Popular email client Airmail has finally made the transition to the Apple iPhone after a lengthy beta testing period. The tool has only been running on the Mac so far. The company plans to extend its support to the iPad as well before long.
Airmail for iPhone offers the same set of features users of the desktop version are familiar with. The brand has supplemented these with new functions which make use of 3D Touch to peek-and-pop information right from the homescreen. Consumers can perform actions like writing a new message or searching for one by just long-pressing on the icon.
What sets Airmail apart from its competitors in the iOS ecosystem is the sheer number of customization options it offers. The app is a good choice for email power users who aren’t satisfied with the default Apple Mail app which all iPhones ship with. The latter can be cumbersome to use at times, with slow load speeds and limited third-party integration.
Not so with Airmail, which syncs with a number of tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Wunderlist, Todoist, Fantastical and Evernote. There’s also an option to snooze a message for later and create a VIP contact list which lets users limit the alerts they get to a chosen few. It even creates PDFs and allows for bulk editing.
Airmail further features support for iCloud sync, which means any preference which a consumer sets for their mailbox will be saved across all platforms. The company has also added the Apple Watch to the list of devices it works on. Owners of the smartwatch can view mails and get interactive push notifications.
Airmail is compatible with all iPhones running iOS 9 and above. The app is priced at $4.99 and can be downloaded now via iTunes.
