    Anyone using this app yet? I must say it's awesome. I highly recommend it.

    If they add landscape mode, I might just give this app a try.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm waiting to see what Apple does with the native Mail app, specifically in iOS 9. Giving too many developers access to my email is not something I'm into.

    I feel the same way. But I do trust Readdle.

    I started using Spark yesterday, and was really hoping that it would become my favorite iOS email client. Unfortunately, I am unable to connect to my company's Exchange server. When I attempt to add the account and enter my credentials, I get a message telling me to use the "Back" button and select Google from the Connect to Service screen. I don't know the nature of the problem, but it might help if Spark provided the ability to enter specific domain and server settings, as other email apps do. I contacted Readdle tech support, who asked me to turn on "verbose logging" and send them the file it produced. They also asked for my Exchange login credentials so they could test the issue, but I'm not willing to share that information.

    I also had difficulty adding my Outlook email account. If I selected "Outlook" from the Connect to Service screen, the account creation failed. If I selected "Exchange," I was able to add the account.

    I realize the app is new, and I have no doubt that these issues will be resolved in future updates. Spark has some great features, in my opinion, but it's not practical for me in its current state.

    I'm trying this app however there's a few issues that I think need to be fixed. First off there is no way to select all for various actions. Also it does not have a landscape mode, which I like to use.

    I have been using the app and it seems to be pretty great so far other than one major issue. I do not receive notifications for new email nor does it show an unread count in the badge until I open it.

    I've checked my settings and notifications are turned on for the app. Anybody know what I may be missing or having thus same issue?

    FWIW I have the same issue with readdles calendars 5 app. Fantastical will show event counts in the badge right away but calendars 5 I have to open before the badge count updates for the day. Come on readdle! I love the apps but need my notifications/badges.

    Hello

    Yeah I have the same problems with notifications, they are intermittent I always get the sound but never the badge icon

    It seems the app needs to be opened to refresh it then the emails come down if you then exit the app and wait a few seconds the badge icon refreshes with the unread count

    So ts not priceable for me to use at the moment as my main email client, I need to be able to get a notification and a badge icone before I open the app

    Pity really as the app as some good features

    Whats' good: Good organization, easy to get through inbox, read receipts, Apple Watch integration, smart notifications (I don't need to see every email notification).

    Not so good: Problems with Exchange accounts, no landscape/iPad mode, can't act on multiple items (but can act on an entire 'card').

    I really like it though: I use Outlook for work email and calendar and Spark/Fanstastical for personal email/calendar.

    So far the Spark notifications are beating the stock mail app by a fair margin.

    Using it on my iPhone 6 and Watch to triage my Gmail accounts and it's great. Lack of landscape mode and native iPad app are the only irritants at the moment ...

    I agree that landscape mode would be great. Also, I find that pinch-to-zoom doesn't work on all messages, and when it does work, the maximum zoom is inadequate, perhaps only 110-120%.

    Does anyone know how the "snooze" feature is supposed to work? It doesn't move messages out of my gmail Inbox and when the message snooze time arrives, I don't get any notification. Does it behave differently for anyone else?

    I've actually emailed Readdle about the exchange support and they did reply that they're working on it and if I wanted to use my exchange account for testing. It is coming I'm just being patient about it.

    I've been trying both Spark and Outlook for the last couple of days. I really like Spark but anyone notice that it's kind of a battery hog?

    On screen is about the same. Were they used differently in any way?
