MailTones, by Electric Pocket, has received a nice little update. In case you are unfamiliar with the app it enables iPhones users the ability to change your email tone and set different tones for emails. The newest updated is bundled with 60 more tones raning from discrete bells to more audible horns and buzzers as well as an enhanced overall look and feel with full retina support.

MailTones has been a nice little application for people who want the option to filter their incoming emails. It allows you to set filters to change the priority of an email based on who it was sent from. So for example you can set your boss or your spouse to a higher priority so as soon as the email hits you will get a notification with their special alert you chose and you can respond right away. If you set the filter to make someone less of a priority you know you can wait and get back with them at your earliest convenience. You can also set tones based on domain or by contacts. This would be handy for the professional users who want an easy way to tell if an email has come from someone in their office.

MailTones uses Apple’s Push Notification Service, and offers simple set-up from Gmail, MobileMe and any server which supports "forward a copy" forwarding of email. Costs $3.99.
