Mailbox is Dropbox's take on email. Heavily gesture-based, its premise is to clear your inbox of clutter and make emailing fuss-free. A feature I really like is the snooze function—swipe emails into the Later section, and set a reminder for follow up. That'll keep those pesky tasks at bay while you finish up other work.

Head to Head: Mail Box vs Inbox by Gmail. I had already given my review of Inbox, but pending this head to head it will be updated. Ok, so it should come to no surprise that mailbox and Inbox share a great deal in common as both are using Gmail as the archetype. Common features: - Gesture controls to: --- Mark as read --- Set reminder - Both offer reminder/to do/alarm functions - Material Design Standout feature: - Multi-function swipe gestures. - Able to place email in categories of; --- List--- to buy, watch or read Drawbacks: Only able to add iCloud or Google accounts.
The fast, fun mobile inbox that puts email in its place. Note: Currently for Gmail and iCloud accounts. Other email platforms coming soon.
Mailbox is a completely redesigned inbox that makes email light, fast, and mobile-friendly. Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they’ll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what's important now.
Mailbox checks your email from the cloud and delivers it to your phone securely. Now with Auto-swipe, Mailbox learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that conversation you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friend to this evening, or route all of your receipts to a list — automatically.
Mailbox’s delightful UI and smart features make getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
