    What are the downsides to Mailbox? I know it only works with Gmail. And I know that I'll need to keep a default Mail app account set up since that mail app is the default mail app. I'm also aware that the Mailbox server has to have access to my Gmail account.

    Anything else though? Any downsides I'm unaware of? Any increased battery drain or anything like that?

    Thanks.

    Really the biggy is that Mailbox copies every single one of your emails to their server. I don't think they are crooked and with a good company like Dropbox behind them I feel ok with my data there but obviously it is one more weak link in a security chain and IMHO more at risk than the giant Google server farm that runs Gmail. What I really wish is GMail would offer a much better ios app that has mailbox like features but I guess that isn't in the cards.

    swipe left on mail gives you the option to 'More' and 'Archive'

    would prefer to change archive to delete!
