    Spark by Readdle

    Fast, smart and beautiful email client for iOS

    ArjunFounder, Techulus · Written
    I've having been using Spark for past several months at work and my personal system. It is fast, and gets things done. I like its clean UI and minimalist approach. The smart inbox feature is also worth noting, which will surely improve over time.

    Awesome app - simple, yet powerful. I've tried other apps, but they are just too full of clutter. Spark lets me just work with my email without getting bogged down with trying to find the reply button ;)

    Inbox by Google

    Next generation inbox

    If you use gmail, Inbox is the way to go. I have been using it since there early beta and I have not looked back sense. It effortlessly organizes your inbox into categories based on what you read and when, as well as sorting you trips based on the itinerary. Along with Reminders and a Todo list, it is truly a wonderful email experience.

    I feel like I've tried them all and Inbox just works.

    • 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.

    Astro

    AI meets email for Mac, iOS and Android

    Lucas GrohnProgram Manager | Re/Max NW · Written
    Astro is currently the best email client out there for Gmail (and I believe 365) accounts. They are still in Beta and are near full featured. It allows to send later, snooze and set reminders. In addition to being a great standard client, it has built in AI that is only getting better as the days progress. It helps you quickly find action items in your email, set appointments and decide what is important. If you have macOS or iOS try it out.

    Beside what Lucas said, Astro also has an Android app, which is nice.

      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.

    • Anders S. MortensenDesigner, copenhagen

      Just switched to this email client both on my Mac and my iPhone. I'm very impressed with how easy this is to use without too many bells and whistles.

      I don't use the calendar though as I only use iCloud Calendar and not the calendar attached to my gmail.

    Newton by CloudMagic

    Supercharged emailing with space-age features

    I've tried many different kinds of email apps, and no matter what, Newton always ends up being the better one in the end. It has a subscription payment model, but I think it's worth it for an email client that is simple and just works.

    I've used many of the newer clients and this is the one I keep going back to for its simplicity. Very clean interface, but the bells & whistles are there if you need them.

    Despite the price, Newton is an awesome software. Clean and simple, the applications are great, and features like adding a mail to Trello are godlike.

    Spark for Mac

    Beautiful and intelligent email app

    Colin HardyFounder of Snagaprint · Written
    Simple, elegant design and they are constantly coming out with great new features. Smart Inbox saves so much time by sifting through personal and work emails, as well as newsletters.

      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)!

    Microsoft Outlook for iOS

    Official Microsoft Outlook app designed for iPhone and iPad

    I might get some backlash for this one but for me I like all the manual rules I can create because I'm an organization freak. Also looking for a tool that turns incoming emails to lead management...so until I find that I will be using excel and rules with Outlook :)

    Notion

    Artificial intelligence-powered email.

    Now called Trove, I think. This app rocks! Uses AI to determine what emails are important to you and UI offers a nice contrast between important and others. Can swipe to archive multiple emails at a time, it really is as satisfying as you think

    • Chad WhitakerProduct Designer at Product Hunt 👋

      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.

    • Kevin LouFounder, Anytable 🍜

      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.
