GROUPS – The ultimate in team chat. No more switching between apps! Groups allows you to chat with Spike and non-Spike users seamlessly and directly in your inbox by combining the best of team collaboration apps and your existing email accounts. Instant file sharing & file history also makes collaborative work a breeze

ADVANCED SEARCH – Never lose another email or attachment again! Advanced Search puts everything you need at your fingertips. Search by contact or keyword and Spike will instantly display all emails, files, tags or messages

FILE MANAGER – Visually preview attachments within your emails without downloading (!!) for a quicker and more convenient way to manage and search your files. Works with all file types including photos, videos, spreadsheets, documents, PDFs and gifs

CALENDAR – Manage all of your calendars attached to multiple email addresses in one place and on one screen. Integrates instantly with Google Calendar, Apple Calendar & more

SUPER STEALTH ENCRYPTION – Ensure your data is secure with powerful AES256 email encryption. Encrypted emails are displayed directly within Spike and are just a click away for non-Spike users

AN ARSENAL OF EXPRESSION – Get your message across using gifs, voice notes, emojis, drawings, photos and videos. Typing is not your thing? Place voice and video calls from within the Spike app

DARK MODE – Spike’s dark theme grants sharper contrasts, decreases eye fatigue and saves energy

We’ve designed Spike to cut out the bull$h%t and bring you more of what you really need. Conversational email will help you make real connections with the people who matter most, combining the best of instant messaging and email to keep all your conversations moving forward

Missing one thing.

I love everything about this app. It will replace my regular email one day, but for now I use it WITH my email. The reason is because there is no option to be able to delete in bigger quantities. Currently you can delete a message and it will give you an option to delete that senders previous emails en masse, but there is no option to choose many different senders to delete at once.

There should be an option to choose several emails you would like to delete, and much like the current method, it can ask you to delete the selected messages, or the bulk quantity of all the previous senders messages. It would be much easier to remove one sender from the bulk quantity I am deleting at the time if for some reason I didn't want to delete all those emails from that sender, go back and delete all the ones I chose, then just choose that one email again and delete that one, than to have to do it all one sender at a time

I have 42,000 emails that need to be deleted and obviously it is too hard to do it one by one. Being able to delete many emails from one sender is a huge upside to this app but being able to choose many different centers and then deleting all their previous emails would really help clear up my inbox

Hi there,

You can easily delete messages in bulk from multiple senders and thousands at a time. To select multiple messages, tap on the small ‘Check’ icon (top right) above your messages. This will select all messages. You can choose if to bulk delete/ archive/ mark as read. You can read about all our bulk actions here:

We're happy to explain further - just chat with us at and we'll be happy to help you out :)

A great people focused email app

Love the priority vs other granularity for notifications. I have been opposed to using email as chat; preferring tools like slack/messages to fill those gaps. This is the first tool to make me reconsider - it makes email feel like texting by removing the extraneous bits and making quick replies.

I have many apps for communications based on the person of the context - and now for people who use email to quickly communicate I have an app for that too. This isn’t a replacement for my email app anymore than slack is a replacement for texting. Normally I turn off all email notifications and process my inbox on an alter schedule - but by using Spike I can now quickly reply to those people who see email more as chat.. in the same way I use wechat, line, Facebook messenger, etc. for those who prefer chat on this platforms. Given the chat like features such as read stays, grouping attachment in the same bubble - is really is just one more chat app for the people who prefer email.

This app is pretty great

I am an email app junkie. I have spent a lot of time with a lot of apps (Newton, Spark, Outlook, Trove, Astro, Boomerang...I am sure I am forgetting some here). Newton was my all time favorite for awhile but lately has become a bit buggy and slow.

Hop is fantastic. It is LIGHTNING fast. Like the UI is just soup to nuts blazing fast and responsive. The SMS like approach to email seemed gimmicky at first but this is a really great implementation of the idea. Some really interesting ideas around common recipient groups. Search is incredibly quick. Calendar integration works. Love the ability to easily send so many different types of media (GIFs, drawings...). Integrated voice calls (!!). It's packed with good ideas that are uniformly executed perfectly.

Only shortcoming is it uses IMAP for Gmail instead of the Gmail API and my employer (a very large software company) blocks IMAP access so I can only use this for personal email. Ordinarily that'd be a deal breaker for me - I love having one app for all my accounts - but Hop is so good otherwise that I'm using a second app for work email.

If there's any way to support the Gmail API in future I would seriously pay for this app. It's good enough to be worth money (like Newton).
