    "Kiwi offers amazing additional functionality for gmail. It's very strange that Google hasn't implemented these types of functions themselves. The solution page is rather basic and sparse, but it links to the Kiwi homepage, which has more video descriptions of the product. It is hard to grasp everything Kiwi can do without seeing it in action. "

    The best third-party email client for Mac. More versatile and complete that it seems at first glance. You'll get a powerful email client with a lot of exclusive feautures such as support for composing messages in Markdown.

    "This app is a big improvement over the standard Apple mail box. It allows you to gather all the various emails from outside Apple like Gmail and Yahoo accounts. Maybe the best part is how you can unsubscribe to junk things right in the app without having to go to various sketchy websites on your phone. It archives easily and with it's 'select all' feature you can get rid of all your emails in one shot instead of clicking on dozens of boxes. It's a very good app for Iphone."

    "I have tried a few different email apps and have been disappointed until I found Type Mail. I had to turn off email notifications because they were very disruptive and rarely important. I love that this app shows me only the emails that I need now. I'm no longer bothered by the low priority emails and I'm immediately informed about the urgent ones. I highly recommend for anyone who has a busy inbox like mine and really needs to stay on top of it."

    "Inbox by Gmail helps solves a lot of my problems that I had with the basic version of Gmail. It is easier to schedule appointments and the opportunity to be constantly reminded of the approaching deadlines makes my life easier. I can not think of anything else like this. I've used this email service to end my tardiness at job interviews. "

    "I have a Gmail email account where I receive important messages about my business so I needed a way to be notified when I get emails from certain senders. Mail for Android Wear & Gmail has a way to customize vibrations or sounds for incoming emails from certain senders, which is great. What is not great is its only for Android and I have an iPhone so it useless to me."
