Mailbox update adds support for searching for messages in the cloud
Mailbox, an alternative e-mail client for iOS devices, has been updated with new support for searching through messages stored online. The app distinguishes itself from the default Mail app by allowing users to delete or archive messages by simply swiping them right or left, turning an inbox into a to-do list of sorts. Also new to this release is the ability to set unique signatures for every mail account and to open links in the Chrome iOS app. While currently limited to use with Gmail accounts, the developers have promised that support for other platforms is on the way.
