Using Hey for almost 2 years for personal usage and I have only good things to say about it, I can't imagine coming back to gmail with it. It takes a bit more time to manage it later when you make it your primary inbox, which may not be for everyone, but if this essential part of your life isn't organized, you can't be as efficient I think. It's a bit pricey which may change once they have more users.

Finally an email service that understands the way we should use email nowadays! It’s simple yet very well thought and saves me a LOT of time

This truly did fix email - once you've tried Hey you can't use any other email client without feeling frustrated

Hey is the email app for those who hate email. It's an opinionated service that offers it's own philosophy for managing email which may or may not work for you. If it doesn't, support will dismiss your feedback and encourage you to adopt there philosophy. The execution of Hey's vision is disjointed with the three main areas of the app each obeying their own user interaction standards. Other basic functions like email rendering, and basic email composition workflows are lacking. Hey LOVES to hide email from you and it does this exceptionally well. So well in fact, I found I was always missing important emails. If you look at an important email once, it just disappears! You have to take manual action each time you view an email to get it to NOT disappear, or just disable the feature for hiding one of the services key(?) value adds.

Overall, the UX is thoughtful and helps with decluttering my i(m)box. I would definitely recommend Hey for people who want a more deluxe email experience (the thread/collection organization features alone are worth the price!). There are a few areas that are less polished (selecting multiple emails, and managing bundled emails, to name a couple), but the team is responsive to feedback so I'm sure it will get even better over time.

I had Outlook and Gmail forever. Hey's re-imagining of the inbox to the Imbox and other features have given me control over email again. Bubble up feature is also very helpful. Now I am starting to use the calendar also. I just wish companies would buy it so I could also use it at work.

This is THE best email service I've ever used. It's easy to use, really beautiful interface, and it works the way I do. If you're looking for an alternative to Gmail or Outlook--and still need to get stuff done--I suggest you check this out.
