@iah you actually using The Feed and Paper Trail? I overall love Hey but I'm not used to looking in those spots so I miss stuff and it's outdated when I see it.
@Digital_Edge I do use it. But not for the important mail. Just some mailinglists on the feed which I don't need to read when it arrives. The paper trail for receipts and other "more" important reference mail.
I can replicate most of those features right now in my email clients of choice, most of the rest can be added to those clients if it's desirable, and right now I can't think of any Hey-feature that can't be done (or implemented) elsewhere.
So I think I'm with @hund here. Besides being new and shiny, what's the selling point of Hey?
@iah @kungtotte @hund I agree with all of that, the interface is really good, thought I admit it just arranges what other clients could do. But #Hey does it very well and I like having it the same on desktop and mobile. Sometimes just making an existing system more convenient or streamlined is enough to beat out what came before.
