• 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.

      Looks like somebody learned something from Apple's marketing department: create artificial demand. This "reservation" system is oddly similar to the iPhone pre-order system that sell out in minutes. Good job app developers!

      If you guys knew what you where talking about the reservations would make sense. This is how gmail launched too.

      I have to agree with thazsar and elitejelly.
      And if it only works with Gmail accounts there already is a gmail app so why this?
      There are thousand email apps so why the big deal for another? And this one you cant even use so again WHY?

      Well it is free but you have to wait in line like a sheep. Just install it and ignore it for a few weeks until we get that notification.

      Dang it you're right...how dumb are we? It's not like I don't already have the mail app, so waiting in line really doesn't make me any different than you at this point in time right now does it?

      I'll give it a shot, especially since the official Gmail app has errors reading the ads on MMi.

      Currently I'm #529,898 - lol
