Ratings and Reviews
Great concept, but no support!?
See a list of contacts ordered by most recent interaction, click one to see all the email that’s been exchanged. Magic!
This is the same way Facebook Messenger works and I really like the people-centric approach. Who thought of it first? hmmm, wish I knew, it’s a very natural way to think about correspondence.
The UI is very clean and minimalistic…. a very nice feel on my mac. It was annoying while ascending the learning curve but I’m willing to put in some effort when there is tangible reward.
Unibox is GREAT for cleanup... when I delete the latest advertisement from Banana Republic I choose to delete ALL of them. My inbox is slowly getting cleaned up as I go about handling new email.
Keep it up!
Update: July 2018: app has stopped working with Yahoo and all of their links to “support” now just go to the home page. No support… wow, I feel abandoned.
Too many issues and not good for security
Unibox is something I have used for the past 3 years… I can’t stand the apple mail app, and prefer Unibox, but HERE is why I give it only 2 stars. Unibox was buggy as all getout and I stuck with it. Now, it works and is stable, but the occasional issue comes up and it seems that the developers are always confused as to how their own app works. Finally, I was hacked recently and after hours of working on it, all of my emails and all apps (this is 20-30 accounts) have all been changed except Unibox. The reason is that Unibox claims to use the servers themselves, but this isn’t true because all of the email passwords were updated. 24 hours later it doesn’t work. Delete and reinstall, and it doesn’t work. This is a serious security issue for myself and the people trying to track down the fraud. I have other speculations, but will just suffice to say that even though I like its functionality I don’t think it’s safe to use. Developer: You need to make this app work right. Simple talk from someone who has used your app profusely. The app seems to just lack very common sense solutions to it’s problems.
Emails as People not tasks
Unibox is totally unique. With other email clients, I felt like each email represented a thing demanding my attention or a task to be done. With Unibox, the focus is on the person who sent the email. When emails come in, I see them as clients and persons I am in conversation with and whom I want to serve. I like how all the conversations with that person are linked, so looking back on previous conversations is made easy. In the Unibox view, I can also see emails that I sent out and am awaiting an answer. I like that reminder, otherwise I may forget that if I don’t get a response, I need to follow up. Finally, I like the attachment view, so I can quickly and easily spot an attachment without having to reopen old emails. Works for me!
