Boomerang is a gestures-based e-mail manager for Android
Using gestures to manage e-mail is trend. In fact, it's one of the handiest and fastest way to manage e-mail and let things tied up. Although the official app of is already integrating them, there's still a long way to go. For this reason, apps like Boomerang which, by now, are a step further on this field, can become a great alternative for those concerned about efficiency and productivity.
Boomerang only supports Gmail and Google Apps accounts, so far (more services will be added gradually). Linking your Gmail account to Boomerange is as easy as select the account and type your password. Once the account is linked you can start managing more efficiently your inbox by gestures. Swipe to the right on any e-mail received to archive it (you can undo any action for a few seconds after applying it). Swipe to the left to display a bar of multi-actions that can be performed: archive, delete, mark as unread, tag, star and boomerang. The latter is the genuine feature of this app: boomeranging a message will bring it back to your inbox when you need in the future (tonight at..., tomorrow, in 2 days, next week, in a month, etc.)
Boomerang is set in Holo layout, that's it, with that swipable left-side menu that allows fast access to main features of the app. The way sections and features are displayed makes navigation way more intuitive than other e-mail clients. You can easily switch between your different accounts. The app runs smoothly.
The only catch is related to design: it's overall good but it should be more customizable. In addition, although the added-value feature (access to actions by swiping) is quite clear now, Gmail official app is quite close to this one, and looks better.
By now, Boomerang only integrates Gmail and Google Apps accounts (more will be coming soon).
Featuring advanced functionality like snoozing emails, scheduling email for later, response tracking, and more, Boomerang is the mail client you've been dreaming about. These features, combined with an intuitive gesture system and eye-catching design, make Boomerang the best way to access your Gmail messages on your phone.
If you are having trouble with the app, please EMAIL US at email@example.com so we can help you get things running. It is much easier to troubleshoot via email than via a bad review!

Good job guys, continue on with your innovative ideas... you guys will surely rise to the top. Thanks
Use it for work. Great app
Fantastic app highly recommended from me
Stable, fast and easy to use.
See features for Aquamail and customizations. Has anyone figured out how not to have archived messages show up in my inbox? This is what has me looking around.
Have to say it is actually better than the Gmail app
Great service when using Gmail on my laptop but doesn't integrate with the Gmail app so you have to use this instead. Much slower to update new/sent mail, sometimes get error messages when setting up a boomerang. Needs work.
