Richbiff: E-Mail Message Notification with Richer Clues
- 1.5k Downloads
Traditional e-mail notification applications, which notify the user of newly arrived messages, are frequently insufficient because users daily receive a vast number of messages. Hence, we propose an e-mail notification application that peripherally displays summaries of messages in the form of kinetic typography. In addition, it infers the possibility of a message being read to control notification levels and conceals parts of words to avoid exposing excessive personal information. We have qualitatively confirmed the effects of the application through trial use; it can strongly attract users’ attention and motivate the user to check significant messages.
