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.
