  • Pros: 

    Great design

    Cons: 

    No Background Refresh

    Sync is a pain (3-8 minutes to get email notifications)

    Update is amazing but please focus in reliability, background refresh on iOS app and sync issues. I open some tickets on the past months sending debug trying to get issues fixed but still there.

    Pros: 

    Fast, fluid, easy, solid, reliable, has personality

    Cons: 

    I don't embrace the bot as much as i should, so that's on me

    I've been using Astro on and off for about a year now. I use it on mobile far more than desktop. It has all the standard features you'd expect out of a modern email app (snoozing, follow-ups, etc). I mainly like it because it nudges better behavior in my emails. The "would you like to make ___ a VIP?" is my most frequently used nudge, the daily roll-ups are informative, and the read receipts come in very handy. Overall I like that it has a distinct look and feel without compromising usability or reliability.

    Pros: 

    Multiple accounts, calendar addition is great, actionable unsubscribes, VIP contacts and a whole heap more.

    Cons: 

    none as yet

    I really like this as it makes me think that I am actually getting through emails and I am actively finding ways to reduce the bulk of things I don't look at anymore.

    Pros: 

    It helps me get through emails faster - and with fewer 'through the cracks' messages - than any other platform I've used.

    Cons: 

    Takes a little time to wrap your head around the bot.

    I've been using Astro for several months and am a convert. Updates nearly always improve functionality.

    And the 3.0 update with an integrated calendar is what I've been asking for since day one. Great job!!

    Pros: 

    AI, best in class UI and UX, calendar is awesome.

    Cons: 

    No IMAP support, only G Suite and Office 365.

    Having no support for IMAP basically disqualifies this app for me, as I use FastMail for all workplace needs. G Suite/Office aren't the only players, you know, despite being in majority.

  • Pros: 

    Great snoozing. Office365 Support. Desktop and Mobile clients

    Cons: 

    just small quibbles honestly

    I've been using Astro for months and I've found it to be the best email client I've ever used. It's fast. Search works well. I can use it on both my Office 365 corporate email and my personal email. The snoozing is easy and really helps in keeping a clean inbox and organized follow ups.

    Pros: 

    Great UX, Fast Speed, Easy Archive and Snooze Features

    Cons: 

    Astrobot doesn't do much for me

    I find the same challenge in Astrobot that I find in other bots. What's the point? Typically, it recommends to move people to VIP -- that doesn't do much for me.

    Great app, awesome for inbox zero.

  • Pros: 

    Undo Send, Send Later, post-to-Slack and Slack-search integration, the new Calendar/Agenda view is cool, too

    Cons: 

    None--it has feature parity with the built-in Mail.app

    I started using Astro on macOS and iOS as a Mail.app replacement this summer and after zapping my Inbox and staying on top of email with Snoozes, haven't looked back.

  • Pros: 

    +Awesome features, such as "zap", helps cleaning inbox.

    +Friendly support team, fast responses.

    +Great bot features.

    +Calendar support.

    Cons: 

    -Currently supports only Gmail and Office365. But i am sure that it will change.

    -Some bugs here and there. Sure that they will be fixed.

    Overall, a great email app, if not perfect. The Priority and Other inbox is great, works perfect. The use of an AI Bot for email organizing is good. It helped me save some time.

    Absolutely recommending.

  • Pros: 

    Well-designed UI, useful "Insights" feature

    Cons: 

    Crash when handling many accounts (Mac), no HTML signature (Mac), the AI is not significant for neat users that really manage their inbox

    If you are using many mail accounts (8) in Astro for Mac, you will notice that there always be lollipop loading icon whenever you switch account or get into all account. Sometimes I have to force quit because the app is not responding. There is no HTML signature which is very useful for business mail account. You are also forced to make your drag-and-drop image file as inline message rather than a separate file attachment. However, the open tracking is good. The UI is quite eye-candy (rather than a more efficient UI like Air*ail). The "Insights" feature is also somewhat helpful to notice sentences that contains question mark or to-do-ish.

    Pros: 

    Love the sifting to find my key emails

    Cons: 

    No iCloud support. After a year plus. Dealbreaker. It's on their map, but not of importance.

    I had to give up and switch apps. I really liked where this was going - but after a year and the "We'll support iCloud someday" over and over again...

  • Pros: 

    Awesome interface. Fluid and love the Astro bot. Best thing is the email snooze feature and priority inbox.

    Cons: 

    No Icloud integration yet, but I know its coming.

    Ditching PolyMail as soon as Icloud comes to Astro. They sync is SOOOOOOO much bettter in Astro.
