    Newton Mail today announced a new feature for its iOS mail app called "Recap," aimed at resurfacing conversations that are awaiting your reply or that need to be followed up. Recap covers not only basic text response prompts, but emails that include upcoming due dates, reminders, and more in an effort to ensure you don't miss any important threads.

    The company explains that this works through an early morning notification every day relating to the mail that the app thinks is recap-worthy, marked with a blue dot in the new Recap section. You can swipe to dismiss those you might have already responded to, or don't need to respond to, or choose for them to resurface later.

    Newton promises that Recap only shows "the most relevant conversations that you need to look at," meaning they go away automatically when they're dealt with or simply disappear after a few days of non-responsiveness.
    Recap is only available for English users at the moment, and it won't be on the Newton Mail app for iPad yet, but the company says to expect that down the line. The update is also bringing Newton out of its introductory price ($4.99 per month or $49.99 per year) and going forward the service will cost $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year (existing subscribers will retain their current price).

    Recap follows Newton Mail's last feature addition in May, called "True Inbox," which automatically places any sent mail at the top of your Inbox. This happens even if the recipient has yet to respond to your message and in effect treats each email conversation like a threaded messaging app, marking the company's attempt to make the "Sent" folder obsolete.

    I do love the app, but even with my slightly discounted subscription it’s stretching it...

    £36 per year is pushing it, but love the very accurate read receipts.

    I’m a fan at my discounted price of $39/yr but I’d have to th8nk long and hard about $99/yr.

    I have been using newton for the past few months, I love it. At $40 a year it is a no brainer. Not sure I would have made the jump at $100 a year though.

    Damn part of me was hoping it had the look and feel of the NewtonOS and eWorld feel.

    The screenshot is demonstrating a reminder to Albert [Einstein] not booking the tickets somewhere. The first thing this reminded me of is Einstein fleeing the Nazis. They probably should have swapped around the physicists...

    Same. I hope they grandfather the discounted plans! Definitely not worth $100 a year to me.

    £100 a year is just insane for an email app. What's next, the first £100-a-year calendar app? It's getting nearer to the point where subscribing to 'core' apps will one day cost £1000 a year (you're already on the way if you use MS Office, Apple Music, Photoshop, Todoist, Feedly, Dropbox, Evernote, 1Password, Netflix, Day One, etc. etc.). They're really having a laugh with this pricing.

    $100 a year is tomfoolery. I think I’ll build a rollercoaster instead.

    I am subscribed at the same price. As much as I like Newton, I am not going to pay $100 a year. I think they have just priced themselves out of business with the new model.

    Newton Mail staff confirmed those who had been subscribed at the lower rate will not be affected by the price increase. For us, nothing changes.

    I have Newton installed on my IPP and I have enjoyed using it for the $39 I paid for it. However, I'm not renewing the subscription next year. The Apple Mail app (for Yahoo email), in conjunction with the Gmail app are more than enough for me. Better yet, they're both free.

    I only stay with Newton because of the awesome tracking. If the Apple Mail app did this, then I wouldn’t look back.

    I also like the fact that the app can be locked even if one is using the rest of the phone. I wish Apple had that feature, long with there tracking. I also find some of the superchargers handy. By far, the tracking is my fav feature as well.

    The tracking is great! You can even see how many times someone has read your email, so when I email the ex wife I can see how much I've annoyed her with my email! lol
