No Control Over Default Font 4/5
I love this app. My main, and perhaps my only complaint is that I can not change the default font or size for all of my emails. It's such a basic thing that keeps this app from being 5 stars for me.
Best e-mail replacement I have found 5/5
I have been a Mac user since about 2011/2012. I have tried other programs for Mac's Mail replacement but nothing AT ALL compares to Spark. I just found Spark in 2020, and do not see myself going back to Mail. It integrates all my accounts perfectly, interface is similar to what I am used to, simple to download, set up and use. Love it
Love this app 5/5
I periodically check in with other email apps, but always come back to Spark. It is excellent, but would be even better if it worked with Grammarly.
GREAT!!! Email CLient... waited too long to switch 5/5
I've wanted to move away from Apple Mail for years, but just couldn't pull the trigger. I kicked the tires on Spark (among other email clients) several times over the years, but for whatever reason, just couldn't make the change.
I waited way too long to switch! Spark's what I've been looking for!
Spark is AMAZING…except when it’s not 5/5
Spark is an absolute joy to use—it sorts incoming emails for you, gives you different view options so you can hide work-related emails after hours, and lets you save templates for common responses. 90% of the time, Spark is amazing. This is one of those rare free apps that I would gladly pay $60 for.
Having said that, here’s what could be improved:
- I use an alternative keyboard layout called Dvorak, and none of Spark’s keyboard shortcuts work
- Every few months, I get a notification from Spark asking me to review the app—which is a small price to pay for a free app, but I would much rather pay a one-time fee to invest in Spark and then have a premium-feeling app
- The search function is bad at intelligently finding the data you are searching for and is unable to access attachments such as PDFs
great email, calendar needs work 4/5
love the email app, works on any device (except a pc, but I'm a mac user); the only downside is the calendar does not fully sync with my work server. It pulls down all info from the server but cannot send calendar info TO the server, so I have to create calendar meets on my mac calendar which has no sync problems - would prefer that it's all in one place rather than bouncing back and forth between apps
Solid App 4/5
Clean UI, Responsive. It just updates or loads too long sometimes, code could be streamlined and faster I think. Animations tightned up also. Still the best email client for me however.
very very Good 5/5
I love it，use it everyday. my friends love it.
Best for android/mac hybrid users 5/5
If you don't want to be caught up in an ecosystem with Apple, Microsoft or Google - use this. My favorite feature is you can pin important messages to the top like a todo item and also the snooze button to recieve mail at a later date if it's important but you are in the middle of something and don't want to forget
Ease of use 5/5
Great email platform. The most innovative feature is being able to comment on an email without the comments being attached to the email. And my favorite feature is how easy they have made templates and scheduling out emails. Great job keep up the work.
Love it 5/5
Save a lot of my time. The filter is awesome. Make my inbox clean and nice
Outstanding, now make it for Windows please 5/5
I enjoy this app very much. I find it easier to use than all the other email programs out there. I only miss that funtionality in windows. I truly hope they get this app running for windows very soon.
Best email client for Mac/iOS 5/5
I have used pretty much every emali client released for Mac machines over the last 20 years, and this is the best one right now. Works great on my Mac and my iPad and iPhone devices, puliing emails from several different types of accounts, Gmail, Zoho, MXRoute and iCloud. It also has solid integration with my task app of choice 2DO. Highly recommended!
Best Email App Ever 5/5
UPDATE: It's been quite a while since I last reviewed the app. Readdle keeps updating this app and making it better and better. Thanks!
I've literally tried about every email client (paid or free) that works on macOS and iOS.
Spark is hands down the best cross platform email app. All the swipe gestures work wonderfully. My favorite feature is Snoozing emails until later.
I'd easily pay $50 per year for this service, but ... it's free!
I've tried them all 5/5
By Erwin Dink
Spark is, hands down, the best email client for Mac, especially if you have to use gmail.
Best email client ever. 5/5
No words can describe how amazing this email client is. Kudos to all of the developers. You will not regret downloading this app. Life changing.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart <3
My very best Mail App
The best email app ever, light and efficient. 5/5
The best email app ever!
Best email client 5/5
i have tried working with others, spark is the best, with great features!
The Best Email Client Around 5/5
Spark has literly changed my life. The smart sorting in the inbox is second to none and I have never run in to a problem with it. I love how fast and easy it is go through hundereds of emails in minuets. The tag line is love your email again and this has done it for me.
Best for Mac 4/5
By ernst r.
Spark is a great email client and I use Gmail. I actually use three clients; Spark, Mail and Gmail. Spark is the default and I mostly use Spark. If I need sorting by sender I use Mail and if I need to do some more complex search, I use Gmail. Apart from that it is all Spark. With better sorting and search I would not need to use anything else than Spark.
Best app ever! 5/5
By Pablo Villarreal
This is might-years ahead of anything else.
Simple and Straightforward 5/5
Great email client! So simple to add email accounts. No clutter. Easy to read. Easy to organize.
Love the color-coding!
Great Mail App 4/5
I like it very much and it really helps me get to Zero Inbox on 7 email accounts I handle with it.
I would like very much it had a Spam filter, which it doesn't even if it has an option to send to Spam... it only sends the one you are at that moment, or those you have multiple-selected.... but it doens't create a rule, so if the very next minut another email from the same source reaches you, it goes directlyt to yout inbox instead of a Spam folder. That would give this app a 5 stars
One Glitch 4/5
By 24me james
I LOVE Spark! Customization anease-of-use are top on my list. However, when I swipe to delete one email, the one immdiately following it is automatically moved to the "read" portion of my Smart Inbox. It makes keeping track of what I've actually read unnecessarily confusing.
