So moving on to the Android section These are Android only email alternatives first option here is blue mail now I know a lot of people have been pointing me towards blue mail if you want my honest opinion I don’t really rank the design as something that I’d recommend to you guys It is an application is coming to desktop very soon It’s available currently on Android the application touts the ability to and all of your accounts. It has some really good sorting functions so for example you can actually see at the top a filter of what accounts you have and The different types of inboxes you have available now inside of the application you do have a calendar function as well as the ability to organize your contacts and emails into groups or Clusters so that it gives you the ability to almost chat with the people you are emailing with now the application Is free and is available to download on Android Next up on the Android solutions is aqua mail Now aqua mail has been getting a lot of sort of attention recently because it’s currently on discount But bets they heard the Newton news recently So the application is sort of touting towards being the most customizable Experience on Android for your email now we connects up with all of your email account and it does have a bit of us more Secure access.

Slightly during your email experience So the next up is k9 mail now KML is developed by someone called Jesse Vincent It is a free open-source application available for Android a lot of people sort of point it towards being the most advanced of The Android email applications out there and is also available in Amazon and f-droid Devices, it does allow you to connect up any I mark accounts that you do have and it’s really a secure way to D mail On Android now the final solution in the Android lineup is 9 now This is developed by nine folders, which is a company that also produce a couple of other work applications on Android No the application It does have inclusive in it a calendar a notes folder a task folder as well as your email as well so it’s almost like a Productivity hub to some extent now the license price for this one is 14.99 so do take that one into account.

The design is really attractive It’s free to use and you can connect it with all of the other accounts as well as create my mail comm Solutions or email addresses which makes it easier to process those emails mixed up is protonmail A lot of people would be mentioning this one. It’s a secure based email They’re actually based in Switzerland and they do state They have their data center actually secured very intensely also, they also state it’s under thousands of meters of rock solid rock apparently on their website now Prudhomme mail is Open source and it is encrypted. It’s very much the security solution that’s out there It’s available on iOS and also web 2 and Android as well so the next application is a bit of a weird one type mail type mail is Essentially an application very similar to blue mail It allows you to end all of your accounts and sort of process email in a really easy fashion So it’s almost like blue mail have doubled up their application and essentially put a new brand and name on it Which is quite strange, but it could be a good tactic in order to sort of dominate the email market So type mail is free, but it does have a plus version for corporate users that you can check out Although you do have to go for a contact form So next up is Edison mail Edison mail is an application that a lot of people using on iOS and Android It has got a really positive rating on both stores. He does have an Cisco I’m snooze as well as undo send and face ID security to the design of venison looks very similar to Outlook but it works really well and it does have a feature that sort of sets it out from the most which is assistant and a lot of people are enjoying that so next up is hop now hop, it really focuses more about Conversational real-time communication so it basically organizes your emails into contacts allowing you to communicate with them Individually, which is quite nice It’s very much media focus so you can send all types of stuff files gifts images and all sorts You’ve also got a calendar function as well as unsubscribe and the application touts an encryption Protected service as well and it is free to download on both iOS and Android so many of you guys may have known trove Now trove was previously named notion. I can’t see why they changed their name No trove is more of a business tool now but a previous used to be an AI focused email It is available to download on both iOS and Android and it’s really touted towards more business professionals Looking to know more about that contacts before it reaches their email. So it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a more Business focused email talking about business focused email and a security VM boxer which was previously known as boxer is a more of a security focused solution It does have a calendar solution as well as your regular inbox functions available on iOS and Android and this priced at $3 78 per device So if you want to install that on your sort of device, that’s a monthly fee going around for you Let’s dive into the desktop solutions now and then we’ll dive into the Mac specific solution the first of that group is post box now post box is available on Mac and PC and it does provide you with a fairly gorgeous experience now from some of the screenshots that I’ve seen the application does look very good colorful and very attractive to look at no the application does have some notable integrations like box Dropbox and also Onedrive – so it does have the ability to integrate HTML into email as well as create pre-canned response as well the integrations Include todoist all the way over to evernote and many more for postbox six you deem it You do need to have a license for the mac and windows version.

They seem good standout applications at the moment although I would point more towards spark because for example They’re backed by comfortable read or read also develop a whole host of applications And they seem to have some strong backing there so out of the Android solutions I would point towards nine Which is developed by nine folders mainly because it looks like a stronger application out of the iOS solutions I’d try out triage the email first aid Because it seems like a good application for sort of organizing star and from the iOS and Android solutions and recommend both Protonmail for security as well as Edison for their advanced and easy to use a system now from the desktop Solutions if your Windows lover I check out those postbox because they seem to have a good history and also male bird So guys there you have it the full notion lowdown So there you guys have it the full Newton lowdown?

  1. 🏠 This will serve as more of an official listicle to the Newton alternatives out there!
    Many apologies for the out-of-sync errors whilst speaking, sorry!
    — Francesco.

