Apple has built Mail right into the iPhone, with universal inbox, multiple draft support, gesture actions, and more. Yet the App Store is home to many other mail apps as well, some focused on a particular service, others on workflows like "inbox zero". Which one you use depends as much on personality as feature set.
If you're still looking for a Mail app, check out the list we've compiled. And when you choose — or if you've already chosen — let us know which one you went with in the poll!
Microsoft's new Outlook app, based on Acompli, lets you not only manage your Office 365 mail, but Gmail, iCloud, and standard mail accounts as well. If you're all-in on Office, you'll want Outlook.
Mailbox, now owned by Dropbox, focuses on the "inbox zero" philosophy by letting you archive, delete, snooze, or file mail with just a gesture. Attachments can use your Dropbox storage to save on local space as well.
CloudMagic is based on smart cards that let you easily push mail out into Evernote, Pocket, Trello, OneNote, Salesforce, Asiana, Mail Chimp, and more. If super productivity and services integration are you think, CloudMagic might just be your thing.
Hop turns mail into something closer to messages. Instead of threads, you get conversations. You can even make groups and place calls with other Hop users. That makes Hop good for workgroups and the social set alike.
Triage does just what the name suggests — it presents your mail like a deck of cards and lets you rapidly swipe an email up to archive it and down to keep it. If all you want is to rapidly sort while on the go, Triage makes it super fast and easy.
If you're new to mail apps on the iPhone, one of the above apps should absolutely suit you well. Read them through, pick the ones that interest you, and tell us which one you end up liking the best. If you've already picked your preferred podcast app, let me know which one it is!
