Flagit! brings multi colored flags to Mail.app. Flagit! also allows you to "mark" emails as completed, keeping track of when the flag was set , who applied the flag, and when it was marked as completed. Now you use icons other than flags - we supply a bunch and you can create and add your own to the new Icon menu. With Flagit! installed on additional computers (separate license required) Flagit! flags transfer over the 'net on IMAP accounts so all users have access to Flagit! flags and can change or modify the flags. Great for accounts that have multiple users.
What's new in this version:
Mailbox coloring menu had disappeared on some systems. Fixed.
The developer was instantly responsive, and fixed every bug we could find, seeming to work all night long! It now works perfect with imap, and I'm loving not having to crawl through mountains of flags to get to the ones I need! Smart mailboxes too!
Had some problems with smart mailbox searches and imap. Fixed!
I use flags a lot. Usually have a couple hundred of them. Apple forgot to allow different flags for different needs: urgent, pending, later, friends, projects, etc. This does the trick, and allows for smart mailboxes as well. A must have!
Easy to use Fast, intuitive learning curve IMAP support Great customer support Works on Snow Leopard
A bit slow on IMAP if the the IMAP account is large and the connection is slow. But not so slow as to call it a strike.
If you get a lot of email you'll love Flagit!. You can quickly go through your inbox, tagging messages with individual flags for future action. Helps you get rid of the chaff that gets past the SPAM filters and lets you focus on important items. You can create as many different flags as you need - in any color you desire - and all flags created by any user are displayed across the 'net in IMAP folders.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I process a LOT of email every day seven days a week.
In light of this, I find flagit to be invaluable.
I especially like the fact that I can choose to have the subject heading
made into the same color as my flag
which enables me to scan my flagged emails even faster.
Before I knew it... I had created a lot of custom flags
and one moment when I didn't know what a flag was...
I just clicked on the flag in question and there was my custom label!
On top of this, this is another great app from TastApps.
Besides always being always high quality...
(Videobox and Websnapper are fantastic)
you simply can't beat the customer service Tim and Tom give.
Put flagit to the test for a couple of days,
and I am sure you'll be as grateful for it as I am.
Version: Flagit! 1.2b
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. The site says this may be buggy. It is.
Once you use a custom colored flag, there is no way to unflag it. That command is grayed out on the Mark it menu (the way one invokes Flagit.)
An initial release of a product that is buggy never bodes well.
