This app changed the way I deal with and interact with email!!!!!

I am a college student and have a few part time jobs which communicate primarily over email... Since most of my projects involve multiple managers I am constantly bombarded by strings of inter-relating emails when they back reference content that has since been lost in my inbox of hell. I also (I guess as a millennial?) dislike using emails as a primary form of communication due to the lack of visibility most of them have.

Hop changed all of that!! Not only giving me the ability to follow the string of a conversation as if it was a text message, but also giving me a window into when my content is actually received by providing read receipts! On top of that it filters out all the junk I receive on a daily basis that while I would still like to occasionally read, don’t need in the same area as my work communication.

You fixed what wasn't broken and I'm sad.

Honestly why'd you guys fix something that wasn't broken? This was my goto personal email app specifically because it showed emails like they were text conversations. Unless im missing something it seems like you guys tried to pack 10 pounds of features into a 5 pound bag. You split the text UI of the email off into actual texting with "groups"

WHY are all of you email apps trying to get business people and ITDM's to consider your email app as a solution for a business. I'd be stunned if you were to tell me even a 1/3 of the people using this were using the group chat besides for texting themselves random notes to self... Because I use(d) this for my personal email. I liked the way it interacted. Having a whole new part of your app devoted to "groups" and chats with funny stickers and gifs.. Isn't something I'll use.

If anything that just reminds me that I hardly have a social group because I work 60 hour weeks and during that time I will, like it or not, forever be on Outlook. Stop trying to cram enterprise group coordinating with Slack-like funtionality and a calendar all in such a simple app.

When did we suddenly decide every personal email app also needed Slack and Basecamp and Skype crammed in?

Ugh I hate falling for apps like this. Too young / insecure to know what you're doing right so you do it all wrong instead.

Back to Airmail.

We've shared your feedback with the team.

This app is pretty great

I am an email app junkie. I have spent a lot of time with a lot of apps (Newton, Spark, Outlook, Trove, Astro, Boomerang...I am sure I am forgetting some here). Newton was my all time favorite for awhile but lately has become a bit buggy and slow.

Hop is fantastic. It is LIGHTNING fast. Like the UI is just soup to nuts blazing fast and responsive. The SMS like approach to email seemed gimmicky at first but this is a really great implementation of the idea. Some really interesting ideas around common recipient groups. Search is incredibly quick. Calendar integration works. Love the ability to easily send so many different types of media (GIFs, drawings...). Integrated voice calls (!!). It's packed with good ideas that are uniformly executed perfectly.

Only shortcoming is it uses IMAP for Gmail instead of the Gmail API and my employer (a very large software company) blocks IMAP access so I can only use this for personal email. Ordinarily that'd be a deal breaker for me - I love having one app for all my accounts - but Hop is so good otherwise that I'm using a second app for work email.

If there's any way to support the Gmail API in future I would seriously pay for this app. It's good enough to be worth money (like Newton).
