More than 50% of the emails are being opened on smartphones and tablets. Well, that’s impressive! But in the year 2010, there were merely 5% of mobile email users. So, that makes us think about some questions. What made them switch? Flexible email apps? Are there more advantages of managing an email account from a mobile phone? Yes, we definitely think that’s true. Users want to stay connected with their email contacts even on the go which is both time-saving and convenient as well.

Personally, I don’t even feel like checking emails on my laptop (irrespective of the Internet speed). An email app on my Android device comes handy and saves time. Don’t you feel that as well?

However, there are some tasks which are best done on a desktop, like sending bulk emails. And, obviously, if you are Google’s CEO (dream come true!), you won’t be doing everything from the smartphone. You would need a laptop or desktop mostly. So, desktop email clients won’t get obsolete, but would be left to have only enterprise email users after a few years.

We’ve compiled a list of best email apps for Android which would help you become more productive and save you a lot of time doing things on the go.

It introduces a premium feature – Sender Profile. It lets you know more about the people who email you. The information includes – Job title, location, organization details, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook & AgelList profiles as well.

You must be already familiar with various organization algorithms or methods put to use by email apps like Inbox, Gmail, and Cloudmagic. They categorize the mail by priority level or by the purpose (Business, Finance, Promotion, Purchase etc). That’s definitely useful and Inbox has proved it to be true. However, this one comes with a unique concept where it organizes your mail by grouping them under Sender IDs. In other words, you can directly search for a message from a particular handle without going through all of the inboxes, thereby reducing clutters.

To my use, it was good. Although, it could be nicer of course!
