The Mail app for iOS offers a simple way for users to manage multiple email accounts with relative ease, but for some, the basic features don’t stretch far enough. The jailbreak community operates with the mentality that there’s always some room for improvement, and Mail Enhancer Pro, a tweak developed by Stefan Mollenkamp, has long since been seen as the antidote for those pining for a better mail experience. Now, Mollenkamp has just introduced Mail Enhancer Pro iOS 6, and along with all the features we know and love from the previous iteration, additional niceties have also been added to the mix especially for iOS 6.
As with other -Enhancer type tweaks, this one takes the Mail app to a new dimension. For example, if you want to add multiple signatures for each Mail account, you can with Mail Enhancer, and while there’s no native support for HTML, Mail Enhancer will allow you to code not only your signature, but the main body of your email messages.
Setting specific rules for incoming emails is something of a breeze, and the list of custom notifications – from the ability to vibrate a set amount of times, to the use of a sound file or iTunes Ringtone – is seemingly endless.
As somebody who regularly uses the email app within iOS (and by regularly, I mean every three or four minutes), I have, like many, seen Mail Enhancer as a vital download for each of my iOS devices. From its ability to announce emails using names in Contacts, to the ingenuous Mail Highlighting feature which allows colors to be used in order to differentiate between different types of mail, it’s long since been seen as the Mail app Apple should have implemented from the get-go.
If you want to enhance your own Mail app, you will of course need an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The tweak is available to download right now over at the BigBoss repo, at a cost of $4.99. As far as jailbreak tweaks go, it’s pretty expensive, but with such a strong reputation for delivering a great performance, it’s worth every cent.