Great for Mac 5/5
I sync 6 mailboxes on Spark - along with 6 calendars and never have a problem. LONG time mac user and Spark is BY FAR the best email platform I've ever encountered. Started using Spark in 2017 and haven't looked back.
Just what I need 5/5
I've used several email 'aggregators' and I've been most pleased with this one.
unable to attach files 4/5
since getting thie most recent update (as of 11/16 I can't attach files either with the clip icon or with the file menu. I have to drag and drop. Other than that I love using Spark.
Perfect Email App! 5/5
Love everything about this app and the feature rich software. Now, they just need to update the app icon for Big Sur!
Best email software I've ever used 5/5
And it keeps getting better and better.
5/5! SPark is the best all in 1 mail app I have used. 5/5
I have tried a few different mail apps before, but spark is hands down the easiest and smartest. It's smart sorting feature comes in handy more often thatn you think, and it's ability to connect with the other readdle apps seamlessly makes it a great took for work and personal needs simultaniously.
Definately give spark a try if you are looking for a good mail app!
Favorite email client in years 5/5
By Ian Lurie
Spark has exactly the tools I need: Works offline, manages multiple accounts, integrates with Bear. Love it.
Still Has Multiple Incompatibilities with Big Sur 2/5
Spark has released updates since the release of Big Sur this week, and during the beta period too I believe, but Spark still isn't functioning correctly on Big Sur.
- Many times it's impossible to toggle the sender/account search bar. Once the in-email search bar is enabled on the right side of the main window, the main-account search bar which sits atop the list of emails cannot be selected, even from the menu.
- With an email, though it's possible to click the folder icon to move the email into a folder, it's not actually possible to select any of the folders. It just doesn't work. The cursor highlights them, but clicking does nothing. The only workaround has been to use the Touchbar on my MacBook (or Spark on iOS), but this doesn't help on my iMac.
So: minus a star for each of these issues. During the Big Sur beta these issues were understandable and tolerable, but now they're just wildly inconvenient.
However, they also tie into a more subtle, but more pervasive, trouble I've experienced with Spark which is coming to a head for me: Spark is an oddly un-Mac-like app. It almost follows macOS UI/UX rules, but then it deviates just enough to be foreign, even uncomfortable. PDF Expert feels way better in terms of macOS UX.
I've honestly been aching to return to Apple's native Mail app, but Snooze has spoiled me. YET, Snooze is another feature that would often break down, vomiting snoozed emails back into the inbox in spite of them being scheduled out into the future. I never got around to taking a star off for that, because 20% of the time it makes a mess of my workflow which I have to do all over again, but 80% of the time it works, so I just dealt with it. -1 star
Personally, I'm feeling tempted to surrender that 80% success rate 2 still-broken features for a 100% native and functional mail app that feels good, looks good, and works well…
- Fix Search
- Fix Folder selection
- Fix Snooze for good
- Make Spark more like macOS
I love you Readdle — Documents on iOS is a powerhouse I couldn't do without and I've rooted for you for years. And I want to love Spark … but I just can't anymore.
Not to mention how we have to hand over the encrypted log-in data of our email accounts to your private servers just to use this app. If I took that into account, would any stars remain for Spark?
This free program has more options than subscription emai apps.
Just the right balance for solo business owner 5/5
Spark hits a nice balance with a stronger toolset while still keeping a more intuitive and pared-down interface. For my small business this mail app hits the sweet spot for the functionality I want.
The only major app still not updated after Big Sur 2/5
I'd be willing to pay for Spark if I was able to have comprehensive updates on a consistent basis for the mac.
Big Sur Issues 3/5
The top bar is blocked after updating to Big Sur when in full screen mode. This makes it not possible to access functions like search. Please fix ASAP!
great app with 1 exception 4/5
really really find this app so useful. the only thing I would love to see is a better search function. I still have to revert to apple mail when I need to search.
Very easy to use 5/5
THE best email app on apple's products
best email client i've used 5/5
didn't realize how much i needed the features of this app until i tried it. from scheduling emails to send out at a later date to the well organized smart inbox feature and more. amazing! definitely recommended.
Needs Big Sur update 3/5
The app needs a big sur update. The top bar is obscured in full screen mode and the search box has become in active. Critical fixes needed.
love it 5/5
Best email App 5/5
I have tried several of the plenty email clients on the market at this time and I thank every day for Spark and can't wait for it to get to Windows to use it cross-platform.
The only downside is that it's free, which is a bit disconcerting. 😂
Love this! 5/5
I came across Spark after checking out another email program, which provided many of the same features, but was lacking in quite a few as well. A friend recommended Spark and I decided to check it out. Turns out, I’d been using email all wrong. It does a great job at filtering out the fluff. The follow ups are great, and the reminder settings are easy, even integrating with Zoom, which is a must have in the age of pandemic. Have their been hiccups? Sure. But these are largely PEBKAC errors more than anything. Recommend to all who have a mac!
Show me a better email client... 5/5
had it for perhaps around 3 years, and i savor the flava every time i use ol sparky... shes a trusty old gray pack~mule thats always puttin' in the heavy grunt work, 24/7, 365, rain O’ shine. Never kicked me and always been a smooth ride stompin on would be hackers.
Love it! 5/5
By Valerio Costilla
I am very new to this app, but so far I am loving it! It is far more reliable, and aesthetically pleasing, than Apple Mail.
