Mailbox, the popular gesture-based email app owned by Dropbox, has received a small but significant update.
First up are bug fixes, which (among other things) sort out the frustrating problems that have plagued the “reply” and “forward” features of the app’s iPad edition.
More importantly, however, is the app’s integration with App Links, the free and open-source initiative introduced by Facebook last month, that allows quick and straightforward linking between apps.
A video showing how App Links works can be seen below:
According to Dropbox, the addition of App Links lets users “interact with your emailed links right in the apps you already use and love.”
If you don’t use Mailbox already, I’d recommend giving it a go. If you find yourself constantly battling against multiple conversations, its smart approach to emails lets you mute convos you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friend until after work, or route all of your receipts to a list automatically.
Mailbox version 2.0.2 can be downloaded for free from the App Store, available for all iOS devices running iOS 7.0 and above.
