Hop cuts out all the clutter while allowing you to see all all the conversations in a clean view.
Commentaires: Hop allows for clearer communication and saving time spent on email. Allows for better context with a previous contact as well. I have saved a lot of hours on email, and a better experience then browser based email, or any other app.
Avantages: Hop helps reduce the amount of time spent on email. Hop works faster then any email client, and I have tried every one that I could find! The Priority Inbox vs Other inbox saves a lot of time sorting what is important and not important. If others are using Hop as well, it creates a realtime chat between each other. It also allows for encrypted messages between users, which is great when sending sensitive information.
Inconvénients: Not much, would like a few other small features like Auto Snoozing, and location based reminders. But really, they have the best email client, and now that desktop will be available, it will be the best solution on your smartphone, tablet, and desktop.

Makes email significantly less terrible!
Commentaires: I've been using it for over a year now both personally and professionally, and believe strongly that it makes the email experience significantly smoother and more enjoyable.
Avantages: Among the various tools looking to make email better, I believe this one does it best. It's strength is in truly stripping the junk away from messages—layers of quoted previous messages, long signature bars, etc.,—and turns it into iMessage/text like bubbles. When you're shooting messages back and forth to dozens of people, being able to keep up with conversations with simple bubbles is a super help. Yet, when you need to see the originally formatted message with the quoted text, it only takes one click to go back and forth again.
Inconvénients: It still acts and feels like beta software. The interface can be clunky at times, file handling isn't as robust as other email tools, moving messages to folders isn't possible. There's been some feature creep too as they seek to monetize, looking to make group messaging and voice/video chats.

A Chat-Like Approach to Email Management
Avantages: I love the approach that Spike take on email management. It uses chat-like interface from mobile chat apps that we grow to love so much. It minimizes the clutters that we get from normal email conversations. Plus Spike is free for non-business email accounts.
Inconvénients: Spike could take hints from other email clients to improve its user interface.

I love the fact that when I typed in the help box someone replied immediately. That was a huge eye opener.
It seamlessly divides emails into priority and others. It also puts all emails from the same person or company together. By doing that you can delete all the emails at once. Not one by one. This is the biggest plus of this app.

Hop saves a lot of time and is fun to use
- Best email "triage" functionality I have ever seen
- Lots of small features that save time
- Very clever designed features to find the piece of information you need
- Integrated instant messaging
- The user interface is a little different to the standard email clients, so you have to get used to it. But once you figure out (I still find more "hidden" features that I did not know of every once in a while) all the cool features you get hooked and don't want to miss it.
- no desktop version yet (but in development)

A New Perspective on Email Client
Avantages: Spike treats emails as chat conversations. It eliminates the long threads and simplifies the user interface. Spike is available in multiple platforms. It also supports multiple email accounts - free as long as they're Gmail.
Inconvénients: Work email accounts with @customname.com are not free. Charged per email account.

Provides many benefits when sending work information
Avantages: What I like most about this software is its ease of use and that it allows sending any type of information: messages, videos, images, files, and it can synchronize and save the information directly in the cloud.
Inconvénients: It had left its use for a while and when it came back it was gratifying to see the advances it has made.

Managing the Multiples Made Easy
Avantages: I can easily delete junk and old emails in one fell swoop thanks to the way the app bundles and organizes emails by contact. Its chat-like email view also lets me see all emails in a thread in one consistent feed so I can see everything just by scrolling rather than opening individual headers to find a specific mail I am looking for.
Inconvénients: That it took me forever to find out about it. Its a game-changer.

The Future of Email Client is Here Today
Avantages: Hop Email, now known as Spike, hits many right buttons regarding an email client. But choosing to design email conversations to look like mobile chats is genius. It hides all the clutters and makes it easier for users to comprehend the content.
Inconvénients: While managing free email is still free for Hop users, managing business emails is not.

SUPER enjoyed this app - just so easy and useful
Commentaires: Everything becomes faster and simpler. I get through my emails super quickly and I can't complain about anything. I love the features that this app offers and the amazing mobile dark mode.
- The design is clean and beautiful
- The conversational view is a lot better then the normal one and now I can't go back.
I didn't like the logo
I wish they had integration with task management but the lovely support informed me that they are working on it.

I really liked the app. This app provides everything one needs in a mail app.
I can unsubscribe any mail without launching external browser. Also I can block unwanted mails. The ui is good. Another addition is that the mails can be opened
like chats. It is pretty good as it declutters everything and I can mail easily.
Inconvénients: Nothing that I can think as of now. I have been using it everyday and has not faced any problems. It has made my mailings simpler and easy to use. The developer should release more updates with other features.

Fast, uncomplicated, cool - E-mail messenger with super features
Commentaires: I'm saving a lot of time with my daily emails (I receive a lot of mails every day).
Avantages: I really like the messenger chat style and the priority inbox. Makes communication more efficient, you can share docs etc. within groups and much more. More featured than other apps included, you don't have to switch between different apps, all what you need is included in Spike.
Inconvénients: Desktop version could have more features, dark mode on Desktop.

Avantages: I enjoy the chat based email look. It is quick and intuitive! I like seeing when others are responding to my messages too1
Inconvénients: The only negative at the moment is it is web based. Looking forward to having an App for my Mac in the future!

Treat Your Email Conversation Like Conversation
Avantages: The main concept of Spike is to treat email conversation like mobile IM message. So you won't see the long thread of previously replied emails, just the reply. It also tracks replies.
Inconvénients: While the Gmail accounts management is free, you need to pay for each managed business email.

Best email client I've used
Avantages: Hop keeps me on top of my game. I email much faster, never miss emails, and love snoozing. I'm able to search and find attachments very easily - major convenience and time saver.
Inconvénients: I'm waiting for the Send Later feature to be added. Receiving read-receipt notifications would also be useful.
Publié le 06/02/2018
Avantages: Easy to use. Great app. Quick email and I like the fact, that I can read the email in coversations. Support is excellent.
Inconvénients: I would like to be able to adjust the font size when read email. Or zoom in as sometimes the font is small

Not for everyone, it wasn't for me
Avantages: It's a really cool idea, and it's implemented exactly as promised. It can be fun and lower-stress to reply to work emails like they're an iMessage on your phone.
Inconvénients: A lot of my work emails don't lend themselves particularly well to a response akin to how you'd reply to a text message. Reading emails with HTML images wasn't good either.
