    ... and what's worse the developer never answered my THREE repeated emails asking for assistance. I waited more than a week to rate this app. If developer had simply responded to me, I wouldn't have had to resort to this. Now I'm sure I will never hear back so money flushed down the toilet.

    Does not work at all... As stated,. It will not connect to emails, but adds several widgets to your list that will be unusable

    Need to be able to change the text on the Widgets. Having three Widgets named "Inbox" is not at all helpful. Also need a better way to specify which account/folder you are selecting for a widget. Again, having it simply say "inbox" without telling me which mail account it goes to is virtually worthless.
