Gmail's redesign earlier this year saw the introduction of a feature called Nudge that reminds you to respond to emails. Nudge looks through your inbox to find actionable emails, and it'll surface the mails to the top of your inbox along with a note showing when you've received the mail.
Newton Mail — one of the most feature-rich mail clients available today — is getting a similar feature, dubbed Recap. Newton's app now comes with a dedicated Recap section that lists emails which require a reply or any follow-up action. For instance, if you receive a mail with a particular due date mentioned or a reminder, Newton will surface that in the Recap section to make sure you don't miss any important emails.
The feature is particularly handy if you receive a lot of mails a day. You'll see a blue dot for mails that require your attention, and you'll be able to get back to them later or dismiss them away. I've been using the feature for over a week now, and it has certainly helped me manage my work mailbox more effectively.
Alongside the launch of Recap, Newton has announced that it is ditching its introductory pricing and moving to $10 per month or $99 annually. Existing subscribers with auto-billing enabled will be grandfathered in, but new users will have to shell out $99 a year going forward. There is a 14-day trial available if you're interested in taking a look at the features on offer.
Newton is a compelling option if you're looking for an alternate email client — read receipts on emails is pretty great — but unless you have multiple accounts, it's hard to justify the annual cost, particularly when Gmail is available for free.

99 bucks a year!!!! nope, no way. I guess when my subscription is over I am dumping newton. No way I will pay that much for an email service. there are too many free ones out there like bluemail that can access all my accounts in one app.. The only reason I have it is because it can read my emails through amazon echo though very limited. I guess it is time to start looking for another one that will work for me.
Try blackberry hub + other services. Excellent product.
Who the hell helped decide their pricing? Lmao. This will be extinct within a year.
I don't disagree, except many of us said the same thing when it went from free to $50 a couple years ago, yet here they are increasing to $99. I get that there is a small subset of people who benefit from what this offers, I just can't believe there are *that* many . . .
$99 a year. Well I can't never see myself paying that much money for an email service. I can't see myself doing it & I won't ever do it.... It ain't that much email for me #InThisWorld
99 for an email service? No thanks.
