The application also allows you to choose from several pre-defined animations, while providing you with an option to download and install new ones.

Considering it is a animated application, we put it through a series of tests. We saw that it uses moderate amount of RAM (38 MB), however, whenever there is a new notification, the CPU usage jumps considerably.

Techie Buzz Verdict

This application is not something that has not been done before. However, it is innovative in the sense in which it displays the new email notifications. Other than that, we would like to see support for multiple Gmail accounts in the app.

Looking at the system usage trends, we saw that the app tends to jump up in CPU usage whenever animations are displayed, this though does not hinder in your other activities, but system with low RAM may tend to hang up at times.

Download this app, if you love animations and want to keep a check on your emails.

Techie Buzz Ratings: 2.5/5 (Good)
