    You may well be correct. But I do know Apple did not design Apple mail for me.

    It seems to be designed for simple minded people that do simple minded things (hence most likely teenagers or early college students that are more concerned about how they look than how things work). While I use it, it certainly does not meet my needs.

    They just published a full-fledged reskin of their app last week. It might scratch an itch for you that was missing before.

    The reason I brought Fastmail into this was the fact that the background rules/options/features are quite robust. I did try Newton on a trial basis, and there just wasn't enough to move the needle for me.

    You have to pay subscription and they still want to scan your emails for data aggregation. Only an Android co-creator would think this is ok.

    I paid for Newton the first time around and got a partial refund once the app was "pulled." It wasn't a terrible experience, but $50 is pretty hefty price to pay. I'll stick Apple's own mail app.

    I used to LOVE Newton. I switched to Canary even though it's not as great. I was ready to sign up for Newton again until i read this. :(

    Fair point, I now see what you were getting at with this.

    It is $30 a month. You have to make it through 2 surveys and a 1:1 video interview before you get boarded and are able to download the TestFlight beta. They are charging people to use beta.

    Yeah, I laughed at them when they told me the price. Won’t even do a trial either.

    If anyone deserves to crash and burn with that kind of business model, it is them. They are looking to pad their resumes (and get rich) with what they think are the elite and gullible. I am one of the two.

    Haven’t they also been in ‘beta’ a couple of years now?

    Yes. About 2.5 years.

    They need to hire more developers with all that money, perhaps they’ll actually release something then! lol

    Pigeon looks veeeeeery interesting and apparently IMAP support is next on the roadmap. Beta should be released before the end of the month they told me today.

    Sure

    DM me your email address and I can put it in. I'll give you the heads up though that for the most part they're only working with businesses at this point. And the PP is on their site - superhuman.com

    They are over a month late from their beta release estimate. I wonder what their price point is going to be.

    I don't think "Newton" @$50 a year, is meant to succeed other than planting the seed of subscription based mail for all the other email apps.

    $50 does sound excessive, but when all the other email apps suddenly start advertising at $10 a year- we'll probably buy into it because hey- it's not $50.
