I just download the desktop version of it and it is very simple to configure and use it. I will recommend it to my client for sure. Thanks to makers.

I didn't like the new experience. They tried to change the status quo but it didn't connect with me.

Gorgeous, seamless UX, from the motion design to the content. I can see myself using this for the long haul.

I have been using Spark for over 6 years, in my opinion it is the best email client for teams and individuals. I have tried many other email apps including Outlook, gmail, Airmail, Apple mail, Thunderbird, Polymail and Edison mail. Spark is unique in the way it categorizes emails into email groups, such as newsletters and notifications, and a grouping for priority senders. They recently added a gatekeeper which can block spam domains and they never get to you inbox. An now Spark has an AI feature which can modify your writing in strong or soft ways of your choosing. When I first started with Spark there was a banner when you opened it "Love your email again" and I can say I still love it after all these years. 💛🇺🇦💙

Disappointed in opinionated UX choices and Hey-style changes that attempt to reinvent my email workflow. I gave it a try for a few weeks but went back to Spark 2. Email doesn't need to be solved in such a manner. The best email client is the one that lets me quickly triage, respond and defer messages in a versatile enough way that respects the individual user workflows that have been ingrained for years—if not decades. The only reason I rated it 2 stars instead of 1 is that after the negative feedback and reviews started to roll in they reversed course to keep the older, better app version available and functioning while they worked to restore features that were missing and resolve subscription-based bugs that should have never shipped in the first place. Once I'm forced to leave Spark 2 I'll be moving to Apple Mail or another 3rd party email client. And I'll be disappointed because none of those are as nice as Spark 2, yet all of them (including Hey) are better than this newest iteration.

A really long-time user of Spark. Unfortunately I was unable to use the new spark because it was super slow and the experience was confusing. I had to delete it from my phone and revert back to Spark 2 on my Mac.

Problems with crashes in Windows client. It is impossible to use. User friendly interface and like the AI under the bonnet. I will continue to use as a client for iOS device but will look for another solution for Desktop.

I was coming back to Spark after a 1 year break and I am underwhelmed by the redesign. All the things I like (sidebar menu, the swipes) are gone. It looks like Gmail now. I don't see a reason to use it anymore.

Spark was great until v3 took away their attention from fixing bugs in v2 and killed the third column in v3. Because of the lack of 3 columns, it is pretty much unusable on a tablet or laptop. Sparks support team has always been a, “that’s great; we’ll tell our product manager” and then nothing happens. This seems to be happening with the third column, which is disappointing. I switched to Canary mail, which has its own set of issues as they try to throw AI at everything, but if you turn all that off and customize the toolbar a bit, you get what Spark was with 3 columns.

Hi Brad, thank you for the feedback. We are currently working on the 3-column view, and we hope to launch it in the end of February - hope you can come back to take a look once it's done. If you wish - we can even share with you some work-in-progress mockups to get your feedback on them (but I think we might release it to the beta soon so you can test it live)
