Interesting...a fork of K9, which is a fork of the original Android non-gmail email client. No, I've not tried it, but that situation won't last much longer...thanks.
Better email client

I assumed that the commotion over iDevices being the only sustainable mobile platform because Android users refuse to pay for anything was just FUD.

In this case it is about being free software, not price...

Does the fact that the proprietary version is from the creator of the K9 project play into this value judgement? Would 'slapping on' a price tag to K9 be acceptable if the licence remained the same, assuming that was even possible? How do we unpack liberty and remuneration in a world of app stores?

I have paid to get free software in the past, admittedly far less often since the net got good enough that we didn't bother with tapes and CDs anymore.
