A straightforward, functional, easy to set up, easy to use, flexible email app with customisable GUI. Well it's perfect for me !!! Yes, I used to think this was a great app and I used it for quite a while. However problems appeared after updating to Android 5.1.1. I contacted Kaiten but there is no response. I CAN ONLY ASSUME THIS IS NO LONGER A SUPPORTED PRODUCT. SO WHY IS IT STILL FOR SALE?
Has too may bugs I paid for this app more than a year ago and since have made many attempts to start using it on my smartphone and tablet rather than the stock email android app. It has never worked properly. Although boxes are checked for immediate deletion from server, deleted emails still remain on my other device. Also in my Gmail account, read messages continue to show as unread on one device but show as read on other. I liked the K9 Mail on my smartphone and wanted to use Kaiten Mail on my tablet and smartphone but I finally give up and will continue using the stock android email app which is very simple to use and without bells and whistles BUT works seamlessly.
DON'T USE if you use G-mail!!!!! This used to work great until Google changed their security requirements. Only way to make this work now is to downgrade Google's security to allow less security apps access to your Google account. IF YOU CHANGE THIS SETTING-YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO DELETE E-MAIL ON GOOGLE'S SERVER. Deleted pro version that I bought and now using AquaMail Pro...much better!
Project seems to be dead I bought this app because I read that this app is the one which is actively developed while K9 will eventually get updates later on. And because I wanted to support the developer with money. However, the last update is now long time ago. And while K9 already works with OpenKeyChain Kaiten does not. In fact, I don't see any reason why I should stay with Kaiten. K9 seems to be as powerful and there are also add ons.
Move functionality has a small bug + feature requests 1.Every time I move a mail to a folder, the next time I want to move a mail, the previously selected folder is shifted one up, means I have to scroll one up again. 2. Support for colored html mails would be great (viewing them as priority). 3. Server search (IMAP) isn't very reliable / could be improved
Simply the best This the best email app I've tried. The main reason I've tried it the first time (I've started with K9) was for ability have multiple identities, because I create unique aliases for each person I'm in contact with and loved it! There are only a few improvments would make it perfect: 1. easier access to creating new identity, 2. mark as read button for viewing message in split screen, 3. ability open a message in full screen from split screen. 4. respond to emails sent to support team.
