    I'm probably going to get killed for this since I'm guessing it's a frequent topic but which email app is your current favorite and why?

    Spark. I like the cards that separate new mail, newsletters, and the inbox. The customizable shortcuts are great too.

    I just wish it handled the rendering of HTML better. Dispatch is very good about that.

    I initially went with Mailbox and stuck with it even though updates have slowed to a trickle because I was hooked to the triage features. I then went to Spark because it is essentially a better Mailbox.

    I can't use inbox because it doesn't have permission to access my work gmail account, and cloudmagic feels too slow and laggy for me.

    I am trying Outlook now because it somehow seems to sport a more polished interface, and it has an iPad app (something which Spark still lacks). I have been wanting to move away from Mailbox for a while, but simply haven't found a better desktop mail app that supports push gmail, and as far as possible, I would like the same email client on all my Apple devices.

    So no favourites yet.

    I am using Outlook right now and it seems to work fine for me. Of course I don't do anything overly demanding with email so the stock email program probably would have worked good also.

    Spark is fantastic. I wish it was on the iPad too.

    Does outlook receive emails quickly? I use the built in app and it takes forever. It was fine on iOS 8.x

    I get emails on Outlook pretty much instantaneously for me.

    Spark just added all the new 6S/Plus goodies and Spotlight search (whoo!). :D

    I was looking to replace the native mail app on my phone about a month ago, but decided to just stick with it for the time being. I did really like Outlook a lot when I tried it out. Spark is also very good as well. But I generally just receive newsletter emails from places I shop and/or travel promotions from airlines/hotels, etc. So I can't say that I coorespond with people through my personal email all that often.

    IMO, none of the new back of email apps "have it all".
    • I am currently settling with Inbox by Gmail. However, I am missing the "share sheet" and Google Drive support.
    • The Gmail app has the functionality I need but it looks outdated, and is a bit of a pain to use on a 6s plus (e.g. no support for Apple's "swipe to go backward" gesture.
    • Boxer is very close but (IMO) performance is poor when you zoom emails.
    • Outlook is also very close but (IMO) its landscape view on the 6s/6 Plus is poor when compared to stock Mail. It lacks zoom in landscape mode and wastes space (e.g. the composition and view panes are a microscopic fraction of the screen).
    I am looking forward to see what the forthcoming Airmail IOS brings.

    My non business email requirements are limited so I stick with stock.
