If you still use the stock iOS Mail app for your emailing, you’re actually missing out on a lot. Push notifications, fast search, battery savings, ease of use – the Mail app disappoints in many aspects. It’s high time you migrate to a smarter emailing experience. Here are five reasons why you should consider CloudMagic as an alternative to iOS Mail for your iPhone and iPad:
1. Instant push notifications for all types of email
Push on iOS Mail is unreliable. It doesn’t support push for Gmail, Google Apps, Exchange IMAP and many other IMAP accounts. CloudMagic gives you instant push notifications for all your accounts. Doesn’t matter which email service you use, CloudMagic uses the power of the cloud to deliver reliable push notifications.
2. CloudMagic is easier on your battery
Most email apps poll constantly and therefore consume a lot of battery. iOS Mail app is no exception. CloudMagic on other hand, goes easy on your battery and data. Emails are pushed from the cloud instead of constant polling. Here is a comparison of battery usage:
(We used a new iPhone 6 running iOS 8.1, added the same number of accounts to both iOS Mail and CloudMagic)
Over a period of 24 hours, CloudMagic consumed 35% less battery than the stock iOS Mail app.
3. Manage attachments better with CloudMagic
With CloudMagic, you can attach files from popular storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive and more. You can even save attachments to Box, Dropbox and Google Drive, without leaving your email.
4. Save important emails to your favorite productivity apps
CloudMagic allows you to add important emails to other apps. For example, you can add tasks to Wunderlist, important notes to Evernote, interesting links to Pocket, all using the save email to option. The native Mail app on iOS is quite insular in this matter.
5. Overall user experience
Not only is CloudMagic easy on the eyes, it’s also backed up by great support. We believe that support is a big part of the overall user experience and we take pride in delivering kickass support. Everyone at CloudMagic, including the CEO, handles support. Here’s the kind of love we’ve been getting.
