  1. Keep it simple

    Please leave the user interface as simple as possible.

    If I could downvote proposals here I would downvote most proposals to add features to the user interface, particularly to the settings. I think Boxer is excellent as it is.

    This is coming from a programmer who has no difficulties operating complex stuff, but I also want Boxer to be popular. Therefore it should not become a product made by engineers for engineers.

    • Shortcut for combined Inbox

      I'm not sure if it is already available feature. But it would be great to get shortcut on home screen that always takes me to combined Inbox. regular icon takes me to random mailboxes. generally last mailbox I access. notification shortcut also always go to specific mailbox.

      • Add notifications when event is added to shared calendar

        My wife and I share a calendar. I see events she creates, that works great however I have to check to see if she adds events.

        It would be great that when she adds an event I receive a notification that it was added and in reverse, she was notified when I add an event. So really, it should notify if any events are added that werent added by me.

          • One tap access to inbox of each account

            Currently you have to select the account then select inbox. Most apps allow you to get to an account's inbox in one tap. Combined inbox helps some but I like to check accounts one by one.

            • Block link prefetching

              I used https://emailprivacytester.com to send a message to my GMail acount (through a sneakemail.com redirection though I don't think that is relevant).
              I opened the message in the GMail web site and nothing was detected by the Privacy Tester. I allowed images and some privacy leaks were detected (I know that remote images leak privacy).
              Then I opened the message in Boxer and, just by opening it, the Privacy tester site got a link prefetch connection https://emailprivacytester.com/test/link_prefetch that allowed them to get my IP address and full user agent string with details of telephone model and Android build.
              Allowing images…

                • Keeps downloading same messages over and over

                  I am using POP3 and have several email accounts all set to leave the messages on the server so they will be available to my desktop computer.

                  I downloaded all the mail (354 messages). I then selected them all and deleted them. At the bottom of the window it showed 354 deleted. The Combined inbox was empty. I then pulled down in the area for the list of messages, and it downloaded the same 354 messages again. I am able to reproduce this at will. Using the Refresh command downloads the same messages over and over also.

                    • dismiss the notification after using one of the actions

                      When I delete from the notification, or mark as read or whatever, can the notification automatically dismiss?

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

                        Push notifications 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.

                        It could be nice and easy analog for Snooze functionality. Can't believe this feature still don't appeared...

                        • Add week numbers

                          At least here in Finland we use quite often week numbers when we plan our schedules. It'd be nice to have week numbers in the Boxer calendar, too, just like Google added the feature in its calendar app.

                          • Default Calendar

                            I have several calendars synchronized on Boxer (private, work, shared,...)
                            How can I set the default calendar when I create a new event?
                            Every time I create a new event, a shared calendar is selected by default which is quite annoying because 99 % of the time I need the private one.

                            • Calendar hyperlink/URL issue description

                              Calendar event that have a link in them whose description is NOT the URL itself but something else like "Click here" or "Join Meeting" lose the hypertext reference and cannot be used as a URL and is listed as plain text.

                                  • Add option to eliminate long swipe

                                    I continue to find long vs short swipes difficult, often achieving neither. A good solution wd be option to disable long swipe with the result that any sort of sloppy swipe has a single, easy to achieve result for each direction. (It isn't hard to distinguish between left & right swipes.)

                                    • Make the widgets look better please. They are ugly.

                                      The apps are a bit bland, but the widgets are OMG boring. B&W and nothing else.

                                        • Ability to customize quick items in Android notifications

                                          Ability to change the quick actions in the notification for Android. Right now there is del, reply, and read. I want to change one of the options to archive.
