Mailbox Now Available for Android, Coming Soon to OS X

Popular gesture-based iOS mail client, Mailbox, is now available for Android. A year after Dropbox acquired the email management app, the experience is being pushed to more platforms, with a beta for OS X also on the way. Mailbox for Android will be identical to the app that’s been available on iOS, and will also include a new “Auto-Swipe” feature, which intelligently archives emails based on what emails you’ve archived in the past.

The desktop version of Mailbox employs the same design principles found on mobile, and allows users to perform gestures on their trackpad. Right now, Mailbox for OS X is in beta, though users who want early desktop access can sign up. Dropbox showed off a screenshot of what the app looks like onstage during an event in San Francisco, and it looks terrific.

We loved Mailbox when it came out for iOS more than a year ago, so if you’re looking to change up your inbox habits, and want an intuitive and minimal experience, give the app a shot. There’s no reservation system being employed, unlike when the iOS app launched, and new features are headed to both iOS and Android apps soon.

Mailbox makes it super easy for users to organize, snooze and archive their email. The app is currently available for Gmail and iCloud accounts, with the company promising other email account support coming soon.
