You’d think that as common as email is, it would already be perfected by now. But for most users, email has a lot of pain points.
If you’re searching for a better way to use email on all your devices, Newton Mail may be for you. Let’s see how the team behind it has built a better email client.
Meet Newton Mail
Let’s look at some of Newton’s top features to introduce you.
Full Sync and Device Support
An email client isn’t much good if it doesn’t work on all your devices. Thankfully, Newton delivers in this. It’s available on all the platforms you use: iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, and Windows.
Newton supports many popular mail clients, including Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, Office 365, and iCloud. If you use another email service, you can connect it via IMAP.
No matter your device or email provider, you can expect a reliable email experience with fast push notifications.
Built-In Read Receipts
Read receipts help you keep track of whether recipients actually read what you sent. With Newton, read receipts are built into every message. You’ll see two gray ticks turn blue once your message was read.
Even better, you can turn on notifications for important emails and get a ping when the recipient reads your message. This helps you make sure no important message goes unread.
Have you ever received an email and knew nothing about the person who sent it? You can always Google their name, but that requires opening a separate window and takes time. Newton streamlines this by adding a profile to everyone who sends you a message.
Just click on the user’s contact photo, and you’ll see their job title, social profiles, and some basic information about them. Flip the card to see information about their organization. This lets you know whom you’re talking to without hunting anything down.
True Inbox and Tidy Inbox
Ever since conversation style became standard in email, there hasn’t been much of a reason to open your Sent folder. The only exception to this was finding an email you sent to someone that hadn’t received a response yet.
Newton Mail kills off the Sent folder with True Inbox. This creates a new conversation in your inbox as soon as you send a message. It’s front and center until the person replies, helping you to remember it.
Tidy Inbox is a smart feature that weeds out unimportant emails like newsletters. Once enabled, such emails go into a new Low Priority folder, keeping your inbox open for important messages only. You can always move messages between these folders to show Newton what’s important to you.
Even More Newton Mail Features
Newton Mail has additional features that make it worth trying out. It connects with your favorite productivity apps, like Evernote, Trello, and more, for exporting email tasks. Snoozing lets you deal with an email later, or the next time you’re on your desktop.
Meanwhile, scheduled messages help your messages arrive at the right time, and undo send prevents embarrassing mistakes. If your current email app is lackluster, Newton could be just what you’re looking for—more than 40,000 subscribers think so.
Try Newton free for 14 days on all devices. It’s just $49.99 per year after that, or $4.99/month if you don’t want to commit to a year. That gets you a smooth email service with a slick interface, plenty of smart features, and no nonsense.
