CloudMagic-Google-Play

CloudMagic, the best third-party email client for mobile, just got even better thanks to a major new update that’s available right now on Android and iOS. In addition to adding quick filters for things like unread and starred messages, the release brings customizable alert tones, account nicknames, access to spam folders, and lots more.

Believe it or not, but Android and iCloud can work together in perfect harmony.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received a number of emails from readers who are either considering or already in the process of migrating from an iPhone or iPad enquiring if it’s possible to configure an iCloud account on an Android-powered device. The quick and simple answer to that question is yes, it is possible, but it can be a bit tricky — so we’ve decided to create this comprehensive ‘How-To’ guide.

So sit back, relax and follow the steps below to set up your iCloud email account on your Android smartphone or tablet. Before we start, though, you’ll need to open the stock Email client on your handset. The design of the application will vary depending on your particular device and the launcher you’ve chosen to use, but its overall function should be the same.

Android-Email

Google’s stock Android Email application, which comes pre-installed on Nexus devices and allows users to access third-party email services like Outlook and iCloud, is now available to download from Google Play. The release will enable users to get their hands on updates and new features faster than before, but it’s available only to Nexus and Google Play Edition devices.

Sunrise-Songkick

If you aren’t already using Sunrise to manage your calendars on Android and iOS, then you’re doing something wrong. It’s the prettiest (certainly on Android) and most impressive calendar app, and it just got even better.

A new update that’s rolling out today lets you connect to services like Songkick, Evernote, Tripit and more to automatically add upcoming tasks and events to your schedule.

iOS-8

With iOS 8, Apple is bringing a multitude of exciting new features to iPhone and iPad. In some cases, Cupertino is playing catch-up as it tries to match what’s currently available in KitKat; in others, Apple’s next-generation mobile operating system is about to blast past the latest version of Android.

Android and iOS will secure a staggering 95 percent of smartphone market share between them in 2014, according to the latest research from IDC. While it’s strictly a two-horse race, Google’s platform is currently far out in front when it comes to number of users, with Android’s market share expected to reach 80.2 percent by the end of the year.

Google has a new Android update up its sleeve that will be announced this summer, but while Apple posts impressive upgrade percentages, Android fragmentation typically slows deployment of Google’s latest, greatest mobile OS.
