Having used Mailbox since it came out I remember how innovative it was with gestures to delete, file and sort etc. But with more and more features coming to Apple's mail.app I might be inclined to change as it feels like Apple's mail.app is more integrated with iOS...like with most native apps.

Should I switch? What are the pros and cons of Apple's mail.app and how does it compare to Mailbox?

Edit: If it matters I'm using a gmail account.

I switchced from Mailbox, which I loved to Outlook.

Mailbox has been saying more services besides Gmail are coming since it launched, but I haven't seen that yet. I use all the email services for various purposes and Outlook does what Mailbox does with more services to boot as well as access to files on various cloud services.

The lack of being able to add attachments in the Mail.app is a deal breaker and almost the reason I contemplating a switch to Android. After all these years and it still can't be done directly in the Mail.app is ridiculous and mind boggling. I have to wonder if Apple employees even use the Mail.app to get things done because these feature should have been added a long freaking time ago.

There are workarounds to add some attachments, but the main change for that is coming in iOS 9 it seems.
