Spheroid Icon Pack available for free! Really great icon pack with 12000+ icons!

I bought it for a dollar a long time ago. Probably the single best icon pack on the Play Store, and certainly one of the most comprehensive. Combined with the free Pixel Icon Pack for the few individual changes needed for a better icon, it's what I've been using for a while.

The dev is really cool. All his main icon packs support Afrihost, FNB, Supersport, News24, DSTV Premium and Capitec thanks to me asking him.

Why did All-in-one Gestures app go off the Play Store? Such a brilliant app that makes full screen navigation a joy.

If you have automatic updates will it be removed next time I update?

Awesome app, been using it for years

Nope. Still working on my old Redmi Note 2 that hasn't been updated for ages.

I needed the app for my P20 Lite so I can hide the navigation bar and make most of the screen real estate.

Is it not build in? I have it on my Honor 9 Lite.

Yes but i need to navigate when the bar is hidden and the navigation dock just gets in the way.
Does Honor 9 lite not have offscreen navigation bar, my P10 does? You basically use the fingerprint sensor with presses and gestures to mimic standard navigation bar.

Just want to update this thread and say that imo there is a new king of the email apps. And it's totally free without ads.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.easilydo.mail&hl=en

Email by Edison. Nice modern design, it groups email address together in the overflow menu better than other apps, you can customise the shortcut commands in the status bar, message rendering is spot on and far superior to Gmail whilst being less cluttered than Aqua Mail etc.

Support is also excellent. I asked for rich text stationery settings and they said they're working on it.

Many thanks, I will try. Your post came in right time. Aquamail pi£&ed me off when it started to download in background video ads, consuming large amount of data.

Also, received few days ago from Google a notice about this app:
Hello,

Although you don’t need to take any action, we wanted to let you know that the following third-party apps will no longer be able to access some data in your Google Account, including your Gmail content. This change will go into effect starting 31 March 2019.

Eπvelope
MailTime Pro
We are making this change as part of ongoing efforts to make sure that your data is protected and private. These apps haven’t yet complied with our updated data privacy requirements announced on 8 October 2018.

You can always view, manage and remove apps that you’ve given access to your account by visiting your Google Account.


Thanks,
The Google Accounts team
BTW, I don't understand why Google allowed to share my account information in first place, but it is a different story. I can only remove the app from the list once it is allowed to gather all my information. These are double standards @google, always were.

Hopefully it will get a dark mode.

Why does deleting email from the app delete it from the server too? Is there a setting to prevent that?

It depends on your access method (POP vs IMAP). With POP typically you have a settings for the account whether to remove from the server or not, remove after 30 days or so. With IMAP, message is typically moved to a trash folder, this behaviour is handled in your IMAP account settings (not an app).

Oops, auto-suggestion. Received on Aquamail.

The Email refer to the two Email apps I have on iPhone. One is buggy, crashing all the time, I don't care, but the MailTime Pro is very useful. Do it mean that Google will cut MailTime Pro from my Emails? It looks ridiculous. I don't want Google to decide what is good for me and what wrong.

Most mail clients I've used usually have an option to leave messages on the server when deleted off the phone.
