Despite the widespread use of instant messaging apps, I use emails daily for all the communications I define not private. To this category I associate all university contacts or emails I exchange with readers of the blog, who contact me for clarifications on the topics covered on the site and beyond. On Mac I have been using the app for years Mail, integrated into the operating system, to manage my addresses, but since I started using more than one e-mail account, I had considerable problems of reliability, with the boxes that gave me daily synchronization error messages.
Minimal graphic interface
Unlike the app Mail of Apple, which tries to present the user with different information on the main screen such as the list of emails, a preview of the selected email, the different mailboxes configured plus a series of buttons to perform different types of actions, CloudMagicthe email client for Mac, presents a screen containing only the list of emails present in our inbox. After configuring email addresses (accounts are supported iCloud, Gmail, Google Apps, Office 365, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail / Outlook, Exchange is Imap), by means of a recallable sidebar on the left, you can choose to view a single email account or a unified inbox with all the emails of the mailboxes inserted in the app.
Using CloudMagic email client for Mac
To make it easier to use emails, onCloudMagic,the email client for Mac, have been integrated some comfortable keyboard shortcuts. For example, in the list of emails it is possible to scroll through the different items using the arrows Up is Th, to be able to open a single email by pressing enter. To scroll through the emails you can use the side arrows, while to compose a new email simply press the combination cmd + n.
An aspect that I appreciated of CloudMagic push synchronization with mailboxes, with the possibility of receiving notification even when the app is closed. Parallel to the lapp Mail from Apple, with the latter I could decide how often to refresh emails, and to receive notification of new emails I had to leave the app active in the background. With CloudMagic instead the process of receiving and sending a new notification is pushed.
This means, first of all, that we will be notified in real time when a new e-mail message is received. Furthermore, even if the app is closed, we will still receive a new notification. I think this is an aspect that should not be underestimated, as, at least in my case, it allows me to keep a less app open in the background that consumes resources and battery.
When we start to use CloudMagic we can decide to create a new account linked to the app. This allows us to keep all accounts and settings in sync with apps for Android and iOS. This means that, after installing the app on both a new Mac and a smartphone or tablet in our possession, by logging in with our account we will have everything configured, without having to make a new configuration from scratch. An aspect to keep in mind if you have multiple devices all connected with the email accounts that we use daily.
Although the email client for Mac has just been released, the experience accumulated with the development of CloudMagic for mobile platform it makes the first releases of the desktop client very mature. If I have to find negative sides, I was quite surprised by the lack of alias management, a feature found in many competing apps. I contacted the developers about it and they assured me that they are planning to add this and other additional features.
The app can be purchased on Mac App Store at the price of 19.99. If before making such an expense you want to try with hand CloudMagic, then I suggest you to download the app for free iOS and / or Android. You can find more information on the official site of developers.
