    Pros: 

    Gorgeous, thoughtful UI. Highly functional. Solves real problems!

    Cons: 

    No real "cons" yet, but I wish it allowed exporting tasks to 3rd party systems.

    Best app I've seen in a long time that tries to reinvent the experience and workflow of processing email. The last one being https://emailgame.baydin.com/. Nicely done - and I don't say that lightly!

    Pros: 

    Nice UI, drag-and-drop, visual organization, ability to create custom lists

    Cons: 

    auto-populate emails when composing doesn't work well, not real-time,

    I've been using this for close to a year now and they have been super responsive to my requests and support issues, which is great! I was always unorganized with my email, but now I can put them in my separate lists and easily get through them. I love it.

@milachervenkova I’m always hesitant to allow free software to become an important part of my workflow. You can’t provide a free service forever, so what’s your plan for monetizing?

@howard_keziah Hey Howard, we do have a paid subscription - it is $5/month/user and the different is that you can add more that 2 email accounts and you can use our Delegate feature.

The team has been absolutely amazing in these last 6 months in addressing all the feedback they received at the MVP launch. There is nothing better than hearing back from the team with news on the features you’ve suggested. What’s even better is seeing a new realease message with half of my bucket list in there ;) I’ve stopped using any other clients for my emails. Now there is also a mobile-friendly web version too. i guess a mobile app is my last wish on the bucket list. Great job!

suggestion : would like to have a stronger contrast between read / unread messages, to help w/ faster email processing. A darker shade of blue for unread, or even black, would suit me.

Exciting times for the email market! Just when the world is starting to get bored of the regular mailboxes, there are products that help us make emails better. Slack is such a saviour at reducing email clutter and then there is this that does not let us miss important emails. Amazing stuff. Thank you for making this. Kudos!