  2. Amazing list of alternatives. I look forward to watching the Serie of vidéos. I’ve been using Airmail but it can’t send large files. As a result, I’m back to the native application Mail. Mail is like a Swiss knife to me.
    On another note: BlueMail works on IOS…

  3. CanaryMail… another one for Mac users!

  4. Any Newton "alternative" email app must have Evernote integration. That was the beauty of Newton and the main reason I used Newton. Sure, we can just forward emails to Evernote, however, that can add some funky issues if you're forwarding emails that are part of a "conversation". Nothing worse than replying to a client email and having the response go to Evernote. Wheeeeee!

    Wish Spark would get off their butt and finally get an Android version released. They've been saying "coming soon!" for over 18 months.

  5. So basically no app which works on iOS, android, Mac and Windows with a single subscription cost, clean design and painless setup with read receipts, snooze, remind later etc like Newton had. Newton will be missed.

  6. this video made me sad.. i left dispatch (was not updated).. went to newton (died)… maybe ill revisit dispatch,,,I'm NOT liking spark; i don't want my inbox split into sections grr

  7. Trove just announced they were shutting down 🙁 I've moved to email by Edison for now, but I'm not sure….

  8. Shocked that you missed MissiveApp! It's the only truly ubiquitous mail app (Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, web, no linux but web, so…) by Philippe Lehoux @plehoux
    Very generous free level with Slack-like pricing for increased search history. Recently introduced SMS functionality as well. Team oriented app but I've been using successfully on my own for years.

  9. Hallo Francesco. The problem using a Gmail alternative is labels. In my opinion (if I am not wrong) the only one sw that support gmail label is VMware boxer. This is the huge problem for people like me. Your reviews are the best on web.

  10. Hello Francesco,

    Great alternatives out there. Thanks for sharing. I have one question. I like spark BUT I heard and read a lot of time about some issues with data privacy there. Any opinions?

  11. No app can replace Newton, just before subscribing to Polymail as alternative, I found Canary Mail.

  12. I've tried like 5 different ones and either hated UI or doesn't work with all of my emails (Gmail, outlook, Apple, yahoo)

  13. Nest email solution: no email 🙂 Email after all is a bit like fax till very recently : ubiquitous but pretty outdated and not very efficient.

  14. Newton provided ActiveSync in OS X. I can’t find anything else that does this, and it’s essential for me. I’m literally going to have to buy new hardware now Newton has gone 😳

  15. Great work, once again Francesco!! I guess with Polymail and Boomerang in there, you omitted Gmelius from the list, although not limited to email automation – more CRM and Shared inbox functionalities in there!

  16. What Mac/iOS client would you say has the best email tracking/receipt options? The $13 a month Polymail account will breakdown who opened what even on group emails. Any others?

  17. Thanks for the overview! Only one missing for Android is BlackBerry Hub+ which available to all android devices but comes pre-installed on BlackBerrys.

  18. Huge fan of Gmail, Spark, Polymail, Astro, Proton Mail, Trove, Apple Mail, and Unibox! I recommend Zoho Mail & Sudo.

  19. Thanks for the insightful video. I actually use Newton for a very specific reason. I have a decent amount of mail adresses (10+) and change devices almost on a daily basis. Newton is the only app, where I can just sign in ONCE and then have all my email available.
    Is there anything out there, where I can setup my accounts once, then log in with one account on every platform and have ALL my mails?
    I am totally lost without Newton.

  20. I just came by Tempo (www.yourtempo.co), and the design is really good and well thought out. It might miss some features for now (as it is in beta), but very promising. What do you think?

  21. Started to love Astro and then this: https://slackhq.com/slack-acquires-astro-to-help-email-and-channels-work-together
    Another one bites the dust!

  22. Mailspring is the closest I've found as far as functionality and workflow goes with the read pane off. Although it's still not a complete replacement and definitely not as smart, it's doing the trick until something better comes along. I spent a little time creating both light and dark themes that are inspired by Newton free for the taking at https://github.com/jpminor

  23. This was extremely well made and insightful. Highly recommended. Great job. It took great insight and talent to produce this! Five stars!

  24. Thanks for the video, but sadly it's very rushed (Despite the length) and does not explain why one app is better than other. You touch on very basic functionality in your list of features, not necessarily where each app is strong/weak.
    Regarding Android Apps :
    – K-9 does not work with exchange
    so it shouldn't even have been included.
    – AquaMail is very expensive for what you get
    , but probably most feature filled and customizable like you said, it's fast, but it's not completely bug-free. And full screen 15 second video ads? NO THANKS.
    – Where is Blackberry Hub+ Inbox? Shame, it's one of the best free apps.
    – Nine is amazing. $15 for one-time purchase, vs AquaMail yearly subscription.
