The design & development company responsible for Airmail is Bloop SRL & is based in Siena, Italy. It is highly specialized in both iOS & OS X environments. It has done a commendable job of porting the user experience & features of its email client from the desktop platform, while adapting it to the smaller form factor of the phone & watch environments.

A number of the features in Bloop’s client are also available in the crowded & competitive email client field, but according to the Company & to many of its fans, few offer the range & customizability of this product, which sets it apart from the pack.

You can get Airmail for US $4.99 from the App Store. It’s available in 20 languages, requires iOS 9.0 or later & is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, & the iPod touch.
