While most Android users prefer sticking to the Gmail app for their email needs, there are users like me who wish to use a sexy app with features that Gmail probably doesn’t support. There aren’t many email clients available for Android users except the stock one which is pretty basic, K9 mail and Dextr which are usable but don’t support many features. Evomail is a new app that has been launched in the Play Store two days back and is really clean and neat. It also supports gestures, snoozing emails and offer push notifications too. I’ve had my hands on the app yesterday. Though I would prefer it to Gmail, it still needs some improvements. More on this after the break.
Evomail was initially available as a Gmail client for the iPad. As the app started supporting other services for iOS users, it is now available for Android users too with some amazing features that you might not find in any other email client on Android. Evomail for Android supports Gmail, Yahoo Mail, iCloud, AOL Mail, GMX, Fastmail, Yandex and other IMAP email accounts. Exchange and POP3 support is coming in the next few weeks.
Upon initial launch, you are guided through a tutorial that explains all features of the app. Gesture notifications is something that attracts me towards the app. Swipe right to archive a message or swipe left to delete a message. It also lets you snooze messages so you don’t miss an email when you are back to office after a holiday.
The interface of the app is pretty clean and looks much better when the contact pictures are displayed in small circles – something like you can see in Google+ profile pictures or Facebook Chat heads.
Sometimes you may face issues while new emails are synced, it might also be slower at times. This is something I experienced while running the app on an AOSP ROM for Xperia U. Apart from this, I don’t seem to find any issues with the app. Personally, we would rate it 3.5/5 which is quite close to the 3.4 on Play Store. Get this free app for your Android from the link below.
