Mailbox Will No Longer Delete Your Email Accounts Thanks To Latest Update

Mailbox-iPhone

Here at Cult of Mac, we love Mailbox, the third-party Gmail client for iOS. But since it was optimized for iOS 7, it has been plagued by a hugely frustrating bug that causes email accounts to be deleted at random. Fortunately, the app’s latest update — which is available from the App Store now — finally fixes the problem.

mailbox update

It appears that today is officially App Update Thursday here on CoM, and I’m not even writing about all the great stuff that my iOS devices sucked down during the night. But I will tell you about Mailbox.

One of the brilliant ways in which Dropbox sort of ingratiates itself to users is the way it hands out extra storage for various tasks. For example, you might get extra Dropbox storage by allowing Dropbox to automatically upload your iPhone photo roll to their servers, or by recommending a new user.

Technically, Dropbox could pretty easily just give everyone a massive amount of storage — say, 100GB — and not impact their business model much (this is the strategy Flickr uses), the gaming aspect of Dropbox is part of its charm. It’s more fun to earn more storage than to simply have storage.

So here’s a nice trick on earning your next Dropbox level up. You can easily add 1GB to your Dropbox account just by linking it to the popular email app, Mailbox.

Mailbox, the miracle mashup of mail and to-do lists, has just seen the first fruit of its Dropbox ownership – Dropbox Attachments.

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.
