Mailbox Android app in the works, says company founder

A Mailbox Android app is in the works, according to company founder Gentry Underwood.

The app, which has generated quite a following, is currently available for the iPhone and (more recently) the iPad, and has been acquired by cloud storage giant Dropbox in March.

In a recent interview with ReadWrite, Underwood revealed one very interesting thing for us Android users: a Mailbox Android app is in the works. Still, mum’s the word when it comes to actually mentioning a release date for the new app, or some specific details.

ReadWrite, however, thinks that an Android app would be a success, and would manage to give Google’s Gmail app a run for its money right on its home turf. Fact is that Mailbox does make email management easier and more intuitive, by using gestures for various actions. You probably wouldn’t mind having more choices, even when it comes to your email app.

Are you looking forward to a Mailbox Android app?

    Can this app interact with the calendar? here’s a test that even the stock email/calendar app from google FAILS on:
    1) Have a friend send you a calendar event(appointment)
    2) Now have your friend *cancel* that appointment

    3) You should receive the cancelled appointment email with a “Remove from Calendar” button – if you don’t see this, and all you can do is delete the email, YOU’VE FAILED. Deleting the email DOES NOT remove the calendar event.

      You do realize that we are talking about an android app in development, not an iOS device. In other words, do what you want with it

    Android. It is considered by many as the best flashlight/torch app for android.

    This app better work better than what is shown in the video. I never saw the user delete 4-5 messages in a row. Where is the checkbox so I can do a mass delete? They bounced through typing a message, the user in the video was typing every character on her Iphone. What about predictive typing with Swiftkey, will this app work with that? Or voice diction?

    How will this app work with a calendar? Sure it allows you to set up reminders for follow up on an email. That should not be this apps best feature.
