I was using Sparrow and then the new Gmail. Now i'm using Mailbox after waiting in line and have heard good things about Mail Pilot. I would like to test it out and compare it to the others :)

adammiarka says:

Woohoo! i would like to try

darkj2k says:

The UI looks great and nice to have Exchange support. Wish I am the lucky one.

RevJar says:

I would love to try a new mail app. However, the price is what is keeping me from it. This might be a way to change that.

dalbertson says:

Would love to give it a try! Thanks imore!

RackDaddy says:

Oooh! Oooh! An IMAP reader that may actually work!? Me please!

AgenteJ says:

I think it's a great app, but the price it's really high! Maybe if I win the giveaway... :P

Sylanel says:

I have been watching over reviews of this app and I would be very curious to see how it fares against Sparrow, Mailbox and Taskbox.

ajstockton says:

This looks like a game changer for heavy duty email users with multiple folders once 'PUSH' is available....

garciajbj says:

I currently enjoy using Mailbox for my Gmail, but I would love to have a similar mail app with Exchange support for my work email. Hoping to win so I can give this a try and gain some productivity with my email workflow at my job.

Rowanova says:

I'd like a copy to try out please.

infovestment says:

I sure would love to try Mail Pilot, but 15$ is much too steep if it turns out afterwards that the App is not significantly better than the droves of 99ct - 3$ Apps that handle emails...

ajayinthelife says:

I'm down to give it a shot - let me know if I'm one of the lucky ones!

iJohn3 says:

I would love to win a copy and try it out instead of mailbox.

mk3s says:

I'm definitely interested in using this. So pick me!

Manuel Ortiz1 says:

I think this will be perfect for a business person like me so I can add several email for my business adventures!

vianar says:

I would love a free download to see if this is the mail app for me. Thanks.

csierra72 says:

I would really like to give this a go but the price is steep.

joshyth says:

i would really like to know if there is push support now, before throwing down $$.

Michael Klem says:

IMAP for exchange makes me interested in this. If they had push it would be better.

RodneyJ725 says:

I'm constantly looking for a solid, mail app! Please include me as one of the six winners! :)

ame says:

Ohhh interesting. I hope Push is soon to follow.

joeg679 says:

I'd love to have the app.

Gsarfin says:

Pick me! Pick me!
Sounds like a sweet update. Could be very useful.

Bkbone says:

Hi I really would like to try it. Please.

Park says:

I'd love to try it! The more I look at the app, the harder it is for me to wait and see if I happen to win a copy here. I'm tempted to just buy it now.

sikra says:

Having 2 hours of transportation every day, leaves lots of room to check and organise my work mail. Have a mail client like this looks like it could really contribute to that.

maxaudet says:

Exchange support.. me gusta !
Add me to the draw please

Donald Croce says:

Would love to use a differant mail client that can implement Exchange.....

Simplenough says:

Would love to try it, since gmail stopped sync support, getting it very hard to find best client, currently using safari, this would be nice.

Brian Sanderson says:

Would like to try this software. Cost is keeping me away though. Please let me win a copy.

snrubs says:

I'd love this app. I've been recently looking for a different exchange email solution.

gvndeb60 says:

This sounds nice to try with my work and my wife's school email!

RocketmanNY says:

Would love to try. About time to get away from the default app.

yannick_909 says:

I'm using both Gmail and Hotmail. I was disappointed by Mailbox. I really wish I can try this app and send you feedbacks.

sprocket2107 says:

I'd love to give this a go. $15 is a little too steep but it seems like it would take care of all of my concerns regarding mail.

eatbear says:

I'd like to try it too! :)

Paul Alvarez1 says:

Have been considering Mail Pilot for awhile but was concerned about the imap enabled exchange support. Now there really isn't much to be concerned about so I would love to try it out :)

dahanbn says:

I'd like to test mail pilot. :-)

ericsisk says:

I'd love to give this a go, as it seems a pretty awesome email client!

joehero says:

Super excited about this app, but it is a bit too pricey, would love for iMore to hook me up!

tnahumck says:

Would love to give this a go!

Skyflowers says:

Reviews have been on the harsh side for this app - whining about no IMAP ( here it is ) and no push notifications. People forget that projects take time to flesh out fully... And more to the point, forget that code 'doesn't just happen' and can be tricky to get right. Good on the MailPilot developers for attempting to do something new with email.

RoboWarrior says:

Sparrow is dead, need a new mail app

LeonH73 says:

I would like to try it. Looks pretty interesting!

traveling2 says:

It would be excellent to have an opportunity to use this app.

usedbywho says:

Always willing to try new Email apps! Thank you !

