MailArchive and iPhone OS4

posted Jul 19, 2010, 3:15 AM by Nathanael Ng

A couple people have emailed to say that viewing attachments isn't working on OS4.  I'm looking into it and will fix it as soon as possible.

Also, with the new features of OS 4, I'll be looking to do some new stuff with MailArchive, e.g. background support, and push from GMail.

Version 1.1 was just approved by Apple and is now available on the App Store.  This adds landscape mode to the search and email screens.


Yahoo support coming

posted Apr 18, 2010, 5:02 AM by Nathanael Ng

Looks like Yahoo use a non-standard IMAP command, which means that Yahoo accounts aren't supported by MailArchive at the minute.  Doesn't look too hard to do, so I intend to support this in the near future.


What's on the Horizon

posted Apr 16, 2010, 9:37 AM by Nathanael Ng

I use my iPhone as the main means of monitoring my email throughout the day, so what I really want is a unified application that will do everything email-related.  This means:
  • Fast start-up time
  • Offline email browsing and searching (check!)
  • New email notifications that will open up this killer app
  • Because I use GMail, starring, archiving, and labelling in-app
  • A GMail threaded mail view would be nice
Email apps out there tend to do one or two of these things very well, but none do all of these things.

But let's walk before we can run!  Here's what I have planned for the immediate future:
  • Landscape mode
  • Minor tweaks/fixes:
    • Checking for new mail automatically on app start-up
    • If I'm browsing my Inbox when I exit the app, I want to go back to exactly where I left off when I re-enter the app
  • Investigating notifications

MailArchive is Live!

posted Apr 13, 2010, 3:35 PM by Nathanael Ng

MailArchive was approved for distribution on 10 April.  When reMail was released, it promised to revolutionize mobile email.  It is my hope that MailArchive will, with the help of the community, continue reMail's mission.

It's free.  Just try it.  If you like it, tell your friends.

If you don't, tell me why, or even better, fix it yourself.  Please get in touch at:
