Today is a big day for Mailbox: we’re pleased to announce the public beta of our Mac app and the launch of several new features including draft support and the ability to snooze messages until you get back to your desk.
Mailbox for Mac
Back in April we demoed an early version of Mailbox for Mac, the desktop companion to our mobile inbox. Since then we’ve been inundated with requests for access, and today we’re excited to begin rolling our public beta.
Here’s how the beta rollout works: if you signed up for the wait list, keep an eye on your email over the coming weeks — we’ll be sending you a small attachment that we call a betacoin. This coin will unlock your copy of Mailbox for Mac and turn on the mobile “snooze to desktop” feature.
If you haven’t yet signed up for the beta, you can do so here. We’ll continue to improve the product and grow the number of testers over the coming weeks.
Support for drafts is one of the most common feature requests for Mailbox and becomes even more important when managing an inbox across multiple devices. Along with the rollout of Mailbox for Mac beta, we’re also launching draft support for Mailbox on desktop and iOS (coming soon on Android). Drafts are saved locally to the device you’re on and automatically synced across devices when you’re signed in with your Dropbox.
We hope you enjoy our updates! Please give the new features a test drive and send along feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, we need your help to get this right, and we are so appreciative when you take the time to share your thoughts.
