Key benefits of Spike

  • Conversational Email: Email headers, signatures, and quoted text are automatically hidden to present conversations in simplified flows, and users can revert to original email formatting with a click.

  • Live Collaboration in Notes & Docs: Create, collaborate and share documents without leaving your Inbox. Use the built-in chat to discuss ideas, leave comments and collaborate with anyone.

  • Tasks & To Dos: Spike makes managing your tasks a breeze. Organize and prioritize your tasks, projects, and even your grocery list. Create, manage, track, set reminders and complete tasks all from your Inbox.

  • Priority Inbox: See important conversations first. Non-priority messages are sorted into a separate inbox to avoid distractions.

  • Real-time Awareness: View when someone in a conversation is typing, and when the recipients have seen their messages.

  • Unified Inbox: Multiple email accounts can be combined in a single inbox, and multiple calendars can also be consolidated into a single screen.

  • Email Triage: Users can send built-in rapid responses or create their own, and access shortcuts by swiping, to archive messages, delete messages in bulk, and more.

  • Customization: Notifications can be customized for each user, allowing for muting threads, setting unique notification sounds for each contact, and switching off notifications for non-priority messages.

  • Team Chat: Group chat within your inbox! No logins, no links, just everyone on the same page, all from your inbox. And the best part is that all you need to join, is your email address.

  • The Fastest, Search. Ever: Stop wasting your time on endless searches. Search all messages, files and contacts instantly, across all your inboxes and cloud storage accounts. Spike’s Super Search is the fastest way to find and attach anything.

    An awesome email client

    Reviewed on 2020/10/13

    Overall - a great app and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

    Overall - a great app and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

    Pros

    The way Spike sorts emails is genius.
    It turned my inbox into a chat-like experience, where emails are grouped by people and not threads/topics - so it actually feels like I'm using a IM and not an outdated email client.

    Cons

    Some of the more advanced features still need some work.
    I'd love to see tagging in notes (so collaboration would be smoother), or the option to add a call link into an invite directly (like in Google Calendar).

    eMail made modern, simple and transparent

    It's a bit of a change of approach, coming from more classical email services, but I'm finding myself drawn more and more to this app, and it has effectively supplanted my use of all other mail clients. I find the message-centred (i.e. like a chat thread) approach enlightening and very efficient. The learning curve has been very shallow (i.e. I've learned a lot / feel comfortable using Spike in a short time) and I'm really enjoying using the App!

    Pros

    + The ease of use - everything is in one place, and it's easy to concentrate on the information in the messages, rather than filtering through quoted text or long emails that duplicate something already on my computer.
    + The modern approach - as much as business is still formal, and we value salutations and signatures, they distract from the message we are sending, and email is being supplanted by chats/blogs/... And Spike embraces this trend without losing the formality (it's just hidden)
    + The semi-automatic email account setup - Spike recognised (in most cases) what kind of email account I had (Gmail, or Exchange, or IMAP) and pre-filled parts of the server data (or eliminated me having to enter it at all) which made setting up accounts a breeze.
    + The incredibly fast customer service - The CS team is really fast (and personable, and friendly and helpful) when I have an issue. And I feel super well-taken-care-of. Not a given in today's fast moving automated world.

    Cons

    There are still a few growing pains, and some features are not fully implemented yet. Some things that aren't working perfectly are the calendar integration, .ics files/invitations, and sometimes Spike won't recognise the email/name I'm typing in to give me reasonable proposals....
    But these are minor details in the great scheme of things, and given the age of the app, there are truly very few bugs or glitches!

    Not for everyone, it wasn't for me

    Reviewed on 2018/03/07

    Pros

    It's a really cool idea, and it's implemented exactly as promised. It can be fun and lower-stress to reply to work emails like they're an iMessage on your phone.

    Cons

    A lot of my work emails don't lend themselves particularly well to a response akin to how you'd reply to a text message. Reading emails with HTML images wasn't good either.

    Hop allows for clearer communication and saving time spent on email. Allows for better context with a previous contact as well. I have saved a lot of hours on email, and a better experience then browser based email, or any other app.

    Pros

    Hop helps reduce the amount of time spent on email. Hop works faster then any email client, and I have tried every one that I could find! The Priority Inbox vs Other inbox saves a lot of time sorting what is important and not important. If others are using Hop as well, it creates a realtime chat between each other. It also allows for encrypted messages between users, which is great when sending sensitive information.

    Cons

    Not much, would like a few other small features like Auto Snoozing, and location based reminders. But really, they have the best email client, and now that desktop will be available, it will be the best solution on your smartphone, tablet, and desktop.

    We use this software to unify common emails, with advanced messaging that integrates better additional functionalities for an improvement in productivity that is frequently carried out, especially when we address communication issues, in order to acquire a sophisticated context, for each one of the conversations that are usually established internally in the company, above all to reduce the clutter of data and messages that are made daily, in order to offer a much faster and more solid service.

    Pros

    This software unifies all the inboxes that a company can have, in a single interface, to achieve a more prudent concentration by needing to manage all its calls, text messages, emails, calendars and among many other qualities that can be attended from this system for a speed of response, especially when the support services are established by email or telephone means, being one of the systems that I like the most, since we can perform many operations at the same time thanks to Spike.

    Cons

    It would be quite useful if this system will integrate a better appearance in its internal interface, because it is somewhat old, and it would be convenient for improvements, for a modern appearance in its entirety, in order to acquire a dynamic and incredible appearance once we want to use This software, for our needs, relevant, mentioning that an update so that its functionalities can be faster, is not a bad idea to implement, since it is somewhat slow in these collaborative processes.
