Get that morning newscast on the shower radio.
Geoffrey Weg- Betaworks, TechStars, White House

Been using this after my Polymail trial expired. Love the simplicity and simple AI features (You haven't been opening emails from , should I auto-archive and mark future messages as read.?) Best alternative if you are looking for Mail Tracking, Scheduling and some intelligence, the Priority inbox is A+ too
Ruben Garcia- Solutions Engineer @ Dropbox
I've used tons of tons of email clients over the years and Astro quickly became my preferred choice. It's smart, efficient, well developed and the team behind it are super active and responsive to feedback.

Tried Polymail, Newton, Spark, Airmail and some others. When Astro came along, I stuck with it. They still don’t support IMAP and may lack some other fancy features, but the current featureset (priority box, snoozing, tracking, follow up reminders, inline answering etc) is well executed and reliable.
TechCrunch
On the surface, Astro, launching its public beta today, is a nifty but not completely necessary email client that combines machine intelligence and a bot interface to improve workflows and increase the signal to noise ratio of mail for power users.
The Verge
Do you want a chatbot to help you manage email overload? That's the question that Astro has to answer now that it's officially launching on iOS and the Mac. It's the simplest, quickest way to describe what Astro offers today. And when you put it that way, the answer is almost surely "no."

Today, your Uber driver can locate you faster and more accurately than 9-1-1 can. Our 9-1-1 system, created in the time of landlines, is woefully antiquated. You're not nearly as well protected as you may think. In most cases, when you call 9-1-1, your mobile GPS location is not transmitted (Don't believe me?
