    After update of official Gmail iOS app I dont like to use it. I think, it became worse from the point of user interface. So, I am looking for an app that I can use my Gmail 2-step security because I dont want to give my master password to 3rd party apps.

    Can you suggest these types of email client apps for me? I think there is no way to use Gmail app passwords on Outlook, cloudmagic, spark etc.

    Many third party apps support Google/Gmails 2-step security including Spark, Airmail and Email by Easylido and probably also Outlook. I have a Gmail account and works fine with all of those.

    I think you are wrong. I already tried Outlook and Spark but they dont accept my Gmail "app passwords" that I generated on my 2-step security page.

    I've recently tested it out with Airmail and Email by Easylido and both work fine with 2 step Gmail verification. I think Spark should also work but I need to check that one again in order to be 100% sure. I have used that months ago for the last time but at the time I also had 2 step verification on I think in Gmail.

    Me too no problem and also 2 step verification on.

    3rd party apps don't see your gmail password. It uses OAUTH authentication for log-in, but once logged-in, apps can store and scan your emails (e.g. for quick reply). So check those settings.
