A few months ago, a new email client hit the App Store that just about turned the iOS community upside-down. Mailbox was being touted as a “revolutionary email app” that changes the way you use email. The app looked great, but within a week, I was back to my native iPad Mail app.
I’m just not the kind of person who needs help organizing thousands of emails. I’m pretty good at deleting and archiving my messages. Mailbox is a great app, but not a game changer for me.
Today, a new email client has hit the App Store that may just be what I’m looking for. Evomail is an email client for the iPad that is specifically designed for Gmail users. It offers some of the great features that Gmail’s Web-based service offers, but are not available with Apple’s native Mail app.
For example, Evomail lets you perform a full search of all of your email conversations so that, if you forgot to write down an address, you can easily find it using the search function.
You can share email conversations directly to Facebook or Twitter. If you just got an email saying you’ve been given an award for your outstanding performance at this year’s Shakespeare in the Park, you can tweet it in a matter of seconds without having to type a single word.
Evomail features built-in push notifications so that you can immediately receive an alert when you get a new email. You can also view an entire Gmail conversation thread instead of only the most recent messages.
Evomail costs $2.99 and is only available for the iPad. It is also only available for Gmail users. However, the developers are working on expanding support later.
