CloudMagic was updated with Android Wear support just as the first watches were going home with I/O attendees. That was still v1, but now we're making the jump to the v5.0 branch, which seems a little dramatic. In fairness, there's a lot of new stuff.

1 2 3

Here's the full changelog for CloudMagic v5.0.11.

  • You can now access your complete mailbox
  • Access to Spam folder and option to move emails to spam
  • Quick filters from inbox to reach unread or starred emails
  • Choose color for each of your email accounts
  • Set email alert notification tone of your choice
  • Set nickname to your email accounts
  • Cards are faster than ever before
  • A default option to ‘reply’ an email instead of ‘reply all’

If that sounds like a good time, hit the Play Store to update your device. Don't have CloudMagic yet? It's free, and a pretty solid unified email app.

    Version 1 to version 5 lol? Counting must be hard. (unless someone made a mistake lol)

    • DanSan

      v2, 3 and 4 failed miserably lol

    • sivkai

      Probably has something to do with matching Android L which will most likely be 5.0

    • T

      Developers do need version numbers aswell, maybe they finished v2...4 but decided only v5 was ready for the public.

    CloudMagic is awesome, I stopped using the stock Gmail/Email apps months ago.

    • Rudie

      You do realize all Exchange mail runs through Cloudmagic servers? That is why you can't search mail older than two weeks.
      I think this is a serious issue.

      • chiragpinjar

        Yes, we use the cloud to download and push emails to your devices. Cloud helps us deliver many benefits to you -https://cloudmagic.com/k/faq#cloud

        • RTWright

          See this is where I have a problem with this..... It's on the "Cloud" where your head is firmly at as well. This is allowing a company to have full access to private files that could contain customer/client information that should never been seen by anyone but the ones with the right to see it. I don't care what you have written in your so called policies, anyone can write that stuff up. You are no longer secure once it leaves the primary server to go to their server then to your phone. Sorry but I'm not buying this. If you were so secure you'd be definitely charging for this app and not giving it away free. There is this old saying, if something sounds to good to be true? Then it normally is!

          • Chirag N R

            As I have commented elsewhere in this thread, we are working on payment options.

          • RTWright

            Again, your putting on more than you know. I suggest people look at the permissions. I use AquaMail and it does not scan for other apps/programs/bookmarks ect.... While in use. This one does, it monitors all app usage and should never be doing such. This set off a major flag with me and it's bad enough Google knows so much about us ( It is there OS at least though ), I'm not about to trust someone like this.

          • Jason Bourne

            Unless they are VC funded or ad-driven....

      • CoreRooted

        Simple solution: Don't use this for anything that might contain sensitive emails. I've never allowed my work emails to reside on my personal device and I wouldn't ever use a cloud based storage/indexing service on my work device.

        One would think this would be common sense?

        • ScooterG


      • chiragpinjar

        BTW, you can search your whole mailbox.

  • Jorge Rhor

    Now that I cannot use Push Notifications on Gmail since I switched phones a few months ago, this is the only service that gives me that. Damn Google....

    • Hsanchez957

      It's why I stopped using Gmail. I only get push notifications for the "Main" emails and none of the other ones under a different label.

      • yieldway17

        Go inside other auto-labels and you can turn notifications on.

        • Hsanchez957

          Never worked for me. I have it enabled but only the Primary ones come through on push. The others I have to go into the app and check for them.

          • yieldway17

            Interesting. I had the same problem and someone suggested this in one forum which resolved it for me.

            Or you can go back to classic GMail instead of the auto-labeling thing whatever Google calls it as.

          • Hsanchez957

            It's alright. I'm not sweating it that much since I started using CloudMagic. I have 3 emails to maintain so I'd rather go to one app for that. I hope one day the classic Email gets an overhaul to be more like Gmail. I might consider going back then.

  • Hsanchez957

    This is by far the best email app I've used. Biggest pro for me was how easy it was to set up my Outlook email. Always gave me trouble on the stock Email app.

  • DemandTrialByCombat

    Nine is better

    • Renan Lazarotto

      CloudMagic = Free.
      Nine: 10 bucks.

      Not everybody wants to spend 10 bucks on a mobile email client.

      • Chris

        I did. Well worth it tbh. Great support from Nine as well.

        • Renan Lazarotto

          But only for Exchange accounts, right?

      • DemandTrialByCombat

        True, but then you get what you pay for. For me, bypassing exchange security of annoying pin requirement was alone worth it. Android wear support is also awesome.

        • Hsanchez957

          Once I set up my exchange email once it's worked for me every time with no problems. Cloudmagic even has their single account so whenever I flash a ROM or switch phones I only have to sign in once and I instantly get all my emails back.

          • ScooterG

            Just think about that for a minute...not 5 seconds...a minute. Anything seem out of place?

          • Hsanchez957

            No, what do you mean?

        • Daniel

          I love you. I just switched from stock, and now I can get back my Moto X bluetooth-unlocks-the-screen feature. Firm just changed policy.

        • DanSan

          is Nine cloud based as well? Im looking for a suitable replacement for my exchange email but dont want my emails passing through anyone elses servers before hitting the exchange server at work

          • tjs

            No, Nine uses Exchange ActiveSync to connect your device directly to the exchange server you are requesting from.

          • DanSan

            thank you!

        • Jason Bourne

          The email app "MailWise" also bypasses the exchange security requirements... and it costs $0.

        • EowynCarter

          Yup, i was happy when nine added that feature.Been using it ever since.

          And what's the problem with paying apps ? Would you work for no salary ?

        • http://www.RobGrijseels.com Rob Grijseels

          If it is just for bypassing the exchange security you can also use the following xposed module: http://repo.xposed.info/module/org.flacid.exchangebypass
          With that you can keep using the origional email app, without having to use a pin.

