    If you use Gmail I would say Inbox. Has most of the same features although no desktop app. Personally I hate desktop email apps so that's not a problem for me.

    Inbox has transformed email for me. I used to painfully sort and filter everything in Gmail and Inbox has shown me how unnecessary that is. Now I actually reach Inbox Zero on a regular basis and it's marvelous.

      FYI for anyone considering Inbox: it's not yet compatible with business accounts (or at least it was this way last I checked).

      Also FYI to anyone using Inbox: we've seen two invoices go missed recently thanks to its bundling/auto-filtering feature :/

        What I've done to combat this issue is turn off bundling in the inbox. I already have filters for promotions and social to get archived immediately, so normally things that come in the inbox are only things that I need. And then about once every other day I go into All Mail and see if there's anything that I might have missed.

        But generally I love Google Inbox, I use it with Mailplane on the Mac. The only problem is on iOS it doesn't show me a notification number on the icon for how many messages are in the inbox. Only the number of unread messages. Which, for me, I use my email as a general to do list, so if there's no number there I won't look at my email. Because of this, I use "Spark" on my iPhone and then Google Inbox on my Mac. It seems to be working well so far. I'm patiently waiting for Spark on the Mac.

      I've been enjoying Inbox + Mixmax together: https://mixmax.com/
