Spark for Android: Readdle’s Take on the Future of Email

TL;DR:

Today Spark for Android goes live. Spark by Readdle is one of the best email clients on the planet, and we’ve created it with one clear mission – make you love email again.

It helps take control of your inbox: intelligent email prioritization, noise reduction, and cutting-edge tools that give you email superpowers. Spark will help you reach Inbox Zero for the first time ever and give back the time to all those who live by their inbox. 

It was well-received on the Apple platform: iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. Spark has won numerous awards, but most importantly, the hearts of people who live by their inbox.

Why do over 1,000,000 people love Spark? 

1. Reduce the noise using Smart Notifications

2. Focus on what matters. Smart Inbox shows you important emails first

3. Fly through your Inbox using email Superpowers. Spark has cutting-edge email tools that let you fly through your inbox and reach Inbox Zero (snooze, send later, reminders, 3rd party integrations, quick replies, smart search, and much more)

4. Revolutionize how teams collaborate, create, share and delegate email.

The Future of Email

We built Spark with a clear mission - make people love their email again. Why? Because Email is an essential tool that is used worldwide. More than 2.2 billion people rely on it as their communication medium and that number continues to grow every day. You can read the full article and watch the video here.

Email is not going away anytime soon. Quite the opposite, we are witnessing a renaissance of secure and meaningful communication, as outlined in this recent New York Times article

Email serves as an amazing tool for meaningful, one to one communication between people, organizations and communities. Its asynchronous nature (meaning that you can reply later) helps us to do our best creative work, focus on what matters and reply when the time is right for us. We believe it’s a much better way of getting things done, as opposed to the wake of instant communication tools and chats, that keep distracting you.

Building the Future of Email Masterplan

Here’s how we are going to build the Future of Email:

Step 1: Build the Best Personal Email Experience

Step 2: Build the Best Team Email Experience

Why Readdle can solve this?

At Readdle we are always curious. It’s built into our DNA. We’ve built iconic products that redefined personal productivity. Our award-winning apps such as Scanner Pro, Documents, Calendars 5, PDF Expert were downloaded over 100 million times. 

As an App Store pioneer who launched its first app on the very first day of the AppStore, we failed 32 times and we’ve learned a lot. Readdle grew into an independent and profitable business with a team of 150 passionate people. 

Readdle’s mission is to improve people’s lives via technology. We do that by creating apps and services that boost productivity, remove distractions, and save you time. So you can focus on what matters and unlock your full creative potential.

Love Your Email Again

Email is a central part of how people work, communicate and share ideas. It is the glue for all work-related environments and tasks. To accomplish Readdle’s mission, we’ve had to redefine modern email experience and to integrate it with all Readdle’s existing tools.

The modern email experience has a few major problems:

  • Overloaded inbox
  • It's hard to tell what’s important 
  • No way to collaborate around email with your team

We are on track to solve all those problems, and that will reinvent how we work. How are we making people love their email again?

1. Spark is Distraction-Free Email

With its Smart notifications, Spark sends you a notification only if someone important sends you an email. 

We at Readdle believe that we do our best work when there are no distractions. Spark gives you space and peace of mind, so you can focus on meaningful work.

2. Focus on What’s Important with Smart Inbox


Smart Inbox intelligently prioritizes all new emails so you quickly see what’s important. It bubbles email from real people to the top and provides you the tools to batch-delete less important emails such as marketing newsletters and notifications from Amazon and Facebook.


3. Fly through Your Inbox
 Using Email Superpowers

Spark features cutting-edge email tools:

  • Snooze 
  • Send later
  • Reminders and follow-ups 
  • Advanced customization 
  • Pins
  • Smart Search

These professional tools will equip you with everything you need to be on top of your email game. 

All of this will help you quickly reach inbox zero and peace of mind.

4. Reinventing Email Team Collaboration

The way we work as a team is evolving, so should the tools we use. Email is essential to our workflow in many ways, but it has never been designed to be collaborative. We are changing that with Spark, making it easy for your team: 

  1. Discuss email privately with your team
  2. Create email together in real time
