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




  • Used to be the best, but needa some updates

    By NashvilleNate
    Used to be the best, but needa some updates. Was the best email app hands down for awhile. Attachments don't open. Also, could use some updates to the triaging actions. Is development still supported?
  • Decent

    By Stoju
    The whole thing feels a little glitchy. Swiping emails causes a jarring screen shift that makes you lose your place in the inbox. Good features, though.
  • Close but no cigar

    By ctt1wbw
    I want so much to love this app and make it my default app but I can’t. The ability to only show the latest 200 emails is completely pointless. Please please give the ability to download ALL of your emails from every account.
  • My favorite email app

    By Oliver1222
    But just so you know the "load images" banner overlaps with the bottom row buttons
  • Exchange/Advanced/Other

    By fox7rot
    What platforms do you support? I just spent the last 3 days being the bane of my work IT dept. as well as my at-home iOS/PC/Mac Genius' worst nightmare because Dispatch will NOT accept any account via Exchange/Outlook/'other'/business/work info or login. If Dispatch is unable to connect these necessary accounts...why bother using it? - dissapointed - dissatisfied - done
  • My favorite iOS email client

    By Orangeez
    I’ve used a lot of iOS email clients but prefer Dispatch because it allows you to use the default message:// URL scheme when sending messages to other apps (like OmniFocus). This allows me to use the link to open in my default email client on my Mac (MailMate), and sadly isn’t an option in something like Airmail which uses the Airmail:// URL scheme. This means that if I click the message link on my Mac I can only open the message in Airmail, and because I use MailMate I rely on the message:// URL scheme for my workflow. I wish more iOS email clients had this option, but as long as Dispatch does I’m cool.
  • Frustrated that ‘app support’ doesn’t let me contact anyone

    By ukht rita
    I am confused about the x-dispatch:// & message:// links created when I send content to my task manager. Links in either format won’t open the message on my laptop when I’m really ready to dive in. I use postbox, & it appears x-postbox:// will let me open messages from links — any plans to allow these links to be customizable? Without this, dispatch remains useless as a triage tool...
  • Getting better

    By photobraff
    This is a great app and is more functional than most of the other options. The latest update seems to make things more solid. I can now insert photos without the app crashing. It would be great if calendar invites/ics files were able to be opened in a calendar. Also, please optimize for the iPhone X. Thanks!
  • I had high hopes

    By Brynnan
    From the feature list, I hoped this was the email app that could handle my needs. But some ridiculous problems keeps me from using it. It's going to end up yet another email program in the trash. When I attach two pictures, the app freezes and has to be forced closed. Pictures are embedded like Outlook instead of attached like most programs. I can't even figure out how to attach other files. The main reason I wanted it was for Evernote integration. Which was horribly implemented. You have two options: To create a note with an internal link to the email in this app, assuring you that you can't read the note on any other devices or this one half the time. Or, two, to create a note with all of the important stuff jammed into a really long and unusable note title and nothing by the body text in the note section with no context. How about a note formatted like print out with then subject line as a title? How about an option to export it into Evernote as a PDF? Nope. Maybe I'll try it again in a few versions, but not if they don't fix this.
  • Update Made Application Unusable

    Cannot sign in with Google. When I attempt to sign in with my Gmail account the application force closes.
