The one thing just about everyone does on their mobile phone is read email. We reached out to the community of android users to find out what email client Everyone Is Using And Why? We asked people, which do you find the most accessible or usable? Which have that special feature you just can't live without? Is there a specific task one is particularly exceptional at accomplishing or is there a specific situation where 1 is better than the other.

@Paris Geek:
I've made the same experience in my environment ( family, friends, colleagues).
However, I'm pretty sure that the members of 'inclusiveandroid.com' are mostly very experienced Android users  8)

In Android world, the first app they mention is the mail app installed by vendor (Samsung, LG, etc.)
Second: Gmail (it's free and works well - all unread/starred messages are displayed in a glance -- those users do not know that it's clould based)
Third: Typeapp / BlueMail/ TypeMail  (it's free, with snooze actions, is cloud based so the user gets all unread/starred messages in a glance)

Yes, I'm sure it's something like this...

They may or may not be very experienced, but it's a community with some additional challenges, where accessibility features are important. That's something about which most of us (except those who learned it for one reason or another) have a very vague idea.

Based on those ratings, I suspect Kostya is well aware of how to make an app accessible.
(Or, otherwise, he has a great intuition.)

In either case, congratulations to Kostya for the job well done!

It's just the willingness to 1) listen and 2) do the work. Nothing special.

Re: Typeapp / BlueMail/ TypeMail  (it's free)

They're keeping it free this long?

My, their backers have deep pockets, maybe hoping for a number compared to what Accompli / Outlook went for.

Or what Swiftkey succeeded to do: offer the app for free two years ago, then sell it to Microsoft for millions of dollars.

Yes, that's what I meant.

Congratulations and well deserved Kostya!  But even more appropriately, thank you for creating such a great app.
