You might remember the excellent promotional campaign around the Mailbox app:
I was disappointed when the app itself arrived though. It felt too much of a halfway house between a normal email app, and what it was trying to do.
It shows you just one email at a time, and offers just three simple things – swipe up to archive/mark unread, swipe down to mark as read, or just reply quickly.
For the way I use my email, that’s a perfect way to use it on my phone. I’m trying to save all the heavy email graft (when needed) for doing on the mac.
Also, the whole three movements thing reminds me massively of The Box Of Delights… “Press it to the left and go swift. Press to the right and go small. Open it to go into the past…”
I would suggest that the Box of Delights has some of the best UX going… anyone know where it is?
