A key element in the mobile office is to check and send emails, although all the cellphones and tablets have a built-in email app, but most of them are not that satisfying for the poor interface and features. That’s why I compile this list, the apps I recommend here can make you forget those built-in email app.
If I compile an email apps list but miss this one, I believe I will be named as a fool or a fraud. Sparrow was a popular email app on Mac platform at the very early time, then it released the iOS version and become an iOS star app soon.
In Sparrow, any content, I meaning including texts and images, will be auto adjusted to suit your screen size perfectly, you will feel like tweeting on Twitter when you check and send emails. When you read an email, most options will hide in the bottom right-hand button. It enlarges the reading area by this way and offers you a better reading experience.
Sparrow was officially purchased by Google in July 2012, then it released a new version which supports POP3 protocol which was not supported in previous versions, users can add accounts from Hotmail, Yahoo and other POP3 email services, and the pity is it still doesn’t push notification.
As Sparrow doesn’t offer an Android version, if you are not a Gmail user (as I think Gmail app is the first choice for Gmail users) and want to find a handy email app for your Yahoo or Hotmail accounts, Aqua mail will be your pick.
It has a perfect support for POP3 protocol, no mention IMAP and SMTP, and it has integrated with Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Gmail and many others in default. For most of the popular email services, it can synchronize drafts, sent, and deleted messages and push notifications.
You can use the Lite version freely, but in exchange it is limited to two accounts and adds an advertisement signature to all outgoing messages. $5 will be charged if you want to break these limitations.
This is a free app on Android, the highlight of this app is it supports voice mail, hand-writing mail and even video mail. And it also supports send emoj images, location and card to your friends. If you like, you can even add some decorations, tricky elements and bubble texts. (Looks like this app is more suitable for non-business usage.)
Aico Mail supports multi-accounts management and you can easily switch account among them, it provides you a powerful management feature, including current contacts, people you may know and the black list, you can also check the history emails upon a contact name.
There are many other third-party email apps on the market, but most of them are not free app (I’ve already recommend the best of them in this list: Sparrow for iOS and Aqua email for Android), therefore I am not going to recommend you more paid apps. And there are few free third-party email apps enable you manage multi-accounts in one app, so I only mention Aico Mail.
In fact, many official email apps like Hotmail app, Yahoo Mail app and Gmail app are all pretty handy. So if you need not to switch from several accounts from different email services, the official app will always be your choice.
