Dispatch: Email meets GTD App Description

Dispatch makes it easy to act on emails even when you're on the move. It lets you get rid of mails by swiping, respond faster with snippets, and process your mails with other apps. WHAT REVIEWERS SAY ------- "App Store Best of 2013" in 5 countries "Everybody is trying to revolutionize email these days… For me, it has succeeded." — Federico Viticci, MacStories.net "The best iPhone email app for power users" — Robert McGinley Myers, The Sweet Setup "Dispatch is the iPhone e-mail client I have been looking for for years" — Charlie Sorrel, Cult of Mac "Dispatch is quite possibly the best third party email client I've ever used for iPhone… If you're buried in emails, you need this app now!" — Allyson Kazmucha, iMore.com RESPOND FASTER WITH SNIPPETS ------- Typing the same thing over and over again? Store frequently used replies as snippets* and reuse them the next time you get a similar question. Heck—we even say 'Hi' for you when replying an email so you can cut to the chase. * Dispatch also supports “TextExpander touch snippet expansion” (sold separately). ACTION-BASED EMAIL ------- Dispatch talks to 55 apps. For example, you can: • Archive important mails to Evernote • Save links to read later with Pocket • Create tasks in OmniFocus & Things • Set reminders in Reminders or Due Other apps include: 1Password, Asana, AppigoTodo, 2 Days, 2Do, Appigo Todo, Asana, Box, Chrome, Clear, Dolphin Browser, DashPlus, Drafts, Droplr, Evernote, Facebook, Fantastical, Finish, Google Maps, Google Translate, HockeyApp, iCabMobile, Instapaper, Message, Mercury, Omnifocus, Pinner, Pinbook, Pinswift, Pushpin, Pocket, Pocket Informant, Readability, Reminder, Safari, Skype, The Hit List, Things, Trello, Todoist, Toodledo, Twitter, Wunderlist. See http://www.dispatchapp.net/apps for full list. IT'S OK TO MAKE MISTAKES ------- Getting rid of mails is fun in Dispatch. But in case you get too excited with the housekeeping, you can always undo your last delete, archive or move action (for about 4 seconds). BACKGROUND FETCH, NOTIFICATIONS AND BADGES ------- Fetches* and notifies you of new emails when possible, even if Dispatch is not actively running. Optionally, choose to badge up Dispatch with the number of unread emails for all or just some of your accounts. * This is NOT push. The background fetch interval is determined by iOS based on frequency of usage and other factors. We have no plans for push. FIND WHAT YOU NEED ------- Search your Inbox and Archive folders. Narrow down the email you're looking for by building up multiple search terms, eg. Sender contains 'John', Recipients contains 'Sharon', and Subject contains 'Meeting'. AND MANY MORE… ------- • Attach inline images from Camera Roll • Alias support: Send and reply from another email address (server permitting) • View the raw source of emails LOCALIZED FOR 10 LANGUAGES ------- Fully localized in English, Deutsch, 日本語, Italiano, Nederlands, Español, Français, Português brasileiro, 简体中文, 繁體中文. COMPATIBILITY ------- Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. Supports IMAP-based email accounts. Tested to work with: Gmail, Google Apps, iCloud, AOL, Yahoo!, FastMail, QQ.com, GMX.com, Openmailbox.org. Users have reported problems with the following services: Office 365, Yahoo Business Mail, Dreamhost, Live.com. We do not recommend buying Dispatch if you're using any of these services. Mail servers not listed above require additional configuration, or may fail to work. LIMITATIONS ------- Please take note of the limitations Dispatch has compared with the built-in Mail app: - No push notifications for emails (no plans for it) - No support for POP/Exchange-based email (no plans for it) - No access to drafts stored in Dispatch from other mail apps - No landscape mode, S/MIME encryption - Can only attach images

