Cyanogen also introduced
a new email app, powered by Boxer. The premium version of Boxer will be reaching out to all the Cyanogen users worldwide free of cost. The new email app now fills-in most of the features that were earlier missing from the built-in email app. Some of the functions included are exchange support, multiple account integration, canned responses for quick replies, and different LED settings for different email notifications. Swiping left or right on the message also leads to certain actions.
