TickleTrain works with Apple Mail and Mailbox for the iPhone, iPad and Mac


All of Apple’s devices work perfectly with TickleTrain. If you like using Apple products, you’ll appreciate how TickleTrain works as well. We try to keep the interface clean and take the complexity out of using a sophisticated service. TickleTrain does this by being incredibly quick to use and unobtrusive. When sending an email, just simply add one more email to your outgoing message. This email address is placed in the BCC field, easily accessible on all of Apple’s devices, and TickleTrain goes to work. You’ll receive an email when there is some action or alert for you. That’s it. Powerful and simple.

How does it work?

how_tickle_trainLet’s explore how TickleTrain is used on your iPhone, iPad or Mac to follow-up on emails. After signing up for an account at Tickletrain.com, you’ll be provided with a “universal” Tickle that can be used on any email you choose. In Apple’s Mail app, just type its assigned email address in the BCC field before sending. TickleTrain uses a format like this for your Tickles: universal+yourname@tickletrain.com. TickleTrain will tag this email for follow up in three days if you don’t get a reply. You’ll receive an email notification (called “Today’s Tickles”) where you can preview the follow up email TickleTrain composed for you and send it with a single click. Nothing gets sent without your approval.

Customize your Tickles with whatever wording you want and use them over and over again for different contacts and subjects. Creating your own unique Tickles for different subjects is easy. Log into the TickleTrain website using Safari or Google’s Chrome browser and click Add Tickle. You will then be guided through setting up a Tickle. When you’re done, click Save and you’ll be provided with a new unique email address to use in the BCC field. You can have an unlimited number of Tickles each customized for the subject matter at hand. Then use them whenever the email subject matches. Common examples might be:

universal+yourname@tickletrain.com – follows up on anything

invoice+yourname@tickletrain.com – encourages payment for unpaid invoices

quote+yourname@tickletrain.com – follows-up on the quote or estimate you sent

14+universal+yourname@tickletrain.com – follows up in two weeks for you

The concept is something to get used to. But once you do, you’ll see how much more you can get done through Apple Mail and on the go. Plus, you might be surprised how following up builds better relationships. Your contacts instantly feel important by your personal attention to them – especially when no one else did! That’s why we call TickleTrain – “a money maker”.
