Mailbox, a powerful replacement for Apple’s stock email client as well as other third-party clients, was released earlier today. The app itself is free, though there is a reservation system in place for users wishing to gain access.
Mailbox is currently restricted to Gmail accounts, though the developers state that they have plans to expand in the future. The reservation system is in place so that the app provides an optimal experience out of the gate, and allows the developers to actively scale their servers at the correct rate.
I’ll have more to say on Mailbox in the coming days – it’s safe to say that I’ve always found iOS’ stock email app lacking in some crucial ways (especially compared to Android, which I used for two and a half years).
How do you find the app? Or – maybe more realistically – what number are you in the reservation line?
