Dispatch: Email meets GTD
By Clean Shaven Apps
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

RESPOND FASTER WITH SNIPPETS
Typing the same thing over and over again?
Store frequently used replies as snippets* and reuse them the next time you get a similar question.
Heck—we even say 'Hi' for you when replying an email so you can cut to the chase.
* Dispatch also supports “TextExpander touch snippet expansion” (sold separately).

• Archive important mails to Evernote
• Save links to read later with Pocket
• Create tasks in OmniFocus & Things
• Set reminders in Reminders or Due

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'.

What's New in Version 3.3.4
Fixes login issues with Gmail
I had high hopes
From the feature list, I hoped this was the email app that could handle my needs. But some ridiculous problems keeps me from using it. It's going to end up yet another email program in the trash.
When I attach two pictures, the app freezes and has to be forced closed. Pictures are embedded like Outlook instead of attached like most programs. I can't even figure out how to attach other files.
The main reason I wanted it was for Evernote integration. Which was horribly implemented. You have two options: To create a note with an internal link to the email in this app, assuring you that you can't read the note on any other devices or this one half the time. Or, two, to create a note with all of the important stuff jammed into a really long and unusable note title and nothing by the body text in the note section with no context. How about a note formatted like print out with then subject line as a title? How about an option to export it into Evernote as a PDF? Nope.
Maybe I'll try it again in a few versions, but not if they don't fix this.
Best email app, with bonus privacy
Dispatch is a pleasure to use with quick and easy triaging of messages, external integrations, stability, and general good behaviour.
An extra bonus is that they don't upload your email login information (some of the most sensitive information there is!) to their own servers. It's getting very difficult to find email apps that don't take liberties with your email and login information.
Dispatch email is the real thing
Even beyond the incredible stability dispatch displays with my five email accounts, it's expanded choice of integrations along with its highly streamlined simplicity of use, make it one of the best overall iOS email options to consider.
Clearly in my top 2-3 iOS email app experiences.
