Popular email app Spark now plays nicely with your iPad's trackpad
What you need to know
- Spark for iPhone, iPad, and Mac has new features.
- Users of the iPad app now have improved trackpad support.
- Teams can now use emoji when reacting to things, too.
Popular email app Spark has been updated to version 2.7 today, adding improved support for trackpads connected to iPads and more.
There are two big changes that users will notice, with those trackpad improvements front and center. They can now easily scroll through emails and use swipe actions to interact with the app in ways not previously possible. It could be a game-changer for people who primarily handle their email on an iPad.
The other update will be of use to iPhone, iPad, and Mac users, with Sparks for Teams members now able to quickly react to messages using emoji. Because everything is better when an emoji is involved!
The update is rolling out to the App Store now and is a free update for iPhone and iPad (opens in new tab) as well as Mac (opens in new tab).
This news comes hot on the heels of the news that Newton is back – back again! – to offer some competition. Let battle commence!
