How Do I Configure the App Icon Counter (badge)? Getting to know our Intelligent Counter

The App Icon Counter (badge) gives you a quick view of the number of Unread emails waiting for you within BlueMail.

In our latest version, we have completely redesigned the Icon Counter’s functionality and now feature an Intelligent Counter, which allows the App Icon Counter to automatically clear its value every time the app is opened and your account is visited. We think you are going to love this added ability.

Does BlueMail Support Displaying a Badge for My Device?

The ability to present a badge on the App Icon is actually dependent on the home screen manager or “launcher” of your device. We do support the badge for the native launchers of many devices, as well as various 3rd-party launchers.

If your device is not supported, please check Alternatives to Unread Count Badge on the App Icon.
