VMware Boxer’s new FastSync tech could usher in a better third-party email experience
July 09, 2019 / Jon Towles
Going back to iOS 7, email has been a major pain point for users. Over the years, many of the key players (like TouchDown) have started to dissipate , leaving users to scramble for a next-level email experience that matches their desktops. No one has come close to delivering on this vision. Apple has never truly let third-party apps sync in the background and Apple’s interpretation of ActiveSync via their native Mail app has always fallen short. VMware may have finally combined the strengths of native email and third-party email into a cohesive and consistent experience by introducing a new spin on an old friend, FastSync.
