For far too long has Cyanogen been content with AOSP’s email experience. They want to give their users better, so they’ve teamed up with Boxer to bring an email experience that might actually make you want to use email.
The partnership will make Boxer’s email app the default for the forthcoming Cyanogen Os 12 update, and it will be pre-installed as the email client on devices that ship with Cyanogen OS going forward.
This new partnership between Boxer and Cyanogen brings more than just pre-installation clauses. Boxer’s user interface is getting upgraded to match the look and feel that will be present throughout Cyanogen OS 12, and there are a few unique features that Cyanogen users will have access to that aren’t currently available in the existing Boxer app:
- Customization: Cyanogen users can now set their own left and right swipe actions, notification sounds, account colors for LED email notifications, and create custom inbox folders.
- Integrated Task Management: Users can create a task, set a due date, priority level, and even set an assignee right from their inbox.
- Integrations: Cyanogen users will be able to access popular productivity apps, including Evernote, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and others, right inside their email inbox.
Looks good, sounds good to us. No word on if any of these changes will ever find their way into the Google Play version of Boxer yet, but we’ll be looking to find out. In the meantime take a look at the sneak peak they gave us in the image above and patiently await the Cyanogen OS update we’re all greatly anticipating.
