    It is wonderful if you like to tinker with fonts and colors for those visually-impared. However, I also need swipe, send later or snooze, and contact management.

    Apple Mail's swipe function turned me off. You have an extra click to actually archive or delete, and I use swipe to speed up the process. It works great for 1-2 accounts but has been known to have problems if you have a number of accounts. The styles are limited, which is not helpful for someone with a cataract, and there are no extra features like Edison's package tracking and snooze (on iPad/iPhone).

    I just tried it, and I liked how I could alter the template to change the sidebar colors and fonts. This is helpful for someone with visual impairment. However, the swipe feature requires you to swipe and hold to select delete or flag, and that takes extra time. I use swipe to speed up my workflow, so I decided to keep Edison, even though it lacks snooze on my iMac (they replied that the feature is coming...soon).
