What's New in Version 1.3.0

Was working fine until the most recent update
I switched from Outlook to Spark and had no big complaints.. a few small things were somewhat annoying, like automatically marking messages as read, or the way that forwarded emails are displayed. But I liked the separation within the smart e-mail and I like that it keeps my “pinned” e-mails in an easily accessible location.
However, I recently updated this when I updated the software on my Mac, and now my Spark is NOT working the way it used to. E-mails take much longer to load/display images, it will take so much longer to just load new e-mails. Every time I send an e-mail, I get a notification 10 minutes later telling me my e-mail did not send.. but then it sometimes sends about 2 hours later! I am not able to download/save attachments in all my e-mails, and overall, Spark is now just so much slower and not as helpful as before.
Tried contacting support and they haven’t gotten back to me yet, but I tried re-installing this application and nothing has changed. Really do not want to go back to Outlook but this is SO annoying….
Not bad… but could be better
I have been using this app for a week or so now. And for now I can only give it two stars. There are a couple things missing to make this software better. Now, maybe I’m missing something in the prefs for getting this app to do what I want it to do, but the first issue is, I like my emails to stay UNREAD until I mark them as read. It drives me nuts to constantly keep marking (and remarking) them as unread. Issue number two is that there is no “send again” or “resend” feature. If I have a customer that doesn’t see there email, or accidentally deletes it, or whatever; if I don’t hear from that client after a few days, I send the email again. Sometimes those emails are lengthy and usually have attachments. I really don’t want to have “rebuild” that email. Last issue: I sent a message about these “missing” items to support a week ago and still haven’t heard back from them. So, for now, I have to say, for now, that I’m not “Loving” this email app. Put these two features in and I’ll give it a better review in the future.
Surprised to Really Enjoy an Email App
I’m honestly surprised to really enjoy an email application. I’ve used Apple’s Mail application for years on botht he Mac and on iPhone and never really expereinced anything wrong with it like some other users. This is probalby because I primarily use iCloud for my email. With that said, I decided to try spark after seeing it featured on the app store. Since I opened it for the first time, it has become my default email application. I haven’t opened Mail once since that time.
Mystery favorite parts are: how quickly and intelegently it searches my inboxes and the smart way that it categorizes my emails into Notifications, Newsletters, and ‘Personal.’ It has really helped me focus ont he emails that really need my time now vs things that I can and would rather view later.
A secondary piece that works better for me than other options is ‘pinning’ emails. I’ve always tried to flag emails in Mail and previously Outlook but that has never kept me on task with those emails but having these categories in one place really keeps them front of mind for me.
Really great application.
