What is it about?

Dispatch is a slick email client that is perfect for power-users of email. Not only does Dispatch have a simple and clean interface that is gorgeous to look at, as well as basic email functionality, but the real meat of the app lies within the actions. Dispatch has a wide variety of different app integrations so users can treat their inbox like a to-do list, sending off messages to other apps like OmniFocus 2, Things, Evernote, Dropbox, Fantastical, and much more. There are a ton of different actions that the app supports, and it's fully customizable so you can only see the ones you're interested in using. Plus, if you do support emails or something where you send out a lot of the same repeated responses, Dispatch is great because of the snippets feature.

For those who...

  • Need to have snippet shortcuts for frequently-used messages
  • Want to take multiple actions on a message like it is a to-do item

Not for those who...

  • Just need basic email functionality
  • Are not power-users

Why we love it

Dispatch is a great and invaluable tool for those who are power-users of email. Being able to take a myriad of actions on a message and having the option for localized snippets is great when dealing with a ton of emails a day.
