Mailbox has been my main email app on my phone for a long time now. On my Mac, I typically use AirMail 2. Occasionally, I see a new email app that gets me interested. I’ve been playing around with two new apps that both look great.
Spark is a new free app by Readdle that is customizable and powerful. I used it for a few weeks and I really like it. It tries to reduce your notifications by only showing you what is important. You can also mass delete newsletters and other emails that aren’t important. Overall, it’s a great app, but after using it for a few weeks, I went back to Mailbox. The main problem I had with Spark is that is was slow at times. It just seemed a little buggy and I like the simplicity and speed of Mailbox. Here’s a video of Spark.
Mail Pilot 2
Mail Pilot 2 is a great app by Mindsense. They also have a new app for the Mac. Mail Pilot 2 for iOS is $5.99 and works on the iPad and iPhone. I am planning on trying it next. It turns your email into a task management system. I love the concept, and so far, I have really enjoyed using the beta version of Mail Pilot 2 for the Mac. Best of all, the company was founded by a couple of Virginia Tech students. This one has a good chance of replacing Mailbox on my phone.
I’m always playing around with new apps. I love seeing innovation in the user interface, and all the competition is making all iOS apps better. Leave me a comment and let me know 1) What do you use? and 2) Why do you like it?
