TouchMail is an email client for Microsoft Windows, launched on April 17, 2013 at the DEMO Mobile Conference in San Francisco.[1]

TouchMail was developed by a Seattle-based startup founded in 2012 by former Microsoft employees Matthew Carlson and Alex Frank as an e-mail client designed for touch input.[2][3] It runs on both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. The emails in the client can be color-coded with zoom out features to view more messages.[4] The application integrates work and social messaging using visual and touch capabilities of computing devices.
