Developers Orchestra has released their much anticipated iOS app, Mailbox. The app is currently available for download in the App Store. To prevent the service from being overloaded they are staggering the launch. When you sign-up you are given a number that represents your place in line to activate the service. This staggered launch is allowing the developers to address bugs before the app is available to everyone and also make adjustments to their cloud storage while making sure all users have an enjoyable experience. The line is moving pretty fast to get in, I am in the 64,000 range and just watching myself move up in line.
Mailbox was designed for your Gmail inbox to be light, fast and mobile friendly. You are able to easily swipe messages to your archive or the trash, scan your entire conversation at once with chat-like organization and the able to snooze emails until later with just the tapping of a button. The snooze feature is what has us very interested. You read an email you want to address tomorrow, no problem just tap when you want to be reminded and you are all set. No switching apps or flags.
If you haven’t signed up yet, you can follow this link to Mailbox. If you want to get in on the early stages I suggest you get signed up fast. You can also watch the promotional video below that briefly touches on the features build into Mailbox.
