Spark Adds Rich Text Formatting for Email: Lists, Text Colors, and Highlighting

Today in an update to its iOS and Mac apps, the email client Spark has introduced new rich text formatting options to enable greater flexibility in styling your messages.

Spark already included the expected bold, italics, and underline options, and its macOS version previously allowed creating bulleted or numbered lists, but those list options have now come to iOS as well. Additionally, both Mac and iOS users can now change the color of text in their emails, as well as add highlighting to text.

Rich text support is a particularly important feature for an email app, so I'm glad to see it come to Spark. While I likely won't start sending messages with different colored fonts, it's nice having the variety of options Spark provides here. Lists in particular were something I've missed having in the past, and I like the idea of employing highlights to call out anything of special importance in an email. I've historically used bold for that purpose, but highlighting definitely does an even better job of standing out.

Spark's latest update is available now as a free download for iOS, and the Mac update is coming soon.
