It has been five years since AOL has launched their email app and it arguably doesn’t make into splash till the late of 2015, precisely until when the mobile app hit the scene. As the time passed, the AOL Mail team that built the app had added some more features and the Alto was updated over its lifespan that can include the Slack and the Amazon Alexa integrations, and built-in calendar, and there is a list to view of all of your details like photo and all the remaining attachments.
This looks like it has got a lot of features and it is true. However, there is another significance apart from the features that is has got. Let us talk about the design. The app was designed in a way that anyone can access and still powerful enough to remember about the tinkerers who like to play around with their email apps.

Unfortunately for fans, they will not get to tinker with Alto much longer. As previously mentioned, the app can no longer be downloaded from the Google Play Store and no new accounts can be created starting November 9. Starting December 10, the Alto team will discontinue support for the app.
There is some good news, however. In the announcement, the Alto team mentioned it will “be shifting its focus to something new and exciting.” Alto may have been shut down because the team behind it is trying to gel with Oath, but at least there will be something around the corner.
What that something is, we do not yet know, though I’m excited to find out.
It’s hard to be expected to remember a random string of numbers and characters, and especially whether or not they’re uppercase or lowercase. However, unless you store your passwords in a password manager, this is exactly what you have to do in order to access your online accounts.
If you haven’t used your AIM Mail account in a long time or if you’ve simply misplaced your password, you can use their built-in form to reset the password.
This works no matter where you use your account, be it through their website or via an email client or mobile app.
Tip: You might consider changing your AIM/AOL password to something easier to remember if you find that you’re resetting it often.
