MailWise is an app that looks to provide you a one-stop shop for all of your email accounts and email app needs, and it does this really well. Let’s dive in.
MailWise: Inbox by Gmail meets basic Email app
One of the things I feel that the new Inbox by Gmail app lacks are some of the basic options you had from the AOSP Email app. It is also missing the ability to add other emails currently so that you can sort your all of your email. MailWise looks to provide a similar feel as Inbox by Gmail, actually more reminiscent of the Mailbox by Dropbox, but give it a few twists of its own, and allow all emails to be added.
Microsoft Exchange, Windows Live Hotmail, Gmail, Outlook, Aol, Yahoo!, are the accounts that it automatically accepts, however it even has an “other” option that will accept other emails you might have.
How this app is reminiscent to Inbox and Mailbox is the ability to take action on an email by swiping it in the list view. You can choose what action it takes when swiping to the left, but default is Archive. Swiping to the right reveals several options: Delete, Archive, Move to folder, Read/Unread toggle, and Star. Or, you can tap the “X” to close the menu. The only thing I wish this app had like Inbox and Mailbox is the ability to Snooze emails, however the Play Store description promises more features coming soon, so its possible this will be in a future update, and looking at the changelog in AppBrain, they update it often which is a good thing.
The other thing MailWise prides itself on is their conversation view of emails, which I must say is nice. Instead of displaying all of the info many people show in all of their emails such as business, position, contact info, logo, etc., MailWise only displays this in the very first email, and then cuts it out in all the other emails, and shrinks the message down in a compact, SMS-style message. This makes viewing past messages to look for information a breeze, and really helps cut down on the need for scrolling. Initially I thought it was a gimmick, but as I used the app I came to enjoy this feature.
The app is also filled with custom settings for you to choose from, including but not limited to sync frequency, avatar displaying or not, quick responses, Auto Bcc, and much more. Another great thing about this app is they include security for Exchange accounts, so the app is safe to use for your business. The app also has a nice design, and while it is not Material Design yet, I wouldn’t be surprised if that came soon.
Overall, this app looks good, works well, and is packed to the gills with settings for you to customize the app to your liking. On top of it all, it aims to help you keep your inbox compact and organized, and get through emails quickly without needing to open each one. For those looking for an app to have all your emails in one place, I highly recommend MailWise.
