Mailbox for Mac opens beta to the public

Mailbox for Mac public beta goes live with new drafts and snooze feature



Mailbox has quickly become one of the most popular email management apps on iOS, and now the public is about to get its first taste of what it can do on the desktop too. The company announced this morning that the first public beta of Mailbox for Mac is now available, and they’ve added a couple of new features to go with it.

Along with opening the app to the public, Mailbox has added the ability to snooze messages until you get back to your desk. Draft support has also been added. New drafts are saved locally on your Mac and automatically sync across all devices you’re signed into with Dropbox.

Mailbox says it plans to bring draft support to iOS and Android soon as well. To participate in the public beta you must sign up first (which you can do here). Once your name comes up on the wait list, Mailbox will email you an invite with a betacoin that will unlock your copy.

No word yet on when to expect the first public release, but the public beta will rollout to testers over the next few weeks, bringing new tools like Auto-swipe and Snooze to reduce email clutter so you can finally reach inbox zero.
