Mailbox - App Review



Another e-mail App is not necessarily the first thing on your wish list, although one that removes some of the shortcomings of the iOS App might be...

This App comes from the people at Dropbox, so be prepared for some interesting ideas.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The first thing that needs to be done is add an account. This is currently limited to Google and iCloud (with promises of more to come).

You are now (optionally) taken through an interactive tutorial.

Your e-mails are listed as you are used to seeing them but, the handling is different (and much better).

Swipe right to archive an item, long swipe right to send to trash, swipe left to simply delay dealing with the message (and set when you want it to reappear in your inbox), long swipe left to add the message to a list.

Apart from the above-mentioned actions, the whole interface will remind you of the iOS mailbox you already know and love (or not).

Cost
The App is free.

Indispensability
If you want to send attachments, having created an e-mail (as opposed to wanting to send a file by e-mail, and then enter some text) then, this is brilliant. The only downside is the limited e-mail server support (Google and iCloud).

Synchronising with Dropbox also allows you to have your e-mail account in the same state on all your devices.

Dependability
The App works, just as one would expect from Dropbox.

Security
The App needs access to your e-mail accounts and optionally (although it really is a huge plus) Dropbox.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Better e-mail, by far... would be 5 Star with more e-mail accounts supported.
