The way Mailbox does this is by allowing you to swipe along any email to immediately get it out of your inbox. Swipe half-way right to archive an email. Swipe all-the-way right to delete it. Swipe half-way left to get back to an email later. Swipe all the way left to file it in a folder. Tap it to open it.
Ok so I can ‘get it out’ of my inbox (archive is really just marking it as read), delete it, or file it away. The only new thing is to set up a reminder to deal with it later. Yeah I occasionally do that already (just drag an email in Outlook to the calendar) but I don’t have an Inbox of zero because I’ve archived, deleted and deferred things… And it intentionally has limited options (that’s a plus apparently).
Someone make it make sense to me and tell me. I’m missing what the web is declaring a revolution.
