The Superhuman Email Review: The Best Email App in 2024?


Superhuman. Today we’re going to be diving into this email app, giving an idea and a breakdown of some of the features and an experience that I’ve had over the last couple of years. I’m going to be talking about other email applications in this article and also how this application compares with them. So hopefully, this will give you a judgment on whether this application is any good and whether it’s right for you. So welcome everyone, my name is shahid. And I have been a web developer and blogger for the past 10 years. Without wasting any more time let’s dive into it.

What is Superhuman?

So the Superhuman is a really interesting application because it’s priced quite heavily it’s thirty dollars a month but the application itself is very much targeted at those who spend a considerable amount of time on email I formally used an app called Tempo which I loved and another app I use called Massive both were really really good I think Missive is much more suitable for those who are looking to collaborate on email and who are looking to expand with team members I think that’s a pretty good setup there.

Superhuman Core Features

Superhuman landed on my plate probably about a year and a half ago, and I really just jumped into it. I thought, okay, I’ll do one of these onboarding experiences that they do and sort of learn how it works. And to be honest, I was very skeptical to start, but actually, I was pretty impressed. There are a couple of features I want to talk about and show you before we begin.

So, I think the first thing that really makes Superhuman different from other stuff is the command bar. What’s different about the command bar is when you press Command K, you really do get the power of it, but you need to learn the keyboard shortcuts. I’m not somebody who likes keyboard shortcuts, but once you learn these, it actually saves you a huge amount of time. Like, I’m so used to using H to remind me, which is essentially snooze, and things like creating snippets that I can routinely create something that I’m sending over to somebody, which is really helpful.

But the command bars are sort of the power of this. And to be honest, with former email applications, Tempo didn’t have a mobile application to my memory or they did, it was not very good on iOS. Missive had one, which was fairly good, no problem with it, but I never really used email much on my mobile. But the command bar relates so well out of the mobile version that you can use the command bar on mobile pretty easily.

So actually, I’ve been using email on my phone so much more than I was before and able to clear inbox items. But what’s most notable is I don’t know whether you can see from this, the speed of Superhuman is very fast, and it does work very smoothly. I’ve not had another email experience that’s been this fast. The tempo was fast, but this is a different level of fast. It loads instantaneously, and I’ve never had like a fault with it in terms of speed and function.

Superhuman AI

More recently, I’ve been trying the AI functions, like just playing around with AI and email, and to be honest, I don’t get on with AI in email. I think it’s weird to have an email, I think it’s maybe it’s a generational thing that I’m just sort of in the middle with, um, but when I’m trying to formulate an email, I only write in my own words, whereas I think it probably is quite good if you’re trying to reformat something to convey more detail and things like that.

But I haven’t really gone deep on the Superhuman AI, but in itself, it’s probably a feature that I wouldn’t use as much. But they do have a more recent AI feature that they have introduced. Another smaller thing I like about Superhuman is the unsubscribe button. I quite like that. Um, I like the ability to tab stuff. So, what you can do is when you have like a specific a topic that you are, like, you’re getting considerable man emails for like VIP news, etc., you can create a new sort of tab for it, and it re-routes your emails into there each time, which is quite nice.

Another function I do like is the ability to see your calendar and to some extent because it helps me to see okay when I type in Thursday 17th of March it allows me to see whether it is a Thursday 17th of March or just 17th of March, so that’s quite a nice feature. Another element I do like about it is that you can switch between multiple accounts pretty easily on Gmail, and they’ve added more abilities as well. And overall, the experience is really snappy and fluid.

Is Superhuman for You?

So who would I recommend Superhuman for? Now, if I wasn’t handling a lot of emails a day, and a lot of sponsorships, I would say me four years ago wouldn’t have needed Superhuman because I was in a place where I was coding most of the day and I was doing elements. But now I’m not doing coding, and I’m not doing as much coding, and I’m doing much more like high-level management of stuff.

And having something like Superhuman with email helps me to do that. So I’m more of a customer now than I was in the past. So, if you’re somebody who probably spends two hours or more on email and you’re reaching it from a high-level perspective, then this could be good for you.

If you’re a freelancer and you’re spending a hideous amount of time in email, then this could be a good investment of your money. But at the same time, it’s working out are you starting out as a freelancer because I probably don’t recommend it for you. But if you’re somebody that’s a bit more grounded and you’ve got revenue cash flow coming in, then maybe it might be a bit better for you.

I would say this is much more structured for individuals who are looking to go much more hands-on with their email and faster. So I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for everyone, but they’re probably the use cases I’d say are best for Superhuman. So, that was my overview of it.
