For years, I was a prolific user of Inbox by Gmail. When google announced that they planned to retire my beloved email client, I panicked a little. Even a year later, Gmail is a bit of a UI nightmare. After trying a few alternatives, I found Newton.
It was clean, worked on all of my devices, and even resembled Inbox a little. It was perfect in every way except for the fact that it was $50/yr. I have never seen an email client charge an annual fee before. Their argument was that it allows them keep their small dev team fed and roll out new features. I was willing to throw them $50 per year if they were going to actively work on the client. The problem is that they haven’t done that.
I haven’t seen any indication of anything more than bug fixes since Essential bought CloudMagic and made the app available again.
Newton, we are done. I cancelled my subscription and I am giving myself two months to find something else.
Have a suggestion for what I could use? Feel free to drop a comment below. It needs to work on macOS, iPadOS, Android, and ideally Wear OS.
