Mail Pilot for iOS: is there room in the App Store for a $14.99 email client?
Over a year after successfully reaching its Kickstarter goal, Mail Pilot is finally out of beta and in the iOS App Store. Although it was originally intended as a subscription-based service, Mail Pilot’s developers have changed paths and decided to launch the app for $14.99 with no subscription. When it was first announced, Mail Pilot was hailed as an “ingenious” and “revolutionary” idea; a complete rethink of how we manage email that turns your inbox into a to-do list. Since its Kickstarter campaign, however, we’ve seen a slew of email apps on the iPhone, and one in particular, Mailbox, has seen wide praise for “fixing” email on iOS.
