How does this compare to Boxy @thomas_101 ?

@bentossell Nice question!

@bentossell For one thing, it's free.

@vagelim @bentossell in my book that's a bad thing, less chance it'll stick around. Tired of email clients disappearing after I start to love them.

@bentossell It's free and is faster than Boxy on my laptop. Not sure what Boxy is using to render html, but it's for sure a different engine than WMail. WMail is more like how you would get Inbox on Chrome I guess.

@folke we're making huge improvements to Boxy, version 1.0.3 will be smoother and faster, while preserving our unique look. We actually rewritten the whole styling layer to accomplish this, I can't wait to ship the update :)

@bentossell I'm one of these people who have a lot of e-mail accounts across multiple providers. It's a pain that they're all locked away in the web browser with their own individual features, quirks and tools. I wrote WMail to bring these together into a single app that can give me some more native level controls and information, such as unread counts. It started out very much a scratch-your-own-itch project but from the response that I've had a lot of people find it a useful tool which is why I uploaded it to github so that the community can provide suggestions, fixes and help bring the product forward. I've got a list of features that I'm working on next, these include better notifications, support for more e-mail providers and a windows version.

@thomas_101 have you considered using Electron for multi-platform support?

@rubengarciam I do actually use electron! I've got a linux build almost ready for release thanks to great some help from some contributors and I'll be working on windows support soon after!

@bentossell after having used both now for 2-3 weeks this blows boxy out of the water the updates are fast and useful. The speed of (and UI for) switching between accounts is much speedier than boxy and there's even desktop notifications (which from my last check wasn't available with boxy). Granted there's still some polish that needs to come but overall it's my go to main email app. I test a lot of email apps but currently use boxy as the default.

Where can I go to report on bugs, etc.?

@mykecheckonetwo I'll second that. Not working for me. Tried an Inbox account and a Google Apps account. just returns to the add account page after authentication.

Nice! The UI layout looks a lot like Tweetbot
Paul Gosnell@paulgosnell · Founder @fitlinkapp @fitlinkbusiness
Love this. Works perfectly and I've stopped using Chrome profiles to switch between accounts! Feature request: I try and do most things in browser but use a few apps like Twitter, Slack, Skype and now Wmail. I now have multiple apps open (which is fine) but consolidating them into on app interface would be cool. So in Wmail, could additional accounts be added which aren't email clients. So stuff like Skype for Web, Slack for Web, Twitter, etc etc... be included so tapping through the avatars on the left would go through inbox's and other apps? Just a thought and would mean, from a look and feel PoV, that all apps are consolidated into one interface. Probably performance issues there but thought I'd ask...Possible / feasible?

@paulgosnell Hi Paul, a few people have been asking for this and it's something I'm planning on adding. Originally it was just more mail providers, but the I've already got some requests for whatsapp and slack, so the more merrier! In terms of performance, under the hood it uses chrome so performance would be similar to having multiple chrome windows open :)
Paul Gosnell@paulgosnell · Founder @fitlinkapp @fitlinkbusiness
@thomas_101 can't wait to see this additional support for other services! Feels like a new product altogether, plus name :) Keep us posted.

@thomas_101 @paulgosnell That would be awesome! I still use Franz, it is great but taking all things together is better.
