Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

So this kind of opens the door to David Allen's Getting Things Done [tm] method

Examples above are not strictly UI redesigns, they build on top of existing user-familiarity with current UI and add a process that helps you get on top with emails.


Yes, definitely. Though so far I haven't found a GTD application that actually does all I need (especially talking about including / linking to files), this is pretty much all along the lines I would like to see a mail client to work in 2012. ;)
