Mac should have inbox count like new iPad version does

The inbox icon on OF 2 for iPad changes its numeric value based on the count of items in the inbox. The current Mac implementation displays a colored line at the edge of the sidebar icon for the inbox.

The iPad has a superior interface implementation on this one. The goal was supposed to be consistency across platforms, so the Mac would benefit from showing the count instead of a line.


Interesting idea and I could definitely see how this could be useful. If you haven’t already, I recommend you email this suggestion to the OmniGroup at

It looks like it does when you have the inbox selected… The count is at the bottom of whichever pane is selected, but not visible in the sidebar. I think it would be nice info to display in the sidebar as well.
