Dropbox acquired Mailbox last year and since then, this email app has seen a meteoric rise. Until now, Mailbox was available for mobile devices only. This year in April, Dropbox revealed that it was working on a desktop version of this popular email application. And now, now it is finally available for desktop.
The desktop based Mailbox features come with more or less similar features and UI found on iOS and Android. Like its mobile apps, Mailbox for desktop also learns from the user’s habits and predicts based on their interactions with individual emails. Their preferences are then sent up to the cloud courtesy of Dropbox so that these settings and behaviors are synchronized across all devices on which that particular Mailbox account is used.
On the other side, Mailbox has now included a feature that many users have been asking for a long time – the ability to create drafts. Right now the feature is available on Mailbox for iOS and desktop and soon it will land on the Android app as well.
However the desktop app is currently in beta stage and will only be available to those who have used its mobile apps in the past. Eventually the beta will be rolled out to more users in the near future.
