- I use this because it has great apps on mobile and mac and also the accounts sync between the apps so you don't have to do it twice. It also sorts emails similar to what gmail does and i find that really cool. You also can schedule emails for later read.Spark has been great for me on iOS. I'll be honest, I use Airmail on desktop but on mobile Spark's performance and simplicity has kept me a user. I've never experienced any problems with snoozing, conversations etc. Plus, unlike Google Inbox, it supports pretty much any email account. I utilize Zoho for personal email so that is huge. Good luck!Found Spark after Polymail switched over to a less than enticing paid subscription model. Been super happy with Spark though! Its reliable, quick, and simple. It doesn't have any big heavy lifting features, but for free I don't think there's anything better right now. Spark if you're reading this! Find a way to integrate people's calendars into your App. I bet it would explode in popularity ;)
I've been using Spark since the very beginning. I was an original waitlist-starting user of Mailbox, and was excited to find spark almost immediately after Mailbox went extinct. This is the best email experience on every platform, and has a variety of productivity features that make it my go-to.
Ever since Mailbox became a graveyard app, I have been looking for a worthy replacement – and Spark is as close as it gets! The UI is clean, combining dark and light colors which helps with using the app; the side menu being dark while the rest of the UI has a white background makes you focus on the important stuff (the mail list and the mail in focus)!
- Just spent a couple of weeks testing Newton, Polymail, and Spark after a couple of years with Airmail. Sometimes you just want to test the waters. Airmail still remains the best for me and my routines. The others offer great features and nice looks, but I wasn't able to find a reason to switch in the end.Quick and responsive, Airmail is a well-designed email client for Mac. Comes out of the box with loads of integrations to other services you might use (Trello, OmniFocus, Google Drive and more). Supports GTD-type tagging of emails as to-do tasks too!
I've been actively searching for an email client that gave me a universal inbox for all my accounts. As a consultant, I regularly have 3+ client email addresses in addition to my main 3-- work, personal, business campaign funnel. I love the sleek design and ability to reach inbox zero. I already have a good email system, so those who dont actively use folders may not be as wowed as I was -- and still am. Looking forward to continued updates, bug fixes and app integrations.
- Lets me hold multiple email accounts, they add new features all the time, Can't imagine going back to anything elseBeen using Polymail. Beautiful UI, great features with the same lightweight, seamless interface that you should expect from a native email client. Email tracking, snooze, attachment tracking, contact profiles, send later, etc.
Polymail picked up where Mailbox left us hanging. Implementing all the best features like "Read Later" scheduling and swipe actions — all housed in a clean design.
Lately, I've noticed that Polymail is focusing more on biz dev and sales productivity with Polymail Pro. Understandable, with Sparrow and Mailbox being sold off and shut down. It's clear that email clients need to become profitable to survive. Unfortunately, I'm often pressured into features that I would never use via prompts and popups.
I have used Polymail for a couple of years now. I still notice a few small bugs around rendering emails, and the Read Later queue can break down if you have several threads saved. Still hoping these issues will be fixed soon. 🙏
Overall the app still functions great and is my daily email client.
I recently gave Polymail another try and it's indispensable now. Fast mailbox switching and read receipts are the killer features for me.
Love Polymail for the Mac, but the iOS app doesn't do it for me. When I'm on my phone, Inbox is my go-to.
- Great UI that keeps things clean and polished. Beautifully designed UX that lets you focus on your desired emails and gets rid of the clutter. It provides quick actions to really make managing your email a breeze. I really enjoy it, if you can't tell.Great product with great features (send later, read receipt, reminders, undo...), I love it!
Thanks to Newton, I enjoy reading and writing emails.
Checked it out ... got excited... realized it is dead.
- I love Astro. The features are intuitive to learn and the UI is really clean. It helps me keep the emails I need to worry about in focus and the emails that I don't out of focus. The reply tracking feature keeps me from forgetting to follow up on emails and the open tracking feature lets me know if someone has actually opened my email or not.I like the AI in this one, helps me declutter my inbox by unsubscribing to old newsletters that I don't read anymore, reminds me to send emails and lets me know when an important message arrives.
I've been a delighted user of Astro almost since launch. And now they have sold to Slack - and are immediately shutting down.
Can anyone recommend a good email/calendar client?
My mail client has to handle my personal as well as business mail. My life isn't neatly divided into work and non-work. All my personal mail is through my mac address. Not supporting that makes it worthless to me.
- Loop brings team messaging to your inbox so you and your team can share emails and quick messages in one place. Loop is a secure email desktop app that works with your Gmail, Outlook or any Office365 account. Install Loop, connect it with your existing inbox, create your sales, marketing, management or any other project teams and start messaging.😻😎
Love how I can triage messages and emails in the same inbox. The files tab for every channel is a gem. Looping in a team is so powerful when I need help with my responses to clients. The bot is still under construction but he's getting some cool skills soon!
