Boxy 2

The best Mac client for Inbox by Gmail

4.0/5
About

Boxy 2 is the first major update to the powerful and minimal email client for Mac, powered by ‘Inbox by Gmail’. It features a redesigned interface, revamped multi-account and notification system, new themes and features, and tons of improvements.

Would you recommend this product?

Code is poetry.

Pros:

Stand alone mail client for Gmail, manages different accounts, very intuitive and clean.

Cons:

None

Good support and regular updates.

Pros:

The best native Mac app for Inbox by Gmail.

Cons:

Mark as read (which, to be fair, isn't an Inbox feature) would be great.

I think i'l go back with Polymail because of the performances issues.

Pros:

The best Gmail Inbox Client • Clean interface • Multiple separated accounts

Cons:

Slow performances when in front (75%-100%) • Takes a lot of memory (600mb minimum)

The only thing new I saw is the markdown feature which is nice.

However everything else it's the same... Just the regular app with custom CSS styles.

Pros:

Not sure. I guess the markdown feature.

Cons:

It just looks like I payed $4.99 to use the regular Inbox by clicking on an icon on my Dock.

Looking forward to seeing what Boxy comes out with next!

Pros:

Fast, clean view of Gmail

Cons:

Would love to have the option of integrating more Google services (Calendar, Keep)
