    Yeah, now I can use this for all my mail. It actually pushes gmail, with their new handling of imap. Of course if the actual mail app still had gmail support (yeah I know its not all their fault, but Mailbox did it) I would still use that. Kind of hate having the badge still up when I leave things in my inbox to deal with.

    I wish they had the feature of fetching profile pictures from facebook/google+, would have made mailbox much more prettier and easy to navigate.

    Keep in mind though that Mailbox was made for Gmail in the first place. Naturally, it would be quicker to adapt to the changes in Gmail than other email applications that are not centred around that particular service. Apple meeds to keep more services in mind while Mailbox is just now delivering more than one. It is well done though, albeit difficult to rely on if you are not just on iOS.
