The app was created by AOL (TechCrunch’s parent company) but supports Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, iCloud and AOL Mail. While it shares many features with Google’s Inbox app, it doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. At its core, Alto Mail remains an email app, and a pretty good one.
Alto Mail covers all the basics when it comes to email apps today. It features threaded conversations, swipe-to-archive gesture (with multi-touch support) and a combined inbox.
But there are a few additional nifty features as well. For instance, Alto Mail scans your inbox to pull flight and shipment details so that you can view the status of your next flight or incoming package on the Dashboard screen. Like in Inbox, these cards will also be added in your inbox messages.
