📱 Use two fingers to quickly select multiple items in apps like Mail, Messages, and more
When viewing a list of chats in Messages, or emails in Mail, you can swipe up or down on the list with two fingers to start selecting multiple items. It’s a killer way to triage things.
It works in some third-party apps too, but support is varied in my experience. Apps like Airmail
and Keep It
support it, while Drafts
, and Bear
do not. Also, Apple’s own Reminders doesn’t support it.
Where it is supported, though, apps offer useful management tools. In Messages, for example, you can delete all selected chats at once, or just mark them as read. In Airmail you can reply, delete, archive, and its Actions menu is available for even more power.
