The day has finally arrived! If you’re an iOS user, chances are that you’ve dealt with the frustration that comes from a lack of choice. For years, if you had a preferred browser or email app other than Safari and Mail, you could use them but you couldn’t set them as the default. That finally ended with the release of iOS 14, so now you can set Boomerang as the default iPhone email app.
How to Set Boomerang as the Default Email App
The process is simple, but not exactly the way that you might think it should go. Rather than having a distinct setting for choosing your preferred email app (or browser), you have to go into the settings for the app itself.
Here’s a step-by-step explanation of how to use Boomerang as your default email app in iOS:
- First, make sure you’ve installed iOS 14
- Once you’ve verified that you’re on iOS 14, install Boomerang for iOS
- Navigate to Settings in your iPhone
- Scroll all the way down until you see Boomerang
- Tap on Boomerang and then look at the bottom of the page
- Tap on Default Mail App
- Select Boomerang
That’s it! It’s that simple to start using Boomerang as your default email app on the iPhone and iPad.
Now that you’re all set up, poke around inside of Boomerang for iOS and you’ll find that it’s the most powerful email app that’s ever existed for the iPhone. Not only does it allow you to work the way that you want through extensive customization options, it also saves you time and effort.
We’ve put a lot of work into the Search function of Boomerang for iOS, and we think it’s the best search experience you’ll ever use in an email app. You can search for messages from a specific sender, find emails with attachments, search by date, and much more. You can even search for emails by type, such as “marketing emails from last week.”
Our Voice Assistant saves you taps and time by letting you speak your commands instead. “Find emails from Jamie that contain an attachment”, or “delete all marketing emails from last week” are just a couple of ways that you can use the Voice Assistant. Need to know what your day looks like? Tell the Voice Assistant to “Brief me” and you’ll get a rundown of your calendar for the day, a forecast of how long you’ll need to spend on email, and how many unanswered items need your attention.
As you can see, Boomerang is much more than just an email app. It’s also the most powerful scheduling tool for the iPhone. Cut down on the back and forth of scheduling meetings with Suggest Times, Share Free/Busy, and Event Detection. The powerful features that you love in Boomerang for Gmail and Boomerang for Outlook are now available now matter where you are.
