Thanks. I missed that. I’ll be interested to see how well it handles previously-created user folders, and search - two must-have features for me.
As I mentioned it resembles Unibox a bit. I own Unibox on Mac and iOS and I occasionally pop into it because it’s super easy to select all emails from a single user and perform actions on them, which I need to do from time to time. But that app has a lot of limitations and hasn’t been updated in 18 months, so I could never use it for everyday use. Mail Pilot looks much more powerful and capable.
Update: when the service/apps become available pricing will be $4.99/month. Because it doesn’t access the contents of your mail search is apparently only available based on subject-heading. Not sure how that search limitation could work for me.
It’s going to have to be a damn good app for 60 bucks a year.
Not sure how that search limitation could work for me.
You as well as many others. Full search is essential for the average user and after the
early adopters bump the service the next wave of users need to have as few limitations as possible
or that $4.99 will be a mental anchor ready to be cut loose.
Got an invite code.
Right away, I’m asked to subscribe on a plan before I can even download and test anything, and enter my credit card details.
Not a chance in hell.
I know the first week is free and I can cancel, but configuring and trying email software already has enough of a switching cost. Let me download the software, try it for seven days and please, do deactivate it if I don’t have a paid plan, but asking for my payment details up front is a really dumb commercial strategy, and a huge failure when facing Hey.
Thanks, but I’ll pass.
I tried the beta. It is really a beta and I don’t think you should pay a subscription for testing it. However, the client itself looks very promising and if its development continues in its current course, I will probably switch from MailMate since Mail Pilot seems to just better fit my workflow and quickens my work with emails while looking great. But there is no roadmap …
There is no image (tracker) blocking, main compose window is basic without markdown, I had trouble loading my email signature and I miss support for working with attachments and emails outside MP (hopefully some kind souls will make some actions through URL schemes).