  • The only iOS mail app that lets you get work done

    By glyph!
    Updated 2018/11 to remove a star because the lack of updates is starting to degrade its functionality: - the “load attachment” bar overlaps all the action buttons on the iPhone XS Max - still no watchOS 5 compatible update, so it functionally does not include a watch app Despite these shortcomings, this app is still the best way to actually get work done with email on an iOS device, so I *really* hope the developers get it together to put together an update soon. ——— To properly process an email, one needs to be able to quickly: • read it • archive it • delete it • reply to it • create a task from it Every other mail app on iOS does not afford me the option to do the last one. Now when I’m commuting, or stuck in line at the grocery store, I can confidently process my inbox, saving me scads of time when I get back to my desk. Furthermore, it allows you to sort your inbox in the *CORRECT* order, “oldest first”, so you can read and process messages in order, not getting distracted by newer things while you figure out what to do with the older ones. I wish I could give this app five stars. I can’t live without it now. But despite the fact that it implements the critical *core* functionality that Apple, Google, and Fastmail have somehow declined to provide, it falls down pretty hard in other areas: • no editing of the quoted message in a reply, i.e. no inline replying • it crashes when you try to make an event from a date • setup is finicky and opaque; some IMAP servers take three or four tries to connect to for no reason I can discern • displaying photos from contacts fails randomly with no explanation • no VIP notification support • no thread notifications • sort ordering preference doesn't apply in non-inbox mailboxes • messages can’t be cached offline • swipe actions are finicky and don’t seem to trigger consistently There are more bugs that I can’t remember off the top of my head, too. So I really hope the authors of this app give it some maintenance and polish off the sharp corners, because the core experience is still way ahead of any other apps I’ve used.
  • Promise but NO support.

    By Photo_op
    App ‘works’, but Updates are few and far between. AND Support replies are worse. So much potential and so much loss revenue. Hard to figure?
  • No drafts

    By u4828478200194177475291
    You kidding, can’t save drafts even if you swipe left and press save?
  • Well made, but out of touch....

    By Sean&Devon
    This needs a big huge update. The developers did a fantastic job, BUT I feel they are out of touch with the amazing developments included in other mail apps. I think an overhaul with more capability and easier dispatching would be great. Again the concept and much of the app is great, but there seems to be missing some heart and soul in further development of the app. This could be a 10/10, but I say a 5/10 right now. Hopefully they can talk to their customers and see what they want added. Not trying to tear them down because I so badly want them to build it better! For the non-power user I say this is a great app. - update: they just won’t work on this app and nobody knows why. This is THE app that most power users would happily pay more money to have updates, I know that. C’mon guys, please. Thanks!
  • Does not work

    By Mmmmmiiiiikkkkkeeee
    I hace attempted to set up the me.com account unsuccessfully with regular or advanced settings. Worthless app, and a waste of money.
  • Impossible to install on iPad

    By Lawrence Golfer
    No instructions that help.
  • So uneven

    By Technologizer
    There are flashes of genius in this app, like the snippets and ability for it to automatically fill in a salutation. But it’s missing basic stuff such as real attachment support, and is extremely buggy. Something you pay for should be far more stable.
  • Still the best

    By radiophage
    Thanks to the devs for making my life better (literally, because so many hours are consumed by email). I love the simple interface with so much flexibility in Settings. I’m not a fan of focused inboxes, snoozing emails, and all those other distractions. Dispatch gives me unparalleled connectivity and reliability, even across multiple accounts, email aliases, and the correct URL scheme for Mailmate on the Mac. Still the best for the email power-user or anyone drowning in too many messages.
  • Missing one very useful feature

    By hutchilopostl
    Great app. Would have given five stars if one could triage from the subject list, instead of having to open the email to triage it. Often one to triage simply based on the subject line.
  • Updated Review

    By Nick213465
    I last reviewed this app in October 2016, and to be honest nothing much has changed since then. I moved to many apps like Outlook, Gmail, Spark and Airmail. I decided to try Dispatch again as I noticed that there was a new update for the iPhone X which I own. It is more stable now and doesn't crash that often on my iPhone X. Search has improved as well. I like that this app does not support "push notifications" as no emails/data is stored somewhere in the cloud (other than my email service provider). The biggest problem I have with the app is that there is still no support to attach files!!! I hope this can be implemented (along with drag and drop features on the iPad for file attachments).
