Mail Pilot: Discovery Edition Might Be My New Email Replacement App
I had been looking for a great email app for years when I found Newton (formally CloudMagic). It was a nifty mail app that did a lot of extra stuff, and then even more when they changed the name and switched to a subscription-based payment system. But I didn’t care about that. It was all about the user experiment. It a gorgeous app, which matter to me since I would have the loop at a dozen times a day. This year they shut down the service. The app still works but there won’t be any updates going forward which will impact my workflow when Apple periodically updates Mac OS X. So I’ve once again been sampling all the current mail apps out there as a replacement. There have been a half dozen of them that I think are pretty good, but always seem to have at least one thing that doesn’t work for me.
Mail Pilot 3 was on of those apps that missed the mark. But it looks like the team is working on the next version they’ve codenamed Mail Pilot: Discovery Edition. And after watching the promo video, I might’ve found my next mail app. It sucks that it’s yet another email subscription service. A lot of the so-called premium functionality is not needed. I just need something slick and easy to use to navigate through my day. Still, I’m getting the pre-order pricing to see what the hell is up with this app.
