Popular Mobile Email App Mailbox Gets the Desktop Treatment
In order to manage their emails and maintain some semblance of order in their inbox, users must have a powerful email platform. What’s more, with mobile being such a large component of the business professional’s life today, they need one that can be used across multiple devices.
While the desktop app is still in beta testing, it has been released to the public. As with many beta products, the company states they will be updating and improving the product as the number of users grows during the beta period. Along with the roll out of the beta Mac app, Mailbox introduced a slew of new features including draft support.
Through draft support, users can start an email on one device and finish it on another. This comes in specifically handy for those have the accompanying mailbox app on their iOS device (draft support is reportedly coming soon to Android devices). Drafts will be saved locally to the device the user is working on and will automatically sync across devices when users are signed in with their Dropbox credentials.
In the company’s blog announcement they state users that have previously signed up for the wait list will receive an email over the coming weeks with a betacoin (a single user license) which will unlock their desktop beta app. Those that did not sign up for the wait list can go to Mailbox’s Home Page to request a betacoin.
