CloudMagic goes premium: introduces paid subscription for $4.99 per month
CloudMagic, one of the most popular email clients on Android (and one of our favorites here at Android Authority), has long been known for its abundance of supported email services, instant push notifications, multi account support and custom folder sync settings. The best part is that, up until now, all of CloudMagic’s convenient features have been completely free. In a blog post released earlier today, the developers at CloudMagic, Inc have announced CloudMagic Pro, a premium email service that is aimed at power users.
CloudMagic Pro entails a few features that were already offered in the app for free, plus a few other enhancements. Here are the features you’ll get if you upgrade to CloudMagic Pro:
- Add unlimited email accounts
- Setup email accounts once and login on another device to have everything ready
- Preferences sync’d across devices
- Download attachments in background
- Remote wipe your data if you lose your phone/tablet
- Priority support
Unlimited email accounts were supported in previous versions of the app, so users will now lose that functionality if they decide not to pay. New with the update comes the ability to remotely wipe data if your phone gets lost or stolen, which is likely a feature that will be welcomed by many power users.
In their statement, the developers give a bit of an explanation regarding the move to a premium subscription plan:
We are often asked how we intend to make money and we’ve always maintained we’ll never make our users the product, and instead have premium plans for features that power users will require. So today we announce a new set of features and CloudMagic Pro.
If you’re interested in making the jump to CloudMagic Pro, it will cost you $4.99 per month. If you plan on sticking with the app for awhile, you can pay a flat rate of $44.99 upfront and save $15 for the year. If you’re interested, head to the Google Play Store to download this awesome email client.
