So as many of you know I love Mailbox and have been using it since it was in beta. Well I just received an email from them telling me as of February 26, 2016 it’s over. They mention over services are using their swiping and reminder features but in my opinion none of them accomplish this as well. Between this and the demise of Sunrise Calendar I’m running out of favorite apps! Maybe instead of using 3rd party I’ll just wait until Apple or Google r
ip them off become inspired? We shall see, in the mean time here is the official email I received tonight. See you all on #techblab!
It’s with heavy hearts that we let you know Mailbox will shut down on February 26, 2016.
Mailbox ignited a shift in mobile email and many of its innovations are now ubiquitous across the industry. It’s been a great journey, and we’re proud of this impact and grateful to the community that helped make it possible.
When the Mailbox team joined Dropbox in 2013, we shared a passion for simplifying the way people work together. And solving the email problem seemed like a strong complement to the challenges Dropbox was already tackling.
But as we’ve increased our focus on collaboration, we realized there’s only so much an email app can do to fundamentally improve email. We’ve come to believe that the best way for us to improve people’s productivity going forward is to streamline the workflows that generate so much email in the first place.
We know saying goodbye to Mailbox will be hard for many. To help make the transition to a new email client easier, we’ve created guides and export tools. For more information about how we’ll be winding down Mailbox, please visit the Mailbox website.
Thank you to everyone who helped bring Mailbox to life, whether by spreading the word, letting us know what you liked (and didn’t like), or simply using the product. You taught us so much, and we’re deeply grateful.
—The Mailbox Team
