I downloaded the iOS free app for Mass Effect 3, which you can use for seeing the codex, and send ships to increase galactic readiness, among other things. Fun little app.

enter image description here

However, one feature was that I was going to receive mails from squadmates as I interacted with them in-game.

I am well advanced in the game, already romanced someone, but I've yet to receive a message.

I am logged in with Origin.

Is this a bug? Should I do something in the game to start receiving them? Is the AppStore description a lie?

See that Mail Icon with the arrow in picture 3? You need to click it to have the app pull all the "emails" from the server.

@JuanManuel: No, the developers should feel a little dumb. It's a bad interface to not auto-load and/or label icons. – Mufasa Mar 31 '12 at 14:54
