Six 'Spike Email' stories

March 2019 - August 2020


Spike Email takes a cue from an app like iMessage or Facebook Messenger, and it brings that same look to email. So many of my emails are short messages (think Slack style), and Spike builds a design that helps make you more efficient. It strips away things like headers, signatures, etc and help you focus on just the content. It also includes a priority inbox to help keep your inbox with just the important stuff, so you can get right to work.

Another unique feature is the Groups feature that Spike offers its users. You can create groups for work departments, sport teams, etc. There is no need to download another app for messaging.

Spike adds collaborative notes and tasks to its conversational email app

I’ve been using Spike as my primary email client since early February, and while it takes a bit to unlearn some of your existing email habits, I find it to be the best email app for my use case. I find myself processing emails faster than I could ever do in a traditional email app. If you haven’t heard of Spike, I highly encourage you to read my review. Today, Spike released a new version of its app with two new additional components of the app: Spike tasks and notes. I’ve been testing these features for the past few weeks, and I am excited that it’s now out for general release.

I’ve been watching the Spike Email app for a few months now. Spike Email takes a cue from apps like iMessage and Facebook Messenger, and it brings that same look to email.

It strips away things like headers, signatures, etc. and helps you focus on just the content.

I checked it out, and I was blown away by its unique take on email. In fact, it’s the first time an email app has felt fresh to me since I first used Gmail in 2004.
