Mailbox now available for Android with new Auto-swipe service. Plus, announcing the beta for our desktop client.
It’s a big day for Mailbox — and Dropbox too!
First, we are thrilled to introduce Mailbox for Android (available here). We’ve received thousands of requests for an Android app, and after nearly a year of work we’re excited to bring the simplicity of Mailbox to the world’s most popular mobile platform.
With Mailbox for Android, we’re one step closer to bringing the joy of putting email in its place to everyone who wants it.
But what about improving Mailbox for the people who already rely on it?
We set out to tame the inbox, and swipes and snoozes were a great first step. But the amount of email we receive daily is only increasing. We don’t just need better tools for dealing with the mail we get, we need more control over what demands our attention in the first place.
Today, we’re proud to announce a new service built directly into Mailbox that learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that thread you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friends until after work, and route receipts to a list — automatically. We call this service Auto-swipe.
Auto-swipe is something we wanted to release with the first version of Mailbox, but it’s only with recent improvements to our infrastructure that such a smart service has been possible.
Starting today, Mailbox uses Dropbox to sync preferences and Auto-swipe patterns across email accounts and devices. That means you get a seamless experience no matter which device or email account you use. This is part of an ongoing integration of Mailbox into the Dropbox family — we’re working hard to craft magical experiences that are only possible on top of the Dropbox platform.
And that’s not all. Today we’re announcing a private beta of Mailbox for Mac, the desktop companion to the world’s best mobile inbox.
Mailbox for Mac has been another labor of love for our team. It’s the product of painstaking iteration (over, and over, and over) to build the lightest, fastest, most delightful desktop mail client ever. You can watch a demo of the app during the Dropbox keynote, and sign up to get early access here. We’ve still got quite a bit of work to do, but we’ll be adding people to the beta as quickly as we can.
We’re so excited to share these new tools with you, and as always, we’re grateful to have you with us as we journey to transform the inbox and put email in its place.

It’s a special day here at Mailbox HQ. Today our app turns one year old, and we’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to everyone who made this year special.
We are so grateful for our users for always providing amazing feedback, and to our featured photographers who made inbox zero delightful every day. To celebrate, we designed a little tribute to these fabulous folks at http://mailboxapp.com/365. We hope you enjoy revisiting the last 365 days as much as we do.
It’s been an incredible year. Thank you all!
