Does what it is supposed to do
Works well. Occasional delayed alerts keep it from getting 5 stars.

It does what I need
This app does what I need. My Skytel pager for work has a feature that lets me copy the pages it gets to an alternate email address. I send them off to the mailtones.net address and I get customized alerts on my iphone. There are zillions of tones to choose from. The pop up alerts do not include the subject of the email as it says in the mailtones description, however. The pop up alerts only include the original sender's email address. But that's good enough for me. It would be nice if the app kept a history log of the alerts that came in that you could review - even a day or two of history would be useful. My regular iPhone email is Yahoo, but this app works for me since I'm only using it to get the redirected pages from my Skytel pager and not mail form Yahoo.

Super great app. The ONLY one like its kind
I bet people have trouble setting up this app. If you do it the right way it works perfectly. I have no trouble at all and it's cool to here all the different alerts that you wanna here. I know junk mail from important emails. When are you going to get funny alerts or the one that says " mail mutha f**ka"! That would be awesome!!

Works great - need to follow directions
This app works great but you do need to be able to follow directions. Worth every penny. Now I have a different tone for my work email and personal email and have it configured to not make any tone while I'm sleeping. Only wish I could use custom toned or download more.

I use this app to notify me of when people send an "MMS" to my email address for free picture messaging, and I set a silent (no vibrate/sound) for everything else so it's not intrusive, but I don't have to jump to the mail app every time I get an email to see if it's important. Additionally, I have flagged certain important friends to have special sounds. Awesome! New sounds in the latest update are great. Thanks for this awesome app!

Great for on-call!
The app works as advertised when mail forwarding is properly configured. You must configure your email to forward to the email address provided by the app. Push notification is fast and reliable. The app is particularly helpful when I am on-call for work! I really like the new long email tones, too!
