Nylas N1 – A Premium Email Client For Linux
Initially I had just been using Microsoft outlook as it comes bundled within every Microsoft operating system by default, but why settle for mediocrity? I vowed to enjoy my new computer by installing on it only the best available software out there and in this way, I got to discover Nylas N1 through a friend of mine.
The nylas website is quite easy to navigate and downloading the nylas installer is quite a joy, it doesn’t present a problem even to noobies (novice computer users). The download link is easily accessible from the home page and once downloaded, the installation process is quite painless, this I discovered first hand and was able to have it up and running in less than ten minutes.
The previously sought after open-source Sparrow client unfortunately got discontinued a while after it was acquired by Google. This was the go to option especially because of a very sweet twitter inspired interface that was easy to use and had a quite quick reply turn around.I got lost after that and reverted to the mundane Microsoft outlook until the recent introduction to Nylas.
At the time of publishing N1 was not in the perfected state yet there are some features still in development one being a unified inbox, formatting is a bit cumbersome, iCloud messages handling is not as good as it could be. This though is an email client that puts adaptability and design in equal emphasis. My affinity for Sparrow and Mailbox was always because we had not gotten a better option, also with N1 there is repect for users needs and wishes and a willingness to adapt to users feature requests. what more could we ask for?
