Earlier this year EasilyDo released a new app for Android, with the descriptive name 'Email.' It was basically a feature-clone of Google's Inbox for non-Gmail accounts, giving you the same intelligent mail sorting, package tracking, travel bundling features on your third party accounts. It is a popular application. And, today EasilyDo is changing its name to Edison, and 'Email' will now be known as Edison Mail.
In addition to the rebranding effort, two new features are also coming to Edison Mail in the form of Smart Replies and a Security Assistant. The former doesn't seem to be available in the Android app quite yet, but it is fairly self-explanatory if you've used Inbox. It just provides predetermined responses based on the context of a given email, for quick replies. Security Assistant is pretty cool in that it's meant to let you know if one of your accounts has been compromised. There isn't a lot of information on how exactly that might work, but it sounds useful, and an increase in security awareness is always good for users.
The update appears to be live on Google Play. So, whether you're hearing about it for the first time, or you've been using it for a while now, you should be able to try out this latest version whenever you like.
