Dropbox bringing Mailbox to Mac, announces launch of new Carousel photo app.
Dropbox announced on Wednesday that they’re bringing Mailbox from iOS to the Mac. The desktop version will feature a minimalist design with a traditional 3-column layout, and users will be able to control the app using gestures either through the trackpad on Apple’s laptops, or through a Magic Trackpad. This means you can swipe to archive emails just like you do on your phone.
Also coming soon, is Mailbox’s Auto-swipe, which is launching on Android and iOS, and is slated to be ready for desktop once that version launches. Auto-swipe learns from your archive swipe and snooze preferences and tries to deduce what emails you don’t care for, or simply want to read later. It then pre-emptively applies that pattern to future emails, so you only see what is most relevant to you. These preferences are synced by Dropbox so they’ll apply to all your Mailbox devices.
Also announced, was the launch of Carousel, a new app that automatically backs up your photos and videos to your Dropbox account and lets you easily share them with friends using either their phone number or email address. The recipients need not have Dropbox accounts, and files are stored chronologically so you can browse through them the same way you do with the iOS photo app.
Carousel is available for iOS and Android now from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for free.
