Tout app – a personalised annual report of your email use
I don’t know about you, but I’m fascinated by usage statistics. Facebook’s well known for its ‘Year in Review‘ page, giving you an automatically generated breakdown of your 20 biggest moments from the past twelve months. WordPress does this too. And for film lovers, Letterboxd offers something similar.
But what about your email?
Email has long been an important tool for communicating online, but it’s often overlooked from a review standpoint, despite the amount of time we spend using it. Fortunately, there’s now a web app that gives you precisely that – a personalised report showing trends and unique insights into your email habits during 2013.
It’s called Tout, and it’s incredibly easy to use. Grant the web app access to your Gmail or Google Apps email account and in return you’ll get a breakdown of how many emails you’ve sent in the past year, how many you received, as well as some interesting usage trends. Tout will work out your average email send rate per month, your sent reply rate, and more.
To get a better idea, check out a sample report generated by the app.
