Not sure what would be a good way to work this into settings.

On the one hand, that's definitely a "look and feel" thing... on the other hand, the "message list" screen already has settings to customize the look and feel of message lists.

Might end up creating a separate section on the "message list" screen.

dear Kostya,
I hope you are a beautiful girl, so I send you a kiss.
Otherwise, I'll just offer my congratulations and thank you.

You're giving me an idea,
divided we keep the settings of colors based on the fact that a message is read or unread ... for further diversifying the two states. This can be done in the title and in the first few lines of text.


I think the solution to create a sub-menu for this long list of settings, is good...


You are simply the best!

Show must go on!

Hi,

I add a small feature, I think, to develop,

the menu bar (sync, new message, search...) in message list or the bar (waste, replay, replay to all...) inside a message, could be in top or bottom screen, some users like fto have it at top screen (not for me).

ciao

Um, I'm nothing like a beautiful girl. Perhaps your kisses can find better use.

Played with things a bit more, made a new "customize" section on the "message list" screen.

The font sizes are relative adjustments (relative to the default sizes), so that the volume buttons still keep their function.

A puzzle: why does the "go back" icon (in the action bar, left of the app's icon) in these screenshots look like three stripes, and not like the regular "left arrow"?

The idea that I got Adidas ("DIE MARKE MIT DEN 3 STREIFEN") to sponsor the app's development is... nice, but not it.

you are developing the left menu to swap, like Android 4.4 style   ;) 8)

Can I (we) have v. 1.3.7 with color settings?  :P

Correct, it's a navigation drawer.

Not for 1.3.7, I'm still rolling out the 1.3.* series (it's at 50%, to go to 100% tomorrow, if all goes well).

Going to give it a bit of time, to make sure I can issue another update if necessary, with just whatever changes are absolutely necessary.

Then I will be able to merge the new stuff into the main branch and post a new development build.

at the end, you can born AquaMail2, and open a show with G+ and write a very long list of features in Google Play.

Beautiful App!

Actually, I'm thinking about using Google+ for the next release for beta-testing...

There is a way to set this up through Play -- those users who join a Google+ group will get the beta version from Play.

I'm not a big fan of G+, but this would be a good way to involve more users in beta testing. And that would be a useful thing - making it more likely that various issues (with server and device compatibility, not to mention my own bugs :) ) would be discovered before I post a "release" version.

A bit of technical detail:

To reduce the delay before a folder selected with the navigation drawer actually starts animating in, I had to completely change the way message list items are put together. Rather than using standard Android text elements, I'm now using low-level text rendering functions ("draw this piece of text at these coordinates"), doing all the measurement, line breaking, and placement of text in my code.

This made two panel animations much smoother, too (when the message list's width changes while animating). Standard Android code would allocate and throw away memory objects on each animation frame, and then the garbage collector could pause the animation for 50-150ms, pretty much killing it.

As a side effect, this is what made it possible to customize the colors and sizes of individual pieces of text.

At the very least, it will have (it already has) the list of folders, with up-to-date unread counts.

Not sure yet about the list of accounts, since there already is an "account list" window.

Could be nice a configurable menu, based on user desire...
