A basic e-mail app called Mailbox, which came out early this year for the iPhone and within weeks had a line of a million users waiting to get access to it, is now being released for the iPad.
Mailbox, which was bought by Dropbox for around 100 million dollars in March, has a different take on dealing with e-mail overload, reports ABC News.
Mailbox CEO Gentry Underwood said that people have to use email whether they like it or not. So they target those people who feel crushed by it, and build an experience that is more delightful.
The iPad app has all the core features of the iPhone app. The user can do four things with each message by simply swiping the message to the right or left: delete it, archive it, set a reminder about it or add it to a to-do list.
The iPad app has some small differences, though. The menu on the left side can be kept open and it has also been adjusted to support external Bluetooth keyboards.
For those who don't have access to Mailbox now, there are a slew of other email apps and add-ons that look to improve your email productivity, including SaneBox and Unroll.me.
