Airmail for iPhone

by Novak Bozovic15/03/2016
Even though our iPhones are equipped with a default Mail client, many of us look for an alternative iOS e-mail app. For me, the default Mail app is very basic and simple, and so I always look for something more powerful since I see myself as a power user.

During the last couple of months, I have been using Microsoft’s Outlook which managed to bring a simple UI design in combination with complex functionality. However, this doesn’t mean that I should stop searching.

In fact, I am very happy that I kept checking out iOS e-mail clients on the App Store, since this is how I saw the newest version of Airmail. I was immediately stunned as I have been using Airmail on my Mac for a couple of years now. In case you’re like me, you must be interested in how this iOS app looks and feels like, so continue reading this article.

When it comes to the UI design, I am happy to say that Airmail for iOS is somewhat similar to the Mac version in terms of the overall aesthetics. Airmail’s design is very simple and clean, but also fully customizable so you can find numerous ways using which you can redesign the interface.

This app is known for handling multiple e-mail addresses, and it does a good job of color-coding different items so you exactly know from which inbox a message came from. All in all, the app looks and feels better than the default iOS Mail app and it managed to pack a lot of features without getting overcrowded.

Upon the initial launch, you will see that Airmail support accounts that are associated with Google, iCloud, Exchange, Yahoo, and Outlook. In addition, you can enter any IMAP and POP3 account, as expected. There’s no limit on how many accounts you can add, and you change the default icon for each account and tweak their own sets of settings, which is pretty advanced when it comes to iOS apps.

Just like Airmail for OSX, this iOS application comes with an overwhelming number of useful options and tools.

For example, it lets you snooze messages, add filters, and integrate third-party applications, in addition to customizing the interface, rearranging the menus, and applying different sounds to different accounts.

Those of you who are power users will be happy to know that you can integrate a number of services that work seamlessly with Airmail. Some of these are: Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive, as well as services like Droplr, OmniFocus, and Fantastical. Take a look at the official website for the full list.

Airmail requires iOS 9, which is something to keep in mind if you plan on purchasing the app. In case you own an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, you can take the advantage of 3D Touch for view messages, as well as snooze, reply, or trash them. In case you also own an Apple Watch, the good news is that you can view and read your inbox from this wrist-worn iOS device.

Bottom line

If you are looking for an iOS e-mail client that is packed with great and useful features and you’re not afraid to dive in, our strong recommendation is to take a look at Airmail. This will be a purchase you surely won’t regret. App Store Link
