Why I switched to Newton Mail for Mac and iOS?

AppsOmar MoralesComment

Luckily for Mac and iOS user, we have great options when it comes to email clients. Starting with the native Mail app and other great options like Spark and my previous go to client Airmail.

I had been using Airmail for Mac since 2014 and Airmail for iOS since 2016. Before 2016 my iOS client was CloudMagic what today is called Newton Mail.

I was very happy with CloudMagic but it when from free to $25 a year. Now as Newton Mail it cost $49.99 a year.

So why I returned to CloudMagic (Newton Mail) now paying $50 a year?

Airmail is a very powerful app and it cost just $10 for Mac and $5 for iOS and those are one time purchases, unlike Newton Mail yearly recurring subscription.

The reason I decided to go back to Newton is that while Airmail is great it can be buggy at times especially on the sync front. And while the apps are clean they aren’t as clean and eye pleasing as Newton is.

Newton sync and supercharge features are also a must. The read receipt is better implemented than Airmail and Spark similar features.

The all account sync is also better, unlike Airmail I don’t need to input the password for each account when login in on a new device and unlike Airmail they also offer Android and Windows apps. I am not a user of neither but I am glad the option is there just in case.

Paying a subscription for a great app isn’t a big deal for me I like to support great apps and knowing how the developers are making their money is relieving. Unlike Spark, that is totally free but how they plan to profit from the app is a mystery. It could be gone in time or they could sell your data with free apps you never know. Or they could pull a CloudMagic and start charging after all.

So in short

So this are the reasons I decided to give Newton a one year try after testing it for free for 14 days.

  • Great design
    • Reliable fast sync
    • Multiplatform support
    • Fast customer support
    • Support the developers
    • Better implementation of read receipt and send later features
    • 14 days free trial

If you will like to try Newton free for 14 days click here for iOS or here for Mac it will give you a free trial off all the platforms clients.
