The native Mail app significantly improved its features in 2022, with a new design and the incorporation of many features to try to be a benchmark regarding email management on Apple devices, with the aim of becoming an alternative to Spark , the best existing messaging app in the App Store. However, with the new version of Spark , once again Mail has fallen behind. Let’s see what are the new features that make Spark the best email manager today.
Spark, the app that every user should have
It is an application that has been in the App Store for many years, awarded with several awards and is available on major operating systems such as macOS, iOS and iPadOS. This email manager came out in 2015 and since then, there have been many users who use the application every day. Let’s see some news that this application has.
Multiple accounts and Quick Replies
In a highly connected world, having several email accounts is the order of the day, where you can have personal email, work email and emails for certain issues . Best of all, you can move from one email to another quickly, without having to leave one account to travel to another.
Many confirmation emails or emails require quick responses that in many cases you can have predetermined text messages prepared to save time. In this sense, Spark has this option through templates that makes users respond to their recipients quickly.
Grouping of emails and folders
One of its great benefits is the possibility of grouping email by subject , and with a single glance you can see which emails need to be read and responded to quickly and which files do not have a high priority. In addition, you can also group emails by sender, in case you want to read several conversations quickly.
Along with the display of emails, you can move them to folders or pin them to always have them in an easily accessible position. In this sense, if you have several folders such as “projects”, “invoices”, “company emails” you can group them all in one folder to facilitate their search and classification. In this way, you can quickly know where you have all the files, because important emails are on the front line and those related to work, structured in folders.
User preview and productivity tools
The new version of Spark allows you to receive on the first line the new emails that have come to you from people who might be unknown or advertising emails. In this sense, you can accept or block access to this email without accessing it with a single click to prevent the entry of files that could damage the device.
All of the above is added to the possibility of adding the fact marking options, which allows you to move the completed email to an archive folder, set aside the email to work with it later, leaving it marked or the possibility of actions and keyboard shortcuts that make the Spark experience by far the best on the market.
Is Spark better than Mail?
Despite Mail’s attempts to become an alternative to Spark, its advantages, along with its free nature and integration with macOS, iOS and iPadOS, mean that many steps are still missing to narrow a gap that, although it is true, has been reduced. with the latest update. Finally, note that Spark has a paid option for companies with premium features, however, for personal email, the free version is more than enough.
