Spark gains Touch ID inbox protection, Apple Reminders support & integration with 10 new services

Readdle, Ukrainian developer of premium iOS and macOS apps, today announced a bunch of new productivity features for its award-winning Spark email app for Mac as well as a pair of noteworthy updates to Spark for iPhone and iPad.

In addition to gaining support for Apple’s Reminders app and ten popular third-party services, including Things, OmniFocus and Wunderlist, Spark for Mac app now makes it easy to use your emails in other apps thanks to a one-click email export feature with a variety of export options tailored to each specific third-party service.

Spark for Mac now supports the following third-party integrations:

  • Reminders by Apple
  • Things
  • 2Do
  • OmniFocus
  • Wunderlist
  • Todoist
  • Trello
  • Asana
  • Evernote
  • OneNote
  • Bear

“Our goal was to make it easy for you to organize information and create tasks seamlessly in the services that you use,” the company said.

With these newly introduced integrations and the one-click export capability with a variety of options at your disposal, you are now able to open Spark emails from your favorite third-party app via unique links and have the ability to customize input fields for each task.

To export an email message, open it in Spark, select the service you need, then click Save.

Spark power users get to enjoy custom keyboard shortcuts for each service that let them export an email without taking their hands-off the keyboard.

For each service, Spark presents you with different export options.

It’s pretty nice that the export window is fully customized to match the style of each service you’re using. Specific per-service export options allow you to, as an example, extract a back link to the email saved in your to-do app or save a PDF of the email to Asana.

“For every message you export, either a long email with attachments or a short message from your colleague, we always add the link that will bring you back to the original conversation,” explains Readdle. “With a back link, you no longer have to copy and paste chunks of a message, all of it is one click away, available in Spark.”

On the iOS side, the iPhone and iPad app has gained the ability to protect your inbox with Touch ID and a custom four-digit passcode. Another new feature, integration with Readdle’s PDF Expert app, lets you edit and send PDFs straight from Spark.

By the way, Readdle turned ten two weeks ago.

To celebrate the anniversary, they’ve created a special Readdle 10th Anniversary Bundle offer that provides four award-winning productivity apps for iPhone and iPad—PDF Expert 6, Scanner Pro, Printer Pro and Calendars 5—at half price.

Readdle apps have amassed 75 million downloads worldwide thus far.

“We have great things in store for the future, based on the strong foundations of our experience, lessons learned, and our passion to create awesome products that change the way you work and live,” the team said.

Spark for iPhone and iPad is free on App Store.
