Top 5 Best Email Apps For iPhone and iPad

Managing your emails is one of the most important things to do in this modern era. Unlike previously where most people preferred text messages to emails, now most people prefer emails to text messages.

One of the reasons most people have attributed to this change of taste in the form of sending text messages is the fact that emails can be accessed on different devices, provided you have an active internet connection. The same could not be said about text messages since they can only be accessed on the phone in which the sim card is inserted.

With that in mind, choosing the right email app on your iPhone and iPad will go a long way. Thankfully, there are a lot of alternatives on the App Store for you to choose from but not all of the so-called “email” apps are recommended, mainly due to security reasons.

In this guide, I am going to recommend to you the top 5 best email apps you should use on your iPhone or iPad, or both. Please note that these apps are not listed in any particular order.

1. Mail (Apple Mail) App

The Mail app is also known as the Apple Mail app is the default mail app on every Apple device, being it iPhone or iPad. Usually, all new iPhones and iPads come with the Mail app already installed on them.

Since this is the default mailing app on iPhones and iPads, it comes with a lot of amazing features and settings. Even though it is developed by Apple, you can add multiple accounts in the app, whether it is an Apple, Google, Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail, or your organizational email account.

Also featured in it are complete text formatting tools which help you to compose emails as if you were using your computer. You can add attachments with just a few clicks, use swipe gestures to mark, delete, or archive emails.
Additionally, you can mute emails from a particular sender or add certain email addresses as VIP and their emails will be sent as a priority notification. Interestingly, it is completely FREE.

2. Gmail: Email from Google

Gmail has one of (if not) the highest number of active users. As a result, it is no wonder a surprise that Gmail: Email from Google is the number one ranked productivity app on the Apple App Store.

Similar to the Mail app, you can add multiple accounts and switch between them whenever you wish to do so. After sending a wrong or unwanted message, you can quickly use the undo feature to unsend the email ASAP.

Also, if there is an email containing an event, there is an option for you to add it to your calendar so that you don’t miss out on your event. There is also a swipe gesture feature available for you to use as and when necessary.

There are also different languages available for you to choose from depending on your location and preference. Also, it is completely FREE.

3. Yahoo Mail

Yahoo is also one of the top email providers in the world. In the earlier days of email, most people were using Yahoo and most people still do till this day. As a result, the Yahoo Mail app is one of the best email apps available on the App Store for iPhones and iPads. Once you open the app, you are greeted with an elegant user interface which makes your emailing very fun.

Unlike the rest of the apps mentioned earlier, the Yahoo Mail app comes with 1TB  of free cloud storage for you to use for your emails and also to keep your data safe and sound.

Even though developed by Yahoo, you can add other email provider platforms like Apple, Gmail, Outlook, etc. The swipe gestures can also be customized to suit whatever you want them to be.

Although the Yahoo Mail app is free, you can also subscribe to the Yahoo Mail Pro which comes with other features for $0.99 per month.

4. Microsoft Outlook

The Microsoft Outlook app is similar to all these apps and at the same time has its own unique features. You are allowed to view all your emails and calendars in one place without installing or opening any calendar app.

There is also another feature for you to schedule emails to be sent at the time you set for it. Also, you can navigate through the files synced with OneDrive, Dropbox and easily attach them to your emails.

Several languages are available for you to choose from and it is completely FREE.

5. myMail

The last app on my list is the myMail app. Personally, myMail app is one of the best email apps I have used on an iPhone.

Apart from adding several accounts on the myMail app, there are tons of other settings and features available for you to choose from.

Head towards the settings pane to navigate through all the settings available. You can assign avatar and profile photos to each email account for easy identification when using the app and also, it is FREE.
