  With 400k Downloads Of Incredimail For iPad, Perion Has Found The Killer
  Feature For Email Apps – Reading Emails

With So Much Of The Industry Focused On The Holy Grail Of ‘Inbox Zero’, Many
Email Clients Fail To Deliver A Pleasant Reading Experience

TEL AVIV, Israel & SEATTLE -- July 1, 2013

Perion, developer of the innovative Incredimail for iPad app, announced today
that its new email client has been downloaded over 400 thousand times in just
over three months since it launched. The company also revealed that users are
highly engaged by the app, using it several times a day and swiping through
eight pages of mails every time they use the app.

Incredimail for iPad launched just three months ago and brought a radically
new email experience to users. The app reimagines email and it has been
designed specifically for a touch interface. The app allows users to flip,
swipe, and peak through their emails with a beautifully designed magazine-like
interface. The whole experience has been centered on making reading emails
easier and more enjoyable.

The Killer Feature Of An Email Client

Much of the discussion surrounding email clients today is focused on reaching
“Inbox Zero” – having no unread emails. The discussion surrounding this issue
has framed Inbox Zero as the Holy Grail of email clients. Following feedback
and conversations with its users on the importance of clearing their inboxes,
Perion discovered two key results: users do indeed place a high priority on
clearing their inbox; users are already succeeding in doing so. These results
run counter to the popular belief that users are struggling to clear their
inboxes.

“It’s clear that marking all messages as read is important to users, but it’s
also a goal most users are already achieving,” said Josef Mandelbaum, CEO of
Perion. “What has been sorely lacking is a new paradigm for email that makes
the process more enjoyable and focuses on the core email experience – reading
messages. Incredimail for iPad is optimized for reading and enjoying your
emails, and leverages the power, simplicity, and inviting nature of touch
devices to do so.”

Incredimail for iPad was designed with the central focus of making it more
enjoyable and easier to read mails, not just filing messages away or marking
them as read. The redesigned inbox, with its large previews, peek feature that
lets user quickly see the content of an email, and swipeable layout with
multiple messages displayed at once, allows users to quickly scan through
their emails and pull out the relevant content. Additionally, users can see
content such as photos, videos, and articles from within the app thanks to
Incredimail’s snippet feature, helping to ensure the most pleasant email
experience.

Additionally, usage data from its iPad app show that users are highly engaged
by the app and the streamlined experience it provides for reading email.
Active users enter the app an average of three times per day and are swiping
through inbox pages up to eight times per session. Additionally, the app has
seen 37 million total page swipes, 23 million total emails received, and over
34.5 million push notifications.

Performance Enhancements And New Features

In the latest Incredimail for iPad version users will find significant
performance improvements making the fast software even faster. Incredimail now
offers enhanced capabilities to assist with archiving, managing and moving
messages to folders directly from full screen message view for a much smoother
experience. Additionally, Incredimail is the first email app which allows
users to share content directly to Facebook from within the app.

Additionally, the app has now been localized for seven additional languages
including: Chinese (Mandarin & Traditional), Italian, Japanese, Korean,
Portuguese, and Spanish (Spain).
