Back in September 2014, we announced Maestro, a brand new email client coming for Windows Phone 8.1. The email client promised to be a full-featured app for Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo! Mail. The app entered in a public preview for a few months before going back under wraps for the winter.
Today, Maestro 1.0 is here, and boy has it improved. From new features to performance improvements, Maestro has a clean slate going forward. The developers behind Maestro, Hidden Pineapple, are promising many new features for future builds, including conversations, better avatar support, more gestures, bug fixes, and improvements.
Even better? Maestro runs for $1.99 but if you download it today, it is yours for free forever. This offer is only good for the next 24-hours, so grab it now!
Maestro v1.0 Features

- Gestures (Swipe to Delete, Archive, or Reply)

The Maestro UI has a very Windows 10 feel, including those wire-frame icons and performance on our Lumia 1520 feels quite good.
If you have been looking for a new email client, give Maestro a try. Even if it does not meet your needs today, future iterations will build off the solid base seen here today.
If you want to be a part of Maestro, Hidden Pineapple have set up a UserVoice page dedicated to the app. So solicit your ideas, critiques and help shape Maestro going forward! Don't forget to follow them on Twitter for help and questions too at @getmaestro.
