You might be thinking "why pay for email management when you can use any email client for free?" 🤔
While I've spoken to many about the sheer simplicity and power, I find that either someone "gets it" or "doesn't", and if you don't, it's not for you.
Prior to Superhuman we were using Gmail. And Gmail is great as a free email experience, but once we tried Superhuman we found it made the entire "checking and answering emails" experience way more enjoyable—and fast.
If you highly value your time, and are willing to pay a bit extra for enjoyment, Superhuman is the tool that will do just that, while get you through your email inbox 2x as fast.
Saves Time, Increases Enjoyment
In summary, if you’re on email A LOT and want to optimize for enjoyment/ease/speed, Superhuman is 100% worth it. We’ve been paying for it for years and can't see life without it It's thoughtful, fast, and powerful. The way email should have been.
I'm not kidding, I'm talking like those 3-5 seconds you often need to wait for Gmail to load—yeah, Superhuman is literally instant. Want to write an email? Open Superhuman and press [c] and you'll be in a compose window a solid 2 seconds before Gmail loads.
Superhuman also allows you to triage through your inbox using only keyboard shortcuts.
I was a skeptic for years, until I finally gave it a shot. Learned some of the simple keyboard shortcuts like [e] for archive and [h] for snooze + some additional fun shortcuts like [#] for delete, and [!] for spam.
Don't like memorizing keyboard shortcuts to get through your email more quickly? Great, then just press [CMD] + [k] for the command bar → the Superhuman key, which allows you to do absolutely anything from anywhere just by typing.
Set reminders to be returned on your emails if someone hasn't responded, mark messages as done with hitting a button and label messages with ease. Since we started using Superhuman, we see inbox zero way more often.
Read statuses are super helpful for our team too (if I send an email and Andra (my Co founder) is cc'd, she can also see if the recipient opened the email or if I am in the middle of typing a reply. This has been so helpful for collaboration 🤜 🤛).
Set filters so that you can have different inbox splits (for example, filters for emails that are Important, Newsletters, Calendar Alerts, and Notifications). This creates a unified inbox that is more orderly.
Want to access more info quickly on the person that just emailed you? Superhuman's right hand bar will pull in the social media profiles of the person your writing to for easy access.
Use their advanced features like saved snippets for a re-usable bit of text that you use often and you'll save a ton of time.
Their *new* AI features are impressive and a fantastic use of AI. Write your emails quickly as a blurb, then ask AI to re-write with commands like "shorten", "lengthen", "simplify" or "improve writing". Even cooler? Superhuman learns your voice from your previous emails and you can ask Superhuman to re-write something in your voice 🤯
Oh, and the mobile Superhuman app. You can mark messages as done in literally one second on the go via the Superhuman mobile app. Triaging your inbox on the go has literally never been easier. You can also go ahead and "snooze an email for when you're on your computer", because sometimes you just want your full keyboard.
One thing to note is, this rating is for the Superhuman iOS mobile app (Android was released more recently and is still a few features behind, e.g. read statuses, the calendar and customizable swipe actions are still to come along with a few others).
Superhuman email works with Google Workspace (G Suite) or your Outlook account. As a part of Superhuman's onboarding process, you'll get a 30 minute call with one of their reps to show you how to get the most out the tool. You can then add multiple email accounts (e.g. personal + work) and it's super easy to flip between email accounts making it even more worthwhile as now you never have to use Gmail or Outlook again.
At the end of the day, I'll never leave Superhuman, because it makes me dread email less. Enjoy it even. I told my wife Andra about Superhuman and while she resisted the idea of paying for her email experience, after a month of using it she couldn't see herself not using Superhuman again.
Our advice? Try it and you'll be unable to see yourself using Gmail ever again too.
