Newton, one of the best email clients for the Mac, is now available for Windows 10. Newton (previously CloudMagic) is a cross-platform email client that’s also available on Android and iPhone. Today, the company is launching its official Windows 10 app on the Windows Store, and it’s really good.
I have used Newton on my Mac in the past and recently got to try out the beta of its Windows 10 app as well. While Windows 10’s stock Mail and Calendar is pretty great, there’s a serious lack of well designed and feature mail apps in the operating system. Outlook 2016 sports a lot of features, but the app has a cluttered user-interface that’s not too perfect for many regular users. Newton is exactly the opposite of Outlook 2016: it has a clean design with a bunch of modern features.
Newton has a built-in Send Later feature that effectively lets you schedule emails to be sent later. This feature doesn’t require you to keep the app open all day, so once you schedule an email, it’ll be sent regardless of whether you have the app opened or not. Newton also includes a neat feature that lets you easily get some quick information about a sender of an email without you needing to open up a search engine. Other things like Read Receipts are also integrated but you’ll need to manually ask for a read receipt every time you send a new email.
There’s a big catch though: Newton is a subscription-based email client and it costs quite a lot: $49.99 a year (that’s nearly the same price as Office 365 Personal). You can get to try out all the features for free for 14 days, but to continue using it you’ll have to sign-up for a $49.99 yearly subscription. If you think that’s a reasonable price or just want to try out the trial, you can grab Newton from the Windows Store below.
