I was bored yesterday, so this happened.
EDIT: THIS IS GOING TO BE A REAL APP!

What are your thoughts on the 3 bar menu icon? I have clients who are afraid to implement it without the word "Menu" nearby to ensure customers understand its purpose. I of course mention that the Facebook, GMail, and YouTube apps all use it. It's still often an uphill battle to convince them.
I wan't this to be real..haha.
@David Klein I think users have been trained to understand what it means, although it can be confusing if you don't. That might be the reason why Apple hasn't used that style in any of their apps yet.
@Ari I think the 3 horizontal bars are definitely better than the 3 tiny, vertical dots on Android 4.0. ;)
Damn! This is really good!
I like it. I've mentioned to you before how much I like that icon style side menu instead of the usual text list. But my only suggestion on this concept would be to scale the icon sizes down a bit and try to fit (comfortably) all the accessible icons on the screen at once. I just think it would work better if the user didn't have to scroll down that menu. But if there were too many icons to fit on the screen at once then scrolling is not horrible. Just a thought.
Are the colors an arbitrary way to break up what you're reading, or are they representative of mail types (important and personal, unread, possibly spam, etc.)?
Edit: NVM, went back to read comments from a previous shot.
Now that I've seen the swipe interaction revealing reply and delete, I feel like you should also be able to quickly favorite an item. Just a thought.
@Jason Perez The color bars represent read/unread/starred and junk mail. You can see them in action here.
Nice, I love these flat designs. :)
This wil be my new mail app for sure. :)
About that menu icon, I think it works better if you put dots before the three bars, like this
For real, I wish it were real.
@Ari actually i saw it somewhere in the iTunes app
Great shot! love the icons.
Looks really nice! Where did you get that iphone 5 template?
