E-mail has been relatively the same for years, even with the advent of new devices that we use to check e-mail with. Mailbox made strides last year, and there have been many similar apps following the triage techniques to reach inbox zero. It’s a nice start, and now there’s Acompli, which is a new e-mail client that is designed for professionals, first and foremost. Most of the others are more personal solutions, but Acompli supports Microsoft Exchange, and Gmail, but its biggest accomplishment is powerful all in one functionality.
Rather than just e-mail, Acompli connects directly to your calendar, contacts, and attachments. It’s quite impressive when you first launch the app to have tabs for other apps that you normally have to switch to. The calendar integration is so powerful that you can compose a new message, and directly open the option to create an invite, simply send your availability, or add a location. It’s so much easier to compose meetings, and before you send a message, you can access important people based on your e-mail history. Acompli also has a great way of managing attachments with a single files tab to view at once, or to include in new messages. There’s also the familiar swipe controls in the inbox to either archive, or delete messages.
Acompli (Free, iPhone) offers an outstanding all in one package that brings the power back to your inbox on iPhone.
