Since I bought my first smart phone (and that was more than a decade ago), I’ve been looking for a reliable but simple, and at the same time, handsome email app. My criteria were and still are strickt, and there haven’t been many email apps that could make me say wow!
Taking the risk of getting a nerd label, I’ll tell you one more thing -I’m using a few different email apps parallelly, both on Android and iOS devices in desperate pursuit of finding the best one that will fit my needs and taste.
I don’t know about you, but on a daily basis I handle almost a hundred emails on my phone. It is the number of emails that I read, forward, reply to, or create in one day. To be honest with you, some emails hit the trash can of course, but you’ve got my point.
A few weeks ago I was surprised with a request to review Mail Wise, an email app that I’ve been using for almost two and a half months on LG G2 (by the way it is still a damn good Android phone).
The best Mail Wise feature is a simple and intuitive user interface in combination with visual appearance. With Kit Kat it looked really good, but once I updated it to Lolipop 5.0.2 it became even better.
From the visual point of view, it would be really nice to have the night mode: dark background with white characters. It will make reading much easier at night.
As it is expected, Mail Wise works with most popular email providers: Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo mail, Outlook, Gmail, AOL, Live, MSN, Hotmail and you can connect it with your exchange mail server, of course, using IMAP and ActiveSync.
The biggest disadvantage of Mail Wise email app is the lack of possibility to use POP3 servers. But I really do hope that the developer will add this option soon.
Probably the most valuable feature is security. It is a pure exchange client side email app with all data stored locally on a user’s device. This means that your important data can’t “leak” from the mail server because Mail Wise doesn’t have a server!
Email Exchange + by Mail Wise is a vise choice no matter if you are a power user with a bunch of emails to handle daily, or you just want to connect all your accounts in one app. Also I’ll encourage the developer to keep improving Mail Wise for Android and I’m looking forward to its iOS version.
