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

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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    But just so you know the "load images" banner overlaps with the bottom row buttons

    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

    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

    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...

    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!
