It's logical to assume that not everyone uses their computer to check your email campaigns. But why just assume? You should get to know exactly what type of devices your subscribers use to browse their emails and see all the cool campaigns you send their way! Our super flexible Moosend Editor makes sure your campaign always looks the part, under any circumstance, and in any device.
