Mailbox, the highly anticipated third-party Gmail client for the iPhone from Orchestra, is now available in the App Store. Here’s the essence of why Mailbox is meant to be a better mobile email client:
- Mailbox is light, fast, and mobile-friendly.
- Swipes make checking mail from your phone a delight.
- Snoozes let you put off an email until later and remind you when the time has come.
- Mailbox makes getting to inbox zero, and staying there, a breeze.
The app is free, but you’ll need a reservation code to use it today. These codes were given out on a first-come, first-served basis a few weeks ago to anyone who signed up for the app in advance. This system was put in place to prevent the company’s servers from being overwhelmed, as there is substantial demand for the free app.
Screenshots and video overview:
Those reservations will be filled starting today and continue until all have been filled. While you’re waiting in line for access, the app will let you know roughly how many people are in front of you in the virtual line. The app can send you a push notification when your Gmail account is ready to use with Mailbox.
The app can be downloaded from iTunes now for free. It is kinda popular:
Wow. This is just absurd demand. http://t.co/RongFzfM—
