Send email to the Spark client to access Android
Spark has managed to attract one million users on iOS and macOS over the years. But every time I wrote on Spark, I received a lot of comments asking when the app would be available on Android. The answer is today.
Spark is an email client developed by Readdle, the company behind many popular productivity apps, such as PDF Expert, Scanner Pro, Calendars 5 and Documents. With e-mail, the company is facing a much larger sector dominated by giants, such as Gmail and Microsoft Outlook.
That’s why Spark focuses on functionality, customization, and collaboration. The app is available for free and you can optionally pay to unlock other collaborative features.
Since Google Inbox is closing this week, the timing of the release is perfect. If you like smart email clients, they can automatically order your mailbox based on multiple criteria, then Spark can meet your needs.
Start with smart notifications. You can let Spark ignore irrelevant emails and warn you about important threads. Similarly, the Smart Inbox view puts less important newsletters and emails in different categories so you can focus on the important things.
When working with a single thread, you can post-process them, schedule emails to send at a later time and date, set reminders, and more. Many of these operations are now available in the main email client, so it’s important to understand that you can find the same functionality in Spark.
Spark also turns your inbox into a collaborative experience with the team, such as Front. You can assign threads to other team members, comment emails and @- to your colleagues. You can also write a draft as you would in Google Docs. Advanced features cost $6.39 per user per month.
Some features are not yet available on Android. The company is working on quick responses, email templates, team email delegation, calendar views, and third-party application integration.
