  • Mailbox Released for iOS, Sort of...


    The anticipated Mailbox e-mail client for iOS has been launched in the App Store Thursday. Mailbox will support G-mail for the time being, and gain support for other e-mail clients in the future.

    Because the registration for Mailbox is being performed via reservation, users will need to reserve their place to start using the new client. There are over 400,000 people waiting in line currently for Mailbox. The reservation system allows the creators of mailbox to obtain the server hardware required to support the client. People who have already reserved their Mailbox can sign in with their reservation details that they were asked to save, and see their place in line.

    Mailbox has been designed to be light and fast, and will support push notifications. The user interface is also great-looking. Users will be able to swipe e-mail messages to delete messages, and even snooze e-mails for later with the tap of a button. The snooze feature allows you to read what is important 'now' and what's not important 'later.'

    The Mailbox client is free and can be downloaded from this link.

      I deleted it before even trying. I got tired of waiting, and having to re-register with the ticket system when I restored my iPhone.

      If you just restore and/or restore from backup, It will because it's stored in iCloud.

      I always DFU restore and set up as a new device.

      Yeah it was literally the biggest letdown I have had in a while. I blindly followed it like most, then when it finally showed up, I realized it was a dumber and uglier version of the ios native app. NO need for this whatsoever. Just like the gmail app, useless. Apple does it best.

      That's exactly what I did, and I kept my place in line. Using it for the past week.

      What happens if you have access and then delete the app?

      That's an interesting comment because, particularly on the iPad, I find the Gmail app to be far superior to the stock mail app for that account. I'm looking forward to trying Mailbox.

      Edit: OK, I'm finally in. Anybody know how you transfer existing "labels" you've created in Gmail over to Mailbox as "lists"? Is it even possible? That could be a pain in the arse, because I use a lot of labels in Gmail.

      If anyone cares, I've figured out how to deal with labels you've set up on Gmail prior to beginning to use the Mailbox app.

      You just need to go into your settings in Gmail (desktop), then go to the Labels tab and edit each label to "nest" under the [Mailbox] label that has now been created when you set up the Mailbox app.

      I did this and then went into Mailbox, and all of my previous labels (with emails) are now in the Lists section.

      I like this app a lot and don't understand the negativity. For Gmail, it's superior (in my opinion) to the stock iOS mail app.

      Wish they would hurry up and add other email clients
