I've got that nice icon and included as Navigator current icon as I prefer it.
The reason is because Inbox Manager has been/is/will be obsoleted by Navigator (and metadata in the DR, btw).
OK, I will explain this.

My (future) workflow for new books added to the DR:
I've configured DR to disable automatic thumbnail generation

-> connect with usb and copy new books in proper folders
-> run Navigator -> Go to Recently Added virtual folder (configured with 100 max items)
-> select books and edit: one by one or in batch mode (bulk)
-> fix title and author, generate cover thumbnail, set tags

Ok, this is the idea

We are almost there, I've already written the code to edit book metadata one-by-one (working superbly), and this weekend I'll write bulk edit.

Later I have to study Mackx's hack to see how he implemented multiple tags in global.db, and then add it to DR800+ and Navigator. I think this will be the hardest part.

Sound ok to you? ideas?

EDIT: added a screenshot. Doesn't it look gorgeus?
