Cloudmagic used to be my email client on iOS. But with the introduction of Newton it became a paid service. Since there are free alternatives I decided to switch. My new favourite is Spark.
What I want
My list of requirements is short but specific:
- Support for IMAP, iCloud and GMail
- Integration with Evernote
- Free or one-time-purchase
Setup was simple. Spark recognised my (dutch) provider and only needed my email address and password. Integration with 1Password made entering the credentials a no-brainer.
The integration with Evernote is great. Just grant access via the Evernote App and now you can swipe an email to Evernote. Swipe actions are customisable.
The interface needs some getting used to and I’m not sure if I’ll ever use the quick reply feature.
In my quest I noticed Boxer. Swipe actions just like Spark. Paid app usually mean great support but setup of IMAP failed miserably.
Outlook is praised everywhere. The integration is limited to Calendar events for Evernote reminders. So no chocolate.
