Cleanfox – Mail & Spam Cleaner - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Before Cleanfox we developed Misterfox, an app that helped you automatically claim a refund in France whenever your train was late.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The biggest challenge was to develop an inbox-cleaning tool that was compatible with any email provider. Most inbox cleaning tools were focused on main email providers whereas we wanted to offer this service to any email user in the world!

The interviewee, Louis, the marketing manager at Cleanfox.
Foxintelligence is a company that develops web applications in order to save time and money to its users. Foxintelligence aims at automating everyday tasks that may be unpleasant and time-consuming such as, for instance, deleting commercial emails (newsletters and spam).

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Lilo browser is a great way to search for stuff online while helping the planet! They also offer an eco-friendly web provider. With these apps, you do not need to change your habits to act for good which is great!
Spark email is a great app to manage your inbox more efficiently with or without internet access.
Fatmap is a mountain map app with a great UX that helps you explore mountains and itineraries!

How long have you been working on this app?

It took us 3 months to launch a beta. But since we launched Cleanfox, 6 years ago, we have not stopped improving the app and adding new features!

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We wanted to help user clean up their inbox with a free and easy tool because any with an email address knows the pains of getting hundreds of unwanted newsletters.

We also wanted to provide them with an easy tool to fight against digital pollution at their scale. Indeed, deleting unwanted emails has an impact on the environment since one single stored email emits around 10g CO2 per year. With Cleanfox, you can with just a few clicks reduce your carbon footprint by more than hundreds of kilos of CO2. It is also a great way to raise awareness around digital pollution which is really needed.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

First, we are compatible with almost all email providers contrary to our competitors.

Second, we help users reduce their carbon footprint by deleting old emails stored in their inboxes. We then give them detailed statistics about the impact of the cleaning. If they want to go further, they can refer friends on Cleanfox and we will plant trees on their behalf with our partner WeForest!

Last but not least, we are 100% GDPR compliant. Using Cleanfox will never present any harm to your personal data and privacy. We are fully transparent with our users and explain to them why our product is free and how we make sure their privacy is protected!

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We have a lot of new exciting features that we should roll out in the next 12 months, but that’s a surprise!

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Clean as many old emails as possible to have the biggest environmental impact and most importantly spread the word in order to maximize the impact!
