Mailbox is a popular iOS app, it generated so much hype when it launched that nearly a million people lined up as a wait list to get the app. Dropbox eventually acquired the app, it remained as iOS exclusive till now, but things are changing now as it is getting released for other platforms. Dropbox announced today that Mailbox is available now for Android, there is a beta desktop client also, there is no news of a Windows Phone client though.
Mailbox became popular for its ease of use ad simplicity along with features like Snooze that puts emails for later. Mailbox on Android launched today is coming with a unique feature called “Auto-Swipe”, which intelligenly predicts what mail you are going to archive and which mails you are snoozing for later.
Today, we’re proud to announce a new service built directly into Mailbox that learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that thread you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friends until after work, and route receipts to a list — automatically. We call this service Auto-swipe.
Mailbox uses Dropbox syncing for saving your preferences, and Auto-swipe patters across devices and email accounts, no matter what device you use you will have a seamless Mailbox experience according to Dropbox.
