It won't let me switch accounts - When I try to add a second account, it opens in a browser window. Please fix.

Version 1.2
Review by TheHat2

Needs a few fixes. - Turning up the opacity makes scrolling lag tremendously, to the point where the inbox will look like it's ghosting unless you cut the opacity back to 0%. Additionally, there's no way to send attachments; neither mobile nor desktop mode support this, with desktop mode practically crashing every time the option is selected. It's a good app, but it has its faults.
