    Been using Spark email. Tonight switched to Airmail. Holy settings/customization overload LOL

    Like Spark because I liked how it synced emails/all settings through iCoud so I could easily switch devices and seems to work good keeping everything organized when I jump from IPP to 7+ to rMBP but Airmail appears to be able to do same.

    What email client do you guys use?
    I use the Gmail app since Gmail is all I use for email. Who do you use for your email? What's your thoughts on Spark versus Airmail? Are the desktop apps free for both?

    For my email I have 2 accounts with Gmail, one with web hosting I have and a Exchange account for my employer.

    I believe Spark was free for both. Airmail is $4.99 for iOS and like $9.99 for MacOS.

    My thoughts on Spark VS Airmail... Spark just works, works well. What got me looking for third party email client over stock Mail app was the remind me later feature. Starting using Spark and it just had a lot of features I found myself using.

    Airmail so far works good, as I said, it's almost too much if that makes since. Still getting used to it and setting it up etc. Immediate thing I wish Airmail had is a "dark mode" but Spark doesn't have that either.

    Before I could definitely declare Airmail a winner over Spark I need to spend more time with its iPad and MacOS apps. Still trying to figure out the plethora of iOS options LOL.

    This may provide you more insight than I can at moment though:

    Thanks Blaine, I'll take a look at both Spark and Airmail then.

    I completely understand. My work provides for a top shelf phone including a 128GB 7+. I just choose not to carry a work phone. Saves me the hassle😀

    Oh, one other plus I promptly noticed is Airmail allows Touch ID and Spark does NOT.

    That's a good benefit for sure. My phone bill is $236 month on Verizon. Unlimited talk, text, data and hotspot and a $36 dollar or whatever phone payment. I suppose I need to switch from grandfathered unlimited data to Verizon's new plan. I tether to IPP and rMBP a lot and thought of only ten gigs of tethering gets me. Some months I use 50-60-70gigs of data 🤦🏼*♂️

    Works good with wife having ATT though. Between two of us we have coverage coast to coast quite literally though.

    Seriously 80% off on at&t? Am I correct in assuming she works for Walmart since they're the only one I know of who gets that discount. Us at&t employees only get 50% off and the authorized retail and national retail gets 57% off.

    It's all about location! Before I worked for at&t I had Verizon and got almost no coverage in West Virginia, but with at&t I get perfect coverage. What's funny is when I go to Europe it doesn't matter what company I buy a SIM Card from, I get perfect reception in that country on anyone. However here it depends on your location.

    Lol, your correct. She works at their Claims Management location here in town.

    We live just due north of Tulsa so both ATT and Verizon work good where we are. I have Verizon because when I lived in Chanute KS Verizon was all that barely worked haha. So yeah it's weird how much location plays into it. With Verizon my LTE speed is a LOT faster than in town.

    I tried that and literally got yelled at for not answering her calls. She's worse than my ex-fiance when it comes to that. But you're right, it's my personal phone so I choose when I take work rated calls and messages on my personal phone as my company issued phone gets turned off as I'm leaving work.

    Assuming you still have the unlimited data and hotspot plan I'd consider keeping it, and that's coming from an at&t employee! I had that plan up to about two years ago and hated getting rid of it. I keep seeing them listed for sale and keep considering purchasing one and doing an assumption of liability. When I lived in the DC area, all carriers were slow due to congestion, so location is everything.

    I have Verizon but yes have the grandfathered unlimited data/hotspot. Just so expensive compared to the new unlimited. I could cut bill in over half if I switched to new plan. 🤷🏼*♂️

    True, but the plan you have won't throttle, right? It's one of those situations I guess!

    Yes it doesn't throttle. I guess the other debate in my head is... I'm going to be mad when sooner or later they force everyone off the grandfathered unlimited data and make them take new plan and I've been paying all this "extra" the whole time over what I would pay with their new unlimited. A lot of good things being said about Verizon not De-Prioritizing on new plan so maybe I could make it work

    Yeah it's safe to say I don't know what I should do. In mean time I'm going to keep trying to get my $236 a month worth in mean time

    Yeah eventually they'll force people off of the plan one way or another. I'm just wondering when they'll increase the price from $50. If I had an unlimited data plan that didn't throttle and included a hotspot, I'd use that as my home Internet if it was fast enough since I never go over 200GB on my home Internet and data plan.
