With iOS 8, Apple definitely made its native Mail app much more useful and better than ever by adding some decent features, but for those power users who like to get the most out of their inbox, the Mail app is still a far cry from other powerful third-party alternatives.
We take a look at 3 such awesome third-party mail apps that you can use to get the most out of your email on iPhone:
At first sight CloudMagic seems like a basic email client due to its clean and minimalist user interface, but inside there’re several powerful options that make it the best email management app in App Store. For example:

- Fast magical search allows you to search for emails faster than ever.

- Connects to a variety of cloud storage services to make file attachments easier. Google Drive, One Drive, cloud, Dropbox all are supported.
- Allows you to attach a reminder to any email in a super easy manner.
- A clever edit mode of app allows you to edit multiple email conversations together.
- You can easily archive or delete messages by swiping them from one side to another.
- And finally, protect your email with a passcode – best for protecting your email from others when you don’t have physical access to the device.
But the best part is this – it’s STILL FREE!
If you get a lot of emails and would like to keep your inbox “zero” then Mailbox is the app you should be using on your iPhone. This simple-yet-powerful email app has been designed solely for the purpose of keeping your inbox empty, and it does the job really well by making clever use of swipe functionality. Given below is a sneak peek of what you get when you use this app:
- Archive, delete or even snooze an email, all with the help of swipe functionality. Every single swiping style has been assigned a different function. When you snooze an email for a certain amount of time, it disappears from your inbox and then re-appears after the time has passed. Quite good for conversations that you’re not yet ready to archive but for now don’t want to see in the inbox either.
- It’s an app developed by Dropbox Inc., so needless to say that it has Dropbox integration as well. You can easily attach files from your Dropbox account to emails due to this functionality.
- Get the Mac app of Mailbox and see what a fluid email management experience both apps can provide you together.
Sadly, Mailbox works with Gmail and iCloud only. Support for other accounts may also be on the way, but so far there’s no word about it.
