Dekko, Ubuntu Phone's native mail client looks good


If we were to define the development of Ubuntu Phone In one sentence, we would say that it "goes slowly, but with good handwriting." That is the first thing that I have thought when seeing the images of Dekko, which will be the default mail client on Ubuntu Phone. The images come to us from the profile of Google Plus by Daniel Wood and in them we can see an email client that seems to have nothing to envy to the default applications of Android or iOS, the systems that dominate the market share of smartphones.

Wood says that «Dekko's development looks great»And he has added the images that you can see in this article to his Google Plus. But when can we see this mail client on Ubuntu mobiles? Wood has not given any answer, so we can think that still we will have to wait some time. If we think about it, it will most likely arrive in April, when the desktop version of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is officially and publicly released.

The images show us an interface that is very reminiscent of the mail clients we know, but with a new air. The icons are completely flat, as in Android and iOS, and they do not have extra textures that would only add dirt to the application. The design is clean and minimalist and we can imagine that it will be compatible with gestures, as we can see in the image that appears the possibility of deleting the message (it is supposed to be by sliding to the right). I can only say that it looks very good, so much so that I would like to have something similar available for Ubuntu, something that seems possible (I will investigate and test it).

We leave you with a video by Daniel Wood in which we can see both the expected convergence and the Dekko application on a big screen.
