4 best Android email apps

Email is one of the oldest forms of internet communication and one of the few from “the good old days” that we still use today. Email has evolved quite a bit since the old days but how we use and process emails has changed very little. Despite that, some still seem to be able to do it better than others. In this roundup, we’ll take a look at the best Android email apps.
Email is one of the oldest forms of internet communication and one of the few from “the good old days” that...

1. AOSP Email

  The good old AOSP Email is first on our list because it’s a classic and has been around since the earliest days of Android. Of course, it’s been updated, refined, and redesigned multiple times since it was first created and that’s why it’s one of the best on the list. It supports pretty much all of the most popular email clients and has a clean design that is easy to use. It is important to keep in mind that this is a very basic email client. If you need something more feature rich and powerful, this is not the one you should be using.

2. Aqua Mail

  Aqua Mail is an email client with a little bit more power and a lot of peripheral features. It allows for Exchange and IMAP accounts but also allows integration with Office 365, OAUTH2 for Gmail, and it has support for Tasker and Light Flow along with a number of other apps. It’s been updated with a fresh Material Design look that helps keep it with the times in terms of design. The pro version allows you to set up more than two email accounts and removes the promo signature from outgoing emails.

3. Blue Mail

  Blue Mail is another simple but elegant email solution that supports a metric ton of email accounts including Yahoo, Gmail, iCloud, Office365, and others. It has a simple interface similar to AOSP Email with a few unique tweaks here and there. Along with the standard features, you can also do a bunch of other things like set quiet hours for when you don’t want notifications, set emails to send at a later time or date, configurable menus, and a lot more. There are even some security features like locking up your personal emails.

4. CloudMagic

  CloudMagic burst into the scene a little more recently than others. It has some Material Design elements but remains fairly minimal and that helps it feel more efficient and useful. It supports multiple accounts from a number of email providers and all of the standard features. Its most unique feature is the integration of various tools like Todoist, Asana, MailChimp, Pocket, Evernote, and others to help include your emails more fluidly in your workflow which is really useful. It recently updated with a new subscription model that wants $60/year for a few additional features but the free version should suffice for most.
