Doesn’t worth its price
I thought this app would be like Notify, but it’s not stable at all for the below reasons, I’m switching back to Notify! 1. When I delete an email it doesn't actually goes to the "Trash" folder, tried to check where the emails go when I delete them and found out that when I use a Gmail account, the deleted emails go to the "All Mail" Folder, and when I use an Outlook account, the deleted ones never show under under any folder! tried to search for them but found nothing! (The were permanetly deleted). 2. After adding around 4 email clients (3 Google Apps accounts and 1 Outlook), Mail Call doesn't work properly, and doesn't show any new email and the updating (refresh) button keeps loading forever. 3. Outlook account syncing is really slow. ( after receiving an email in my Inbox, I tried to update Mail Call many times, but by the end it doesn't show that there's any new new email.
I’ve lost too many emails in composition to give this what otherwise would be five stars. It crashes at the worst times. Good as a notifier, and to read, but unless your doing something very short, I would not advise using this app unless you like wasting time, energy, and away.
I like that this app can support Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, and my private IMAP server. It’s just what I’ve been looking for. Well worth the money. Michael
Impressive Notifier for iCloud
The bulk of the email notifiers in the App Store are all Gmail this and Gmail that. What if I don’t, for some odd reason, want to use Gmail? I’ve had a Gmail account since 2005 and it was great until I realized that when they cancelled Google Reader, they could pull the rug out from under Gmail too. They actually did criple push on the iPhone by getting rid of Exchange support on the server side, so now, to get real push, you have to use the Gmail app. They would never cancel Gmail though, as it helps their ad platform (and let’s face it, Google's an advertising company that offers free services to get you to click ads) and I’m also a little tired of the non-standard IMAP implementation, so I went all in with iCloud, and so far, it’s been really solid for me. But…Apple decided, for whatever reason, that Mail must be loaded in order to ping the Notification Center in Mac OS X. This is OK, and I have a new iMac with enough RAM to handle it, but Mail is rather heavy and sometimes I just want to see what’s in my inbox. This does that. To see other emails in other folders, I can open Mail but I only need to do that once or twice a day. This is sufficient.I would add IDLE support so that it truly pushes. The other thing I would include, since this is, you know, a Mac app, is native iCloud set up. The iCloud servers are not a trade secret as I have successfully set up my mail under Evolution in Linux with no problems. Just being able to log in to your iCloud or get the settings from Mail would shave several seconds off the initial experience and differentiate this from the other apps. I spent the 10 bucks and I’m happy so far and because I’m savvy, I got it set up in under a minute. I wonder, how many more people who need this for iCloud would spring if it was included?Anyway, good app all around and I look forward to future updates.
Insecure according to Google
When I tried to set up Gmail with this I was told it is not using the current security standards, and was blocked.Google: "Some devices and apps use insecure sign-in technology to access your data.”
