Mailbox users will be happy to hear that the iOS email client received an update today. The release, which brings the app to version 2.0, brings about ‘lots of bug fixes and improvements’ as well as 2 new features: Dropbox syncing for preferences and Auto-swipe.

While Dropbox syncing for preferences is fairly self-explanatory, Auto-swipe takes some explaining. The feature was first announced by the Mailbox team earlier this month, and its purpose is to learn your in-app behavior in an effort to automate processes…

Here is your 2.o change log:

Meet Mailbox 2.0

– With Auto-swipe, Mailbox learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions.
– Mailbox now uses Dropbox to store and sync preferences across your devices.
– Lots of bug fixes and improvements

And a quick overview of Auto-swipe:

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. 

In addition to Auto-swipe, Mailbox also unveiled a new Android version earlier this month and announced that it was working on a Mac client. While the Android app has been available for some time, the Mac release is—at the time of this writing—still in beta.

We recently did a post on the top email apps for iPhone, and Mailbox of course made the list. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s worth checking out. You can find the latest version of Mailbox in the App Store, for both the iPhone and iPad (and soon Mac) for free.

    Really? A 2.0 release from a bunch of clowns yet to support custom IMAP! I’ll pass.

    • James

      Calling them clowns feels overly harsh but I agree that it needs SMTP support. I have a work email that I need to access, I feel like more people would need that too. Feels weird to me that this app is so wildly popular with just gmail? Idk.

    • This company…

      The SLOWEST developers in the galaxy – Either that or a bunch of over-pledging dreamers who keep faking their way though it by under-delivering.

      Still, up to this day, they have the nerve to keep saying “IMAP support coming soon”.

      I’m sorry lads. I loved the first app and I was hooked into the breakthrough concept. But you can only postpone and induce for so long.

      The itself brand became a symbol of expectation wrath and a weird sense vexation for me.

      Whenever I think of big players with overly hyped fake promises, I think of Dropbox.

  • JulianZH

    no thanks. stock mail app still the best.

    • Yes, and there is no need for an app that redirects mails to dropbox servers.

      I recently dropped my dropbox account because of condoleezza rice.

    • Jason Baroni

      I would love it to be integrated with Dropbox and Box services, but it is just good the way it is

  • David Gitman

    No thanks ^*

  • camilo

    ill download it when it supports hotmail.

    • Paul Meneshian

      me too

    • Bob

      They’re not interested in supporting other email providers. The apps been out for years. Don’t count on getting Hotmail support anytime soon.

  • Jared

    I stopped using it when the app would always archive any of my deleted mail. If I want to delete it, why do I want it archived?

    • Philip Lafaurie

      Because gmail does not simply delete email.

      • Jason Baroni

        Google does not just delete. You can’t just delete Hangouts messages (!!!) , only archive…

    • Anmol Malhotra

      WTF you’re talking????? :O -_-
      Damn!! I have been using this for past 10 months and I didnt knew about this :O o_O

      • Maxim∑

        All mail providers archive by default btw

    • Kristen Vacketta

      What do you mean? When I swipe all the way to the right (red x) my message is moved to the trash folder.

  • Prathik Nair

    The new dropbox app icon that comes with the update is downright ugly

  • Maxim∑

    A bit harsh on mailbox, its not bad

  • Rupinder S

    so much complaining, jeez…

  • Abinash Shaw

    It’s a wonderfully designed app with very clean UI. Lack of some features doesn’t make it a bad app. I wrote to the devs about complaints mentioned here( IMAP, Hotmail, Exchange etc.) & they assured me they are really working hard to get it all done. So, I will prefer to wait. 🙂

  • Dan

    meh, I’ll stick with Boxer.

    • Jared

      I’m sticking with Boxer as well.

  • pedro

    Stock emal app is the best

  • Decio Arruda

    Been using “Evomail” lately. I think it’s better than Dropbox and also has the same great gesture features.

  • Eric S.

    I’m a Mailbox fan, but I’m seriously waiting for Mail Enhancer Pro to update with support for Quick Actions!

  • iV1n5

    I find this app very very handy!!!

    The only feature I miss is save-to-draft. I’m force to use other mail apps for that…
