List Of Alternative Apps For Gmail for Android

Google’s Android has some of the best apps of smartphone-verse. Maps, Drive, Gmail, just to name a few of them. Majority of them come from the maker Google itself. I am assuming there is a slight chance you might be fed up with its services and hence are looking out for some alternatives.

So here are five alternative apps for Gmail app for Android.



MailDroid will be my first recommendation for anyone looking out for an alternative for Gmail. Its easy to use interface looks easing to eyes too. You can easily customize the connection settings to minimize you cellular data bills. Bookmarks allow you to quickly jump to your specified folder in the mailbox.

If spam is your headache, you can pay MailDroid few bucks and the app will do the rest for you.

K–9 Mail


Apart from its ridiculous icon, everything else is powerful in terms of features. K–9 Mail can manage multiple accounts easily and automatically detects settings for new emails, like every other decent email application. You can enable split mode even on the smartphone in which you get to see more application interface.

You can also set up a “quiet time” in which the app won’t show any notification.

K-@ Mail Pro


K-@ Mail Pro sports more streamlined and refined interface. Like K–9 Mail, it also supports “quiet time” feature. In addition, it also comes equipped with text to speech and lock screen notifications. The app has also its widgets which makes even seamless to be in connection with the mail box.

If you are looking out for a straightforward email application for your android, with abilities to remote wipe and data encryption abilities, Emoze is for you. It offers a unified inbox, a designated attachments folder and always-available push email.

Aqua Mail Pro


The essential feature of Aqua Mail Pro is its integration with third party launcher apps such as Tasker, Nova Launcher and Apex Launcher Pro. In Aqua Mail Pro you can choose whether or not you want to automatically add a contact after you send off a message.

Aqual Mail Pro also features a Smart Inbox, which works like priority inbox of Gmail. But i doubt the feature would be as accurate as Gmail’s. Go for this app if you don’t want to struggle with the fiddle server settings of your email services.
