Email’s the essential private messaging tool that’s been with us since the earliest days of the internet, but sometimes it can be so frustrating. Most email apps are inflexible, with dated interfaces you can’t tweak. That’s what’s so nice about Airmail, our sponsor this week.

Airmail’s the new email app that’s gotten everyone’s attention this year, and for good reason. It combines the simplicity of a modern Mac email app with the customization you’ll love, so your email app can work just like you want. You can pick from 8 different message styles, so your email inbox is as full-featured or minimal as you’d like. There’s options for a modern or classic window style, and three composer window views. Then, you can tweak font sizes, badges, and language, so everything in Airmail looks and works the way you’d expect.

Airmail

Airmail also includes a ton of extra features so it’ll work with the services you want. It’ll check your email no matter what service you use, and includes IMAP, POP3, and even Exchange support. It can automatically upload your email attachments through Dropbox, Google Drive, Droplr, CloudApp, or your own server, and can archive emails to Evernote so you can easily find them later.

Get Your Copy of Airmail Today!

There’s no reason to start the new year with your old email app, when you can get your own copy of Airmail from the App Store for just $1.99! So why wait? Go get your own copy of Airmail, and see what everyone’s been talking about. It’s a fresh new email app that’ll look and work the way you want, so your email experience won’t be so annoying in 2014.

You can even mirror multiple devices at the same time to show off multiple apps, or differences between two versions. And if your company happens to run on PCs, you’re still in luck: there’s Reflector for PC as well that’ll give you the same great features.

Email’s the original way to privately message online, and it’s still the way most of us communicate with our colleagues online. It works, but it can be overwhelming and take up far more time than is necessary.

Ever since Google bought out Sparrow, we’ve been hoping for a new best-in-class email app for the Mac. We listed the elusive .Mail as one of the main apps we hoped to see released in 2013, but alas, nothing has materialized to date.

That’s no reason for doom-and-gloom. Instead, there’s an updated Mail.app in OS X Mavericks, along with the just-released Unibox and Airmail 1.2. Plus, there’s a public beta of Mail Pilot for Mac coming soon. Here’s the latest email choices on the Mac, with enough options that almost everyone should find a mail app they like for now.

When the word “email” springs to mind, most people think of those Monday mornings spent gazing at an endless list of messages inside Microsoft Outlook, sifting through and sorting out the useful stuff from the spam, newsletters and other promotions that somehow always end up in our inboxes. Yep, it’s true — email really is an unnecessary evil.

We think we can live without it, yet we still check our inboxes several times a day, no matter where we are — and I’m no exception. I’m pretty much married to my iPhone — as we spend almost every second of the day together — and I feel lost and disconnected when I get that dreaded “circle of death”, the GPRS indicator, meaning I can hardly access anything online.

Yet I’m always a little sceptical when developers claim that they can reinvent email. Allow me to explain why.

It was a fateful Thursday late last July when Sparrow announced they’d been bought out by Google. The indie email app that’d taken the Mac by storm, Sparrow was a fast favorite of anyone who wanted a more modern email experience — one that was fast, minimalist, and integrated with cloud services. It hit all the right spots, soared in popularity, then nearly as quickly was taken from us. Sparrow still works, but it’s a zombie without much, if any, of a future.

The Sparrow-shaped gap on the App Store has yet to be filled. There’s tons of promises of new email apps, but few have made it onto the scene yet — at least on the Mac. There’s the old standby alternates like Outlook and Postbox, but they don’t replace the minimalist approach to email that Sparrow embraced. The iPhone can claim Mailbox, Triage, and numerous other new email apps, but on the Mac, most Sparrow fans have stuck with the aging app, while others have taken a look back at Apple’s admittedly nice Mail.app.

That’s changed this week, though, as Airmail was released to the App Store. We’d taken a look at it months back when it was still in beta, but now that it’s fully released, can it replace Sparrow for diehard fans?

After Sparrow dropped its steady development, many users included a new item to their wish lists: a replacement to the dear mail client. The spotlight was turned onto projects that pledge to revolutionize the way we work through our inbox, using existing apps or brand-new apps. However, revolutions take time.

Airmail is a mail client that retains the simplicity which made Sparrow such a appreciated application. Because, sometimes stripping a resource to the bone is the real shake-up we need.
