I just discovered this app yesterday and I’m genuinely excited by it. Stoop is an app that manages your email newsletters. Once you create an account, it gives you a unique email to use when you want to sign up for a newsletter. That way, newsletters go directly to the app, and not your email inbox. There are collections of newsletters inside, broken down by categories like tech, news, crypto, sports, finance, and more. Plus you’ll find curated lists of newsletters. It’s also easy to unsubscribe to newsletters you no longer want. You can link other email accounts and forward newsletters to your Stoop email. There are no notifications either; you’ll be reading the newsletters on your own time, when you want. App Store: Free

Check out this video tip from Apple on working with multiple emails at a time on iPad. This is a new feature to me, and I bet for a lot of other people, too. The short version is that you can use the handle at the top of an email you’re writing to drag it down to the bottom of your screen, where it stays docked. That allows you to peruse your inbox. If you have just one docked email, tapping it brings it back up. If you have more than one, it gives you a Safari tab-like view to pick the one you want. It’s a nifty feature. Oh, and it works in portrait and landscape mode.
