Searching for Newton alternative

I’m very picky about email apps and Newton has spoiled me for the past three years. When they told us they’re closing shop, I went through more than a dozen third party email apps to find one that suits my preferences. I am a firm believer that premium features are worth paying for if done it’s done right.

Canary, though relatively new, has a lot of key features all email apps should have: color coded email by account, email tracking, and EXCELLENT tech support just to name a few.

Though not quite up to Newton standards, this app seems promising and I look forward to future features and releases. There are small nuisances like the inability to sort accounts after you create them, and the ability to pick notification sounds but these are trivial next to the functionality and the security provided by Canary. It’s also a bit slower to load emails than Newton. But for now, it seems I will stick by Canary and see what it becomes!

Thank you for fixing the iPhone issue when trying to select/delete multiple emails at once!

Besides that particular (albeit annoying) issue, I've had no problems and a great experience using Canary as my primary email client on both my iPhone & my Mac. I used to just use the default "Mail app" that comes with Apple products, but wanted something slightly more robust with additional features. I also didn't want to have to pay an arm and a leg, especially with a subscription, so after researching all the different email clients that were available for both iOS & Mac (so that they would sync seamlessly), I decided on Canary and I'm happy I chose it. Like I said, I did get a little frustrated with the iPhone app when it wouldn't allow me to select multiple emails at a time, which I do almost daily because I delete many of the emails I receive without even looking at them (lol), but now that seems to be fixed and the app works perfectly otherwise, and the Mac/desktop version has given me no problems whatsoever! Overall, if you're looking for a more "premium" email client that you can sync with iCloud to both your iOS and Mac devices, I think you'll be very pleased with Canary! Thank you so much, developers, for creating this great app & for promptly fixing the issue I talked about above! I very much appreciate it!!! 😊😊😊

What new features??

I’ve been requesting basic features from canary for months that are found in other email apps, and this “new” version includes none of them. In fact, I can see nothing new in the design, settings, or appearance of the app. Looks like a ridiculous excuse to charge loyal users again. What a crock of **it.
In response to the developer's boilerplate answer to my review, the app has basically the same exact features as before with some minor vague "redesign", but basic features such as an instant undelete feature and the ability to see more than first names in the headers of email threads are still missing despite being requested repeatedly by users and being found on almost all other email apps. So to the developer, stop posting BS boilerplate excuses and start delivering done actual new useful features.
To the developer: you completely miss the point. Yes, you have gussied up the interface a little and put a few new features in place that nobody needs, but your app is woefully behind other email apps in basic features that you continue to ignore. People keep requesting these basic features, and you ignore them. So yes, there are some new features and yes each screen looks a little different, but basically you have added nothing of any practical value. Try adding a few features that people actually need and request and maybe people will be willing to pay for them.

Developer Response ,

*Revised Response*

You can review a full list of new features introduced in 3.0 via Settings > Pro. Further, every single screen in the entire app is new & has been thoroughly redesigned - from the email list to the email reader to Compose, encryption, settings, contact pane, search pane, built-in calendar, etc. It would appear that you have missed all this entirely and as such most of what you allege is inaccurate. In any case, we are unable to indulge individual feature requests. If you do not see value in the 3.0 update, you can choose not to pay and still retain access to core functionality as well as features present in 2.0.

*Original Response*

Hi, version 3.0 has been redesigned from the ground up to be faster, simpler, and more powerful.

If you've previously purchased version 2.0, you can upgrade to version 3.0, and continue to use it, for free. You get the all-new design as well as all the features you had before, including encryption. You will not be locked out or lose core functionality even if you do not pay for version 3.0.

If you want the new, premium, features introduced in version 3.0, you have to pay - and if you’ve already bought version 2.0, you get a discount.

We believe this is fair both to existing as well as new users, and enables us to continue development and offer the very best features to all our users on an ongoing basis, while still leveraging a fair and transparent business model that does not rely on selling user data.
