I've been putting this off for a long time now, but needn't have worried.
You know the feeling. You turn on your computer and open your email and just sigh in dismay at the amount of emails you have to deal with in your inbox. Over time the odd newsletter sign up builds into an avalanche of daily emails and it seems you spend more time deleting the ones you don't want than reading the important ones.
Well, I reached that point again and resigned myself to hours of going through them and clicking the unsubscribe button in each one; not something I was looking forward to.
Anyway, after about the twentieth unsubscribe I thought to myself someone, somewhere must have built an app to make this a simple task, so I fired up Google to make a search and hey presto, I found a free app which did just this. UnrollMe
is as simple as it could possibly be to clean up your inbox in just a couple of minutes. You simply add your email address and this tool scans your inbox for your newsletter signups, and as you can see from the screenshot above, it found 665 subscriptions in my inbox.
If I'd done this manually, it would have taken me a good couple of hours, maybe more. But this will never be an issue again. click a few buttons and hey presto, your inbox is clean as the tool automatically unsubscribes you.
They'll even send me an email with all my subscriptions I still want in one email, how cool is that.
Currently, it works with Outlook.com (including Hotmail, MSN, & Windows Live), Gmail, Google Apps, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, and iCloud.
Here's an interview with the founder and a quick demo of the tool...
