Unsubscribe.com Launches Mobile App at BlackBerry Conference

Filed under: BlackBerry,Industry News,Mobile Related,Mobility |



Unsubscribe.com, the online service that stops unwanted email at its source, today announced the launch of their app for BlackBerry, bringing the total number of supported platforms to 21. The application brings the powerful Unsubscribe.com button to BlackBerry’s mobile platform, where users can now begin to safely eliminate unwanted email directly through their handheld device. Unwanted commercial email, also known as Bacon, has now reached over 50% of the average inbox. There were over 10 trillion Bacon messages sent in 2010, which is expected to double over the next few years.

Once installed, an Unsubscribe.com option will appear in the BlackBerry email menu below the delete option. When Unsubscribe.com is selected for an unwanted email from either the main inbox or individual message view, a screen will appear that informs the user they are “Unsubscribing,” while the Unsubscribe.com App deletes the email and unsubscribes the user’s email address from the mailing list that generated the unwanted email. For further productivity and traveling convenience, BlackBerry users can Unsubscribe.com even while their BlackBerry is offline, or not in a service area.

“Unsubscribe.com is extremely excited to launch our first mobile app,” said Co-Founder and CEO of Unsubscribe.com, James Siminoff, “BlackBerry is the phone for people serious about mobile email and our service fits perfectly with that user base.”

Unsubscribe.com officially launches the app at the 2011 BlackBerry Conference on May 3-5 in Orlando, Florida. To download Unsubscribe.com’s app, go to www.unsubscribe.com/bbapp.
