This time for the Android phone users out there who connect their phone to their work mail.
If you’re like me you have your phone connected to your work email. I find it handy to keep on top of things via email and I pretty much *live* by my Outlook calendar (most will have heard me ask for a calendar invite even for the smallest thing because if it’s not in my calendar, there is a 99.9% chance I’ll forget).
However at least on my Samsung Note 3 (and similar to my previous HTC One) the default mail client app is a bit…. Average. Yes it collects your mail, but that’s about it.
I use sub folders and rules for my mail A LOT. EG: I have a rule for my manager where any mail from her automatically goes into an personalised sub folder (yes Jess, I have one for you too). I find (personally) it makes it a lot easier to go find later on and also so her emails don’t get lost in the plethora of other mail that arrives in my inbox each day. I get a little (1) next to her folder and I know I have an important email I need to check.
But subfolders on the default email client are pretty naff. They’re generally buried under about 3 more taps and you don’t get notifications for them. So very easy to miss important stuff.
So I went looking for something better.
Nine gives you the ability to show ‘All Mail’ which includes the sub folders you’ve chosen to sync as well as your mail inbox. You can also target them as ‘Favourites’ so their only one tap away. It also displays email threads in the more modern fashion of ‘Conversations’ in a very ‘SMS’ style way. I like it.
Nine can also handle your tasks and contacts if you wish, with Notes coming soon (although they’ve said the price will go up when that happens). It also supports Android Wear.
