AwayFind for Gmail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just don't get people who slam a great service because YOU can't use it. For some extremely simple applications, yes, you can configure gmail to forward to an email to SMS gateway for free. This is not what AwayFind does. They are not a simple SMS text service.

And, I've tried the VIP mailbox on Apple iPhone which simply doesn't work.

AwayFind works with any iMap or gmail account and has the most powerful SMS, push, or automated message service I've ever used. It's like having your own private secretary to read your emails and make intelligent decision as to if you need to attend to it.

For crying out loud, I can set a filter to look from an email from someone who sends me dozens of messages per day, but only alert me if the email mentions dinner reservations, and for this week only otherwise delete itself, but not before sending an auto-reply back to the sender telling them I'm on for tonight but still working late.

Try doing that with an SMS gateway.

If I had to make one gripe, I haven't found a way to delete email accounts. Push notifications actually DO work. And, if you don't trust them, you can send push as well as SMS, selectively.

I guess that if, hypothetically speaking, you're still living in your mom's basement writing bad reviews to amuse yourselves, then this isn't for you. For those of us with a social life, it's a must-have service for which I've been waiting forever.

For the rest of you, Live long and prosper or something.

Thank-you for removing this thorn from my side. Installed on v2.0.0.22 on Intel Mac. Worked first time, every time.

This quickly became the most invaluable plug-in for viewing websites which were previously inaccessible.
