7 free Mail apps for your Google Nexus 7

I bought the Nexus 7 (32Gb) last week when Google released the new model. At £299, it is perfectly priced and you receive a powerful tablet power by Google and Android.

Nexus 7

This is my first Android based devices and I spent a good portion of my weekend exploring the tablet and the Play store.

I’ve been hunting for a good Mail app and I present below some of the popular apps that allow you to check mail on your Nexus 7 or just about any other Android device including smart phones or tablets.


Gmail Android app

This is the default app that comes in built when you buy the Nexus. You can use this to get your Gmail email instantly via push notifications, read and respond to your conversations online & offline, and search and find any email. Gmail also lets you add multiple accounts, view and save attachments and set up label notifications.

Yahoo! Mail

The official Yahoo! Mail app for Android. Allows you to manage multiple Yahoo! Mail accounts, preview photos, send and receive attachments.

The app has better integration with Yahoo! Messenger (if you still use this) and will also send push notifications when you receive new emails. A good feature is the ability to compose email with rich text and emoticons.
