Mailbrew Changelog

Updates and improvements to Mailbrew.

14 hours ago


For a few months we've been working a whole new Mailbrew webapp. A small group of beta testers helped us shape it, and we're so excited to finally bring it to all users.

This is big step forward is making Mailbrew much more than "an email you read in the morning". If you visit today you'll find indeed a much faster, better, more comprehensive tool to reduce information overload, follow your passions, enjoy your favorite content.

Brand new interface

Your latest digests are now front and center. We've switched from a feed of brews to a full screen experience focused on reading, not scrolling.​

At the top, you'll find tabs with your latest brews, so you can instantly access them. Just below, there are now dedicated buttons to view past issues, publish or edit a brew.

Links and newsletter can now be saved for later, and even read, right in your brew! More on this below.

We've also took a lot of time to review every single element of Mailbrew's interface, so that every button, background color, border, toggle is pixel perfect.


New Reader Mode

You'll now see a new small "Read" button under each link in your digests. If you click it, a minimal interface will appear to read inside Mailbrew, without having to open a new tab and load a website. ​ This fundamentally changed how we use Mailbrew, saving us precious time spent opening links in many tabs.

Better publishing

We've completely revamped the publishing interface, so it's easier than ever to share your brew, and add new subcribers.


New public brews pages

Public brews like Corey Haines Marketing Weekly or Janel SaaS Investing Digest have completely revamped page, putting their content front and center.. These pages are also fully optimized for small screens.

Install Mailbrew anywhere

We've made Mailbrew a "Progressive Web App", meaning that it can be installed and behave almost like a native application on your computer and smartphone.

Install on your computer: click on your little avatar in the top right corner of the app, and then click "Install".

Install on iPhone: just tap the share button in Safari, and then Add to Homescreen to install Mailbrew. It will open as a standalone app!

Install on Android: when visiting from Android, you'll be prompted to install it. If it doesn't happen, click on your avatar in the tab bar and tap Install.

We've tweaked many elements in the app to appear more native on mobile, so you'll be delighted by this new experience.
