Spark has received a version 1.1 update for iPhone which adds email aliases, HTML signatures, new swipe options and much more. Readdle’s free email app for iPhone has been a refreshing welcome in the competitive App Store market. It shipped with a good set of features at launch unlike many competitors who gave up on their apps as time passed. Inbox by Google is another third party email app currently worth using but it is for Gmail users only.
The new release contains several new feature additions and bug fixes. Spark already had a good feature for automatically scanning your emails for your signatures and giving an option to select from them when writing an email. This has been improved to include HTML signatures, with images and links. Swipe options have been added to allow users to customize them for specific actions such as move to Evernote or Dropbox etc. Email aliases with support for iCloud, Gmail and Yahoo now work, this is one of the best additions and rarely found in mobile email apps.
The bug fixes include sync and login issues, along with many others, which should improve the experience for Spark users.
