Flagging stars need to be bigger! Solid app, just a few issues, flagging stars are too small, and the settings could use some simplifying.
K-9 is better Not a bad mailer, but with latest Android upgrade, would crash whenever I tried to select a message for deletion, etc.. Looking online for solutions did not suggest a very active customer community. Switched back to the original K-9 which appears to have surpassed Kaiten in functionality and stability.
Enjoyed Kaiten E-mail free but one problem I used the free version of Kaiten E-Mail and it was fine but I discovered one significant problem for me. I didn't realize this but I kept using up my alloted monthly digital bandwidth, which for me means I get to now download everything at 2G speeds. I finally figured out which app was using up that bandwidth, it was Kaiten E-Mail free. I assume it was the advertisements. I get more e-mail on my K9 e-mail for my primary e-mail provider and the amount of bandwidth it uses is small compared to the memory bandwidth used by Kaiten E-Mail free. So now, I will once again be well under my limits now that I uninstalled it. Other than this issue, it was a fine app.
This app has cost me friendships and opportunities. I loved the design. I loved the staunch cold-heartedness of it. Like fake Le Corbusier architecture. It worked. It had a clear structure of its usage flow. Kaiten Mail was perfect. But for one of my IMAP accounts it one day stopped sending messages. I never noticed because the composed mail was send without any issues - AT LEAST THE UI SHOWED SO. I was puzzled that the mails didn't show up on the server when accessed from my computer but I thought nothing of it. Not until I tried forwarding an email I just received I noticed something was amiss. My friend, sitting next to me didn't receive the forward. I sent it four times until giving up and sending it by the Share-> command and then sharing to gmail. That worked ! So WTF , I go back to the app and go through the folder view and I notice that there are 8 unsent mails in the OUTBOX - the oldest of them from November, 4 months ago ! I lost two big opportunities in my life to this crapp. I have deleted it and I am now using the fork kalled K-9. It looks identical and it hasn't exhibited any of the annoying problems of this app.
THIS IS DIRECT FROM DEV SITE: November 7, 2013 Problems with Android 4.4 Notice the DATE!!! 1.5 years! Sadly, Kaiten currently doesn’t work very well with Android 4.4 (KitKat). We’re working hard on fixing the problems and hope to have an update ready soon. Used to love this app until it stopped showing the content of emails (text or html). Hoped it was Isolated to my Note 4. Just installed on S6 Edge and still not working. I wrote to developer. Same developer that took my money but it's been almost 3 months NO REPLY. Too bad I can't request refund now. If you have a problem with app do NOT expect assistance from those you paid. They took our $ and ran.
Good but one option missing Can you please add an option to disable the account colors. I do not like the account color bar to the left of my messages. If you can do that I will purchase the pro version.
