Email is rather like capitalism: it’s pretty awful, but the alternatives are all worse.
But it needn’t be a burden. All you need is the right tool – and on the iPhone, that tool is Airmail.
You may already know Airmail as an OS X app with powerful filters and customisation. On iOS it’s much the same, with support for multiple accounts (Gmail, Exchange, IMAP and POP3), integration with third party services such as Evernote, Wunderlist and Dropbox, HTML composition and PDF creation. It supports 3D Touch for quick actions and viewing content, syncs with the Mac version via iCloud and uses the iOS 9 search API so you can quickly find documents and messages.
Airmail is packed with every conceivable feature you might want, offering exceptional levels of filtering and customisation that can tame even the most irritating inbox. For example, instead of just offering swipe to delete, Airmail lets you choose what long swipes and short swipes do from the left and from the right. You can snooze emails so they disappear until a set time, or create a To-Do and redirect it, bounce it or view the message source. You name it, Airmail can do it. It takes a bit of time to set up, but it’s worthwhile and makes email management a lot less effort.
Airmail lets you filter emails and customise how they are displayed.
