I COME FROM THE LAND OF ANDROID AND I AM NOT IMPRESSED
Mailbox is brilliantly fast and minimalist, but it's totalitarian in its demands for an empty inbox. I happen to be okay with leaving read emails in my inbox, but Mailbox doesn't have an icon badge for just unread messages: it's either a stationary "1" if there's anything unread or a full count of all emails in my inbox. I played along and started archiving everything, but then other limitations emerged, such as the lack of access to my Gmail labels and the absence of a simple "undo" command when swiping something away. The deficiencies in the other email clients were various, though most felt like just poor design decisions. I was particularly bemused by the apps that tried to refashion email conversations to look like chat messages. Equal parts condescension and functionality obfuscation.
