After 3 years of betas, K-9 Mail gets an update with tons of new features

While most Android users are satisfied with Gmail, power users look for something a little more tailored to their needs. One of the most popular alternatives is K-9 Mail, an open source client focused on interoperability and easily handling multiple accounts. The last time the app had a stable release was way back in September of 2018, working on a beta for an extensive overhaul in the meantime. Yesterday the stable update to 5.8 finally dropped.

Five powerful email clients for Android (that aren't Gmail)

While many of us default straight to Gmail out of simple convenience, there are meaningfully good and powerful email clients available for Android not made by Google. Here are five that we think stand out for their features, unique capabilities, or appeal to the privacy-minded.

Newton Mail is back from the dead once again

Newton Mail is back from the dead once again

The Newton Mail journey has been something of a rollercoaster ride. The innovative mail client had something of a cult following which it clearly wasn't able to convert into profit so its developers announced that it would shut down back in 2018 right after an unpopular price hike. It was then revived by Andy Rubin's Essential in 2019, but we all know how that worked out. Just when we thought it might have been gone for good, Newton Mail has now been acquired by a couple of users who couldn't bear to see it die.

EasilyDo rebrands itself as Edison and renames its popular 'Email' app to 'Edison Mail'

Earlier this year EasilyDo released a new app for Android, with the descriptive name 'Email.'

It is a popular application. And, today EasilyDo is changing its name to Edison, and 'Email' will now be known as Edison Mail.

MailTime, The App That Lets You Treat Emails Like Instant Messages, Is Now Available For Android

MailTime, The App That Lets You Treat Emails Like Instant Messages, Is Now Available For Android

The Play Store is getting a new email client. Big deal, right? It's not as if we're suffering for lack of options. Well, MailTime, which debuted on iOS in late 2014, is anything but just another entry in a crowded category. For MailTime, emails are just messages, nothing special. You didn't ask for a bunch of metadata, you just got it. The app parses your emails to separate the actual messages from the rest of the clutter.

The primary interface is, at first glance, much like any other email client. You have a list of threads to choose from. But when you open them up, you see an SMS-esque UI that makes it loud and clear that this is not your father's mail app.

[APK Download] Mr. Robot-Approved ProtonMail Gets An Official Android App, But For Some Reason It's Incompatible With Everything

[APK Download] Mr. Robot-Approved ProtonMail Gets An Official Android App, But For Some Reason It's Incompatible With Everything

Since Game of Thrones seems to revel in jerking us around and House of Cards is now disturbingly close to believable, USA's cyberpunk drama Mr. Robot is Android Police's pick for cable TV binge-watching. While it's not so deep in its own hacker lore that it's incomprehensible to the layman, it's surprisingly accurate in its realistic and often low-tech methods of showing hacking and counter-hacking techniques. One of those techniques is using ProtonMail, an encrypted email service that makes FBI analysts shake their fists like cartoon villains.

Considering that ProtonMail claims over a million users for its secure email system, it's kind of amazing that it took them this long to create an Android mail client.

Outlook App Updated To Version 2.0 With A Few Material Design Visual Tweaks And Not Much Else

Outlook App Updated To Version 2.0 With A Few Material Design Visual Tweaks And Not Much Else

Microsoft isn't wavering in its laudable multi-platform support - at this point the company is beating out both Apple and Google in its support for customers on all mobile operating systems. The free mobile version of Outlook first came to the Play Store earlier this year. It's advanced to version 2.0 after a few months, and the developers have added... actually, not much. Certainly not that Sunrise Calendar integration that users of the abandoned app are probably looking for. But we do get a new UI.
