Mailbox, the popular iPhone email app, now has an iPad version – as of today. The app is know for being clean, minimal, and making email management easier. Here’s a slice of its App Store description:
The fast, fun mobile inbox that puts email in its place.
Note: Currently for Gmail only. Other email platforms coming soon.
Mailbox is a completely redesigned inbox that makes email light, fast, and mobile-friendly. Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they’ll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what’s important now.
Mailbox checks your email from the cloud, then delivers it to your phone securely. You can even get push notifications for new messages. Add all your GMail accounts for speedy access on-the-go.
Mailbox makes getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
I’ve tried out Mailbox on the iPhone and briefly on the iPad today. It’s certainly got an elegant and effective UI. The reason I can’t make any great use of the app is that it does not currently support Gmail Labels, which I rely on heavily.
Are any of you Mailbox users, on iPhone, iPad, or both?
Here’s an App Store link for Mailbox; it’s a free app and a universal app designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
