Mailbox, the popular mail client on iOS and later became a part of Dropbox, is now on Android. It has been over a year since Dropbox purchased the app and it is just now being released on Android. A new feature called “auto swipe” allows users to archive an email for now and then will automatically archive any similar emails that may arrive in the future.


The Mailbox Android app works in the same way like the iOS version does. The entire app revolves around swipe-based gestures. If you swipe an email  toward the right, it will archive that email. Next if you were to long swipe an email message to the right, it will send it to the trash instead of archiving it. Then if you to swipe a email to the left, you can snooze an email for later and it will come back to your Mailbox at the time that you choose. Then finally if you long swipe a email message to the left, you add it to a list instead of snoozing it for later.

Mailbox is trying to get people to use the app in order to reach Inbox Zero which means you have no emails in your inbox. Currently the Mailbox for Android app only supports Gmail/Google Apps and iCloud accounts and there are more coming soon.

You can find the link for Mailbox on the Google Play Store below.
