Electric Pocket recently launched a cool new application for BlackBerry that gives you the ability to personalize the alert tone for incoming emails. The app lets you set a different tone for each and every friend, family member or colleague in your Address Book, and there’s a large variety of tones available.
MailTones lets you set a tone for a specific user, or one for all incoming emails from a specific domain – making it easy to recognize incoming emails from work colleagues or customers. In fact, MailTones can help you distinguish high priority emails from your boss or wife from lower priority emails from college buddies, Facebook status updates, or email lists. You can develop your own system for screening incoming emails by setting your default mail tone to silent, or ignore, and using MailTones to set specific tones for higher priority people and subjects. You can then know whether or not to interrupt your meeting or conversation to check your email.
