eMail made modern, simple and transparent

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's a bit of a change of approach, coming from more classical email services, but I'm finding myself drawn more and more to this app, and it has effectively supplanted my use of all other mail clients. I find the message-centred (i.e. like a chat thread) approach enlightening and very efficient. The learning curve has been very shallow (i.e. I've learned a lot / feel comfortable using Spike in a short time) and I'm really enjoying using the App!

Pros

+ The ease of use - everything is in one place, and it's easy to concentrate on the information in the messages, rather than filtering through quoted text or long emails that duplicate something already on my computer. + The modern approach - as much as business is still formal, and we value salutations and signatures, they distract from the message we are sending, and email is being supplanted by...

Cons

There are still a few growing pains, and some features are not fully implemented yet. Some things that aren't working perfectly are the calendar integration, .ics files/invitations, and sometimes Spike won't recognise the email/name I'm typing in to give me reasonable proposals.... But these are minor details in the great scheme of things, and given the age of the app, there are truly very few bugs or glitches!

Vendor response

Spike alters the conents of you mail or charges $144 to "allow" you unaltered email.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Terrible. Their business approach is misleading - they actually alter the contents of your emails without clearly stating they will do so.

Pros

It looks nice. Pretty UI. Email organization is ok for a single email address *IF* you don't care about your in-email branding or your own signature.

Cons

The problems start with multiple accounts. I tried with my personal one, my company one and one I use from a client of mine. The organization got very confusing when one person wrote to more than one of my accounts. It got worse when I wanted to write a new email to a person who wrote me at more than one account. It was an utter mess. But the reason I give this such a bad review is that what they did not tell me was that they remove my branding - my signatures and replace them with their advert. This was not clearly stated anywhere - I discovered it when I wrote myself a test. I did eventually find in their pricing table that Free accounts don't get "custom signatures". I also found that to use MY branding I am expected to pay them $144.

Great value for money

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've been using it for less than 6 months but I've found it so easy and user friendly. Feels like I'm using whatsapp for email. Which is so great.

Pros

That I can see when someone has opened my email and I can respond to emails as if I'm on whatsapp. Not be a robot like when I use other sites.

Cons

When you send the email to multiple people, I'd like to see which individual viewed the email. Not that if one person viewed it, I'll have the impression that everyone else did which is false and feels misleading.

Vendor response

Hi there, we're glad you're enjoying Spike's powerful inbox and conversational email app. Feel free to spread the joys of productivity by sharing Spike with colleagues and friends. Currently, our unique feature "Read Receipt" works only on emails that are 1to1 and not on multiple people, we've upvoted this idea with our dev team to consider in future updates. If you ever need assistance, we're here: chat@spikenow.com

The best Email app for Apple ecosystem!!

Reviewed 2 years ago

I enjoy emails now because of Spike.

Pros

Being able to manage my emails in a chat format and getting rid of spam, junk, etc with such ease is great.

Cons

The limit to just two email accounts for free is the only thing I wish they would change. Or at least offer an 3 email plan which didn’t involve such a high price.

Vendor response

Thanks for leaving a review, Dennis. Spike is free for 1 email address. If you need help connecting more email addresses, we'd be happy to help! Drop us a message at pro@spikenow.com, thanks!

Light and Powerful

Reviewed 3 years ago

I really like Spike as a platform for time and task management. The Solo plan is a bit expensive for personal or freelance work, but I'm definitely interested in investing in the Team plan as I expand.

Pros

I love how simple yet functional it is. It's very intuitive and has a lot of powerful tools for keeping your life and projects organized.

Cons

The free, personal version can look cluttered.

Vendor response

Keep enjoying Spike, Amelia! If we can ever help with anything, feel free to message us at chat@spikenow.com or follow us on @SpikenowHQ on Twitter for updates and great tips
