    Inbox by Google

    Next generation inbox

    Kate53Head of Social @ GitHub Β· Written
    I love the UI of Inbox by Google and they make it so easy to achieve the fabled #inboxzero by offering "save for later" / "done" and then other classic options like folders or trash. Also, once you do hit Inbox Zero, you get a beautiful congratulatory message lauding your achievement! I'm all about the positive reinforcement 😍

    The way it shows your emails as todos makes it compelling enough to work your way to reach inbox zero.
    • 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.

      ItΒ΄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.

    Spark for Mac

    Beautiful and intelligent email app

    Complete and very powerful

      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)!

    I still miss Mailbox app to this day - R.I.P! Polymail has been a great replacement. The ability to reschedule messages is key for inbox zero and even for proper follow-up.

      Polymail picked up where Mailbox left us hanging. Implementing all the best features like "Read Later" scheduling and swipe actions β€” 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. πŸ™

      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.

    Unroll.Me for iOS

    Unsubscribe from emails with a single swipe

    Unroll.Me is a solid complement to a lot of the email clients listed here (though I'm biased!)
    • Unroll is awesome - I’m getting so many subscribed emails and don’t have the time to say NO to those mailing lists. Unroll.Me iOS was installed and does it automatically for me, so healthy and efficient!

    To stay at inbox zero, I either quickly respond, delete, or schedule the work. The first two you can do in any email app. To schedule the work, I use Todoist. You can easily forward emails into the service, or use the Outlook Plugin to make tasks on the spot. Leaves me with nothing in the inbox, and I don't forget things.

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

      Organize your life with pleasure. Add due date to tasks, tasks inside projects, subprojects and subtasks. Call your friends to join your project and assign tasks for them. Comment and add images on tasks. Have your tasks everywhere with nice apps. Love it.
