Hi guys, Thank you all for the interest and comments. We've spent the last 2.5 years working on Spark in order to change the email experience for people with a busy inbox. Readdle has a proven track record of creating amazing productivity apps that are used by 50 million people (Scanner Pro, PDF Expert, Calendars, Documents), but it was the time to take on a bigger challenge and solve bigger problems in tech. That's why Spark was born. So what is Spark? Spark is an intelligent email client that shows you what's important in your inbox. It bubbles emails from real people to the top, and allows you to take batch actions on your newsletters and notifications. We created it for people who live by their inbox and who want to have an amazing experience with email. Here's how Spark intelligently helps you: - Smart Inbox lets you quickly see what’s important and batch archive the noise - Natural language search (i.e. search “email from Alex last week with a PDF”) - Beautiful and minimalist design - Amazing Calendar invite cards (this alone is a killer feature. See your schedule while accepting the invite) - Quick Replies with emotions - Smart notifications will only notify you about important emails (you can also teach Spark) If that's not enough to make you switch: - Spark supports Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro - It will sync all your settings and snoozes across all your Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac) - iOS App was named one of “Best of the App Store 2015” by Apple. - Spark for Mac is now "Editors' Choice" on the Mac App Store The Business Model: Spark 2.0 is already in the works and will be geared towards Team collaboration around email. Spark will remain free for personal use, but we will charge the teams on recurring basis. Here's the story behind Spark and why we created it: https://readdle.com/blog/2016/11... I hope to hear your thoughts and feedback. Please remember that this is version 1.0.

@denzhadanov Love it! Keep up the great work over there at Readdle. Just installed Spark on both my Macs. 😉
@denzhadanov Been a long time user on iOS and a beta user on the Mac. Brilliant app. I wake up to only relevant emails now. Sleep has improved. Needed that. Thank you!
@denzhadanov Great job guys! I have been using Spark on iPhone for a while and liked it a lot. Already installed on my Mac and happy so far :)
@denzhadanov I really enjoy it so far! I have been using Newton for a while and Sparks interface is much more compelling with multiple mailboxes. I think you should consider integrating mail tracking/scheduling :)

@denzhadanov would love to be able to set a default font (even better a default font stack so it matches my signature).
The app is free, so what is the business model? How do you plan to sustain development?

@wokalski my concern exactly.. it looks good but I'd like to know if it's here to stay :)
@wokalski Same question here! We've seen to many email apps disappears
@wokalski All the other apps from Readdle are paid. They make money from the companion productivity apps (Scanner & PDF Expert are must haves!)
@wokalski Found this comment on another post on /r/mac: General Statistical Information "When you use the Spark app we gather statistics and analytics on your usage of Spark. We may collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including the application-specific device identifier, IP address, operating system, browser type, mobile network information, location, installed email, etc. This information is collectively referred to as "General Statistical Information". This data helps us to determine how different parts of the Spark app are used. This information is used by us to provide you with the best user experience possible. We use third party services, such as Google Analytics, Facebook Analytics and Amplitude, to collect and analyze how you use Spark. These services may collect information about you and your usage of Spark in accordance with their respective privacy policies." So even if you're trying to keep your data away from Google and Facebook they'll get it any way. I'm not sure if anyone is aware of that but Spark downloads all your emails to their servers. They mention about that in their policy. If anyone regrets signing up for Spark and is worried about your emails being stored on their servers, try this https://sparkmailapp.com/account...

@neurohacked Thanks. I think this prevents many people, myself included, from using this app.
I am usually not sad because I am a PC. But today....

@kkdub I'm actually making the switch back to PC today, and I'm less excited about it now :X
@bauermetal Hope the move went well. It can be rough. Apply liberal amounts of high end beer/liquor/hot chocolate/pizza/ice cream as your preference & as needed. I assume you did so last night (good preparation is the key to success).
@kkdub I would really recommend checking out Hop email. It's free, easy to use, and works on top of your existing email and just enhances it's capabilities
Spark vs Airmail. Begin.

@a12rj @tomflemming The quality of Polymail app is terrible IMO. I've been a user for few months now. Unstable and very buggy

@tomflemming airmail is extremely messy to me, ditched it on iOS for easilydo (beta version) and on Mac ditched it for spark.
@shtooova I'm curious to how it has it been messy for you? Just the way it organize's your email? Or was it crashing a lot? I throughly enjoy Airmail and it's stable for me, but maybe I'm missing something.
@zacattac no I'm talking about the aesthetic. Everything else I love!
Looking cool. Is there PGP support?
