As I understand, for the app in order to make it work all your email has to come to and then through their servers. Which is why it is only working with gmail, that's the only company that was willing so far to give them access in such a way.

Until it is open to all services its a meh in my book.

Agreed. Also, since none of that prioritizing and stuff is going to be visible in the desktop Gmail interface or anything, this is really of limited use. If they also made a Mac OS X app for this, and/or a regular web interface that synced all the work you do on the phone, I could see it making sense. But, honestly, a lot of the emailing I do on a phone is kind of triage anyway. The real work gets done on the desktop with a real keyboard.

It will, actually.

They've stated that it will architect a folder structure in your gmail account that will be visible through browser access. I don't remember exactly what the setup will be, but there will be some sort of interaction with normal gmail login (say from a computer) apart from the iOS app.

For me, this is perfect since I do 99% of my email reading and composing on my iPhone. This will really help me keep everything sorted. Now just need them to start filling reservations faster..

Send them a tweet/email them, they seem to be good about helping people out and retrieving their codes.

1. It gets their name out there for any paid apps they have or create later
2. They can always charge for things like having more than one email working with the app.
3. Hope that this will blow up and someone wants to buy it. Like google or apple.

From their site:

Who knows what they will do but I doubt this company will do ads. I think they will offer alternative services. For example, must like icloud where you get a certain amount of fee space, they may allocate a certain amount of email addresses to free users or some sort of space allocation. With an upgrade you can get more. That is just a thought. I believe I read somewhere that they will offer additional services for a few. Maybe a calendar of sorts?

They want to prove that their product is worth it to users and I doubt they will place ads in your email. It goes against the point of having an email service app in the first place.

Personally, I see little use in third party mail apps. Apple's app works just as well for me and doesn't route my mail through some incapable server.

I really wish apple would revamp their email apps. The osx version is horrible unless you have one account and never use reminders, organizing or anything else.

The reordering is such a smart idea. I wish they made this for OSX as well

People are waiting on a virtual waitlist to hand over their Google login/password to a company they've never heard of, so that company can give them access to their own emails and contacts.

P.T. Barnum was right.

Only 8,600 in front of me but by the time I get to use it... All of the OTHER mail/email apps that are being developed will ready to use.

Imagine the fact that you have to wait for the people in front of you to do it... And they totally forget about it because they are discouraged by the line of people

I actually took some data points and the queue is moving at a rate of 0.4 spots/min. So you can do your own calculation!

My guess is that by Monday you will have access.

Someone hasn't read their privacy policy.

To play devil's advocate, though, if you cared about privacy you probably wouldn't use be using GMail in the first place.

No point getting so excited. In a few weeks google will buy them and put the app dead... As they did with sparrow kinda tragic, the gmail app is still less good than the sparrow app.. Google should have tossed theirs, added push to sparrow and keep going from there. Now I'm betting we will see the same here. They buy it and kill it. Adds its gesture features into the gmail app 1 year later in an half a.ss way with beta stamps all over.

Piss. I couldn't find my reservation info in my email from last month, so I clicked "reserve now" (or whatever) on the app.

Just found the reservation info in a text message; can't figure out how to get back to the "front" screen where it asks for a reservation number or if you want to reserve now. Tried uninstalling and rebooting to no avail. Just goes back to reservation countdown screen. Ideas?
