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.
