About Mailplane

There are huge benefits to using Gmail: threaded conversations, googling your inbox, labels, and regular new beta features. Equally, there are major advantages to using a desktop email app: offline access, easier attachments, Growl integration etc. Mailplane does an excellent job of merging all these benefits into one.

Our Review of Mailplane

If you’d like to find out more about Mailplane, our review is a great place to start. Here’s a quick summary of what we found:

Mailplane aims to integrate the functionality of Gmail with the convenience of a desktop application. Multiple account support is fantastic, along with the useful Growl integration. It does have a few features that are not quite as crucial, but that doesn’t detract from the value offered. If you’re a heavy Gmail user, Mailplane is certainly worth taking for a spin.
