    I recently download the mailbox app and it has been nothing but trouble. When I tried the "Inbox Zero" function (just to see how it worked), it archived all of my emails. After seeing how it worked, I went onto my computer to put the newly archived emails back into my regular inbox. It seemed perfectly fine from my desktop, but there was one problem. When I went back to the Mailbox app on my phone, the archived emails were back in the inbox, but they were completely out of order. There would be some emails from 2 years ago at the top, and some from yesterday in the middle. I would like to have it sorted by date, but I've looked at all the settings and it doesn't seem possible. It seems like it's a problem with the phone, because my default Mail app has the order messed up too. Is there any way to get it back to how it was earlier?

    Flaw in app.

    Messed up sorting is a bug. Maybe they'll fix it. Or not. Other missteps include "delete all" at bottom of trash list rather than top, forcing scrolling of long trash lists; no easy way to merge or move folders; no adding existing gmail folders; long time to reflect gmail label/folder moves of mail's folders in mail, after being moved in gmail or AppleMail.

    After their "waiting list" gimmick I expected a more complete app.Let's see if they fix these missteps, which remind me of the history of endless Windows updates before it became competitively usable.
