Does anyone else experience that sickening sense of dread when a ‘Manuscript Decision’ email appears in your inbox? Most may call me a pessimist, but I refute that Im simply a realist.

I wonder if this app would come in handy? Apparently it can ‘learn’ how to tell a good message apart from a bad one, and colour code accordingly, so you can anticipate the nature of a message before actually reading it. The intention behind this design was to ‘help manage stress’, but there are some obvious counter-points to that argument – one of which includes the potential for a lot of un-read emails from managing editors.
