What is the history and popularity of the app?

TinyLetter was created in 2010 as a way to help users create their own unique newsletters. Anyone can make a newsletter using a basic word processor and email. However this process can be very difficult. Users must learn how to format their newsletter properly and ensure that the format isn’t lost when it is sent via email. TinyLetter has taken all the frustration out of formatting and building a newsletter by giving the user an easy tool that does it all for them. The site still offers this basic service which can be invaluable to anyone who may be a novice computer user but has a need to send out newsletters to a group of subscribers.

What are the differences to other apps?

TinyLetter is unique for a few reasons. First, it gives users a very simple way to create and send a newsletter. It also makes it easy for the user to get subscribers by creating the subscribe link for them. All the user has to do is share the link and encourage others to subscribe through it. The user can also stop by TinyLetter anytime to build their next newsletter. Frequency and timing is entirely up to the user.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

TinyLetter offers a simple service which is complimented by the application’s website design. The TinyLetter homepage uses a lot of open space with no clutter to get in the user’s way. All the main navigation tools are presented as soon as the user arrives on the homepage. They can visit the TinyLetter website and get right down to business creating a subscribe link and building their first newsletter.

How does the registration process work?

Registering for TinyLetter is very easy. As soon as a new visitor arrives on the TinyLetter website, they are greeted by a large Pick a Username field. The user can enter their desired username, which will make up the last portion of their subscribe URL (seen just below the field). The subscribe URL updates as the user enters their username. They can then copy their subscribe URL before continuing. After clicking the red “continue” button, the user is asked for a full name, newsletter name, and newsletter description. The last half of the form asks for the user’s email address and a password.

What does it cost to use the application?

TinyLetter offers a basic service at a great price: free. Anyone can visit the website and create an account at no charge. Users are not charged for creating and sending email newsletters, either. The user can send as many or few as they like and never pay a dime for doing so. This works well because it is a basic service, although a very helpful one for anyone that wants to make a newsletter but knows little about building and formatting one.

Who would you recommend the application to?

TinyLetter is a very helpful tool for users who are not skilled in newsletter creation, but want to send one out. Small businesses and professionals can even use it as a way to reach out to clients that is cost effective. Since there are no charges for sending newsletters, anyone can afford TinyLetter.
