Spark email app has finally added an Android version. This is coming after many years of serving iOS and macOS users. The email app, which is recording giant strides among other apps in the same category, is now available in the Play Store for download.
Spark has over the years built a reputation for itself—competing with popular apps like Gmail and Outlook. Adding an Android version takes it another step in its ambitious bid to compete with the major players in the market.
Though, the newly launched Android version of Spark still needs some major additions to bring it up to level with the iOS version, the fact that it has taken a giant leap is worth a part on the back. Users, however, will be able to access to some of the app’s major features that include, smart notifications, and email scheduling. You will be able to sort your emails by different categories such as personal, work, and newsletters.
Spark is free for all users, but it has a paid version that gives you access to more interactive features lacking in the free version.
The free version among other features, will allow you access to the following:
Control your inbox: Intelligent email prioritization, noise reduction, and the most advanced email tools at your disposal. Reach Inbox Zero for the first time.
Distraction-free Email: It reduces the noise by only notifying you about emails from people that you know. Reclaim your space for creativity and achieve peace of mind.
Focuses on more important emails: Spark bubbles important messages from real people straight to the top. Pin and reply to those, and batch archive the rest.
In terms of space, Spark will set you back with 64MB in terms of data when downloading it from the Play Store. That said, it is one email app that has a cool and uncluttered user interface, which by the way makes it very easy to access your important emails more speedily.
Without a doubt, the potentials are there for Spark to earn for itself a lot of respect in the market, but it has a lot of work to do if it wants to be in similar league as Gmail and Outlook.
Talking about being in the big league, Gmail on Monday turned 15, and introduced one of the most sort-after features in email—email scheduling. Email scheduling is already a big part of Spark, but it shows how much work that still needs to be done if it wants to catch up with the superpowers.
Gmail was launched in 2014 with 1GB of free storage for every user at the time. Google took a different approach from what other services like Yahoo and Hotmail were offering at the time—built-in Google search right within the email service. This approach among many others attracted millions of individuals, groups, and organizations to the service.
