Evomail for iPhone and iPad review: Full email folder support for the organizationally obsessed!

Evomail is an email app for iPhone and iPad that takes a lot of the same features we love from Mailbox, Dispatch, and more but adds certain highly wanted features that a lot of others unfortunately lack, such as folder support. Evomail currently supports Gmail, iCloud, and Yahoo! accounts which makes it a pretty relevant option for almost everyone.

To start using Evomail, you just need to configure your mail accounts. While Gmail, iCloud, and Yahoo! are already supported, the developer has said that more mail account types will be coming in the future as well. Once you're signed in you're ready to start swiping your way to an empty inbox.

Much like other popular mail apps, Evomail uses swipe gestures to let you filter your way through emails faster. Swipe to the right to mark a message as complete and swipe to the left to delete it. Tapping on a message will open it. You can star it or share it along the top or return to your inbox.

Along the bottom of the message view you can interact with messages in more advanced ways. From here you can put a message inside a folder that you've created, mark it for later, mark it as done, or delete it. If you choose to mark it for later you can choose from three quick options; later today, tomorrow, or next week. If you want a more detailed way to mark for later, you can do so by tapping on the carat below the quick settings. From here you can choose a specific date and time for the message to re-appear in your inbox.

From the main menu of Evomail you can dig deeper into individual account settings and change things such as signatures on a per-account basis. There aren't a ton of options but it gets the job done. I'd really like to see some options to set notifications on a per account basis such as disabling push for accounts I don't really need it for.

The good

  • Folder support! If you miss being able to file things away in apps like Mailbox, Evomail gives you your organization power back
  • Great interface with menus that not only make sense, but are placed logically
  • Advanced snooze options for custom dates and times
  • Push notifications
  • Signatures on a per account basis

The bad

  • Push notifications can be off or on, not on a per account basis, definitely not a deal breaker but it would be a nice addition in a future update
  • No Exchange support

The bottom line

Evomail for iPhone and iPad is not only beautifully designed but provides a happy medium between productivity powerhouse and full on mail suite. With swipe gestures for marking messages quickly, you'll be able to empty your inbox in no time. Features like folder support also gives you the ability to organize when you'd like and when you have time without relying on a secondary option such as the native Mail app.
