CloudMagic email client rebranded as Newton, gets more premium features

By , Sep 22, 2016


As far the Mail app on iPhone and iPad is concerned, it’s pretty solid for day to day email activities, but third-party startups are coming up with great ways to improve the email experience. Now that you can remove stock apps from iOS 10, it’s a great opportunity to try a new third-party email app on your device.

Enter Newton, a familiar email client, formerly known as CloudMagic, that brings a number of premium features to the world of email on all of your devices.

You might remember CloudMagic as a great third-party email client that supported multiple email providers like iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo and others, and that it still is, but now the client has turned into a paid subscription-based service that provides you with premium features that most people using email don’t even have the luxury of using.


With Newton, you gain all kinds of great new email features that others would drool over. We’ll outline those for you below:

Read receipts: See when people have read your emails. Perfect for those people who never seem to reply.


Email scheduling: Compose your email now, and have it send to your recipient later on. Great for holidays and birthdays.


Undoing sending: If you botched an email, you can take it back before the recipient reads it. Don’t make a fool of yourself.


Sender profiles: View more about the people who are emailing you. See their contact information and their story.


Email snoozing: Get notified about specific emails later on. Choose when to be notified.


Connect productivity apps Integrate your favorite productivity apps, like Evernote, OneNote, Zendesk, and others.


Strong security: Set up a passcode and even use Touch ID to log into your email. Keep people from reading your emails.


All of these great features, and more, can be tinkered with in the app’s settings, which are extensive. You can set up individual settings for each and every one of your email accounts, or you can apply settings to all of your accounts:


Of course, these features don’t necessarily come cheap. Although you can download the Newton app for free from the App Store and use its basic emailing features, the premium features are going to cost you $49.99 annually to use; that comes out to roughly $4.16 per month, but you get a complimentary 14-day free trial beforehand to try before you buy.

For an average user, this comes off as pricey, but to anyone who uses email on a regular basis and would like the added bells and whistles, the price could be worth it.

To add to the versatility of this app, it’s worth noting it’s a cross-platform email app. When you make your account, you can download the app for free on your Mac or Android devices too and simply log in with your Newton account to access the same great features on those devices too.

    To be honest, I have enough of subscription based services since I pay a lot for Dropbox and iCloud every month. I just hope all these functions will be implemented by others soon.

      Yes, way better and I dig the app icon…


    Blindsided all it’s CloudMagic customers. Terrible business model. Too many free options to justify a $50 mail client.

    Switched to Spark.

    • diggitydang

      Same here! Totally blindsided and switched to Spark as well.

    • :D

      $50 per year**

      So much yes! Cloudmagic was great, blindsided the hell out of us, and I will never touch newtonmail again for this rediculous premium it believes it has,

  • nova voter

    I’m personally a huge fan of Spark. There are a couple things I’d like added (ability to create new folders, for instance), but it’s still great.

    And they get back to you quickly when you suggest new features (within a day they let me know they’ll be adding the ability to create new folders).

    On my iMac, its Airmail all the way.

    I suggest reading the comments about this app in the App Store first.

    • The Zlatan

      Haha some of those are hilarious.

    Is this a sponsored article. Can’t find any justification why you would be ready to move to this terrible business model and spend $50 a year for this. Not that this app has features that no the mail client has. Spark and Airmail have almost all these features and even more for just 1/10 of the price or even free. Don’t see Newton succeeding with such a terrible business model. Even a person using mail in work all day can’t justify paying this price year over year when all of this can be had for a far better value.

    Was using cloudmagic for over a year then they pull the free to $49.99 model in one swoop.
    Terrible way to do business.

    Using spark now and much happier.

  • get wrekted

    How much did Newton Mail pay you for this post?

  • Smegmatron

    Airmal all the way baby!!

  • rich_bown

    Terrible way to treat customers “$50 per year may be worth it” this stinks of a paid article

  • Ruck

    I have no issue with idb writing articles on products they want to promote. That’s just business. This site isn’t staying up for free. I just think what cloudmagic did was complete crap.

  • iByron

    I switched from CloudMagic to Airmail a bit back when Airmail finally came to macOS (shortly after CloudMagic finally came to iOS… or was it the other way around?). I didn’t really use any of the “premium” features and could still use Newton as a quite satisfactory email client without the subscription (as can everyone else).

    I will check out Newton’s free mode, though they’ve given me a free year as I bought the Mac client as well. Will probably stick with Airmail, but good to have options.
