There are a ton of Gmail app alternatives for the iPhone. From Mailbox to Boxer, there are some amazing apps that let you check and manage your Gmail inbox from anywhere. Here’s that list. Check out:
Best Alternatives to iPhone Gmail App
Triage does not display traditional mailboxes, folders and messages in form of list. Instead you tackle emails in the form of a stack of cards. Swipe gestures let you archive an email or “keep” (which is similar to mark as read).
The good thing about Triage is streamlined functions: you can archive, mark as read or reply to the email all within the same layer. That makes email productivity faster (when you’ve got only a dozen or so emails to take care of).
Mailbox aimed to create a revolution in Inbox Zero through its innovative use of swipes, snoozes, and intelligent automation. Mailbox provides a bird’s eye view of the conversations with easy search functions. What is even more interesting is that Mailbox inclines towards email productivity right from the start. The flat interface and the quick, gesture-based navigation makes Mailbox a terrific app to use to achieve Inbox Zero.
