New to Spark, but…..


I use several email clients due to work, my own business, personal, etc. To say I despise the Gmail format is an understatement, so I was looking for something relatively user friendly, streamlined, and fast to manage, as I have planned to incorporate all these emails into one client by “forwarding.” I am trying Spark after using Outlook for yeasrs. I like a lot of the customization of Spark, but where it shines for me is the ability to customize the “swipe” feature. I can move emails around immediately without going to the ribbon IF I customize it to suit my own needs.

Yes, you have to take some time to learn the mechanics of it, and yes you have to customize it, and YES it’s a learning curve (albeit not a steep one). I’ve had it for less than two weeks and the only bit I don’t use yet is where I might connect it to a “note” app. For me, I would have liked to see a “Notes” feature inside Sperk to activate shoudl I choose instead of using one of these other programs, but I get that this would work for many folks…..I’m not one of them, though, as my notes are really quick and short (think stickies more than notebook notes).

That said, it’s not a heavy user program, IMO. It’s for those of us with short message needs and to keep our heads above water with all our clients. In that, I think it’ll be a keeper. (and let’s face it….ANYTHING is better than the Mac’s mail app—or at least I think so).

Continual Improvement


I’ve tried many different e-mail programs and I’m very happy with Spark. I needed something which would work offline, Mac Mail is too limited, Postbox didn’t have some features I wanted. After using Postbox for about 1 year I happily switched to Spark a year ago and I really enjoy the Schedule Later feature to send email within office hours when I write messages outside of office hours. I also like the Snooze, to make sure messages don’t get lost in the Inbox and finally the Remind Me feature is absolutely a saver. I don’t have to use a to-do or some sort of reminder, it lets me know if an important message was responded to in a time frame I set.

Many of these features are available on the Google Mail web client, but I am often not connected to the internet, so Spark works great.

Four stars instead of Five? Lately there is a delay when writing emails or switching to the app. The colorful (dreaded) Mac pinwheel spins for what feels like too long, sometimes in the middle of writing a message. I have plenty of RAM, HD space, update OS, so I’m not sure what’s causing this. However, the Spark team has been good at updates and improvements to I’ll wait this out for a while.

Really good client, still waiting on some features


Overall, Spark is excellent. Organization of emails and the Smart Inbox are incredible. The search is more powerful than any other client I’ve used. It has swipe customization and the smart inbox groupings make it easy to archive a pile of emails in a second.

There are a few things I’m still waiting on though. One is the actual mail pane. This is where Spark actually loses functionality rather than simply leaving out some luxuries. It needs some work. Scrolling and zooming are rather buggy. With Spark, I don’t need to open half of my emails, but the ones I do are rather difficult to work with at times, especially on my smaller laptop screen where I don’t want to expand the pane.

The other features are all regarding continuity. Spark for iOS is pretty great too, but the apps are inconsistent with eachother. Search history isn’t synced between apps and the iOS version doesn’t have a “recently seen” tab at all, so I defintely can’t quickly bring up an email that I just saw and archived from my phone. The appearence is also pretty different. Seeing the two apps work together a bit more would be excellent.
