Boxy Gmail has bugs/"features" that interrupt important native functionality, and has visual artifacts that are bugs. Boxy Dash ignores preferences, and takes 20+ minutes to notify of new email, making it unhelpful for some of my emails. Shift works better. I regret paying for Boxy. My guess is they jumped to building their other products, like Unreadit, and have let some bugs languish that really hurt the productivity of Boxy Gmail. I've reported issues for awhile, but waited too long to ask for a prorated refund. They said they were willing, but after 90 days their payment processor wouldn't do it. But Boxy team declined to Paypal me, as well, with little explanation. "We can't do that, I am sorry."

Pros:

A less-busy interface for Gmail. Keeps Gmail/Cal in separate apps rather than browser tabs. Hoped it would help "replace" Inbox.

Cons:

Buggy in ways that impact productivity and make Gmail occasionally look worse, and the team has been slow to fix (if at all).

Nonstop action.
Do not waste your money on this terrible "company". The customer service is worse than horrible. It took 17 days to get a response, which was impolite, impersonal, and unethical. They refused to honor their own refund policy or acknowledge obvious facts. Best $14.50 I ever threw down the toilet when I consider the lesson it taught me. Never buy from a company that doesn't even tell you who they are. As far as the actual "product" goes, the one chance I got to open it, it was absolutely nothing more than basic Gmail. Protect your money and time.
