One of the downsides then the absence of the iPad version, but with the updates from Spark today is now fully utilize the larger screen of the iPad. In Spark for the iPad was to be just as the iPhone version new emails separated from you read emails, allowing you to see at a glance what’s all new. the app sorts your emails in a smart way, so you quickly can browse through your emails. so newsletters separately Danish real important new emails, so they do not distract from the emails that matter.
Spark on the iPad has almost the same look as the iPhone version, although the lighter blue instead has made a bluish-purple tint. in terms of e-mail display makes iPad version of Spark use of the larger screen, because your mailbox on the left illustrated, and see the selected e-mail to the right is. This only works in landscape mode. in portrait mode, the messages are displayed in full screen. However, you you swipe between different messages, but in portrait view you can not see in advance what the next email is right.
widgets moved to side menu
the so-called widgets are moved in the iPad version of the iPhone version. instead of the top or through a bottom right, you’ll find these options now in the upper left side menu always visible. Tap such a widget, such as the calendar, you contact list to the right. This is why some way from the Slide-On feature that Apple added in iOS 9 on newer iPads. The mailing list thus remains visible, but is not interactive anymore. It is not possible to scroll through the calendar and simultaneously your mailing list, which is a shame. The agenda Spark is synchronized with your default iOS calendar, so you do not have to work with two different agendas.
And on Slide speaking: this feature is supported by Spark on the iPad too. Splitview works with Spark, leaving your other apps can open alongside Spark. this way you can still use the default Calendar app to view next Spark, but it would have been easier if it could directly Spark itself.
other features of the iPhone app have made the transition to the larger iPad version. for example, consider the snooze function to ask emails to delay or itself swipe gestures . Swipe gestures are quick ways to clean up your mailbox. To mark a read email as quickly, you can archive it, or remove pins.
