Update February 27, 2011: The wait is over. MsgFiler is now available on the Mac App Store!
While I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch, I’m happy to announce the upcoming release of MsgFiler 3.0, available exclusively on the Mac App Store. I submitted the app for approval last week, and it’s currently awaiting review.
Astute readers might stop and ask, “Wait a minute, aren’t Mail plugins not allowed on the Mac App Store?” You’re right that they aren’t, but MsgFiler is no longer a Mail plugin! In a way, MsgFiler has come full circle. The original release was a separate application built using AppleScript Studio. MsgFiler 2.0 was rewritten as a Mail plugin. Now with MsgFiler 3.0, it’s back to being a separate application that communicates with Mail via AppleScript. Longtime users should not worry; there’s still tight integration between MsgFiler 3.0 and Mail.
I’m excited about the new features in MsgFiler 3.0, many of which were direct requests from users over the years:
- Favorite mailboxes
- Recent mailboxes
- Ability to create new mailboxes from within MsgFiler
- Configurable default action
- Exclude mailboxes
- Match on mailbox names only
- Restrict search to selected accounts
- Full keyboard access
Check out the MsgFiler 3.0 product video. I’m sure it will get you pumped up and ready to buy it when it becomes available!
There will be a special introductory price of $4.99 for MsgFiler the first week it’s on the Mac App Store. That’s right, you’ll be able to get MsgFiler at 50% off for one week only!
I’m really excited about this new release, and how it’s going to help Mac users save time decluttering their inboxes!
