We got a chance to help beta test Mailbox before it is publicly available later this year. Starting today, you can sign up for the Mailbox reservation system.
Here's how it works:
Once you head to the website and sign up, you'll secure your place in line.
Mailbox will send you a text message with your reservation number, which is your place in line.
Along with the reservation number you'll also receive a private code, which you'll need to claim your reservation when the app is ready for download.
Reservations will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. There's no word yet on when Mailbox will be available for everyone. The good news: It'll be free.
Mailbox is one of the best productivity/email management apps we've ever come across. The app is based in simplicity and supports gestures that delete a message, archive it, or remind you to read it later.
If you're worried about privacy and security, Mailbox says the company has gone through a lot of trouble to encrypt messages and ensure its team cannot read your emails.
Soon you'll be able to download Mailbox. Once you've installed the app, go ahead and tap to open.
For now Mailbox only supports Gmail. The first thing you'll want to do is add your address. Tap the blue button.
You'll be taken to a screen where you enter your Gmail address and password.
