Mailbox app for iOS hits version 1.2

If you have an iPhone, you are probably aware of Mailbox, whether you have been using it or not. That's because it was one of the few apps in existence that required you to sign up to a waiting list, with the app offering you a countdown of just where you were in the queue. Indeed, there was nothing more demoralising than seeing yourself at 457,942 in that line. But all that has just changed.

Perhaps the investment from a rumoured $100 million sale to Dropbox has filtered through, with Mailbox now swinging open its doors (and servers) to all and sundry with an iPhone. So if the queue put you off in the past, it might be a good time to reacquaint yourself with the app.

If you use Gmail, it's well worth checking out too, as the task management makes keeping on top of a busy inbox so much easier. You can delete with a single swipe, add to folders or delay decisions on mail to a different time of the day. It also handles multiple accounts and sends push notifications, certainly teaching the Gmail app a thing or two.

The new version's selling point is really just that open door policy, although the app also promises a better swipe speed, more time-sensitive message snoozes and some interface tweaks.

As we said, if you have an iPhone and Gmail, it is well worth checking out.
