If you are an android guy, you might probably noticed that the default (integrated) Email client isn’t really a good one. In my opinion, it’s one of the few drawbacks of Android OS. The default app is to slow and unreliable. Hopefully Google have placed the app on their to-do list, and in the future they improve. But fortunately for now there are alternatives available on the Android Market, which also happened to be free of charge to use. Therefore we have created a list of the best alternative Android Email apps. All apps in the list have at least the same basic functionality as their standard counterparts but tend to also have a few extras thrown in. So here they are! Now I am sharing 6 of them. As you can see it’s the 11th post in “Android Collection” section.



1. K9 Mail

And lastly there is a search function incorporated into the app which can locate Emails.

While the first versions of Shangmail didn’t not look as if the email client could be a serious alternative to the standard Email program found on Android. With it being too unstable for regular use. But these problems were eventually fixed through updates and since then a large number of people have come to make use of this Email app. In terms of how well it functions, it can now easily keep pace with the other apps presented here.

5. Improved Email


The Improved Email app is less a standalone Email app, but rather a drilled version of the standard Android Email client. Thus Improved Mail has all the basic functions, but is more stable and faster than the pre-installed email Android App. To use Improved Mail, you must have at least Android 2.2 (Froyo) installed on the smartphone.


6. Exchange for Android 2.x
