Do you have a ton of photos in your inbox? Do you find yourself constantly looking for them? Is there a nagging voice in your head telling you to do something to archive those photos? Or does it feel like you always searching for documents you received but can’t seem to find on your phone?

If so, there is a neat new app for the iPhone that enables you to quickly and easily browse through your email attachments. It’s called Filey and you can find it at The app is currently available for free for public email domains like Gmail, Yahoo, etc. Business email domains will be available soon for $50/year.

You can search through the From, To, Subject or file name fields by keyword.

You also have the ability to filter by photos, documents or sender.

Filter Email Attachments with Filey

Filey also has an advanced feature that allows you to view or browse the contents of .zip files without going through the trouble of downloading and extracting its contents.

Filey for Desktop is coming soon and I’m really looking forward to trying it out! Especially since, according to their website, Filey will have email attachments from all your mailboxes downloaded into one folder on your computer. I’ll keep you posted.

So, if you’re always looking for attachments in email, this is an ultra-simple, straightforward app that allows you to find what you need and share it quickly without a fuss.

What do you think—will you be giving Filey a try? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
