How can we improve Boxer for iOS?

Unread mail never refreshes, you have to open the inbox wait for refresh and then go back to unread to see the new item(s)

I waited and waited for a new email to show up, but when in unread mail it never refreshes ANYTHING AT ALL, however once I switched to the inbox it finally refreshed, found my new mail and I can see them now under unread.

        Please fix this! This is (was) a major selling point of Boxer Pro, being able to see unread emails across multiple accounts. Having to toggle between inbox for 7 accounts to get them to show up in Unread is ridiculous.

        I see the same issue here. Switching from Unread to Inbox causes email to load but staying in Unread doesn't refresh even though notifications are coming in that new mail has arrived.

        I get the boxer notification of a new incoming mail. I click and it takes me to the emai, however I have to wait eternally till the email finish to download. So what I do is set it as unread again and come back later. In iPhone inbuilt app the new emails are downloaded almost at once. This happened under 4G and with my 100 Mb connection.
        It is really disappointing such a long wait. Please fix it.
        Tack

        Sorry to pitch in here on a negative vibe, but yes, syncing / refresh / push - whatever you want to call it, is terrible.

        Every time I open the app I need to manually refresh my inbox and if seems to take an age for new emails to appear.

        Could you update on this as I'm close to going back to the default mail app?

        I've noticed I'll get a new message icon and open the app but unless I pull down on the inbox it doesn't show my new message. It's annoying to have to pull to sync every time when my app knows there's a new email because it gave me a notification.

        I had the same issues. Did a reboot of the phone, and everything has worked fine since...what promted me to do this was I wanted to set a custom notification sound. When I wanted to do that I got a message that I had to activate the function in system settings, something that was allready done. It is also worth mentioning that this was the first reboot after initital install of Boxer.
