Really good site — but it's let down by how the screenshots don't reflect the actual app, which has that distinct cross-platform-build feel.
This is well said. What I saw when I installed the trial is not at all the UI I was expecting. Closer to Mail.app than the Mailbox style I was expecting.
I had the same experience. I wonder if they have forgotten to update the download link for the trial and its still linking to a earlier build.
I'd like it if that were the case, but I think it's just what Duarte described. The screenshots don't reflect the actual design. Here are some of their up-to-date screenshots.
I didn't see that. That's horrible and part false advertising in my opinion.
Yes but keep in mind, most customers aren't designers and won't care.
The IRL UI doesn't look great. But as long as it's quick and usable, it probably won't matter too much unless the target demographic is designers.
So visual design doesn't matter unless your target demographic is designers? ...
lol same experience here too. It was big turn down for me
Aside from feeling misled by the screenshots as others have. It has some really neat features that are fairly innovative: HTML editor, being able to search for files in previous attachments, domain fencing, etc.
As for the website, on the features page it would be useful to have the section navigation as a floating menu, with side arrows, or at the bottom of the page just to make it that tiny bit easier to go to a different section instead of scrolling all the way or using the Home button.
I wonder if it's still based on Thunderbird like it used to be.
The site looks great. However, is that off-perspective icon in the logo throwing anyone else off? Something about it just look reallty "off". I like the concept if the postive / negative space in the icon, but the thing (as a whole) sort of seems to fall apart.
