The popular third-party email app Spark has just received a nice update with a big new feature.
With the template feature, you can save time when writing certain emails by using customizable and reusable text blocks. That can come in handy in a number of situations when you write similar emails on a regular basis.
Other new features include the ability to attach video when composing a message and the removal of developer branding in the Quick Replies features
Spark is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
An update for the Mac app is also available to download with the new templates feature.
Back in May, the app was updated to version 2.0 with a big focus on teams. Team members can work together to compose a email in real time. A number of different third-party integrations were added including with Reminders, 2Do, Omnifocus, Things, Wunderlist, Todoist, Asana, Trello, and Bear.
While the app is free, a premium membership is available for $7.99 per user monthly. That will double the amount of storage per team member to 10GB, allow unlimited collaborators, bring team roles and control, and priority support.
The free version has a maximum of 5GB of storage per team member and two collaborators per email.
If you’re looking for an alternative to Apple’s Mail app, it’s hard to go wrong with Spark. The smart inbox separates email into three different categories - personal, notifications, and newsletters. That makes it easy to tackle what’s really important quickly. There are also other great features like email scheduling and snooze.
