Very Simplified

This email service is very simplified, and allowed their users to take control of their own inbox.

Personally, I love the “done” button. It feels so much more appropriate than “archive.” It’s satisfying to click the check mark, and your email isn’t completely deleted, so you can easily find it again.

I also love the simple overview of any purchases and subscriptions OnMail sees in my inbox. It allows me to see all the information I want to see without having to read a very unappealing, cluttered email.

I also love the split inbox feature. At some point, I will be switching this to my government email, so I can split my personal life with my military life. I can select only emails from the military to be in one inbox, and all of my civilian messages in another. If I wanted to get another job, I can split all the messages from that job too, it’s really nice.

Overall a great service, and very simple. There’s not too much to it.

The only thing I do not like is the inability to use the email account with 3rd party apps. I prefer Apple’s default Mail app at times, only because all of my email accounts are on it anyways, so it would be nice to have it all in one place. However, with that being said, OnMail’s app is still simple and easy to navigate, and it’s not nearly a big enough deal to give it any less than 5 stars!

It does everything an email does right.

An email platform that’s different (in a good way)

Here’s what makes email in OnMail different

Splits: email can be “split” into different views and you can adjust notifications for each split. I now only get notifications for emails I receive into my primary.

Done: email can be marked as done. And the way this is done in the app is really cool. Every email platform I’ve tried uses the swipe right / swipe left for actions. OnMail has that functionality but it also allows you to tap on a circle to the left of each email to mark it as done. For some reason, this is much easier for me and makes it easy to manage my emails.

Other pros: got my own new email of just my name without having to get creative like I have to on Gmail platform. Dark mode is nice and interaction in the app is intuitive after you get the hang of it.

Cons: free account allows only 3 accounts and paid account only allows 5. I have more than 5 accounts but I’m now rethinking which ones I really need.

There are also some performance issues in the app that I noticed early on when using it a lot. Now that I’ve split up my inbox and am now more in maintenance mode, the issues aren’t as noticeable and I anticipate fixes are coming.

Composing Emails

The mobile platform seems fairly intuitive and minimalistic. That’s great, but the bottom navigation bar is a bit small, which can make it difficult to slide between splits. Sometimes it triggers the phone’s app switch feature rather than sliding to a different split. My biggest issue that has kept me from using OnMail is composing emails. For some reason, when starting a new paragraph in an email, the auto-capitalization feature doesn’t work. Having to manually capitalize the beginning of a sentence is inconvenient and ends up forcing me to copy and paste emails into OnMail rather than just composing them within the app. Having the phone’s native typing features available seems like a fairly simple thing to add, and it’s hard to understand why it’s even disabled.

Also, adding the “drag circle to mark as read” feature from Edison is sorely missing. It’s hard to use any email app that doesn’t have that feature at this point. Something similar to that would really upgrade OnMail.
