Hate email? You’re not alone. But there is a better way. Jeffrey Mincey runs through a list of alternative email apps and settles on one that is free.
First, a list of requirements. Spam. Sync email accounts from Mac to iPhone to iPad. Fewer features that are seldom used (stationery and templates). Less clutter in the toolbar comes to mind, too.
Which email app gets the nod?
Spark. It’s free for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Watch. Among all email apps for Apple’s devices, Spark is the easiest to set up, easiest to use, most comfortable, most efficient, and with the lowest learning curve. If you use Mail on your Mac to capture spam, Spark remains mostly spam free. Yet, it is smart enough to give you access to IMAP email account folders, and accounts sync seamlessly between Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
I use it, too. Free is good but no email app is more usable on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Still waiting for that other shoe to drop, though.
