Firemail Turns iPhone Email On Its Side

This image described by iPhone, email, TouchType, Firemail

One of the biggest complaints about composing mail on the iPhone is that it can only be done in "upright" (portrait) mode; two-thumbed typing  in the narrower screen aspect is much harder compared to working in sideways/landscape mode.

A recent 99-cent app (Touchtype) was the first to address this software limitation.  Now comes Firemail, which does everything Touchtype does (and more!), but for free.

Launching Firemail and turning your iPhone/iPod Touch sideways gives you the wider screen layout for typing both subject and body text.   Where Firemail steps ahead is when you hit the action key: you can either send what you’ve typed to MobileMail’s outbox OR save it as a "bookmark," to be called up at a later time.  Great for signature blocks or webapps that work through an email interface.

Firemail requires the 2.0 software to operate.
