How can we improve Boxer for Android?

"Select All' button

When adding a new account, 100's of messages could come in at once. For a POP account, they all come in unread. I need to tap 100 times to be able to mark them all read.....

We need Select All functionality!

        Hello Mark thank you I was losing my mind with this! I have an iphon 6+ and at first I wasn't sure what you meant by hold down any icon in the inbox

        What he means is the little circle on the email with the letter in it

        Hold that down for 2 seconds

        Can't select all on Android Moto X (2014). No second menu pops up after holding for 2 seconds on an icon

        Select All crashes app with 1500 messages in the "month sync'd". iOS app only selects what is in the current scroll list.

        this would make this my go to app if you make it select all per day.. because there is some days I get 80+ emails and can't check it till later at night. I don't want to hit each individual email but highlight all and choose which to keep... makes my life allot easier

        An "Empty Trash" function is imperative. I cannot believe it was not initially integrated into the app. Shocked

        Yea that holding an icon method for the 2 options doesn't show up for me on nexus 5 either. If everything will all be in one place I need a select all

        A select all would be great in any view. Tried to empty my trash but had to select the mails one by one. Did not see a select all pop up on my Nexus 7.

        They have this already, although you need to know how to do it, rather than it being functionality which is apparent...

        1) press and hold down any icon in the inbox
        2) a 2 option menu will appear from the bottom, select "select all"
        3) all your email icons will show as selected (ticked)
        4) hold and drag left any ticked icon, until you see the actions menu, then release
        5) a actions-menu then appears in the foreground to Mark Read

        Hope this works for you.
