WearMail - Indie app of the day

Today's indie app of the day is WearMail. This email app puts Android Wear functionality first as opposed to just being another email app with Wear support.

Published onNovember 14, 2014

What is WearMail

WearMail is an email client built specifically for Android Wear. This is in stark contrast to other email apps which are build for smartphones and include Wear support. It’s currently free in the Google Play Store with no in app purchases.

Here’s how the app works. You sign into all of your email accounts and you can then manage all of your emails from your Android Wear device. It shows the full email if you want it to along with the sender and subject and it stacks notifications for easier management. You can do things like read, reply, delete, and mark as priority or mark as read. You can also use quick reply. It’s a very simple app but the developer seems to want this to be a Wear-first experience and you can definitely tell.

It is early on in development so there are some bugs and small issues being reported here and there. Some people are unhappy that you have to sign into your accounts again although that’s something the app needs in order to function properly. There are also some smaller features like a Do Not Disturb mode and there are a few customization settings.

Overall, you’re probably going to be more comfortable sticking to your main email app. Those who use their Android Wear devices a lot will probably enjoy this more than those who do not. It’s a solid app in the making once the developer gets everything straightened out.