          • EowynCarter

            I'm not root. And i don't mean to root unless i **have** to.

  • Renan Lazarotto

    Since then this can sync with Outlook.com? That was the main reason I didn't switched to any other email client, now I can ditch Gmail and Outlook!

    • Hsanchez957

      Yea it's always been able to sync to Outlook, it's a big reason why I use it.

  • Dan

    BE AWARE: Cloudmagic pulls all of your emails onto their servers and does the indexing and searching on their servers. That means all of your emails are available to anyone with access to Cloudmagic's server.

        NSA has spoken...

        you came out of nowhere, beating competition left, right and centre, bringing server infrastructure for indexing and great support for bazillion email services - to which some proper insight is required.

        yet, almost zero bugs, great interface, polished etc.

        absolutely the same pattern of an indie developer doing agile development (you develop in little steps) that I've seen growing up on Android market ever since my first device... oh! wait a sec ;))

        personally I did my research - and you weren't considered for one second. Mostly, when power of mobile devices is strong enough (and will be only stronger and stronger) to do fulltext indexing on them - and space will be there as well.

        I switched from Touchdown to Nine - for anyone struggling with their work email give it a try - not an advert, an advice I've needed when looking for proper email client.

        Stay away from anyone with a cream around mouth providing *free* email client - unless you are alright with Orwell's 1984. This facebook generation generally is, so why should I wonder...

        • teenage_fangirl_13

          It's ok, they can read all my email correspondence with my Twilight: Edward Loves Jacob erotic fanfiction members' club friends :) <3<3<3

        • Chirag N R

          Wow, few lines of yours are a compliment to our pace :-) BTW, we are working on some payment options. Will keep you posted.

        • Matthew Wheeler

          App is missing basic features like the ability to specify which folders you want to push/sync/pin as favorites, and drafts. Nine is superior at this time, though not free.

      • Dan

        "Your data is sacred to us", said a random person on the internet with no mention of criminal background checks for Cloudmagic employees or physical security at the Cloudmagic data center(s).

        Also, this statement "we take all measures to keep your data secure" is ridiculous. You make yourself less believable by mouthing marketing platitudes that are obviously untrue. Cloudmagic doesn't "take all measures" and pretending otherwise means either you're clueless or you believe that the target market is clueless. Cloudmagic takes whatever measures are believed to be good enough while still being cost effective. For example, does Cloudmagic require that anyone with physical access to the server always work in teams of two people who are together at all times? I'm willing to bet that I know the answer. That just one example of a valid security measure that I'm certain Cloudmagic doesn't take.

    • Carlos David

      And Google don't, right?

      • DanSan

        Only if you're using the Gmail. Not something people might feel comfortable using when accessing their work, exchange based email.

    I love using cloud magic for all my extra emails!

  • enoch861

    Why aren't there any sync settings? This is one thing that has put me off from using CloudMagic. I don't want my Exchange Server pushing all the time. I want to be able to tell it to sync every X minutes every once in a while. Also, why can't I tell it how far back to sync my emails?

    Otherwise, it's a fantastic email client that barres me from using it because of those issues.

    • Gator352

      Same here. I want to MANUALLY update my inbox at my choosing by hitting a "sync" button. I don't want it to push anything. Otherwise it's a great client!

    • Rudie

      There's no syncing because you are not connected to your exchange server. You are connected to the Cloudmagic cloud. Cloudmagic is connected to your server and collects your mail, for you to pluck it out of the cloud.

    • Chirag N R

      Curious to know why you need sync settings. CloudMagic uses the cloud to download and push emails to your device. Unlike stock email apps, in CloudMagic all the heavylifting is done in the cloud, so that app is easy on your battery and data.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

  • Renan Lazarotto

    Do you guys have any other suggestion on mail clients that doesn't use cloud and support both gmail and outlook? I've been using CloudMagic for the past hours, but I didn't liked the fact that it stores my mails on their clouds and the fact that you can't zoom your email without opening a "new window" (yes, this really annoys me)

    • Jason Bourne

      Seconded on the "double tap/pinch to zoom" thing... why it opens another window is beyond me.

    • ScooterG

      Nine, maybe Mailwise.

      • Renan Lazarotto

        does Nine support Gmail? because it looks like its exchange only

        • ScooterG

          G-Apps only.

    • EmailPro

      I can highly recommend Aqua Mail. It's very stable, highly customizable and the developer is very responsive.
      Try it out and go for the pro version. You will never look back if you want to be efficient with emails!!

      • Renan Lazarotto

        I'll try it, thanks!

    • browngeek

      Like many others I've tried CloudMagic, Mailwise and Nine. I ended up stumping up the cash for Nine. Mailwise, is pretty solid and its free. However for me I'm not a fan of conversation view for my work email and Mailwise only supports this view. Nine support is excellent it has a bunch of additional features. It seems to be a clone of the stock email app with a whole bunch of additions and tweaks though.

    • Jason Bourne

      Personally... I use Mailbox for Gmail and MailWise for Outlook. I prefer keeping my work and personal emails separate.

  • Jason Bourne

    The main reason I dropped CloudMagic is because when they added the "Cards" interface, they removed the "double tap to zoom" feature when reading an email. Honestly, I could care less about the "Cards" -- I just want to read my emails and get on with my life.

    • Chirag N R

      Got your point. We will let "double tap" to zoom, in one of the future releases. Will keep you posted.

      Chirag from CloudMagic

  • rob damiani

    Love Cloudmagic but i personally find the "Cards" gimmick to be completely useless.

    • Jason Bourne

      100% agree. I want a way to disable "Cards".
