BounceMyX: iPhone App Video and Written Review
Do you get a lot of emails from people you’d rather not? As the title of the app suggests, are you stuck in the backlogs of a dead relationship, trying to find any way in which you can kindly discourage your old flame from sending you long, dreary emails? If so, then you’re in luck! BounceMyX by developer C2SaaS is the perfect solution to all your wayward email woes. The app makes it easy to send back a fake failure to deliver notice, which in turn should deter all but the most persistent of emailers. It’s a great little tool, and for our full review, you only need to jump down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
The basic premise behind BounceMyX is simple: For whatever reason, we’re going to assume that you receive quite a few emails you wish would simply stop. This may be something as simple as a bevy of letters from an Ex, or it may be as complicated as non-robotized spam from your Aunt—you know, like all those chain letters. In other words, BounceMyX is an app built for those moments when you need an email to stop, but don’t know how to tell the person to stop sending them. The easiest way to do it? Send them a fake failed-to-send notice.
BounceMyX offers three of these emails, and as the app ties directly into your email account, it could not be easier to send such a notice out. Firstly, there’s a 550 user unknown error, followed by a 553 host unknown error. And lastly, our favorite is the 554 mailbox full error, which acts as if there’s simply no room left in your mailbox for the sender’s letter. It’s quick, effective, and above all else, stops the emails from arriving.
Design and Layout
First off the bat, we’d simply like to say that BounceMyX isn’t quite the prettiest app we’ve ever seen, but in strange ways. The app feels a bit large, in the sense that it doesn’t use all the negative space it might should. All the same, the features work flawlessly, and we had no problem at all attaching our Gmail account to the app. Furthermore, we loved how quick and easy it was to send a fake email directly from the inbox. Don’t expect to read your emails here regularly, though, as the rendering of your messages is akin to Notepad, at best.
In our eyes, BounceMyX is exactly one dollar too pricy. Still, for the money charged we have a feeling you’ll get a lot of use out of BounceMyX. If you’ve been looking for just such an app, there’s no better option, and even with the two dollar price tag involved, BounceMyX is still easily a bargain. It earns our full recommendation, especially to the digitally desperate.
BounceMyX requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
