To expand a column to a width that will show all file names in their entirety, double-click the handle that you would normally drag to expand or shrink the column. To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.

Impossible to link to Google account with iPad mini. Tappable confirmation button completely cropped away. Developer alerted. Film at 11.  2013-08-19 17:16

People should check out Boxer, an alternative mail client built with To Dos in mind for iOS. It works with any mail service, IMAP, iCloud, Exchange etc. Works in a similar fashion to Mailbox, swipe to perform various actions, with a focus on clearing your email Inbox to zero and having a set of emails designated as actionable. No iPad version as of yet, but promised. I have invites if people so wish, @TommyW on Twitter might be best.
