Managing emails is an important part of living in the digital era, and what better way to send and receive those emails than through that tiny computer that fits inside your pocket (aka your smartphone). Thankfully, there are plenty of apps for Android that you can use to manage your personal and work-related emails. Some of them come courtesy of big-name developers and allow you to manage your inbox with greater precision, while others, instead, focus on offering detailed push notifications support for aging platforms such as Exchange 2003 and 2007. Below are some of our favorites, so you need not fret when you step away from your desktop.

Alto Mail

Alto is a modern take on email built by an email pioneer — AOL. The app is available for both iOS and Android, and the great thing about it is that it supports a range of different services, including Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, AOL, and iCloud. In other words, you should be able to manage all your email addresses within the one app. Another great thing about the app is that it’s not here to reinvent how we manage email; it’s here to make emails as easy as possible. That doesn’t mean that the app doesn’t comes with its own cool features, however. It can scan your emails for things like shipping details, and then present that information in a Dashboard similar to that of Inbox by Google.

Gmail

This one is obviously a classic, and it’s used around the world for good reason. Gmail is one of the simplest email apps around, yet its real advantage is how integrated it is with Android and Google Assistant. Want to view your flight information from a confirmation email? Simply swipe over to Google Now! Interestingly enough, you’re also no longer limited to using only Gmail email addresses in the Gmail app. You can now add addresses from the likes of Yahoo and Outlook, meaning that you can manage all your emails from a single hub.

Inbox by Gmail

Inbox is Google’s attempt at changing how we use our emails. The app turns them into more of a to-do list than simply a big box of mail. Not only that, but the service can smartly group your emails into bundles, meaning you can dismiss all those annoying promo emails at once, or set up a reminder for a later time. These bundles fall into seven categories — Purchases, Finance, Social, Updates, Forums, Promos, and Low Priority — and Inbox tweaks the controls to allow for a host of different actions. While you can still delete emails, the app generally has you archive emails by marking them as “done.” You can also “pin” emails to top of your inbox as a reminder for later.

TypeApp Mail

TypeApp Mail, also known as TypeMail, is a well-rounded app that offers most features you would expect from an email app. It supports nearly every major mail type, for instance, along with push notifications, email “clusters,” and support for Android Wear. The best thing about the app, however, is how the app presents these features. The app features a beautiful designed despite how many quick-access features there are, and gives the user a quick and easy way to access and manage their emails from their phone.

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook has long been the go-to email client for many people. Becuase so many people use it on their computers, many also want to use it on their phones as a way to more easily sync their emails and email folders between multiple systems. Outlook for Android isn’t just about syncing, however. The app allows you to create customizable swipe gestures and use an integrated calendar view — it also supports a number of the more popular email types. Outlook is clearly built around functionality, and while it’s not the most beautiful app around, it’s still one of the most productivity-focused.
