Considering the Mail app is one of the most used apps in iOS, it is shocking that they haven’t improved the features before now. In the next rev of iOS we will see a much more functional and robust Mail app. They’ve added better formatting, in message search, built in dictionary, security and flag for follow up features.
Flag message for follow up is another new feature. I’m not sure that being able to flag for follow up has been a sore spot for many. But at least we won’t have to use wonky work arounds anymore, like marking a message as unread just so it is brought to our attention later.
While this isn’t a Mail specific feature, I thought it was important to include mention that Apple has included a real dictionary, system wide, in iOS 5. No more copying a word and taking it to Safari so you can make sure you are using it correctly.
Some of these feature have been painfully missing for so many years, I’m extremely excited for this update. What do you guys think? Did they miss anything you’ve been waiting for? Let us know in the comments.
