The Corrlinks service, through which people communicate conveniently via email with inmates in federal and some state prisons, can be accessed through internet-enabled mobile phones and smart-phones.
Two ways to use the www.corrlinks.com service on a mobile device
There are two ways to use the Corrlinks service on a mobile device, namely:
- Through a browser: here, you use the Corrlinks service just the way you’d have used it on a desktop computer or a laptop – only that this time, you access Corrlinks on an Internet-enabled mobile phone or smart-phone. You see, many modern mobile phones have browsers such as Mozilla, Safari and Opera Mini. So you launch the browser program, just as you would launch it on a laptop or on a desktop computer. Then you enter the Corrlinks URL (www.corrlinks.com). Then, once the website loads, you log in if you are a returning user, or create a new account if you are a new user of the service. Once you have an account, or once you are logged in, you can proceed to use the service in the way you desire.
- Through the Corrlinks app: the Corrlinks app is designed for the Android operating system, meaning that you need an Android-based smart-phone to use it. You obtain the said Corrlinks app from the Google Play store. You then need to upgrade your Corrlinks account to a paid premier account (if yours is not already a premier account) in order to be able to use the App. Once you download the Corrlinks app the first time, you install it on your smart-phone and start using it to communicate with incarcerated family members or friends. Apparently, a Corrlinks app for use on the iOS-based iPhone has also become available.
Procedure for using the www.corrlinks.com on a mobile device
As said above, the procedure for using the Corrlinks service on a mobile device depends on whether you are accessing it through a browser or through the Corrlinks app.
If you are accessing the Corrlinks service through a browser, you need to access the Corrlinks website, and then log in, to either send or receive messages.
If you are accessing the Corrlinks service through the Corrlinks app, you need to launch the app, which will instantly give you access to your account (as, in this case, there is no need for logging in). With the Corrlinks app, many of the tasks that are slightly hard to perform on a mobile browser are made easy. But as we said, you need a premier account to use the app. Thankfully, the premier account costs a negligible amount of money: just $6 per month (at the time we went to press), working to 50 cents per month. So it shouldn’t really be something to bar you from using the Corrlinks App, if you want to tap into the convenience brought about by the app.
