Spark has just released an iPad version of the app, just in time for Mailbox to be shutting down. When Spark first launched for iPhone, I reviewed it here and it looked like a very promising replacement. Now Spark is on two platforms and they’ll likely begin working on a Mac version, which is something I definitely need and I’m sure many others do as well.
The app has been making some minor changes since it’s launch last year, along with a few big ones. You now have the ability to choose between a few background colors if you weren’t thrilled about only have one choice. The iPad app runs just as smoothly as the iPhone app and the sync process has been great. With the iPad app comes the addition of a widget that pops up on the left side, allowing you to view a calendar, attachments, and more. You can customize it to your liking and add more personalized options.
There seems to always be work that needs to be done with email clients and Spark has some competition now with Outlook and Airmail being some favorites and Polymail is a new app that is currently in alpha, waiting to be released. Spark is in a great spot right now and it will be interesting to see what they come up with for the Mac app and how they improve on iOS. You can get the app here.
