Introducing Taskbox, Sparrow’s latest rival

If you’ve ever used Apple’s Mail application, you’ll know that it is quite a confusing piece of software. I use email on a regular basis, and still don’t really know my way round the app. Happily, help is on hand, from the likes of Sparrow and Gmail. The trouble is, while Gmail is fine if you have a Google mail account, it’s useless if you have multiple email addresses, and the situation could be even worse for Sparrow users, as nobody knows how Google’s purchase of the email client will affect users of Sparrow.

Fortunately though, there’s a new kid on the block, and it’s attracting plenty of attention. It’s called Taskbox, and as you’d expect, it’s the latest alternative to Apple’s miserable Mail application. “So”, you may be wondering, “what makes this any different from my other email apps?” Well, it’ll offer you much more organization than the standard iOS Mail app, as you can set priorities, due dates and even create assignments to help you understand what you’re looking at,instead of seeing a chaotic splodge of mail on your screen.

At the moment, Taskbox is still in beta testing, but you can still download version 1.0 on the App Store, so if you looking for a new email client, go and check it out, and if you like it, go and contribute to its KickStarter page, which is running until the end of the month.

Check out the Taskbox preview below:

    Does this mail client supports push notification?

    I dont really understand what you find confusing about the mail app. It is so straightforward to use. This new app does more but doesn’t that actually make the Apple mail app simpler and less confusing?

    @gotetrunks I’m afraid I don’t know for sure, but since it’s a mail application, I’d say that it’ll almost certainly support push notifications.

  • Cameron Buchan

    I find Apple’s Mail application very cluttered and difficult to read, as far as writing emails, it’s fine, but other features can be hard to use, and finding emails can be pretty strenuous.

    @Cbuchan Sparrow does not support push notification… (they promise they would add this function… but you know as it ends: they cut the price of theirs apps the week before they announce they would go with google. So onest people.)

    @Cbuchan Got it. More features would be better especially for ipad use.
