    Pros: 

    The app is very clean and minimalist. Which is great, that's all we need, clean email layouts. It works good and fast.

    Cons: 

    For the moment, when I open one email on the app and then head to Gmail, the email will still figure as 'unread'.

    I've been using this for almost a week (uninstalled Inbox from my phone to try this out 100%) and I've been liking it so far. I'm getting notifications properly and the overall interface is good.

    These are the small things I would correct:

    1) Sometimes I find myself tapping over certain things more than once. For example, I open an email, read it, and then tap the arrow to go back. Nothing happens, and that seems to be because the tapping region around the arrow isn't big enough for my finger. This has happened with a bunch of buttons across the app, not just the 'back' arrow.

    2) If I mark an email as 'Favorite', I'll be able to see it in the 'Favorites' section on every selected account, which is kinda weird. I have two accounts set on the app, they should have separate 'Favorites' sections.

    3) When you receive an email, you open it, and instead of getting the full content of the email, if the sender already sent you something in the past, you will see a list of the emails you received from that person. Then you have to click the last email received. This is useful, it's good to see previous conversations, but I don't find it nice having to tap again to see the email I tapped for previously. Maybe I would separate things a bit. I would show related conversations with that sender at the end of the actual email, but showing the latter fully opened.

    Still, I'm really liking this one! Can't wait to try out the desktop app to get a fully integrated experience. Good work guys and thanks a lot for sharing this with us!

  • Pros: 

    cant use

    Cons: 

    cant see the terms and conditions

    i must accept the terms and conditions to use the app. but there is no link to read them. Also, its not GDPR ready.

Hi Product Hunters! 👋 As someone who’s spent a lot of time working on trying to make email simpler and better, I’m surprised by how much of a difference a people-centric 👩‍💼👨‍💼 Inbox makes. Messages and files are easier to find 🔎 and there’s greater context, clarity, and continuity. 💌 Give Maily a spin - its free 🤑 and you can get it right away via the App Store 📲. Its hot off the press so I’m sure there’s room for improvement - I’d love to know your thoughts here, or you can ping me for a Slack invite! 👻 Cheers! 🍻

@sohelsanghani looks great, but how do you make money to feed the people building this software? Also: the information density is quite low. Is that intentional?
Sohel SanghaniMaker@sohelsanghani · Co-Founder: @MailyApp, @CanaryMailApp
@chrismessina As we did with Canary Mail, @devsanghani and I are first focused on building a great product that people love. We'll figure out monetization down the road. And yes, we've kept information density low since we think the clean aesthetic works well with the people-centric approach - welcome your thoughts in this regard.

@sohelsanghani I'm with you in spirit, I've just seen a lot of mail app carcuses on the side of the highway paved with great ambitions... But if you can get there from here without charging yet -- you'll disprove the rule! ⛳️

I just installed the iPad version and the very first thing I’m greeted with is a “you must accept our terms” screen without a link to what those terms are. This is not cool, especially with something as sensitive as email. What are you doing with our data? You need to rethink your onboarding process, this instantly turned me off your product.
Sohel SanghaniMaker@sohelsanghani · Co-Founder: @MailyApp, @CanaryMailApp
@suprvllan Hmm you're right - looks like we missed linking the in-app onboarding screen, although you can find this both on our website and on the App Store page: https://maily.app/privacy.html We'll fix this ASAP.
