    Please, please, please learn from Google Inbox. So many new email clients come out claiming to be a new way to do email, and in the end they are almost all identical in general layout (three columns!) and features.

    Google Inbox actually refined the email management experience, it didn't just add a million ways to view and search stuff. For example when I pinned/starred items and then archived the grouping they were in, only the non-pinned items got archived. Of course Gmail did not implement this when Inbox shut down and now Gmail is a shitshow.

    Another one is grouping items by date instead of just having this impenetrable infinite list. It was nice being able to scan everything I got in the last week and archive it quickly, it narrowed down the cognitive load of what I had to look at before making the decision to pin, archive, reply, etc.

    It continues to boggle my mind that company after company fail at actually improving email when Google Inbox had it right for years already (and were not just targeting business users!).

      That is very true! There are way too many email clients that do the same thing. Actually, that was the motivation behind Juicy Mail in the first place. Talking about email management, our goal is to turn it into a breeze (instead of treating it like hard work). In fact, the only similarities we have with the traditional email is the already familiar 3 column layout - which is just one of the views we offer. This way everyone can personalize the app to match their preferences.

      We find your feedback very important! Thanks for this, Mattan! We will also be reaching out to everyone within the next few weeks to make sure we're tackling all the issues you might have. If you have any other feedback until then, feel free to reach out.

      All the best, Roman
