Missing exchange but otherwise awesome

Awesome app. Clean, quick, intuitive, and "hackable" like another commenter said (spam is my action folder). If exchange mail was possible, I'd buy in a heartbeat! Thanks.

I’ve never been more productive on email

Sift quickly became the most important part of my email routine. It gets me to quickly sort through a stack of new emails by literally presenting them as a stack. This design prompts me to act quickly on emails, without being distracted by the rest of them. I swipe most away while saving some in my inbox to deal with later.

Note: Sift is not a replacement for your full-featured email client. It's a great way to quickly sort your newly arrived email, so you can deal with the important things in your full-featured email client.

Need to add auto-polling or push!!!

This would be my email replacement app by far for gmail on my iPhone except it only gets your email if you manually poll it. No push either. This would be the best thing to happen to email if it had those features!!!
