    "The revolutionary mailbox"

    Gmail is one of the most-valued apps in both iOS and Android platforms. However, there's a newcomer app that surprisingly is stealing users' heart: Mailbox. You may think: how can a mailbox app be innovative? Isn't everything said in that issue? Well, it seems it's not. Mailbox provides a friendly way to manage your inbox: simple swipe gestures.

    You'll quickly get the hang of it. Simple right swipe to archive your e-mails, long right swipe to send it to trash. Swipe left for snoozing an e-mail and it will return to your mailbox at the time you choose (later today, in the evening,...). Finally, long swipe left to put it into a list (to read, to buy, to watch or create a new one). A simple system that helps you organize efficiently you inbox by simplifying it to the fullest. Actually, Mailbox unleash the power or archiving e-mails and giving a instant response to them, whatever it will be (lists, snooze, delete).

    It supports multi-account. Actually, it displays them in an unified inbox. To view each account separately, you can tap the lsit icon in the upper left-hand corner. However, only Gmail accounts can be added so far. That's probably its biggest catch along with that it doesn't automatically sync labels. Orchestra, Inc. is working on it: more providers and features will be added.

    Set in a minimalist and cool layout, Mailbox is highly useful and usable. It's aimed to change the way we manage our inbox.

    The fast, fun mobile inbox that puts email in its place.

    Note: Currently for Gmail and iCloud accounts. 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 and delivers it to your phone securely. Now with Auto-swipe, Mailbox learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that conversation you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friend to this evening, or route all of your receipts to a list — automatically.

    Mailbox’s delightful UI and smart features make getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

    “Already the app I use most often.”

    “The best email management app you'll ever use.”
