Good and getting better.
I’ve used Unibox for a week or so. I got it because I always wanted to try a client that would manage emails like texts (messages) in Apple’s Messages app. I’m not disappointed. Unibox does this and find room for innovation along the way.
There’s a learning curve though. Some of the features are in places that are unfamiliar to me — like no other app I’ve used on my Mac. If you can use it for five days or so and catch on to how it works, which is very different from most other popular email apps, then you may find its right for you. Don’t let the price deter you.
And a tip: If you get Unibox and want to run it in a test drive, then I recommed you use it for *just* business, school, or personal — not all at the same time — while you’re learning the workflow.
Lastly, I’ll just mention that its always important to me that the developer keeps working at the app to make good updates and make a version 1 of any app better and better. I’ve not been disapppointed. Unibox just got an update that solved a problem I was experiencing. So I’m rather happy at the moment.
My thanks to eightloops (the developer) for making an app that manages email like no other.
Great App for Personal Email
I purchased this app to manage work email. I found the app to be difficult to work with because of the organization of emails around contacts. It was challenging because many of my emails have several people on the same email for collaboration - so when organized by contact - it split things up.
That said, I now use this email app exclusively on my home computer. I’m very good at keeping my work email inbox to zero (Getting Things Done method). However, my personal email would balloon. I LOVE that this app organizes my personal email by contact - this allows me to easily look at 25 marketing emails from my favorite store and with one right click delete them. I also like that I can quickly glance and find emails from my most important people to respond quickly. Thanks to this app I feel I have a better chance of staying on top of my personal email messages.
I have tried Thunderbird, Postbox, Sparrow, AirMail, and MailPilot - I now only use Apple mail for business and this application for personal emails.
Finally…an email client that makes sense
I use Unibox for all of my email (2 gmail accounts and 2 business office365 accounts). I can’t even imagine using any other email client now. The traditional email clients with group by subject always frustrated me because they aren’t smart enough to know that the same subject line from 2 people not on a group message should not be grouped together. There’s also something very natural about emails being listed by person. It’s ultimately the people that I’m having a conversation with and most likely I need to reference old emails from that person that might not be in the same subject thread. But the single killer feature of Unibox isn’t even the new method of sorting and displaying email. It is the ability to select a person and toggle to all attachments from any email they have sent me. In business, this is invaluable to pull up purchase orders, documents, etc that I could never find in a traditional email program.
