Highly anticipated by those out there who are perhaps looking to further refine their mail experience on Apple’s iPhone, Orchestra’s Mailbox has this week opened public reservations for its iOS client, set to launch officially in the coming weeks.
Designed primarily for Gmail users, the developers behind Mailbox say that the main goal was to develop a mail client that was “light, fast, and mobile-friendly.” Providing the ability to quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash, one of the really neat – (and perhaps, stand-out) – features of Mailbox is that the app can scan an entire email conversation at once, and instantly organize it just like a chat conversation.
Mailbox checks your email from the cloud, then delivers it to your phone securely. You can even get push notifications for new messages.
Unlike today’s existing mobile mail clients, with Mailbox, you’ll also be able to put-off the e-mails you don’t really need to deal with right now, to this evening, tomorrow, or … heck, why not a few days? — Mailbox lets you put off these messages until later with a simple swipe and a tap. Don’t worry, though, as these “snoozed” emails return to your inbox automatically when you need them, but while they are essentially “hidden” from view, you can immediately focus on what’s important to you – right now.
When was the last time you had a zero inbox? – Using the snooze features mentioned above, in conjunction with algorithmic magic, Mailbox says that you’ll be down to zero in no-time — and staying there, will be a breeze.
After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
We’ve already reserved our mailbox, and we’ll be bringing you our full thoughts on the new mail client once we’ve had a proper chance to play with it. The client’s claims of a zero inbox alone are worthy of your attention, in our opinion.
For now, the video above should show you everything you need to know.
