CloudMagic 1.0.8 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)CloudMagic 1.0.8 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 005)

I’m a big fan of the ingenious CloudMagic Search, a free iPhone app that acts as a unified search box for my online services and social media accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, Dropbox, Box, Evernote, SkyDrive, Twitter and many more. Having seeing a couple hundred-thousand downloads, the Palo Alto-based CloudMagic Inc. felt encouraged to apply its cloud search expertise to a lightweight email client.

Meet CloudMagiC Mail, a new iOS email app featuring “fast magical search” that supports a bunch of popular email accounts like Gmail, Exchange, Yahoo, Outlook, Google Apps, Office 365, IMAP and even Apple’s iCloud…

Fans of Google-owned Sparrow or Dropbox-owned Mailbox should feel right at home in CloudMagic Mail. The program features a minimalist user interface and is heavy on gestures so you can swipe over individual messages to delete, file into folders or access additional actions.

As we all organize our emails largely to find the right message at the right time, the apps’ main focus is making cross-service search as reliable, speedy and accurate as possible. As the screenies top of post illustrate, CloudMagic Mail does indeed support a plethora of email services so chances are yours is on the list unless you depend on some really obscure email service.

From what I’ve experienced, search in CloudMagic Mail is awesome.

You can search across all your mailboxes in one go and it’s really fast – the app produces results almost instantaneously, which doesn’t surprise me given they’ve built it on the previously mentioned CloudMagic Search’s proven engine.

I’ll let the promo vid do the talking.

Other features I’m liking: smart search suggestions, unified inbox for all your accounts, complete support for Microsoft Exchange (2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, including ActiveSync, EWS and IMAP), push notifications, offline mode, the ability to set reminders to follow up on starred emails, passcode lock protection, threaded conversation view and move to folders/labels.

That’s more useful stuff right off the bat than in either Mailbox or Sparrow.

CloudMagic is available free from the App Store.

The universal binary weighs in only 6.2MB and supports natively iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running iOS 6 or later.

The free edition is limited to a total of three email accounts and doesn’t let you set a passcode. A Pro upgrade which removes restrictions is available as an in-app purchase.

Deal breaker: going Pro will set you back an absurdly ridiculous $49.99.

    woah 50.- for a pro version of an email client…

      Rohit from CloudMagic here. Most of our users don’t need to pay anything. You need to pay only if you have more than 3 accounts, require pass code, etc.

      • Smuys

        I understand that the upgrade isn’t in any way required, but I think that is a little bit too much for the extra features. This is my opinion, you go your own way, afterall ; it’s your app. I’m just saying that I wouldn’t expect many purchases.

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        I have four and I’m not paying for this, sorry.

      • ozonostudio

        the app looks great, but i’m not going to pay $50 USD, like @smuys:disqus say don’t expect many purchases, just think about this, Infinity Blade 3, one of the most anticipated iOS games cost only $7 what have your app that make it better than Infinity Blade or inclusive 1password? The price is a joke and seriously you start the company with the wrong foot, and when i see the “sent with cloudmagic mail” signature i remove the app in the same moment, really?

      • Christopher

        Actually the signature is a deal breaker for using a free account.

  • chumawumba

    I thought the days of paid email clients were gone…

    • Jonathan

      Apparently not.

  • Fırat Çiftçi

    I’m looking for a Mail client for Mac. What is the best on Mac? I don’t really like the stock Mail app.

    • Try Unibox.

    • ozonostudio

      i use sparrow, i love the fact of have the mail box hide

  • Kenny Woodard

    I have 4 main email accounts.. $50? Seriously?

  • Jonathan

    I’m going to stalk the guy who made the price $50.

  • Micaiah Martin

    Absolutely beautiful design. Can’t say anything good about the price though.

  • Mistrjon

    Does this app route our mail through their servers?

    • chesternelly .

      I’m assuming it does. I sent a test mail through our exchange server here at work and it took 5 minutes to show up in CloudMagic. Most times it’s instant though.

  • Ibrahim Aygun

    CloudMagic Search app is not available. What’s going on?

  • Eric Ortiz

    It’s $50 bucks annually. Granted I only use 1 email on my phone but I also cant remove the “sent with cloudmagic mail” signature without paying for the pro account. Not happening. Wish sparrow would get push. Can’t wait for the jail break.

    • Mistrjon

      Really? The mandatory signature is a dealbreaker for me.

      • Eric Ortiz

        Me too. If I want a signature, I’ll put one there.

    • Matthew Cleveland

      It’s like they want people to stay away from their client.

  • I was going to say that I would be finally free of waiting Mailbox be available to iCloud mail, but then I saw 50 bucks and all the restrictions that the free version of this app, frustration…

  • chesternelly .

    No badge icon makes me sad 🙁 I see the option for it but it’s not doing it.

  • Bosco

    You cannot turn off the ‘made with cloud magic’ signature unless you pay $50 dollars? Get real. I know you can erase it manually but that’s just silly. You guys should think about the user on the next build.
