WeMail, a Mercer Island, WA-based email app designed for mobile devices, raised over $1m in funding.
Investors included Justin Kan and Emmett Shear, founders of Twitch, Tikhon Bernstam, the founder of Scribd and Parse, Sean Byrnes, the founder of Flurry, and Steve Huffman, co-founder of Reddit and Hipmunk.
Founded in 2013 by Philip and Gerald Yuen, both Y Combinator Founder Alumnus, WeMail provides instant email delivery, an inbox organized into conversations by email sender, advanced search capability, and enables email via WeMail Voice (with note up to 20 seconds long). It automatically organizes email by sender, providing a chat-like experience based on the way people naturally communicate.
The app is free and available now in Google Play with iOS coming soon.