Loving the fact I can have one place to check my emails and messages. Obviously with this there are some advanced features still not there, but I can live with this given I now only have one place to search for all my stuff
- Inbox is great - it's easy to sort out what matters from promotional junk mail while still making everything easily accessible. It brings all of the great features from GMail, along with extra features (delivery tracking, reminders, snoozing, special ways to see your subscriptions, etc).
I pretty much like all things Google, but Inbox just isn't for me. I much prefer good old fashioned Gmail on my iPhone. The way Inbox sorts my emails doesn't always make sense to me, and I suppose I'd rather sort it myself. There are definitely better email apps out there. I know because I've tried a bunch of them.
I like & hate inbox for the same features.
It´s the first time my Mailbox feels sorted and clean. That said Inbox dicards eamils as unimportant, doesn't show notifications for all emails and shows how much it knows about my friends, travel agrangements and so on.
I do think a manual hosted version would be really great but I doubt we will see something soon.
In the end its a Google Product which means no updates and in 2 years we get the next version of it. It lacks a lot of things you can't do with it. For instance multiple Accounts, S/MIME encryption and ways to highlight a lot more.
- Excellent for those working with a large number of email accounts.Handles multiple email accounts very well, and gives great performance at the same time !
- That is a fantastic program. I started working much faster. Everything you need at your fingertips. Thanks!)
Using it for music, Google Translate, and recently started using web version of Skype through Firework (because desktop version started munching on CPU and RAM all of a sudden).
Updates keep coming, they really listen to user requests. App is stable now, im satisfied with it.
Overall I like it.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do something about the ADS in website.
Make it block the ads in website. sample I use it to watch series in some shady website that has ads all over the place.
I know problem is mostly in me but the adblock part will be really great.
I've been happily using Astro till yesterday since they announced they sold the company to Slack and were going to shut down all service by October. I've previously used other clients such as Nylas or Polimail but wasn't convinced about paying a monthly fee for an email client service. I'm happy to pay a one off fee for such a product so Canary has resonated well with me. It seems to work like a charm and offers every possible feature a email client can have.
I have been using this for more than 2 weeks
To be honest, I don't get excited about email clients. I don't even like email, truth be told, but I like email a whole lot more than I like talking on the phone. I have multiple Gmail accounts for my various websites. Having to use Gmail in a web browser is painful, sloppy, and cumbersome. What I like most about Shift is the ability to just hide the window when I don't want email in my face, but I can easily switch to it when needed.
Switching between accounts is super easy and nicely organized (tabs). As far as the Gmail UI, once you are in the mail client it is identical. My guess is that Shift is built using the Node-Webkit framework so it is technically just a web browser with some nice bells and whistles in an enclosed environment. But that is not only fine, it's perfect. Why reinvent the wheel?
Shift is basically a much better UX wrapper for Gmail than Google currently makes available. It is such a simple idea but it is excellently implemented.
After using the free version for a bit I upgraded to Pro to help support quality work and for a few extra benefits & features.
Money well spent, IMHO.
I've used this product on and off for a year. Apart from the constant bugs, the overall experience of the product is pretty decent. However, they lost me when they added that awful " Sent with shift " signature in my signature with no chance of removing it.
- I've tried several of the others mentioned above (like Nylas and Spark) but I keep coming back to Mailplane because it's so easy to use. It's essentially a wrapper around the google interface + some goodies like unread counts in dock / menu bar + native bindings. There's another similar app out there called Kiwi for Gmail, does about the same, I don't know what differs them.
- It's reliable, supports multiple accounts from any provider, and comes with rich tooling on information protection, calendaring and tasks. Updates frequently and supports integration with Office365. Been using it as the only mail client on my Mac and couldn't be happier.
- I'm a Postbox user for years and this has been the best desktop client I've used thus far. You can create smart mailboxes, customized signatures based off of provided templates, open inboxes in tabs, and install plugins that allow you to extend Postbox's functionality, like attaching Dropbox or Box files to your messages.
- As a heavy user of Google Inbox, I prefer using a standalone inbox client instead of a browser tab for my emails. Wavebox does a really great job for that. Plus Wavebox also allows you to include Google Drive, Outlook or any other web apps you use a lot right into the Wavebox app.
- I love Fluid. I am able to make apps out of my various email provider accounts. It's really handy. The only downside is that Im having trouble incorporating LastPass to function within the app, so sometimes I have to add the login/pass manually. But its GREAT for websites you visit on the reg.
I always return to Fluid - recently, I tried to find a suitable Twitter Mac Client and in the end, nothing was better than a Fluid shell.
I use it for FB Messenger, as Goofy had many problems. Medium, Bandcamp & Instagram work too.
This used to be one of my most used apps, still is to some extent, I use it for some web apps. But very unfortunately the dev abandoned it. Although the website says nothing of the fact, I think just one update was posted for the last couple of years and several emails with support questions / request remained ignored.
One college-student son said "I practically gave up the browser" when I put Kiwi on his Mac. The other said "not getting it." I use Kiwi constantly.
With a single Gmail account, it might not rock your world.
With multiple accounts, it's really a massive improvement.
