Most default email applications that ship with Android devices are pretty bland, both in aesthetics and user interface. And I guess we can’t blame the OEMs for keeping it that way, since providing an immaculate and flawless Email experience on their devices isn’t their top priority. Despite this, the default email app has served me well, with little cause for gripes, until I noticed XDA Senior Member ashwinsadeep‘s CloudMagic in the XDA Forums.
What the default email client on most devices cannot provide, CloudMagic does, and pleasingly so. The UI is logical in design with mainly gesture-driven actions, smooth transitions of panels and pages, and pleasing colors. CloudMagic does a superior job than most, if not all, default Email clients.In fact, I may even say that CloudMagic does a better job than Google and the official Gmail app.
Furthermore, CloudMagic has support for a wide variety of email hosts and other services, including:
- Yahoo Mail
- Google Apps
- Microsoft Exchange
- Office 365
- IMAP accounts
A comprehensive list, no doubt.
In addition to the standard unified inbox, CloudMagic allows easy access to all folders and sub-categories you may have with your Email accounts, as well as offline Email search. Among the remaining plethora of options and features, the app also includes a handy passcode lock and reminders for starred emails. Unfortunately, CloudMagic “only” supports up to three accounts due to server restrictions, so for those who handle quite a number of Email accounts may be let down.
CloudMagic is pleasing to the eye, easily navigable, and feature packed. These add up to form quite an Email application. If you’re starting to get tired of your current client, CloudMagic is an alternative you must try out. For more information and download, visit the application thread._________
