Mailbox Updated With Integrated Dropbox Attachments



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

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.

Mailbox for iPhone is revolutionary, sure, and it lets you “snooze” your emails to a point later in the day, week, or month. But what if you don’t like the way it does that?

If that doesn’t fit your individual schedule or tastes, here’s how to change it.

The way the app does this is with swipes. Swipe partway across an email to the right and you archive it with a pleasant green checkmark.
