Im writing this because “users” are giving the application only one star because they are in the queue to sign up, and are impatient. This is a horrible reason because it doesn’t tell you of the merits and problems with the app.
Some points are brought up that the app is marketed poorly, and while I can agree this is probably the worse app launch EVER, that should reflect on Orchestra the organisation, not Mailbox the app.
(what follows is an Emoji-less copy of my review on iTunes that was submitted on Monday 11 February 2013, but with more pictures)
OK there’s nothing ugly about this app. I just felt the need to reference a film I haven’t seen yet.
The app is having a rough start after a huge campaign to get everyone to sign up, or even reserve a place in line. The waiting period had increased exponentially depending on when you signed up. And quite frankly, I don’t blame people for dropping off in the meantime.
But it has promise. If you want to check it out you’ll have to be patient. This is definitely a 3+ star app.
