Review by TubbyBartles

Tour de force - download this now! - The OSX Mail client was choking on Gmail, so I went looking for a new email app. I tried 4 or 5 of them, and boy were they clunky - no retina support, bad graphics, things that make it tough when you live in email all day. Then I looked at Unibox. It was clean. However, it was amazing how many of the features I do use - flagging, filing, are there *exactly where you expect them to be*. Most of the time, it’s unobtrusive - you just see the list of people and the current emails for the current person. But when you go to flag, there’s a little star there. When you want to respond, the arrows pop up on the right. An amazing amount of thought went into every pixel - and the fonts & retina display work wonderfully. As strange as it is to say, I’m actually happy OSX Mail failed on me - I never would have found Unibox otherwise. My only suggestions are nits, so I gave it 5 stars: 1. I’d love to see a marker somewhere that shows how many flagged emails I have, otherwise I don’t know if I have any to get back to. 2. I’d really like an option to see a more "Traditional View" that shows subject lines of key emails so I can take in my email at a glance rather than having to click on every user. Maybe a button at the top that slides out subject lines to get a quick overview, but hides them when I let the button go?

Review by DrMantysTobaggon

Since Sierra Update App crashes within seconds of start - Since I updated my Macbook to Sierra, Unibox crashes seconds after I open it. I’ve contaced customer service and they told me to send them my crash reports. That was almost 4 weeks ago and still no fix. And customer service has been no help. They just keep telling me to wait. This is a good app when it work, but just like their mobile app, customer service and the development team does a piss poor job of responding to costumer complaints and concerns.

Version 1.8.2
Review by Bham River Head

Too many issues and not good for security - Unibox is something I have used for the past 3 years… I can’t stand the apple mail app, and prefer Unibox, but HERE is why I give it only 2 stars. Unibox was buggy as all getout and I stuck with it. Now, it works and is stable, but the occasional issue comes up and it seems that the developers are always confused as to how their own app works. Finally, I was hacked recently and after hours of working on it, all of my emails and all apps (this is 20-30 accounts) have all been changed except Unibox. The reason is that Unibox claims to use the servers themselves, but this isn’t true because all of the email passwords were updated. 24 hours later it doesn’t work. Delete and reinstall, and it doesn’t work. This is a serious security issue for myself and the people trying to track down the fraud. I have other speculations, but will just suffice to say that even though I like its functionality I don’t think it’s safe to use. Developer: You need to make this app work right. Simple talk from someone who has used your app profusely. The app seems to just lack very common sense solutions to it’s problems.

Review by kodypro

Unusable since High Sierra update - You would think a paid app that has had access to the developer’s beta for almost 6 month would’ve had these issues figured out, but they don’t and it’s disappointing. As others have said, there is a bug that contacts are not displayed. With the bug and how the UI is, you have to click on invisible areas to see if there is an actual email there. So far I haven’t seen any indication of a fix coming. DO NOT BUY until this issue is resolved.

Version 1.8.2
Review by guategeek

Has great potential, lackluster support - I love the concept behind Unibox, with some tweaks it could be fabulous. Like the option to have group emails show up as an identity rather than having each response show up under a serperate person (this makes it imposible to follow multi contact conversations as you have no clue who’s response goes where in the conversation). Also little things like not having the delete, achive, spam options follow you down an email when you scroll, or the fact that the delete key on my keyboard won’t delete a message. My real complaint though is with support I have contacted them a couple of times and I get unhelpful and snide sounding responses. I wonder if english isn’t thier first language and maybe the communication don’t come across as intended. Be warned that I have been unable to recive messages, and to send at times when I can access my email via other means with out a problem. Over all I realy like what Unibox has going for it and I would love to see it improved and made more stable. I sugest giving it a try.

Review by El Guapo ✔

Email reinvented… magnificently. - I can’t praise Unibox enough. It is by far the best new concept in email management I have ever seen. I started with Pine in 1992, then to Eudora in 1993, Outlook in 1998, Gmail in 2004, and Unibox in 2016 and have stayed with it since that time across all my devices. How is Unibox different? Unibox is all about simplicity and helping you avoid information overload. In short, it displays your inbox by: (1) the name of the sender and (2) in chronological order. No subjects are displayed in the main view, period. The sender’s name is never displayed more than once in the chronological listing. Unibox groups all emails from the sender into one beautifully presented thread. Email subjects are not visible until you click the sender’s name to open the email (or thread, if the sender has ever emailed you before). Conveniently, you are (by default) presented with your entire email history with that sender in chronological order. One click will show you every attachment that sender has ever sent you, easily sortable by file type (in list view mode, or in a resizable thumbnail view mode). Who wants to look at a huge mess of email subjects when opening up your email client? What tends to matter most in email is the *sender* — and, secondarily, the subject — and Unibox has cleverly mastered this point. Managing your inbox with Unibox is a breeze and, to some degree, a pleasure. For example, have you received hundreds of transactional emails or newsletters from various senders over the years -- iTunes newsletters, perhaps? In two simple clicks on the sender’s name, you can Archive or Delete one or all of those emails. I suffered from e-mail overload from three different accounts for years. Unibox has helped me to master my email once again. Gone are the days of being overwhelmed by too many emails. This app was well worth the amount I paid for it. One word of caution: Some other reviewers of this app were frustrated with Unibox because, I believe, they did not realize that the initial sync of all your emails and attachments' details will take 1-3 days to sync fully. (In my case, I had about 300,000 emails in 26 gigabytes spanning 3 separate Gmail accounts. Unibox handled the import of the data with ease over about 2-3 days.) The full power of Unibox’s search capabilities and attachment view modes may not be completely apparent to you until the initial sync has completed, but it will be reasonably functional before that time.
