One of the major drawbacks of AOL app is, it doesn’t allow you to add emails from other company like Hotmail/Gmail or any other IMAP emails. If you use more than one emails service, then we recommend you to use Gmail mobile or Hotmail mobile app. In which you can get all your emails in the single inbox so toggling between different apps.

If you don’t want to use AOL or any other apps, then you can log in to AOL via web-browser also. But managing emails from an app is far easier from a mobile app.