RichardWjr says:

Would love to try it. Looks pretty cool

needtogolf says:

The standard Mail app is serviceable, but there needs to be more options to handle regular mail related activities that can be done in Outlook. Hopefully Mail Pilot will start adding those options.

David Collazo says:

I wouldn't mind trying something new

baghramdunks says:

I wouldn't mind winning and trying out this app

glennkaonang says:

The price tag is really high, so I assume that this is a very feature-packed email client. However, the idea of implementing a sort of to-do-list system into email doesn't suit me very well. Perhaps it could change once I've tried it out. Thanks.

melwan says:

It's been on my wish list for a few days because if the price tag. Hopefully, I will have it on my springboard soon? :)

stagzta says:

That are good news. Would love to use it every day. And when it comes for free - that would be awesome!

ScottAB says:

Finally, a better than iPhone mail app that has Exchange access. Yes please!!

bergman says:

I'd like to try MailPilot. I have multiple Exchange and Gmail accounts. The apple native mail app just isn't robust enough for business use. It's very frustrating since I am a dedicated iPhone user. if I like the app, I will endorse it among a large list of business users who buy the apps I recommend!

larrymcj says:

Unfortunately, if you (or your company) use Dovecot IMAP server software, you're still out of luck. Though this IMAP server software for Linux is one of the world's most popular, Mail Pilot won't (yet) work with it. says:

Would love to try it out, always looking for an email app that can handle Exchange the way Outlook does.

ckillam3 says:

I would love a Mail Pilot code please. I am not using Gmail or Yahoo and need an app that aggregates all of my email I receive. Thank you.

shinuyuki says:

Would love to give this a try as a Mailbox alt.

rexterslayde says:

I've been following their progress and the app looks great. Would love a chance to try it out!!!

GeniusUnleashed says:

I'd try it for free but the reviews aren't so hot for this app right now. Hopefully this update will help because for that price I don't see them being around for long.

spartyguy says:

This looks great, I'd love a copy to try!

agleung says:

Just a couple of thoughts:

Push notification require giving email info to a third party server which is a potential source for security breach. Corporate IT departments will frown on that.

I like adding reminder functionality to use email as a todo app rather than using it for general inbox management.

ShermanCheng says:

I would like to try it....thanks

LazyMe says:

I have recently (finally?) made the move back to iPhone after migrating to blackberry for 3 years. On first arriving back to the "phone" version of iOS I was pleasantly surprised to see how the connectivity (email specifically) side of things have developed. I started off with the standard mail app. This kept me going for a while, it was smooth, quick and did most things i needed it to do. Then I decided to give the Gmail app a try, things started to get interesting. All of a sudden i could do a lot more than i could before. I was able to access a whole world of google the standard app did not allow. This made me happy, but yet, something seemed to be missing, a certain kind of "productivity" if you will. By chance a friend mentioned MailBox to me. I immediately downloaded the app, and joined the queue. I quite literally watched my place in the queue like a hawk (with the screenshots to prove it). Then i finally got my chance! The app made sense to me, it was smooth, and elegant. The simplicity and flow where incredible, and not to mentioned the ability to turn my inbox into a todo list! It was incredible! I felt as if the hight of email had finally been reached. But alas, as the days went by i started nitpicking at the shortcomings, the missing features. The honeymoon period was over. This is when i discovered the Mail Pilot review. It seemed the logical next move, it seemed to be what i have been waiting for! It seemed fate had brought me to this review not by chance, but by destiny! Please iMore, assist in the natural progression of the mail ecosystem!

SkottM says:

Oh, I've been looking for a replacement for my email. Please let it be me who wins!

JGRobinson says:

I've had this software since the first version (paid), and although its a great idea, it is very very buggy at the moment and crashes often, the developers are attempting to correct these and not have a crash reporter, but I'm a bit disappointed at the moment about how buggy this actually is.

Fingers cross they stablize it soon.

jpr1972003 says:

The app sounds cool, but the price tag is too steep for a mail app!

pinpoint007 says:

I've used Sparrow, Mailbox, Taskbox, and Mail but haven't settled on a favorite yet. I haven't pulled the trigger on Mailpilot due to the reviews, but I'd love a chance to try it out! Thanks!

Jay Mobile says:

I would like to win something for once

CavemanJohn says:

This is really interesting software and I'd love to try it before I buy it.

linsiris says:

Looks good, I'd love a code.

Steve Robertson says:

The concept is great, but the bad reviews plus the high price make me hesitant. I would love to try it before I buy it.
