Receiving a minor (yet notable) update, today, is that of Orchestra, Inc‘s minimalist-looking Gmail client, Mailbox. Released for the first time back in February, the (then invite-only) e-mail client claimed to arrive as “completely redesigned inbox” that is designed to make managing your e-mail “light, fast, and mobile-friendly.”
Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they’ll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what’s important now.
Mailbox checks your email from the cloud, then delivers it to your phone securely. You can even get push notifications for new messages. Add all your GMail accounts for speedy access on-the-go.
Whilst small in its size, Mailbox 1.3.2 builds upon Mailbox’s ever-expanding feature-set by adding full support for “Landscape” mode on Apple’s iPhone, also adding the ability to set your “send as” alias for your Gmail account. The latest update to the mail client also includes a bunch of “bug fixes.”
Those looking to use Mailbox as their chosen mail client, going forward, should first note that the app only supports the adding of Gmail accounts at this time. Support for additional e-mail services is expected to be added in the future.
It’s also worth noting at this point that Gmail has its own client available on the App Store, which is a completely FREE download.
