Well, having a modern mobile "mail client" which makes writing mails as easy and fun as writing a chat message is a nice idea in general, IMHO. The main issue that I have (and why I removed it again) is, that you will quickly start to spam people with 1-2 sentence mails or mails which contain only one attachment if they don't use DeltaChat. But the idea is still nice, I have the feeling that it just need to evolve.
@bjoern Except it's broken by design, it's marketed as an IM, yet uses email
- SMTP is not an IM protocol: Emails can be delayed for several days (e.g. grey listing)
- If an email is delayed, non-technical users will think it's a bug, even though it's perfectly normal
- Most email providers don't like users that send many mails in a short period of time, and will probably blacklist these users as spammers
