The Best Email Apps (iOS & Android) 2021 (TL;DR)

You can’t deny the fact that the default email app on your smartphone isn’t perfect (whether it’s an iPhone or an Android). Because it’s just an email client that’s good only to check emails and thanks to its push notifications, which notify you in real-time about new email messages.
