If yes, and yes, try Mailbox.

Having gone live on App Store on February 7, the app has reinvented the email inbox, making it light, quick, and cellphone-friendly.

    I\'m in the queue for this app and there are currently over 700,000 people in front of me. Its not a new way to get people interested but us Brits do love queing! However in order for apps to be successful its not about the number of downloads its about the engagement once downloaded! interesting blog here...
