Welcome to FreshInbox’s first post.
After a weekend full of experimenting, I was able to come up with examples of Interactive Content in email that worked with Yahoo! Mail, Outlook.com (aka Hotmail) and the native clients of iOS and Android as well as “degrade” nicely on the other major email clients. Since I’m a geek at heart, I’ve decided to spend time finding ways to leverage this new avenue and use this blog as a way to document my findings.
After decades of “static” content in email, it looks like there might be a glimmer of hope for innovation in email. I’m hoping that designers will make use of this and perhaps we can convince the titans of email (Yahoo!, Microsoft and Google) to work with the email community to bring more ways to move email forward!
