A very well-designed app. I love having email, calendar, attachments and contacts in one place. Those who claim it drains their battery might want to check their settings. On polling every 30 minutes, it doesn't even register 1% of my battery use. There's a minor issue with the size of text on multiple thread emails. I hope this will be addressed, because otherwise, it's brilliant.
Did you try and build the worst app of all time? It is painfully slow for every feature, it locks up, the search returns inconsistent results, the contacts folder does not sync well. I expected a much better product from VMware
Sadly we are forced to use this for work and is a change from airwatch, which worked great as to the native email apps. Boxer does not have ability to resize rich text so you have to pinch and zoom all the time which is a right PITA. We are locked to this and it's horrible. I'd rather have my BlackBerry back, that's how bad this app is.
Update: the battery issue is resolved! Hurray! But with the latest update, it's gotten terribly sluggish. Opening an email - just a text email - can take 5 seconds. That's crazy. The use case in mobile is often a quick check-in to make sure there's nothing on fire at work. Waiting 5 seconds to load doesn't fly. Happens on wifi and cellular. I wish I weren't forced to use this app for work. Battery drain. Come on. It's email. What's the root cause here?
The latest release should read "Now with higher power consumption than ever". I'm only giving one star because you can't give zero stars. Please fix the battery use, I'm forced to use your product by my company but it uses so much power, PLEASE FIX THE POWER DRAIN. I've resorted to checking 1/2 hourly for email but your app still uses the most power, are you testing your releases? Have a look at 9folders if you need inspiration for a good user experience.
This app kills my battery. On a full charge, before using boxer, my phone would last 12 hours. Now that I have to use boxer, a full battery only lasts 4 hours. TERRIBLE! I even adjusted the settings to save on battery life and still had no luck.
Android's most productive email client! Great Gmail & Exchange email experience!
