    No Cloudmagic?

      I’ve tested almost all of the iOS mail app including CloudMagic. The UI is clean and it works great on iPhone and iPad but it’s missing quite a few essentials features in my opinion such as:

      – no landscape view on iPhone
      – no snooze feature (coming soon according to developer), would love to see snooze to desktop
      – save e-mail as PDF
      – attach multiple cloud attachments in one go (e.g. PDF from Dropbox)
      – save to cloud storage (only possible with iOS Share Sheet)
      – customizable swipe gestures
      – short/long swipe
      – no advanced search like Spark has (e.g. “Jim attachment PDF November”)
      – can’t find e-mails older then 3 months
      – lack of task/action for e-mails
      – no calendar within the app
      – not much options to personalise
      – one tap reply
      – no option to show icon/avatar in inbox (only in conversation)
      – no Slide Over/Split View on iPad

      I’m hoping that there will be an app one day that has all the features i want :)

      For now Outlook, Spark, Airmail come pretty close. I love it that Outlook shows the attachments above the e-mail message. I hope that Spark and Airmail will also add that soon + iPad support (both have alpha/beta version now) including Slide Over/Split View support.

  • So which one do you use? I’ve used about half of those and prefer outlook so far.
