Needs a few fixes.

Turning up the opacity makes scrolling lag tremendously, to the point where the inbox will look like it's ghosting unless you cut the opacity back to 0%. Additionally, there's no way to send attachments; neither mobile nor desktop mode support this, with desktop mode practically crashing every time the option is selected.

It's a good app, but it has its faults.

It won't let me switch accounts

When I try to add a second account, it opens in a browser window. Please fix.
