Mailbox For iPad Is Coming, Mac App Being “Considered”

Updated already? Shake it!

Mailbox may be the best email app out there, but it’s only on the iPhone. In Cult of Mac’s official review, we noted that one of the biggest cons was a lack of iPad support. Because Mailbox has such a distinct workflow for managing email, it’s difficult to use when not present on all devices.

The good news is that Mailbox is coming to the iPad. Orchestra, the developer behind the app, is working on an iPad version as we speak. Other platforms are also being looked at, including the Mac.

Mailbox has been answering a lot of questions on its Twitter account today, revealing that an iPad app is “in the works.” A Mac version is “under consideration.” The email app will also come to Android devices in the future.

Landscape mode typing is also coming to the iPhone version in a future update. Non-Gmail account support still doesn’t appear to be on the distant horizon, with Orchestra noting that “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” So no ETA on anything, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!
