Gmail vs Mail app
I've not really read much of anything about the mail app on sense 4 or how it compares to gmail... Usually I just ignore whatever mail app comes pre-loaded on phones because all of my accounts are forwarded into gmail anyway. I was curious and set up one of my gmail accounts in the mail app just for fun. I found myself surprised that I liked so many of the stock sense apps, so I wanted to give mail a try.
I see that it feels very smooth with the elastic scrolling and everything. Pinch to zoom in messages is awesome, but you can't zoom out past the default which is kind of annoying. Having tabs on the bottom for undread/favorites is kind of helpful, but switching folders within an account seems to take an extra step as compared to gmail, and as for favorites, I didn't actually see a way to star things as you can natively in gmail.
The app is very smooth and friendly and I love the sense "look" especially with the brushed aluminum skin that I oh-so love, but I was just wondering if anyone has any more experience with the mail app. Does it have any powerful or helpful features over gmail, or does it have added integration with the other stock HTC apps? Or is it relatively pointless to use unless you're syncing a non-gmail account?
I hope this doesn't come across as a bunch of dumb questions. I'm just curious is all!
