Readdle’s beloved Spark email app for iPhone and Apple Watch is also coming to the iPad and Mac. A spokesperson for the company confirmed that development is underway for the apps in an email to Cult of Mac. The iPad version will likely make its debut next month in December, while a Mac version is a little further down in the pipeline since it’s only currently in the planning stages.
The moment I downloaded Spark I fell in love with it because it’s the first email client I used that significantly weakened my hatred of going through my mail. Spark makes it brilliantly easy to organize and prioritize all the messages I get every day, so I was insanely excited to find out it’s on its way to iPad and Mac, even if the developers do need some more time.
Plenty of other savvy email clients exist, too. The Dropbox-acquired Mailbox has similar features to Spark, but it seems like development has stalled since July and reviews in the App Store have started tanking as a result. I wanted to love Mailbox, but bugs and a lack of Microsoft Exchange support steered me away. Microsoft’s Outlook app and Inbox by Gmail both attempt to combine day-to-day productivity features with your inbox too.
Though Spark created a fairly loyal fanbase, the Readdle team is better known for some of its other free apps: the portable scanner, Scanner Pro, and PDF Expert 5 in the iOS App Store.
