Hello Product Hunters!

I’m super excited to be here. Thanks so much @chrismessina for testing our app and hunting it!

I’m the designer of Boxy, and @frankdilo is the developer. Boxy is a feature-rich Mac client for Inbox by Gmail. We are wrapping the Inbox web interface in a native OS X app that supports notifications, default email client setting, common OS X keyboard shortcuts and multiple accounts.

We’ve been working for months to make it work and look great. Among are favorite features there are a Dark theme and a Reader mode (which we love using to read newsletter comfortably, without the distraction of the full interface).

We’re also pretty excited about our roadmap for future versions, and we’d love to hear what you think!

@linuz90 Looks like a great product! Do you have any more coupon codes left?

@linuz90 I really love the Reader mode! Great feature. I've been wanting a desktop version of Inbox for a while now. This is great! :)

@linuz90 love it, needed it, bought it..BUT doesn't seem to want to connect my work email because we use OneLogin. Any ideas?

@_rsamuelson we're fixing authentication issues with external services right now, sorry for your problem!

Insta-buy for me—I love Inbox and now it's like I have a native app for it. Brilliant work, folks. Only thing I'm not a fan of so far is the Compose button...the fact that the label overlaps the account switcher on hover seems messy. I'd rather it be a FAB like on the web or somewhere on the left side of the menu bar. Minor quibble but that's just not intuitively where I expect a compose button to be.

@mostlymarius thanks a lot Marius, also for your feedback. We care about details so we'll try to fix that!

@linuz90 Fantastic, looking forward to your solution. Next question: is extension support on the roadmap? I'm considering adopting Mixmax so it would be great if I knew it would work with Boxy.

@linuz90 Also, on the topic of shortcuts: I'd personally rather have ⌘1, ⌘2, etc. switch between accounts rather than switching between Inbox, Snoozed, Done. Could that be an option?

@mostlymarius we're also working on better and faster account switching

@mostlymarius I've been using Mixmax since its launch and can't imagine Inbox without it anymore. This is the kind of integration that will make Boxy indispensable :-)

@igorbonatto we totally agree and we hope MixMax will work with us to make this possible
