially our users, are
going to love Incredimail for the iPad. It changes the entire email
experience, tailored just for devices like the iPad. We look forward to
extending this quality experience to the iPhone, Android and other devices
later this year and eventually even bring this exciting new email to the
In its recent survey^1, Perion found that consumers, especially second wave
adopters, now prefer the iPad for reading and writing email, beating out PCs
and smartphones by a wide margin. But the survey also found that typically
passionate iPad users were not as pleased as they could be with their current
email choices. Previous email applications were designed for the PC era, and
until now, there has not been a major rethink of the email experience for a
multi-screen mobile world.
Incredimail's striking visual design provides innovative functionality for
users, to easily view and share email content, including articles, photos and
videos. Incredimail redesigns the email experience, bringing the elegance and
ease-of-use consumers love from the iPad to their inboxes.
Incredimail is available for free download in the App Store. Highlights that
users can enjoy with Incredimail for the iPad include:
*Unified Inbox: Add as many email accounts as you want and view them in a
unified inbox, or view each account separately. Incredimail currently
supports Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, and any other IMAP account.
*Quick Peeks: See a quick preview of emails directly from the inbox,
without having to open them.
*Photo Inbox: In addition to the regular email inbox, enjoy a photo inbox
that features photos from friends and family, keeping you fully up to date
with the people that matter most (starting with Facebook photos, others
will be added soon).
*Link Previews (a.k.a. Snippets): All links sent to you including photos,
videos and articles, are presented as a preview within the email for a
pleasant and uninterrupted email experience. Links you send are also
viewed as previews by the email recipient.
*Email Stationery: Enjoy a specially designed email stationery collection
to add a personal style to emails you send. Additional stationery and rich
content coming soon.
*Built-In Web Browser: Search and browse the web right inside your inbox,
ensuring an uninterrupted experience.
*Future features to include: POP3 email support, other social platforms
like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, and more photo integration with
Picasa Web, Flickr and Instagram.
“Incredimail brings together the potential of new devices with the beautiful
visual interface that iPad users enjoy,” said Ron Harari, General Manager of
Perion’s Communication Products Division. “The team has been focused on the
vision of bringing a new look to email and we're proud to deliver some
exciting new tweaks to the best of traditional email."
