MailTime, The App That Lets You Treat Emails Like Instant Messages, Is Now Available For Android

The Play Store is getting a new email client. Big deal, right? It's not as if we're suffering for lack of options.

You didn't ask for a bunch of metadata, you just got it. The app parses your emails to separate the actual messages from the rest of the clutter.

The primary interface is, at first glance, much like any other email client. You have a list of threads to choose from. But when you open them up, you see an SMS-esque UI that makes it loud and clear that this is not your father's mail app.

Appfour Continues Cramming Big Things Onto Tiny Watch Screens With Calendar For Android Wear

You can already use a browser, email client, and video player on Android Wear thanks to Appfour, and now you can check your calendar too. This dev specializes (apparently) in taking full-size apps and shoehorning them into the small form factor provided by Android Wear. Sometimes it's a bad idea, but it's at least good for a laugh. This one seems somewhat useful, though.
