How can we improve Boxer for iOS?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

        • Add option to remove avatars

          Displaying an initial or photo next to each message wastes space and is a visual distraction. I'd love to use Boxer but can't get past this feature.

            • Option to show images in an Email

              I love that you just implemented to privacy option so emails won't load images and scripts but it would be nice if you could add an option to show images when viewing a trusted email.

                  • Increase Viewing Font Size

                    Would like the ability to control the font size for viewing messages (beyond the pinching zoom method).

                    • Sort by sender

                      Right now you can sort email by date, priority, due date, and assign. I would really like to be able to sort by sender too. I makes cleaning up your inbox much faster.

                      • Have push notification for "To Do" items on the date they are due.

                        If you have an item flagged as due tomorrow. At a set time tomorrow, boxer would either push notify you that you have a to do item flagged and due OR resend the email into your inbox similar to the Mailbox application for gmail.

                          Thanks for the awesome feedback on this one! It’s officially in our plans, and I’ll update here once the method of reminders is decided on.

                        • Preview photos in attachments

                          It would be great if all attachments automatically will be downloaded and to have a preview.

                          • Spell check

                            Maybe I'm missing something, but is there no spell check functionality with this app? I love pretty much everything about it, but without this feature using it for business purposes is challenging. Please add this functionality, whether it's dynamic spell checking or an option to check the spelling before you send the message.

                            Thanks!

                                In Outlook you can add categories to your mail messages. In Boxer you can only currently move messages on Exchange, not label them. I would like labeling the message to assign it to a category on Exchange.

                                • Add option to disable the lock icon when switching apps.

                                  While I understand the security benefit of hiding the emails when the app is not in the foreground, the user experience of the blank screen with the lock icon is jarring and I wish I could disable the feature.

                                      • It would be cool if "archive email" could be assigned to a folder of your choice

                                        I put all my emails that I've received in a yearly archive folder, so for example currently its !2014 , and I can choose this with the "move" action, however setting the "archive" behavior to use that folder would save me a tap after swiping.

                                        • Custom actions (using URL schemes)

                                          The ability to add custom actions, ideally using URL schemes.

                                          For example create a scheme to add an email to Pocket Informant as an event (one action) or a task (another action) using their URL schemes.

                                          Simply allow each one a button in the actions box so they can be made quick to access.

                                          I do this in Outlook on my work PC now, moving emails to events (hard landscaped requirement) and tasks (to do at some point) which is impossible in virtually every iOS email app I have tried.
