Aquamail for iOS
« on: February 13, 2017, 12:39:27 am »
Two months ago I bought iPhone 7 Plus, after two days I sold it, I could not resostere after years of Android. One of the reasons was that there is not a mail client like Aquamail.
When can we hope for Aquamail for iOS?

thanks

In 2015, MobiSystems made its OfficeSuite available for iPhone/iPad users. So, it is not inconceivable now that, given its acquisition of Aquamail, MobiSystems will start porting it to iPhone. It would be a wise business decision to broaden the user base.

From the technical point of view, I am not sure how difficult it would be to port Aquamail to iPhone.
The big reason why Kostya wouldn't release the iPhone version on his own is the fact that iPhone doesn't support Java (which is the native coding platform on Android). For that you can thank Steve Jobs: http://www.iphonefaq.org/archives/9731
