Setting up basic email for your App Inventor App

So I have been going crazy the past week or two with trying to figure out how to setup the ability to send a emails from your phone. Well I found the perfect solution to my problem. There is a basic email template available if you visit Pura Vida Apps website. Try it out ,its awesome! I used the “Tony’s email starter template”. Thanks Pura Vida! Here is the website link:

I made my own simplified version If you want to take a look.
