Dispatch: Email meets GTD with TextExpander snippets
By Clean Shaven Apps
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Dispatch makes it easy to act on emails even when you're on the move.
It lets you get rid of mails by swiping, respond faster with snippets, and process your mails with other apps.

IT'S OK TO MAKE MISTAKES
Getting rid of mails is fun in Dispatch.
But in case you get too excited with the housekeeping, you can always undo your last delete, archive or move action (for about 4 seconds).
BACKGROUND FETCH, NOTIFICATIONS AND BADGES
Fetches* and notifies you of new emails when possible, even if Dispatch is not actively running. Optionally, choose to badge up Dispatch with the number of unread emails for all or just some of your accounts.
* This is NOT push. The background fetch interval is determined by iOS based on frequency of usage and other factors. We have no plans for push.
FIND WHAT YOU NEED
Search your Inbox and Archive folders. Narrow down the email you're looking for by building up multiple search terms, eg. Sender contains 'John', Recipients contains 'Sharon', and Subject contains 'Meeting'.

I would like to use provide an honest review as this app is definitely not cheap and I hope this will help others before they decide to buy it. In terms of overall design and productivity, this is a great app. And if you also value your privacy this is the app to get as it does not save any emails or login information on a server/cloud.
But the problem is that it doesn’t work all the time. It crashes a lot when you move between different folders, usually you need to “pull to refresh” in order for the folder to show you the correct emails, and background update of badges and notifications don’t really work. And since it is created by only 2 developers customer support is pretty much zero. I have tried many times to contact them via the app and on twitter but haven’t received a single response so far.
But to be fair, I must say that the app does perform better on my iPad Pro (doesn’t crash as much as on my iPhone SE), but badges and notifications don’t work.
Really nice but where is the Print button?
Still no print ability. Sad. Still no response. Really too bad. So much potential in this app.
Dropped from 5 stars to 1. iOS 9 and new version crash on startup on both iPhone 6 and iPad. Deleting and rebuilding fixed my iPad but I DON'T want to do it all over again on my phone! Support nil as before.
First, support is nonexistent and non-responsive...otherwise it would be 5 stars.
That said, this mail app has a really nice work flow and allows rapid "dispatch" of your mail. The only glaring omission is the lack of a print button to help dispatch of some mail. While I don't print to paper I do use Printopia on my Mac to print/archive PDF versions to a document database. Works great from Mail or Mailbox but is glaringly missing from Dispatch. I'm hoping it's just me not looking in the right place but so far, no joy. I use the app as my main mail app but it's sad that I have to leave for another app just to print or save and image to the camera roll.
I'd buy it again but it's sad that support requests are not honored or even acknowledged. Must be a small shop. They continue to update app so there is at least that.
Tried them all.
Spark, Cloud Magic, Boxer, Air mail, Outlook (you get the idea). All great apps making short work of email when setup correctly. For me, however, and this comes down to personal preference, Dispatch is the only one I've landed on over and over on the IOS platform. Surprising, Dispatch even beats out mail clients with corresponding Mac programs (Airmail is very powerful and comes in at a close 2nd - especially patterned with they're Mac email client). For the iPhone, however, nothing quite comes as close to perfection as Dispatch.
