Hop app turns emails and notifications into SMS-like conversations

(TECH NEWS) Nothing is worse than expecting a return message regarding your plans for the night and finding that the vibration of your phone only meant emailed you. The Hop app consolidates it all.

Natural conversations through email

Hop to it! If your phone is synced up to your email, SMS, Facebook, Instagram and not to mention a million more apps, I’m guessing it never stops buzzing. Nothing is worse than expecting a return message regarding your plans for the night and finding that the vibration of your phone only meant emailed you. Well, the new Hop app is here to help.

Hop has found a way to bring email to modern life. By automatically turning emails into chat conversations, the app enables you to communicate in real time while sharing videos, photos, documents, and even voice calls. Hop claims to move away from the formality of emails, allowing you to have more natural conversations with whomever you choose.



So how is this different from any other messenger app? Not until recently did I realize how many apps I was using to simply communicate with people. For instance, I use standard SMS, Facebook messaging, Gmail, and Google Hangouts on a daily basis.

Hop reduces the clutter of using all of these separate apps by utilizing email – because everyone has an email, right? No matter what email you use – Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook – Hop can sync to it and save stored messages with your cloud service.

What else does it do?

Some other benefit of the Hop app include:

Custom Notifications: Create notifications for only certain types of messages or contacts so that your phone isn’t always buzzing

Hop Groups: Prioritize your messages by grouping specific contacts

Quick Search: locate contacts and conversations using a universal search bar

In addition to sending and receiving instant messages, you can still archive, mark as read and organize your messages just like you do with email. Hop is all about bringing your email to life, while providing an organized, and more natural way to communicate with the people that you actually want to talk to.

Try it out for yourself! Simply grab the app for your phone (iOS or Android).
