    Hi,
    I'm trying to take on a new project as a developer. One gripe I've always had with our wonderful WP platform 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 am trying to re-create the experience. As WP users i'd like your opinion on the UI (note no Hamburger menus, may add it on later as an extra)!

    If any developers would like to help out with the development of the app i would love to work with you

    The UI looks really nice. Will there also be a dark theme?

    Why is the email dated 2013??? Is this an old project?

    Are you going to use POP3 like it should and not like the buildin App that "sync" some kind of the emails?
    It would be great if the app would download the emails and if an option is set delete them from the server.
    At the moment the buldin App sync them to the phone and if i delete an email from the server they also will be deleted from the phone.

    Hi m3tv,

    Thanks for considering making a new calendar app for WP, personally i feel the official WP one is way behind in terms of look / usage ... there is lots of room for third party apps ... (if MSFT allow more system access)

    i really like the clean look, and yes, i will prefer different colour themes (definitely Dark / Black) ..

    But what as a developer, you need to "sell" your app... (esp if it is going to be a "PAID APP"_

    What is the key advantage / difference between your app vs MSFT SUNRISE (which they will be bring over WP "soon") ... what can your email app do which Sunrise cant ?

    will you take end users feedback and build into future editions / updates ?

    ​cheers!

    The thing I miss the most from WP mail apps is a nice and beautiful label management. I use a lot of labels as subfolders on Gmail, but most apps make it difficult to change from one label to another, or stack all the labels in an ugly list.

    But I really enjoy the design of your app. ;) Very intuitive.

    Thank you haha and I've noticed that, that's why all folders will be a swipe away with this app! Hopefully we can go through with it, Only problem is I need to fund the app development, it takes a lot of developers and time to make a great app and capable of competing against the best WP and Android Mail apps!
