Edit: Great app run by morons. I started paying for it when it was on special for $20 something, and I have to say I'm happy. It's a great app that works beautifully. I am rather surprised that I came back at all after the way I was treated with the hand over from cloud magic, but the 50% off made it worthwhile. I think this might be used as a case study in how not to manage an app.
You know an app is going downhill when it tells you "service has degraded" and if you want basic core features like push notifications you need to pay a subscription $388 per year. To make things worse I didn't find out until I had missed a few days worth of emails. Been a loyal fan since cloudmagic, sad to see what it has become. I will be uninstalling after submitting this review.
I'm wondering whether this is a college project to see what happens when you do certain things to a successful app. It appears all 3+ reviews are either: 1) leftover from the predecessor CloudMagic (awesome app); 2) app stakeholders; 3) tricked idiots blowing money on features widely available for free. So, don't be fooled- K-9 mail I love (super powerful & completely free open source), BlueMail I haven't tried but looks good, &, of course, there's always Gmail or stock apps.
Stopped notifying me of new emails. I've used Newton for over a year and the past few days I've gotten no email notifications yet when I check, I clearly have new emails. I'm pissed and will be switching to a different app. Not paying your extortion fees. $$$
Cloudmagic was far and away the best mail app, and it's really sad to see where it wound up. I understand one-time purchase, and maybe even a very small amount monthly for server fees and payroll, but it's ridiculous to give legacy users no better options and charge large fees just to get basic options back.
I need to pay $50/yr just so I can get push notifications? Moved to Alto. They have a nice Material Design and Bundled Notifications are coming soon. Best of all, it's free, and not $50/yr.
