MailTime is a popular email client that seeks to make emailing as easy and smooth as messaging. The app has been immensely popular on the iOS operating system, with apple even naming it one of the App Store’s Best of 2015, but Android users have sadly been left out in the cold. That is, until now.
Since the app launched in 2014, it has accrued a substantial userbase with over a million downloads. It’s compatible with every major email service, is free to download and use, and kind of blurs the lines between emailing and instant messaging. What makes the app attractive is that it’s platform agnostic. Whereas most messaging services require both users to be on the same app, MailTime uses email protocol so that you can reach just about anybody in your addressbook and be sure that communication can go through. MailTime trims away all that unnecessary metadata and displays sent and received emails in bubbles, just like Messenger messages.
Although many are decrying email as dead or dying, MailTime is looking to stand in the gap and revitalize a potentially useful method of communication by making it sleeker and less clumsy. It can support multiple accounts, and reply-all style emails are treated much like multi-user instant messages. All in all, it seems like an app worth a spin, and since there’s no cost, there’s no harm in trying it out and seeing if this minimalist approach to email works for you.
