Newton, the popular third-party email management client for iOS and Mac, has today announced that it will be shutting down on September 25th, 2018. Rohit Nadhani, CloudMagic’s Founder and CEO, said that while he would love to keep the app afloat, the premium mail application market is simply not there.
“We launched CloudMagic in 2013, which instantly became one of the breakout email apps across platforms, with love and support from over 4 million users. Later in 2016, we (re)launched a subscription-based premium email app called Newton, and over 40,000 paid subscribers signed up and have been our loyal users since. We want to say a big THANK YOU to all our users. Words cannot express our gratitude for all of you.”
The company has said that it is no longer accepting new signups and monthly subscriptions will not be renewed effective immediately. Users who are on a yearly subscription will be refunded on a pro-rata basis. The company will be working with both Apple and Google to get partial refunds back to its users.
CloudMagic, the company behind Newton, will however continue to operate and work on new projects.
An update on pro-rata refunds will be announced no later than September 18, 2018.
