OMG the bloggers go crazy over Mailbox for iPhone…I don’t get it

imageI read the reviews and tried to see why this is revolutionary. Not getting it yet. But every blog headline is telling me this is the best ever. I see conversation mode in emails. And some swiping:

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.
