    I am looking for a secondary email app, that to my knowledge does not exist. I know there are emails apps to generate emails, which is NOT what I am looking for. I want a second email app similar to the native one, so that I can check my yahoo email. Reason being, I have several email accounts I want to check. One of my emails I check very frequently, so I am always having to go thru all the steps to switch between email accounts. If I had a second email app, I could leave one app on my frequent email account, and use my native email app to check all the other ones. Does anything like this exist?

    No. Apple doesn't want duplication of functionality.

    Well I'm not sure you can say that. For example, Clocks, Alarms, Calculators, and soon to be web browsers (if it hasn't already happened).

    The web browsers are based on Safari.

    Alarms make sense, but are there any?
    I've not seen any clocks.
    The only calculator I've seen is graphing, which Apple doesn't provide.

    I have 2 email accounts that receive email into the same inbox. Most of my email comes from one of the accounts with very few from my second account Then, when I reply to an email, I just make sure that I am using the correct outgoing email account/server.

    I've seen a couple but haven't used them, so I can't recommend them, and one of them is the famous mBox app (for use with Hotmail accounts).

    There are lots of clocks out there with alarms. Also time zone clocks, stop watches, timers, etc.

    I have mBoxMail and love it. Theoretically, The app itself does duplicate functionality, but Apple still let it through. I have 2 personal email addresses; a hotmail and a gmail. Apple should allow you to have another non-Hotmail email app. Maybe no one wants to develop one.

    There are several general purpose calculators of various kinds too. Dozens if you count special purpose ones.

    That's the only one to my knowledge. I'd love either gmail or yahoo.

    I've been looking for something similar, but... What if you could just get an app that would show unread for a particular inbox and then when you open it it just jumps you to that inbox instead. That way it wouldn't duplicate the behavior of mail.app, but rather just shortcut to each mailbox.

    :D

    Any devs out there? Possible? If so, it shouldn't be too hard. Maybe a jailbroken app or something.

    I like that idea! Doesn't seem too hard conceptually, but then again I know nothing about app development for the iPhone. I'd even pay a buck or two for that!!!
