    Hey Jean, Thanks a lot for doing this AMA. Loved Sparrow. My question is actually around Inbox. I tried inbox, and had to go back to using Gmail since Inbox lacked some basic functionality that I was used to in Gmail. I'm talking about really basic stuff like like RTL support, and dragging email into the fields.I don't remember all of the stuff that bothered me, it was about 5 months ago that I switched back to Gmail, but let's take the RTL and email dragging as examples. So I was wondering: why didn't Inbox support basic functionality issues like there is in Gmail from the get go? I never doubted that there was great product reasoning behind this, but was always curious about it since this was technology that already existed in Google Gmail. Would love to hear your input on this.

    And again - thanks a lot for this AMA and keep rocking!

      Inbox was built from scratch. The first versions are rarely fully featured and it's a lot of work to built them the correct way from an user experience and engineering way. Inbox/Gmail team is working really hard to bring you all the good stuff!
