Essential is resurrecting the once-dead Newton Mail app
Essential is bringing back Newton Mail, the defunct email app that it acquired last December following Newton’s shutdown in September due to an inability to compete with better funded and more popular competitors like Google and Microsoft, via Android Police.
As it was before the shutdown, Newton Mail is once again available for Newton Mail iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows devices, making it one of the only truly cross-platform dedicated email apps around. Essential’s is keeping the price the same too: $49.99 per year (with a 14 day free trial to see if you’d actually like to pay for it.) And despite the fact that Essential now owns the company, there don’t seem to be any special discounts for customers that own Essential Phones.
