    Hi,
    I'm trying to take on a new project as a developer. One gripe I've always had was the lack of a GOOD windows phone email client. With intuitive gestures and a good UI. I currently use the default email app and must say im not hugely satisfied. I came from using the wonderful Mailbox app on Android and think I should try yo recreate the experience. What do you guys think of the idea?

    Well if it would be possible, it would have its place when you roll the top screen, amongst the wifi, bluetooth, fight mode and rotation lock. It would be a small icon showing how many new emails you have and when you'd click it it would lead to the email client. It would obviously have to fit with other buttons, I don't want Las Vegas on my phone, hehe.

    In my opinion, I'd wait and see how Outlook Mail turns out in Windows 10. I mean, we already know there's an entirely new client being released. Now would seemingly be the absolute worst time to develop a replacement. If Outlook Mail meets all the features of your app, then it'd be a big waste of time.

    Ok. You lost me in the beginning but I'm on track now. :) I say build it. Let me ask you, did the existing Mailbox app work with Outlook? I thought I read somewhere where it did not. The question has nothing to do with what your plans are. Just asking.

    will it be universal?
    I want the same app on my phone and tablet.
    with a sync that works.

    while you are at it, a universal Calendar app is required too.

    If I follow through with the idea than it'll be universal for sure

    Personally I'd wait for a Windows 10 freeze before even considering such an app.
    Don't want to discourage you though. Windows needs a lot of similar apps...

    Not entirely true. Alternatives are always welcome, and OP could recycle the code for another project.
    Waiting would be best for changes to API

    I'm a heavy email user and never really had issues with the wp8.1.1 email client. The new 10 version looks like it'll be even better.

    Agreed, that's what I want to be able to create. Maybe I can use some recycled API haha

    I checked it out personally. It does NOT support Outlook. Its one of those apps that say Outlook and other email facilities will be in their FUTURE plans. I hope your app will support Outlook. :)
