I depend on this app
Incredibly useful... it delivers on its promise to organize multiple inboxes the way I want. My only wish is to get new mail notifications when I'm not in the app, either as a splash message at the top of the screen or as a badge number on the app icon. And it'd be wonderful if I could adjust notification settings for each specific mailbox. Just saying... but other than that... I depend on this app, and I love it!
I use to love her but it's all over now
Mailboxes use to be exactly what I needed. It allowed family members to check their gmail on my iPad while providing privacy to all. A four numbered PIN gave access to each account. But a problem arose - Mailboxes seemed to think I was offline. I couldn't get my email. No help from the developer means you just get stuck with an app that is broken. Then it magically started working. Now it doesn't...again. Different problem. No app support. Guess I got my 3 bucks worth. Wouldn't recommend it.
If you use more than one email address, or multiple users get their email on your iPad this app is a must.
It would be a nice addition to have it give you a read dot with a number to warn you of incoming mail.
