Email ‘n Walk was most probably developed for individuals who like to multitask – walking somewhere and simultaneously communicating with other individuals through emails or text messages using the phone while navigating the busy streets or halls of the office. We all know that everyone has done this at least once. And now, with Email ‘n Walk, iPhone users no longer have to keep glancing up from composing emails to make sure they are not headed towards a wall.
Email ‘n Walk allows users to (somewhat) safely compose emails while walking. The application provides a unique view of the user’s surroundings. It uses the iPhone’s integrated camera to get an image of the user’s surroundings and uses it as the background for the email composition window.
Use of the application is fairly easy. Tapping on the icon launches the screen for composing emails.
Users simply compose the message and press Send.
The one thing that people may complain about is the screen of the application itself. While some people may want the image around them displayed full screen, Email ‘n Walk is unable to provide this feature – the keyboard still uses up half of the screen.
It should be noted though that this application is still fairly new. There may still be a lot of new features and improvements added in the succeeding releases.
The application is useful and fun at the same time. And for the price, it is definitely a good buy.
The Email ‘n Walk application is available for purchase and download at the App Store for only $0.99.
The Email ‘n Walk application’s integration with the iPhone is seamless. It was done excellently and gets 5 out of 5 for that. The user interface, however, can do with more improvement. It is just about average. Reusability value of the application is also average. All in all, Email ‘n Walk application gets a rating of 3.5 out of 5. Not quite perfect, but still a cool application to have.
The Email ‘n Walk application has the following features:
Compose and send emails.
Mail composer provides a transparent view of the surroundings taken from the iPhone’s built-in camera.
